Cosmetic Kitchen: Homemade Face Masks

August 5th, 2011 / Posted by natasha

Some great music, sliced cucumbers and a couple of ingredients from your kitchen and you’re set for a great spa night with your friends. Here are three of our favourite masks to make from our Cosmetic Kitchen. Something for everyone!


Excellent for dry or combination skin.


½ avocado, mashed
½ ripe banana, mashed
1 tsp olive oil

step one: mix together till smooth and creamy
step two: slather onto a freshly cleansed face
step three: leave on for 15 minutes
step four: rinse with warm water


Perfect for oily skin. And, because it’s rich in beta-carotenes and pro-vitamin A, it’s also a great anti-aging mask!


¼ cup grated carrot
1 ½ teaspoons mayonnaise

step one: mix together well
step two: apply to a freshly cleansed face
step three: leave on for 15 minutes
step four: rinse with warm water

 


For all skin types – especially oily, acne-prone skin. It tightens, brightens and shrinks your pores, too!


1 egg white
2 tbsp oatmeal
1 tbsp lemon juice

step one: whisk egg white till frothy
step two: add oatmeal and lemon juice and mix well
step three: apply to a freshly cleansed face
step four: leave on for 15 minutes
step five: rinse well

*Follow all masks with moisturizer
