3 Face Masks from Your Kitchen - Part 2

I first need to remind all of you that last weeks blog hop is a 10 day blog hop.  It will not end until midnight on July 15th, so you can still link up.  Just click on this link to get to the blog hop 3 Face Masks From Your Kitchen - Wednesdays Adorned From Above Blog Hop.

Today I am going to finish with the last 3 face masks, that you can make with food from your kitchen.

Always wash your face before you put these masks on your face.  I also suggest steaming to open your pores first, to get the most out of these masks.

Cream and Almond Meal Mask  -   This is a great mask and really easy.
  • Cream has lactic acid which will brighten skin, exfoliate, and hydrate skin.  It is alpha hydroxy acid, in its base form
  • Almond meal will also hydrate skin, plus you can use it as a natural exfoliant.
2 TB cream
1/4 cup almond meal

Mix the cream and almond meal together and spread on face.  Gently rub to exfoliate and then leave on skin for 20 minutes.  You can wipe it off with a wet wash cloth and then rinse well with warm water.

Coffee, Honey,  and Jojoba Mask
  • Coffee has caffeine in it and it will reduce the puffiness around your eyes and in your face.  It will also brighten complexion and it can reduce the appearance of fine lines.
  • Honey is a natural humectant, which means it will draw moisture into your skin
  • Jojoba oil is great for its penetrating properties.  It is an oil that is closest to the oil that our skin produces.
1/4 cup coffee grounds
1 TB honey
2 TB jojoba oil
Mix these ingredients together, and put a thin layer on your face.  After 20 minutes gently rub your face to exfoliate, and then rinse with warm water.

The last is Pumpkin, Egg, and Honey Mask
  • Pumpkin has natural Alpha Hydroxy Acids which will help with cell turnover which is great for skin rejuvenation.  It is great for acne prone and aging skin.
  • Egg whites firms skin, reduces redness and inflamation
  • Honey is our go to ingredient because it will draw moisture into your skin.
1/4 cup pumpkin
1 egg white
2 TB honey

Mix ingredients and spread a thin layer on your face and neck.  Leave on for 20 minutes and then rinse off with warm water.

After all of these masks you can use a toner and moisturize as you normally would.

Let me know what your favorite masks are.   I would love to hear what you use from your kitchen.

Enjoy!!!
