3 DIY ALL NATURAL FACIAL MASKS

I absolutely love using natural products on my face, especially when I break out badly. The best way to get rid of acne/acne scars or any discoloration is by using all natural products. Here are some of my favorite recipes of facial masks that I use:

  1. OLIVE OIL

thumbnail_FullSizeRender-1Olive oil can be used for numerous things. What I love about it most is that 

  •  It’s has antioxidant protection, meaning that it contains vitamin E. Vitamin E protects the skin from pre-maturing and helps the skin re-store the damage that has happened to it. 
  • Doesn’t clog pores which is a big plus. Olive oil penetrates deeply into the skin, which cleanses it.
  • It Enhances exfoliation meaning that, it can also remove dead skin sells and give your skin an all natural glow. 

INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil 
  • 1 egg yolk 
  • 2 teaspoons of honey 

  
Mix all the ingredients together and you should get something like this! Apply it on your face and leave it on for about 5-10 minutes. Rinse it off with cold water because, it helps close pores. 

     2. BROWN SUGAR

 Brown sugar is the absolute best natural use as an exfoliate.

  • It maintains your skin clear and away from breakouts.
  • It can help pores unclogged and clean from anymore bacteria occurring. 
  • It also helps removal of acne scars. 

INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 tablespoons of brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons of honey

  
Mix both ingredients together and your facial scrub should look like this. It’s not the most appealing facial but it does the job! Leave it on for 10-20 minutes then, rinse it off with lukewarm water. 

3. COCONUT OIL

  Coconut oil is my essential for any type of purpose. It smoothens and softens the surface of your skin (especially if you have dry skin) and refreshens your skin as good as new. 

  • Coconut oil can heal, hydrate, and break down dead skin cells.
  • Coconut oil penetrates skin pores to soften rough skin from within. 

INGREDIENTS: 

  • 2 tablespoons of coconut oil 
  • 1 tablespoon of honey 

  
Mix ingredients together and apply on your skin. Leave the mask on for 15 minutes and then rinse it off with warm water.

I use all of these facials whenever I feel like I need an extra boost for my skin to get better nourished.

10 NATURAL BEAUTIFYING INGREDIENTS YOU CAN FIND IN YOUR KITCHEN

I love trying out different beauty regimens that are not only benefiting my skin more but, completely natural makes it even better. I decided to look around my kitchen, find some natural ingredients that can improve my skin and I also did some research on these ingredients. These ingredients are great for your body inside and out.

1.SALT

Salt is perfect to use as an exfoliator. All you need is a small amount, rub it around onto the skin and it removes the dirt thats been carried inside the pores all day and it also leaves the skin soft & smooth. Not only is salt beneficial for the skin but it also is strengthens nails & softens the cuticles. All you have to do is apply salt to warm water and dip your feet/nails in it for about 5-10 minutes. It will improve the overall strength of your nails and skin.

2.ICE

If you wake up in the morning with your under eye circles puffed up a bit, ice helps to reduce it. Or even if you have redness around the area of your face just apply a couple of ice cubes for 30 seconds to 1 minute and you will notice how it diminishes puffiness/ redness.

3.BAKING SODA

I absolutely love using baking soda when I ever decide to make facials. Not only is baking soda great for the skin it also is a perfect substitute for dry shampoo. Just apply a small amount on the oily roots of your hair and you will be good to go. Baking soda also helps whiten teeth by mixing a small amount with water and brushing it onto your teeth after you brush your teeth with toothpaste.

3. CUCUMBERS

Similar to using ice, cucumbers are also great to reduce swelling, puffiness, dark circles and brightens the skin by just applying a slice of cucumbers on each eyelid. Plus, if you ever get a really bad sunburn, cucumbers reduces redness, itchiness and adds a cooling sensation to help the pain.

4.LEMONS

Lemons are another one of my favorite natural ingredients to use on my skin. Lemons contain vitamin C and has fruit acids that helps to brighten the skin and evens the tone of your skin. If you have really bad acne scars or just un-even discoloration on the skin by using lemon juice with a bit of water improves your skin. Lemon can also be applied to the hair and scalp for dandruff relief.

5. COCONUT OIL

8. EGGS

Eggs are perfect to use as an all natural beauty remedy. By applying egg whites on your eyelashes they make them fuller and longer. By applying egg yolks onto your nails it strengthens them and prevents them from splitting/cracking. Also using the shell of an egg is great for the skin. If you crash them into a sandy texture, and then exfoliate your body from head to toe.

9. SUGAR

Heap Of Sugar

Sugar is also a great use to help exfoliate the skin. It’s a great lip scrub to exfoliate and heal chapped lips. If you have really embarrassing tan lines that you want to get rid of simply scrub your body with sugar to remove the excess of the tan lines and leaving you with healthy glowing skin.

10. ALMOND OIL

Another natural oil that is great for your skin is almond oil. Almond oil contains vitamin E that helps fight fine lines and wrinkles on your skin that helps to rebuild the collagen in your skin. After applying the almond oil on your skin, it will begin to look brighter and more youthful.

SKIN CARE ROUTINE

So lately I have been in a bit of a skin care craze and I still do love my makeup dearly but the key to having a flawless makeup look is by having flawless skin.

I prefer to do my skin care routine during the night because your skin absorbs the nutrients that it is given to and there is no makeup put into it right after like a morning skin routine.

I like to use two face washes because I feel like one isn’t enough so I wash my face twice which is 4 a day ( 2 in the a.m. and 2 in the p.m.)

LEFT-Simple SkinCare Foaming Cleanser, I absolutely love this stuff not only is it lightweight but it is 100% natural. It has no harsh chemicals, nothing artificial, and includes multi-vitamins that your skin needs on a daily basis. If you have extremely sensitive skin you can check out there entire skin care line it is dedicated for sensitive skin.

RIGHT-Shea Moisture African Black Soap Facial Wash, this product is more of a deep cleaning it is natural as well and has tea tree oil and tamarind extract which helps prevent unwanted blemishes and this product is for blemished and oily skin. Its basically a detox for the face which I love and the best thing of this product having a combination of three important amenities which is african black soap (to prevent blemishes), tamarind extract ( helps exfoliate and brighten skin) and tea tree oil ( helps reduce appearance of breakouts.)

After I finish washing the dirt and oil from my face I like to have a little extra deep cleaning because there is always residue left over no matter what so I like to use Sea Breeze and what this product is basically like witch hazel just with a different label to it. It deep cleans the trapped oil and makeup that the face wash couldn’t reach.

 

IMG_1974

A daily moisturizer is an essential for ALL skin types! No matter if you have oily to combination skin moisturizing your skin is a must. I always liked using the Aveeno daily moisturizer because it doesn’t irritate my skin and it doesn’t irritate my eyes if i get some on it by accident. It is always better to get a moisturizer without scent because, that means it has chemicals that may harsh your skin depending on how sensitive it is.
