Today I will present some recipes of my favorite homemade masks.I like to make my masks myself because it allows me to adapt to the needs of my skin while being economical and ecological.I have skin mixed to oily so I do not think that this recipe is suitable for dry skin but I will try to include some alternatives to some ingredient to adapt these masks to your skin type.
even sensitive and it is really a feast for the skin:
You will need:
Pour the rice flour into a bowl and add the rose water.Mix then add the coconut milk and mix. The paste should be thick enough to hold on the face but not too much, it must have the consistency of a cake dough. Apply on the face and leave for 20 minutes.Once the mask is dry it turns into a very gentle scrub for the skin, just moisten the mask and make small circular movement to exfoliate the skin.Once it's done there all that remains is to rinse off the mask and tada a skin as soft as silk, well hydrated and nourished and without dead cells.
Benefits of this mask: The rice flour will gently exfoliate the skin while having softening properties. The rice flour is rich in vitamin B, vitamin E, starch and essential fatty acid, making it an ally of all skin because it is absorbent, smoothing, illuminating and antioxidant. Rose water is a great ally for just about any skin problem.It moisturizes, purifies, tones and soothes without forgetting its anti wrinkle properties. Coconut milk is nourishing and moisturizing, it is good for the suppleness and the elasticity of the skin. It leaves the skin soft and velvety.
You can replace the rose water with another floral water adapted to your needs: Orange blossom water for dry skin, lemon hydrolate for oily skin, tea tree hydrolate for Acne skin ... Coconut milk can be replaced by other vegetable milk or simply cow's milk.
This mask was inspired by the recipe of traditional Asian mask that I found in the book The secret beauty layering of the Japanese Elodie-Joy Jaubert which here is the recipe:
Mix rice flour and milk until smooth. Heat a little bit of sesame oil until it becomes lukewarm. Apply sesame oil on the face with a little touch, then apply over the mask.
This mask I do it from time to time when my skin really needs nutrition but I find it less complete, it is simpler although it is devilishly effective.
The second mask I want to introduce is chocolate-based, and I can tell you that I, who love chocolate, are more than happy every time I cook it even if I have to resist the urge to eat it.
You will need: 2 tablespoons unsweetened chocolate powder Van Houten type 1 tablespoon of carrot juice 1 teaspoon of sunflower oil
mix and apply about 20 minutes. Rinse and admire your skin!
Benefits of this mask: Chocolate is an excellent anti-oxidant perfect to fight wrinkles but not only! It is indeed a good mask against imperfection and irritated skin.It is also nourishing. Carrot juice is a perfect ingredient to brighten the complexion and fight against imperfections, it is indeed rich in vitamin A which is also ideal in the preventive treatment of wrinkles. Sunflower oil is nourishing but non-comedogenic perfect so for combination to oily skin.
or another fruit juice (plum, lemon ...) the important thing is that the juice is pure
without sugar additions or other So the best is to do it yourself using a juice
extractor or a centrifuge. Or so check the labels and buy bio.But you can also
replace the juice by the hydrosol of your choice. Sunflower oil can be replaced by olive oil for an additional antioxidant but you can
replace it with the oil of your choice adapted to your skin type: jojoba for acne skin,
avocado for dry skin, coconut for mature skin.The important thing is that it is an
organic oil, extracted cold and virgin, without any additional additions.
The third mask that I am going to present to you is based on clay and contrary to the idea received the clay is as well adapted to the oily skin as to the dry skin.
You will need:
In the first place to infuse green tea upstream for example in the morning and made cool in the fridge, it will be ready for the evening like that.
In a glass bowl mix using a wooden or plastic spatula, no other material otherwise it deteriorates the properties of the clay.Mix so clay and tea then add the drops of oil Apply on your face and let stand for 10 min, making sure that the clay does not dry to get it wet regularly with a water mist or with floral water.
Benefits of this mask: White clay is one of the softest that exists perfect for all skin types. It is soothing, purifying, healing and soothing. Green tea is an excellent antioxidant but it is also purifying, depolluting and regenerating. The essential oil of lemon is purifying, illuminating and combats the pigmentary tasks that it is due to the age, the pregnancy or the acne.
You can replace white clay with any other clay depending on your skin type, even if it is suitable for all types of skin. Green tea can be substituted for any hydrolate or just water. The essential oil of lemon can be replaced by any essential oil according to your skin type: Lavender for oily skin, Tea Tree for acne skin, Roman chamomile for sensitive skin, Damascus pink for mature skin or Ylang-Ylang for dry skin.
For the penultimate mask that I present to you we will use chickpea flour, which is excellent daily cleanser for the skin and excellent shampoos are by the way.
We will therefore need:
Add the flour, mix and apply for 20 minutes. Moisten the mask and massage to
obtain an exfoliating effect then rinse.
Benefits of the mask: Chickpea flour is a gentle exfoliator for the skin. It is illuminating, adoussicante and antioxidant. Tips: If you do not have any, simply take dry chickpeas and put them in a coffee grinder. Rose water is purifying, invigorating and illuminating. Honey is moisturizing and nourishing, purifying and anti wrinkle.
You can replace honey with aloe vera or agave syrup. Rose water can be replaced by the hydrosol of your choice, brewed tea or even coffee.
Fifth and last mask this one will undoubtedly be the simplest.
You will therefore need to:
Mix the two ingredients together and leave for 20 minutes. You can let it sit for up to 1 hour for those who have time in front of them.
Benefits of the mask: Honey is healing, restorative, nourishing and moisturizing. It also has anti aging and purifying properties. Aloe vera is healing, purifying, anti-aging, moisturizing and soothing.
Honey is replaceable by agave syrup but aloe vera is not so replaceable, there are no other ingredients that provide so many properties.
These masks although effective does not give miraculous results immediately, it must be done in the long term, it must indeed wait a good month, the time that the skin regenerates. Of course do allergy tests on a small porion of skin 48 hours before applying a mask and do not apply food to which you are allergic.Also pay attention with citrus products that have photosensitizers, do not go in the sun with it and always wear sunscreen the next day to avoid any risk.
