3 Natural Face Mask Recipes

There are so many beauty products on the market. You can go to the store and look for a product, read labels, and spend so much time deciding which one is the right one for you. This article is for those of you that want to try to do something at home. It's easy and you don't need a lot.

1. Make your own rose-water toner.
I'm from Bulgaria and Bulgaria it's known for it's rose products, including perfumes, toners, creams, etc. Roses are anti-inflammatory, soothing irritated skin and rich source of antioxidants. You can use rose water as a natural toner and it's so easy to make.
Get a half a cup of rose petals, pour 1 cup of boiling water on top. Cover and wait until it's cool. Take out all the rose petals and pour the rose water in your favorite bottle.

2. Lemon Sugar Scrub
I found this great recipe on I Heart Nap Time (link) and it's a great DIY Sugar Scrub. Here is what you need:
  •  2 1/2 cups granulated sugar; divided
  •  1/4 cup coconut oil (almond oil will also work)
  •  1 lemon or lemon natural oils
Place the coconut oil in a microwave safe bowl. Heat it for about 30 seconds, or until the oil is melted. Pour oil over sugar and mix to combine. Zest the rind of 1 lemon. Then, cut zested lemon in half and, using a juicer, juice the lemon. Remove any seeds from lemon juice. Add lemon juice and zest to the sugar mixture and stir to combine.
If sugar scrub is still too “wet”, add up to 1/2 cup more sugar until desired consistency is reached.
3.   Red Wine Face Mask
Yes, you read it right.  We all know the benefits of red wine, we also know that red wine is full of antioxidants and that our skin needs antioxidants to stay young and beautiful. Wine in combination with honey and yogurt can tighten your pores and moisturize your skin.
Mix 1 tablespoon of red wine, 1 tablespoon of greek yogurt and 1 tablespoon of honey in a bowl.Apply on clean face and keep it there for 10 minutes. Wash it out with cool water.

Which one do you want to try? Hope you enjoyed this article.
