How to make a natural face pack
The cold weather can take its toll on your skin, so why not look after your complexion? Exfoliate regularly, book a course of Botox and create your own face masks – you know you’re worth it!
If you fancy knocking up your own beauty products, here are five natural concoctions to revitalise your skin.
The salicylic acid found in strawberries is great for acne, so try out this luxurious, homemade face mask. Mash up a handful of ripe, juicy strawberries and mix them with sour cream. Leave the mixture on your face for a good 20 minutes (while you relax with a magazine) and wash it off using warm water. The healing properties of this tasty fruit will help cure any skin ailments and the yoghurt will have a nice cooling affect.
Butter and water
If you’re suffering from dry, flaky or rough skin, mix butter and water together and apply it to your problem areas. This mixture can soften your complexion when left on for around 20 minutes and is a great alternative to shop-bought products. It’s simple to make and is a good way of using the contents of your fridge. Many body butters claim to revitalise your appearance, but if you’re in need of a quick-fix, check this recipe out.
Lemon and egg white
Liven up a dull complexion by mixing the juice of a lemon with one beaten egg white. Apply the soft, foamy mixture to your face and leave it on for as long as possible (preferably overnight). If this is not practical, settle down with a good film and let the mixture work its magic. Lemons have anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties that should improve your skin and egg whites are thought to tone your complexion.
Avocado face mask
If you’re fed up with your wrinkles, crow’s feet and laughter lines whip up this simple anti-ageing mixture and revitalise your skin. Avocados are full of antioxidants that are believed to repair damaged skin and make a great natural face mask. Simply mash up two avocados until they have a smooth creamy complexion and apply them all over your face. Leave the mixture on for around half an hour before washing off with warm water. If your skin is in need of some extra TLC a course of microdermabrasion can unblock pores and will reveal your natural luminosity.
