Soft, smooth, with no blemishes… that’s our description for baby skin! It is for us, a goal to achieve as sometimes our real skin is full of blemishes, oily, reddish or even dry like a desert!
We used sometimes to do facial treatments that cost us millions and we forgot about miracles found in Mother Nature. Because with Mother Nature anything is possible even having baby skin is possible.
Here are two facial masks that can help us to have the baby skin we always wanted and dreamed about!
- Coffee Scrub
Before using any facial mask, we should scrub our skin and massage it very well to eliminate all the oils, makeup residues and dead cells on it.
This step is very important as it cleans our skin deeply, refreshes it and make it look smoother and softer.
To prepare this natural scrub, all you need is:
- 5 table spoons of coffee
- 1 table spoon of olive oil
- 2 table spoons of brown sugar
- 1 tea spoon of lemon juice
Mix all the ingredients together until you obtain a texture similar to paste.
Wash your face very well using your favorite facial wash that suits your skin type than apply the scrub on your face in circular motions.
Massage the scrub in circular motions for about 2-3 minutes on each part of your face than wash it off.
2.Parsley and Cornstarch mask
If you are suffering from skin blemishes like acne for example, this mask can help you.
This mask is composed of two initial ingredients: parsley and cornstarch
Parsley contains Vitamin C, it produces collagen which helps the skin look younger and reduces wrinkles and fine lines. It helps clean your acne as it is an antioxidant that detoxifies the skin.
Cornstarch can helps in whitening your skin and lifting it. It dries also your skin and eliminate oils from it.
To prepare this natural mask, all you need is:
- 10 parsley leaves
- 1 table spoon of cornstarch
- 1 tea spoon of rose water
- 1 tea spoon of coconut oil
First, boil the parsley leaves until the water turns green.
Grind the leaves with the boiled water using a mixer.
Filter the mixture then add the water to the cornstarch and mix very well until the texture becomes creamy.
Add the rose water and coconut oil to the mixture.
Apply the mask to your face after the scrub and leave it for 15 minutes then wash it off.
After washing it off, you will notice it that your skin blemishes started to disappear, you skin is not red anymore, your face is lifted and whiter.
3.Final steps to do
Finally, wash your face again using your favorite facial wash, apply your toner, apply a Vitamin C serum, then your face moisturizer.
Don’t forget to apply sunscreen even of you are staying at home.
Drink enough water during the day and change your cushion sheets day by day!
4.More about the masks
Both masks suits all skin types but I advise you to do a patch test on your hand for 5 minutes before applying them on your face.
If you notice any burn signs or redness just don’t apply them as they can cause you allergy and harm your skin.
All the ingredients used in the masks are natural, paraben free and cruelty free.
If you apply the scrub and the second mask once a week you will notice a big change in your skin texture.
The scrub should be applied once a week but regarding the parsley and cornstarch mask, you can apply it twice a week especially if your skin is very oily.
