Maintaining beauty and beauty is not about using expensive creams and preparations that, with prolonged use, may not be indifferent to the health of our skin. You can also be tempted to make simple, but effective cosmetics made from home products. Here are some face masks that you can make yourself.

Homemade masks – healthy and cheap

Why is it worth to prepare facial masks on your own from commonly available products? First of all, we know what is in such cosmetics. We are sure that we used natural products to make them. They rejuvenate, nourish and perfectly moisturize the skin. Another great advantage of homemade masks is that they do not cost much. They are healthy, cheap and effective.

Types of homemade masks

DIY face masks do not differ in application from expensive cosmetics that we can buy already prepared for application. They can be divided, by type:

  • rejuvenating,
  • purifying,
  • moisturizing.

It is worth remembering to apply the mask always at about 18.00 on previously cleansed facial skin. After removing the mask with water, you should wipe the skin with a cotton ball soaked in tonic

Homemade yeast face mask – soothes inflammation

a ¼ cube of fresh yeast and a tablespoon of warm milk is enough to make a homemade mask against inflammation. Make a slurry from the mentioned ingredients and apply it to your face, and leave it on for about 20 minutes. To remove the mask, just use warm water. What results will be brought by regular use of the preparation? In the case of skin with imperfections, it is possible to alleviate acne lesions and help in the fight against eczema scars. The skin changes will be cleaned and dried. Such a preparation should be used once a week.

Face mask with avocado – moisturizes the skin

Beneficial effects for our skin are also brought by the use of avocado. To make such a nourishing mask you will need:

  • half an avocado,
  • 2 tablespoons of oatmeal,
  • 2 tablespoons of honey,
  • a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar,
  • a teaspoon of lemon juice.

Mash avocado with a fork or grind it with a blender. So prepared pulp needs to be mixed with other ingredients. The whole mixture should be applied on the face for at least 20 minutes, after which it should be washed off with lukewarm water. The purpose of using this mask is to moisturize the skin, remove dead skin cells and soothe irritated skin

For dry skin – yolk mask

The secret of this mask is to warm up the skin just before its application. How to do it? There is no difficulty in this: just put a towel moistened with warm water on your face. The temperature of our skin will rise sufficiently. The next step is to apply fresh, slightly beaten egg yolk to the face, which is not a particularly complicated procedure. We should keep such a mask on the skin for about 30 minutes. It should be removed with boiled water. Why is it worth using? First of all, egg yolk contains a lot of vitamin A and cholesterol, which will significantly improve the condition of dry skin in need of nutrition.

Moisturizing mask with rice

Wisdom from far Asia is highly valued today, also in the field of medicine. Is it the same with face masks inspired by Asian ways to improve skin condition? It is worth trying, especially that the idea for one of them is extremely simple. All you need is 3 tablespoons of rice, cooking water and a tablespoon each of milk and honey. Boil the grains until they are cooked, then rinse – it is important to leave the cooking water. Crush the seeds with milk and honey. Apply the slurry for half an hour and rinse with water from cooking rice. We repeat this at least twice a week. Why is it worth trying? The skin becomes smoother and better moisturized, and wrinkles become shallower.
