DIY Beauty Secrets: Episode 1 – Facial Masks

Hello! Lina here! 🙂

In today’s post, I’ll start a series here on the blog called: “DIY Beauty Secrets”, where I’m gonna be chatting and showing recipes for your face, body and hair using: Essential Oils, Carrier Oils, and Natural Ingredients.

So, let’s start with easy-peasy ones. Today it’s gonna be face masks for each skin type with maximum 3 ingredients and those you’ll probably find inside your kitchen. I should add that theoretically, all the ingredients here are good for everyone but the right combination is what make them powerful for each skin’s needs. Also, you don’t need to worry if you have sensitive skin because all the ingredients required are organic and natural.

  2. Squeeze half the lemon before adding it’s juice to your beaten egg white.
  3. Apply the face mask over your skin (avoiding the eyes and mouth).
  4. Leave the mask on your skin for about 30 minutes (skin tightening and a little discomfort are normal while the mask is drying on your face, but this effect quickly disappears once you remove it).
  5. Rinse it off with warm water (you can use a wet warm cloth).

Important Notes:

  • Make sure you’re not wearing makeup before you apply any of these masks.
  • Wash your face with warm water before you apply them. By doing that you’ll dilate your pores and your skin will receive all the benefits from your mask.
  • Always rinse them off with warm water and if you are using a cloth, make sure that it is properly wet and use it gently.
  • It is important that you apply a moisturizer after any of these masks.
  • To feel and see the results with more efficacy, repeat them at least once a week.
  • Don’t forget that your neck’s skin is as important as your face’s skin.
  • Always use natural and organic ingredients.
