Since many of us started to work from home, why not take the time to adopt some small self-care habits? To help you with this, we share easy recipes for homemade facial masks, made with simple ingredients.
For a fresh and hydrated skin, the simplest recipe of all! You will not use anything more than a peeled cucumber. Just grind it well, until it forms a homogeneous paste. If necessary, for better handling, add a few drops of cold water. Apply to the face in a circular motion, letting it act for a few minutes, then remove with cold water.
To calm and nourish
You will need half a banana and half an avocado, both mashed, a teaspoon of honey, two tablespoons of Greek yogurt and a tablespoon of olive oil. Mix all the ingredients and apply the paste to the skin. Let stand for 15 minutes and then remove with warm water.
For clean, detoxified skin without major deeds, you'll need a tablespoon of papaya and a few drops of lemon. Mix the ingredients and apply to the face, allowing to act for 10 minutes. Then rinse well with warm water. Remembering that some skins are less intolerant than others, so if you start to feel any discomfort, take it out ahead of time.
Who doesn't love the smoothness of the skin after exfoliation? For this mask, the ingredients are simple, but effective. You will only need a spoon of honey and a spoon of coffee powder. After mixing the two ingredients and turning them into a paste, apply to the face, massaging gently in circular motions and then let it rest for 3 minutes. Remove with ice water to seal the pores. But, attention! If your skin is dry, massage with even more care.
To soften small expression marks, avocado is a great choice.
Knead half avocado by mixing with saline. Apply and let it act for 20 minutes. Then just remove with warm water. You will notice lighter skin.
