Homemade Natural Masks for Firmer, Tighter Skin

Is your face looking a little less youthful than you’d like these days? Whether you’re seeing fine lines, age spots, or sagging, there’s no need to rush out and spend a fortune on chemical-filled anti-aging products. To restore some youth and life to your skin, you don’t need to look any further than the contents of your own kitchen.

1. Egg White Mask with Lemon & Raw Honey

Egg White Mask with Lemon & Raw Honey

How to make it:

Separate two egg whites then discard the yolks (or save them for another project). Whisk the whites together with the juice of half a lemon and 3-4 teaspoons of raw honey. Apply it to your face using clean fingers and allow the mask to dry until it is tacky. To remove, gently buff your face clean with warm water using your fingers or a soft face cloth.

How it works:

The eggs whites will tighten your skin and shrink pores, restoring and maintaining elasticity. The lemon in the mask reduces hyperpigmentation from scars and age spots, removes blackheads, and reduces oiliness, leaving your natural face masks looking younger and brighter. And the raw honey is antibacterial, which will help to heal any damaged skin or scars while providing tons of natural moisture.

2. Turmeric & Olive Oil Mask

Turmeric & Olive Oil Mask

How to make it:

Combine 3 teaspoons of olive oil with turmeric until you have a thick paste. Gently spread the paste over your skin until it creates a mask, focusing on areas with dull, dry, or sagging skin. If the paste is a little difficult to spread, you can soften it by wetting your fingers.

Once the mask has dried, allow it to sit for 10-15 minutes, then splash your natural face masks with warm water to remove it. If you have a light complexion, the turmeric may cause your skin to look a little yellow right after it is removed, so it’s best to use this mask right before bed.

How it works:

Turmeric is full of antioxidants, which fight off free radicals and heal the damage they can cause to your skin. It also helps tighten sagging skin by improving collagen production and elasticity. The olive oil naturally moisturizes your skin and helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, especially around your mouth and eyes.

3. Yogurt Mask with Oatmeal & Strawberries

Yogurt Mask with Oatmeal & Strawberries

How to make it:

Crush? a cup of dry oatmeal until it resembles a chunky powder (gluten-free oats are best in case you have a sensitivity). Mix the oats with ¼ cup of plain yogurt and 3-4 mashed strawberries. If the mask is a little too dry, add more yogurt until it is easy to spread onto your natural face masks. Allow the mask to sit for 5-10 minutes before rinsing off.

How it works:

The yogurt in the mask is naturally antibacterial and moisturizing. It improves blood circulation, which will help lift sagging skin and reduce puffiness around your eyes. The strawberries work as a toner to brighten dull skin, making your face look younger and healthier, while the oatmeal exfoliates, removing dead skin and reducing age spots.
