8 “home-made” masks for perfect skin

your grandmother’s recipes, made without chemicals. Mature, dry or combination, each skin type will find the care that suits it with these 8 homemade face masks.

Being beautiful doesn’t cost much
The cucumber decongests, the mint purifies and the lemon lightens. Have fun drawing from your shopping list and discover that your kitchen is full of ingredients that are real beauty nuggets. Stop compulsive, bulky and not at all ecological purchases!

Long live fruits and vegetables
Less expensive and effective, set up a natural beauty routine. Open your fridge and visit the local herbalist. You will see that the big brands invent nothing and owe a lot to Mother Nature for the development of their hydrating, nourishing or even purifying masks.

How to apply your mask?
First of all, carefully remove your skin to get rid of its impurities. Apply the mask to the neck and face, avoiding the eye area, then rinse with lukewarm water. To remove make-up, use a vegetable oil like coconut oil, or jojoba oil which you can easily find on Amazon. They are more natural and less aggressive than a classic makeup remover, and they gently release your skin from impurities and makeup.

To make it easier, use an applicator brush or a plastic spatula. If you want to play it like in an institute, let yourself be tempted by the complete kit of mask utensils in which you will find a bowl, a stick for mask, a brush for mask and finally a measuring spoon. With this, you will be ready for a real wellness session.

Attention, as these masks are 100% natural – therefore without preservative – you must use them quickly.
