Facial masks are a blessing, literally. They can help you get that peaches and cream glow we’ve all come to love. Facial masks are used for a variety of purposes. They are used to deep-clean, exfoliate and softening the skin. It can also be used to stimulate a sluggish complexion, making your face come alive.
- For normal, dry or highly sensitive skin, mash half of a very ripe, small peach with two teaspoon of heavy cream. Apply the paste to your face and neck, leave for thirty minutes and rinse off with warm water.
- For sunburned or irritated skin, use a bottle of milk of magnesia and apply in a thin layer all over the face, throat and chest. Allow it to dry for 5 to 10 minutes, rinse with warm water and apply a light moisturizer.
- An apple a day keeps the doctor away, and it also keeps dry skin buildup away. Though apples are good for eating, they can also be used as a facial mask. Apples are good facial mask essentials. They contain malic acid, this sloughs off the surface layer of dead skin cells. For a delicious apple facial mask, mix half of a small peeled apple in the blender with little water and blend until smooth. Apply the pulpy liquid with a cotton ball to your face, throat, and chest. Allow to dry for 15 to 20 minutes, rinse with warm water.
Go green and embrace nature’s natural facial masks. Stay healthy and beautiful.
