Did you know you can make refreshing homemade facial masks from items found in your pantry and refrigerator? The benefits are threefold: saving money, sparing the environment exposure to more chemical-laden products, and using natural skin care!
Here are recipes for two of my favorite face masks:
Farmer’s Wife Face Mask
2 chilled egg whites
1/8 tsp cornstarch
Whip the egg whites until they form peaks, then slowly add the cornstarch. Apply the mixture immediately to your face, leaving it on for 20 minutes. Rinse your face with cool water.
Glorious Green Facial Mask
1 mashed avocado
1/3 cup honey
1/2 cup oatmeal
In a bowl, mix the mashed avocado with the honey, then add oatmeal. When all ingredients are mixed well, apply to your face and relax for 15 to 20 minutes. Wash the mask off with cool water.
