Homemade cosmetics are becoming increasingly popular. They are completely natural and can be made from products found in the kitchen. Here are the best recipes!
More and more women decide to make their own cosmetics. And rightly so. Such products are completely natural, we are sure of their composition, and in addition we can exchange various ingredients, matching them to our needs. Besides, as it turns out, making them is very beneficial financially. Also, do not forget about the great satisfaction of making them yourself. So, we check what cosmetics we can make from what each of us (or almost everyone) has at home.
Yeast mask for acne-prone skin
Do you have oily skin and struggle with acne? A yeast mask can help. To prepare it we need:
- about 1/4 cube of fresh yeast;
- 1.5 tablespoons of lukewarm milk;
Crumble the yeast into a bowl and add milk. Stir to form a homogeneous, fairly thick slurry. Apply a thick layer on the face and leave for 15-20 minutes. Then thoroughly wash with lukewarm water. Yeast is perfect for skin with excess sebum, contaminated and irritated skin. When used regularly it also reduces the visibility of acne scars. It is worth making such a mask 2 times a week.
Moisturizing honey mask
If your skin needs nourishing and moisturizing, honey mask will be the best choice. To make it you will need:
- 3 tablespoons of honey;
- 3 tablespoons of milk;
Honey should be liquid, so you can heat it slightly. Mix with milk until the ingredients combine. Apply the mixture on your face (it is best to lie down because the mask may flow down). After 25-30 minutes rinse the face with lukewarm water. Honey moisturizes, disinfects and soothes irritations
A mask for dry skin made of flour and olive oil
Dry, flaky skin? It is a common problem, especially in summer when hot weather additionally dries out your skin. Then it is worth making a highly moisturizing mask. All you need to prepare it is:
- 2-3 teaspoons of wheat flour;
- 1/4 teaspoon of salt;
- 2 teaspoons of olive or sweet almond oil
Mix everything thoroughly until you get a smooth paste. Then apply the paste on dry skin and leave for 10-15 minutes. Finally, wash thoroughly with lukewarm water
Natural tea and lemon tonic
While almost all of us drink tea every day, not many people know what excellent properties it has for our beauty. Green tea is even salutary for acne-prone skin. It is enough to brew it, cool down and squeeze half of a medium-sized lemon. Use this tonic to wash your face in the morning and in the evening. It can stay in the fridge for up to 3 days
Egg hair mask for brittle hair
Egg has an excellent effect on our hair. It moisturizes hair strands, restores their shine, nourishes them and makes them thicker. In addition, it accelerates hair growth and removes dandruff. In case of brittle hair the best solution is egg and honey mask. For its preparation we need:
- 2 egg yolks;
- 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar;
- one tablespoon of liquid honey;
- 2,5 tablespoons of olive oil;
Mix all the ingredients thoroughly and apply to the hair all over its length. Leave for about half an hour and rinse. Then wash the hair with shampoo and apply conditioner
Coffee and milk peeling is a real hit. Especially since the scent alone has a stimulating effect. Just mix brewed coffee grounds with 1-2 tablespoons of milk (preferably full fat). Wash the body thoroughly with the slurry. This treatment is also a great massage and improves blood circulation and above all – exfoliates dead skin. It is also worth knowing that coffee and milk peeling has anti-wrinkle properties, moisturizing, protects against skin aging and accelerates its regeneration. So it is worth making such a scrub at least 2 times a week.
