How to Make a Facial Mask At Home

Beauty and skin care products are expensive and I am sure you know that from experience. I know that if these products worked as they say they did I wouldn't mind spending the extra dollars. The problem is that most of the skin care products out there don't work as advertised.

Spending many dollars to buy a facial product that claims that has all the great natural ingredients you need for great looking skin and then trying it and being disappointed is something many women have to go through often.

One of the reasons skin care products might not work for you but might work for someone else is that not everybody has the same skin type. What product works on your friend's skin, might not work for you and vice versa.

If you buy a product for your skin type, it could have adverse effect as there could be some chemical or ingredient which could cause a reaction on your skin. Moral of the story. Not all cosmetic products work well for everyone's skin.

Cosmetics labeled as having natural ingredients do contain some amount of artificial chemicals or elements. With over priced cosmetics made from natural ingredients, many people have started preparing beauty products at home. Making a facial mask at home with all the ingredients available in the kitchen is quite easy and inexpensive.

Create a salon-like atmosphere while doing a facial at home. Ideally they tie your hair in high ponytail or make you wear a band around head. Choose to do what ever you feel comfortable about.

Start by splashing tepid water all over your face. Massage your face gently with water. Repeat it twice or thrice and let your face air dry. While your face is still damp, massage vitamin E on your face. Let your face soak the oil for 5 minutes or so. Use a mild soap to remove the oil from your face. Again splash your face with water at room temperature. Repeat 2 or 3 times. Avoid towel drying your face.

Next, make your facial mask. Blend 1 egg white or fresh Aloe Vera juice of same quantity, 2 tsp vegetable oil and 1 tsp pure apple juice in a clean bowl. Dip your hands in the facial mask and apply the mask to your skin. Start with your chin, move upwards and then outwards skipping the area around the eyes and lips. Now you have to just sit back and relax. Cover your eyes with wet cotton balls or cucumber pieces. The mask has to dry completely -- an ideal time for a small nap. Mask takes anywhere from 20-30 minutes to dry. You'll feel your skin tighten when the mask is dry. Splash water all over face and gently remove the mask with light massage strokes on your face. Continue doing this till your face is cleared of the entire facial mask. Let your face air dry.

Use this home made facial mask once or twice a week or depending up on the time you have on hand. You will feel fresh and have much younger looking face all the time. As you can see you don't need to spend an arm and a leg on beauty products if you know exactly what to do.
