Beautiful skin starts from HOME

We are always looking for easy, effective and affordable beauty tips. 
So what is it?
Yes,
DIY Masks
To make your own simple, hydrating masks and scrubs? Why pay so much just for a piece of face mask when you yourself can use basic ingredients which can be found in your own house?

Just want to share with you some useful information. Masks that you can make yourself with food from your kitchen, for example: banana, honey, lemon juice, olive oil, buttermilk, oatmeal, avocado, apple, sour cream and potato. 

The steps are easy:
1.         Prepare the ingredients such as banana, honey, lemon juice, olive oil, buttermilk, oatmeal, avocado, apple, sour cream or potato
2.        Well mix up with those ingredients
3.        Remove all makeup and then wash your face, neck and ears with a good facial cleanser
4.       Apply it to your cleaned skin and leave it around 20 to 25 minutes
5.        Wash your face with lukewarm water and apply nourishing cream

Well,  different problems can be solved by different solutions…
Wrinkles
1 egg yolk, 1 teaspoon honey, few drops of olive oil
Sensitive & Cracked
Equal parts of honey, egg yolks and sour cream
or
100g mashed apricots and 100g honey (special for hot summer day)
or
1 cup natural yogurt (just-out-of-the-fridge cold), ½ cup oatmeal (any type of basic oatmeal works here)
Don't have yogurt in the house? You can substitute Pepto-Bismol. (No, I am not kidding! The agents that soothe your stomach also soothe your face)
Blackheads
100g of forest honey and 200g of wheat bran
Oily
1 tablespoon of honey, 1 ripe of banana and
few drops of orange/lemon juice
Dry
½ avocado and ¼ cup of honey
(Mash the avocado in a bowl, then only stir in the honey)
or
1 teaspoon of powdered milk, 1 tablespoon of almonds, pulverized, 1 tablespoon of runny honey, 1 teaspoon of Aloe Vera gel, and 2 drops essential oil
Aging Skin
3 tablespoon of sugar and 4 tablespoon of warm water
(Sugar is a natural exfoliant and help soften the lines your skin creates as it ages)
