made from chemicals, from stores in order to enhance the quality

and can even help you feel great. These products are a testament
to the great qualities that are inherent in the most ordinary

Creating facial masks from common kitchen products has
been done for years. Even the most common and ordinary
products make great facial masks. While essential oils
and special clays can be very effective, there is no need
to use them if you do not wish to. Simply head to your
kitchen cupboards and refrigerators and create any one
of the following face masks, and feel the good effects
almost immediately. For best results, it is recommended
that you apply a facial mask once a week, rinsing your
face first with warm water and then rinsing with cold (to
close the pores) after you finish removing the mask.
mask. It seems a little strange to create a face mask
using eggs, but it is a tried and true method for toning
the skin. The egg actually helps tighten the skin, giving
you a firmer face that is less wrinkled and less prone
to sagging. Simply beat one egg white until it is stiff.
Then you just smooth it over your entire face. After 20
minutes, remove the mask. You can adjust the mask to your
skin type by adding lemon juice to the egg white (just
a drop) for oily skin or putting in a bit of honey for
dry skin. The skin on the inside of the shell can actually
work as an acne treatment. Just place the skin over the
breakout and leave on for 30 minute or even overnight to
help reduce the appearance of the acne.
mask. This is a very easy mask. It is cleansing,
and the honey acts in the same way as an antibacterial.
You need warm, runny honey. You can run your honey container
under warm water or soften it in the microwave to get it
to the desired consistency. Be careful with the microwave,
however, as you may get the honey too hot. You just want
it warm and runny, not scalding. Smear the honey all over
your face. Even those with sensitive skin can usually use
this treatment. After about two minutes, it will start
to feel as though it is pulling. This is when you rinse
the mask off with warm water (follow with cold as soon
as all of the honey is off of your face).
mask from kitchen items. If you want to help control
your acne, a simple mask made from what you keep in your
kitchen can assist you in your fight against acne. For
a major breakout, form a paste using one half cup strained
tomato pulp and powdered milk. When there is enough to
make a paste, blend until the mixture is no longer pasty,
but is smooth. Then apply and leave for 20 minutes. You
should wash this off with warm water. Because Vitamin C
and Potassium are found in tomatoes, this will also help
your skin heal from the acne.
You can create a variety of nourishing masks if instead
of tomato you use carrots, bananas, or cucumbers. Simply
mash whatever you are using (you will have to steam the
carrots first) and substitute it for the tomato pulp.
alpha hydroxy mask. Take four or five large
strawberries and mash them up until they become a thick
pulp. Then cover the face thickly with the pulp. Lie down
quietly for about 20 minutes before washing with warm water
followed by cold. It is important to note that this treatment
is not a good idea for extra sensitive skin.
These easy to make facial masks are fun and inexpensive
to create from items found in the kitchen. They are also
quite effective. One more treatment that can help with
rough facial skin is to use mayonnaise. This also works
on your elbows. Make sure you use only a light layer, and
make sure that you only leave it on for 15 minutes before
washing it off.
