I love Sundays because normally I have a guest post on the blog! Today is no exception! Emily from Erratic Goddess is showing us how to make 3 great face masks!
I don’t think it’s fair to go out everyday using heavy makeup, foundations, eyeliners, shadows, creams and nothing more, our face needs care, a lot of care! That’s why today I’m going to show you 3 effective, homemade masks that are going to help you with your face.
The first one is a mask to remove the blackheads from the nose. In this mask we’re going to use just baking soda and lemon juice. It is important for me to clear one fact here, when we use lemon as an ingredient for anything that is going to be used in our skin (face, arms, hands) it is better if we use it at night, because the sun and the lemon has this weird reaction together and it can make little stains in our skin.
2 tbsp of baking soda
The juice of a Lemon
Mix the baking soda and the lemon until you get a sticky paste, apply it on your face and massage in circles for 1 minute. Leave it for another minute and then remove it with cold water.
The second mask is to eliminate pimples. They are annoying and makeup is not enough to cover them and it makes them worse. Before using this mask on your skin, make sure you’re not allergic to cinnamon. Take a little bit of the mask, put it on your nose or cheeks and leave it for a minute if it doesn’t hurt or causes itching or redness, you’re good to go.
2 tbsp of cinnamon (powder)
2 tbsp of honey
The juice of a lemon
Mix all the ingredients and apply to your face everywhere except in your eyes; let it rest for 4 or 5 minutes and then wash it out with cold water. It’s going to leave your face fresh and soft.
2 tbsp of oats
2 tbsp of brown sugar
1 crushed tablet (aspirin or tylenol)
3 tbsp of honey or chamomile tea
Mix everything until you get a strong paste, apply to your face and let it rest for 5 minutes, remove the excess and with the part that has stuck to your face, massage your forehead, nose, lips and chins for 2 minutes and then remove it with cold water.
These 3 masks, if you do them together the same night are a great combination, but the pimple mask is good just to make it twice a month, the same goes to the blackhead mask. However, the exfoliating mask is perfect for every night or 3 timers per week or as you like.
I hope you enjoy this post and do some of the masks! Make yourself feel like you’re in a spa. It would be fun to have a sleepover party with your best friends and make them all. Take some pictures and share it.
