Homemade facial masks (acne,oily skin) and more…

Hello girls!

I have bad skin with acne,and I am trying to eat more clean and avoid pasta and bread as much as possible,and also I have added more fruits and vegetables to my diet…I have been pretty strict with this diet and have been on it for about one month so It is to early for me to tell if my skin is better or not..because I usually have 1 week when my my skin look better and most of the acne is healed,but then it all pops up like crazy again…so it is like this every month,I am “acne free” 1 week per month…it is very frustrating and I don’t feel so beautiful when I have this bad skin condition..

I went to the doctor today again,and he will send me to a skin expert so It can take months before I can get an appointment,so I was thinking if I could try something more for my skin when I am waiting for the appointment

I also have a acne soap I use every morning and night before bed,and use a facial cream that have A vitamin acid

Now, I was search on the net for home made facial masks and found some I want to try,so I will share with you what I found and this might interest you too if you would like to try a home made mask:-) I will paste it here..

 

Banana Mask for Oily Skin

This is a soothing face mask and great if you have bananas around the house.

Ingredients:

  • 1 banana, preferably ripe (you can keep ripe bananas in the freezer. Let it thaw before using)
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • An orange or a lemon

Preparation:

Mix the banana and honey together.
Add a few drops of juice from an orange or a lemon.
Apply to face for 15 minutes before rinsing with a cool washcloth or a steaming warm washcloth.

Homemade Aspirin Mask Helps Heal Acne, Pimples, Rashes

 

Over on Makeupalley.com, aspirin masks are a hot topic. Why? Apparently, aspirin is brilliant at spot-treating pimples, clearing up acne and itchy patches. In fact, the aspirin mask gets more than 2030 reviews — more than any individual makeup, skincare or hair product — on Makeupalley so I had to share it with you because 85 percent of these reviews are by women who would “try it again.” Keep in mind that I haven’t had my own pimple to try this on, so I don’t have personal experience with aspirin as a pimple-healer. But here’s how it’s purported to work.

Prep Time: 7 minutes

Total Time: 7 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1-3 aspirin
  • Coffee cup or glass cup
  • Shallow dish
  • Warm honey (runny honey), moisturizer made for the face or natural oil such as almond, olive or coconut

Preparation:

  • Depending on the amount of coverage needed, use 1-3 aspirin.
  • Crush the aspirin into small pieces by rolling a coffee cup or glass cup over them. Place aspirin in a shallow dish.
  • Stir in a few drops of water to help the aspirin dissolve into a paste.
  • Add warm honey, moisturizer or a bit of oil (almond, olive or coconut works). Stir well.
  • Apply as a mask or spot treat the pimple or itchy area. Allow to dry. Wash off after 10 minutes.

Strawberry Acne Mask

Why buy acne products when you use strawberries? Strawberries are a natural source of salicylic acid which is found in most over-the-counter acne medicines, according to Janice Cox, the author of “Natural Beauty at Home.” This is Cox’s recipe. The yogurt is great for soothing skin.

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup strawberries (fresh, not frozen please)
  • 1/4 cup sour cream or non-flavored yogurt

Preparation:

Mash together the strawberries and yogurt or sour cream. Spread on face and wash after 10-15 minutes.

Simple Mask for Oily, Acne-Prone Skin

 

This recipe is adapted from Paula Begoun’s book, ‘The Beauty Bible’. According to Begoun in her famous book, Milk of Magnesia is actually liquid magnesium. Like clay, it’s from the earth, but has disinfecting qualities and absorbs oil better than clay. A friend of mine tried this and said her skin never felt better. She loved the natural qualities of the mask, which she doesn’t find in storebought products.

Ingredients:

  • 1 bottle Milk of Magnesia (Paula insists no flavors, please)

Preparation:

Apply the Milk of Magnesia to face.
Wash with cool washcloth after 10-15 minutes.

Green Clay Mask for Oily Skin

When it comes to face masks, there’s no better clay than green clay, also known as “bentonite.” This purifying mask is wonderful for oily skin and was adapted from a recipe found in the book, “Natural Beauty Recipe Book.” You can get all of these ingredients in any natural food store or online. You can get the apricot kernel oil and the palmarosa essential oil online.

Ingredients:

  • 1 tbsp green clay (you can get this in any health store)
  • 1 tsp apricot kernel oil
  • 3 drops of palmarosa essential oil

Preparation:

Mix the palmarosa and apricot oils together. Add a few drops of warm water. Mix together and add more water if need be to get a good, spreadable paste. Apply mask. Let dry for 10 minutes. Rinse off with a warm washcloth

Homemade Clay Mask for Oily, Dry, Combination and Acne-Prone Skin

Clay masks are soothing and healing to skin. You can pick up a basic green clay (also known as bentonite clay) from any health-food store. Clay comes in powder form. Add water if you have oily skin, jojoba oil if you have dry skin or milk for combo skin to create a workable mask.

Ingredients:

  • A basic fuller’s earth clay, also known as bentonite or green clay (if skin is sensitive, French green clay is a good option)
  • 1 tsp honey
  • water (oily skin), half and half (combination skin) or jojoba oil (dry skin)
  • Optional: your favorite essential oil

Preparation:

I find it’s best to mix 2 parts liquid to 1 part clay.

Choose your liquid based on your skin type. If you have oily skin, choose water. Combination skin, choose milk or half and half and if you have dry skin, opt for jojoba oil.

Mix in a bit of honey.

Add more liquid if clay is too dry.

Add a few drops of the essential oil (this step is optional).

Keep mask on for 15 minutes.

Rinse off with a steaming washcloth (I like to steam my washcloths with a couple drops of the essential oils in the microwave, but make sure washcloth is not too hot).

Homemade Juice Mask for Oily Skin

Strawberry and lemon juice contain natural astringents. Note: Recipe works for two people, so invite a friend, or cut recipe in half for just you.

Ingredients:

  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 2 egg whites
  • 3 tsp honey
  • 1 cup strawberries
  • Optional: 4 drops of your favorite essential oils

Preparation:

Mash or blend the above ingredients.
Smooth over face.
Let it stay for 10 minutes.
Rinse

    I really love the Lady Soma Antioxidant Berry Masque, it does what it claims. My face really feels fresh and clean of all impurities. I dont have any crazy acne or anything like that but i do have oily skin and blackheads…. It’s a wonderful at home exfoliation mask, at such an affordable price. I don’t see myself buying anything else. I would definitely recommend this to others.
