3 Face Masks from Your Kitchen and Wednesdays Adorned From Above Blog Hop 6



Happy 4th of July Everyone

I'm sorry that the Blog Hop had not been open before.  I made a mistake on the time for it to start.  It is open now.  Thanks everyone for your patience. 

Welcome to my Wednesday Adorned from Above Blog Hop 6. This blog hop will run for 2 weeks.  I will be in Mexico, and the internet is spotty and I am afraid that I will not be able to blog for the next two week.  I hope that all of you have fun, and I can't wait to see all that you have done over the last 2 weeks.  I was really organized though, and did get my posts done ahead of time, so check back everyday to see my new recipes and other fun things.

This week I am featuring the three top blog that had the most visits. Make sure that you click on the like button for the blogs that you like the most for next weeks featured links.
 
I am thrilled to feature the following posts this week.  So without further ado, I would like to present these beautiful and informative bloggers.  To those of you that I featured I would love for you to feature this link to the blog showing that you are featured blogger at the Wednesday Adorned from Above Blog Hop.

Today I decided to talk about easy facial ideas that you can do at home.  You do not have to go out and buy anything special, you probably have most of this stuff right in your kitchen.  I have found that there is so much you can do at home with food from your refrigerator and pantry.  I no longer go out and buy expensive products, because I access to things that are great for my skin, and better for me also.  By better, I mean chemical free.  So take a look below and see what you think.  I think that you are going to find these really easy, and will make you feel really pampered.

Before doing any of these masks you should put hot tap water in a pan or a sink and put your face over it with a towel over your head for approximately 5 minutes.  This will open your pours to get the most out of the masks.


Baking Soda -  Baking Soda is a huge multi-tasker.  There are several things that you can do with it as a facial.
  • The first is to use it as a face scrub.  It is a gentle exfoliant, and works great at getting the dead skin off of your face.  Use about 1 tablespoon mixes with about 2 tablespoons of water, and gently massage on your face for about 1 minute, then rinse, and are good to go.  
  • The second is that baking soda makes a great face mask.  It helps to unclog your pores and also shrinks their appearance, which is a good thing.  To do this, mix 1/2 cup baking soda with 2 to 3 tablespoons of water.  You want the mixture wet enough to put on your face, but not too runny.  Use your fingers to spread on your face and neck, keeping away from eye area.  Let dry on your face, about 20 minutes.  Then rinse your face, it's that simple.
Homemade Crock Pot Greek Yogurt
Yogurt - It's next on the list of great food for your face, especially unsweetened greek yogurt.
  • The lactic acid in yogurt are great for your face.  It soothes irritation, cleans pores and softens skins. Finally, greek yogurt has probiotics (live, active cultures), which are helpful in treating  acne and eczema.
  •  To use, wash face, and then use fingers to put a thin layer over skin.  Leave on for 20 minutes, use a wet washcloth to wipe yogurt off of your face, and then rinse face.
Honey - Makes a great mask, and does several things to help your skin.
  • It is a natural humectant, so it moisturizes your skin.  It also has antibacterial properties, which will help can help with acne
  • Honey also has anti oxidant properties, so it also helps protects your skin from sun damage.
  • To use, wash face and then spread a layer of honey over your skin and lie down with a towel under your head.  Leave on for 15 to 20 minutes,  use a wet washcloth to wipe honey off of your face, and then rinse face well.
After all of these masks apply your regular moisturizer as usual.

Next week I will post more face masks that come from your kitchen.

Tell me about your favorite at homemade masks.  I would love to hear what your favorite ingredients are.

Enjoy!!!

    1. Hi Rose,
      Right now, my internet connection is not great that is why I haven't linked to your party this week. I can link within the article if you want. I am happy to do that, rather then down below. Thank you for hosting the party.
