I remember my mother saying that “Sunday is a treat for woman’s beauty”. I remember that I used to love to see what my mother is doing for the whole day on Sunday. I would observe every single beauty ritual she would be doing, such as scrubbing her body, preparing home-made facial masks, moisturizing her face with various facial creams and doing pedicure as well as manicure. For a child like me, back then it seemed something what I couldn’t really understand and follow, yet nowadays I started treating my Sundays as a day for take of myself: and my Sunday skincare routine always includes preparing a fresh, home-made facial mask. Therefore I decided to share some yummy (yes, indeed, delicious!) masks with you that you might put on your face with pleasure.
For the first time in my life I have tried a fresh chocolate mask, I saw an immediate result: my skin became soft and tender instantly. I would highly recommend such mask if you are suffering from a “tired”, sensitive skin.
For such mask, you will need:
- 50gr of dark chocolate (without nuts, raisins or any kind of filling),
- 2-3 fresh strawberries,
- tiny bit of milk or creme fraiche.
Melt the chocolate, mash strawberries and mix it with a bit of milk or a small spoon of creme fraiche. Put it on a slightly wet, washed face for about 20 minutes. Wash carefully and apply a daily usage moisturizer afterwards.
Avocado has probably been the only fruit, which has been used for used a long time in various beauty companies to prepare a number of moisturizing products. Avocado facial mask will not only make your face feel fresh, but will moist it a lot.
You will need:
- 1/2 fresh, soft avocado,
- 2 small spoons of natural honey.
Mash avocado and mix it with honey. Apply on a washed face and leave it for about 10 minutes. Wash off with a relatively cold water. You will not even need the cream afterwards since avocado facial mask will revitalize and hydrate the skin.
Guatemalan banana mask
If you have an oily skin type and constantly suffer from extensive oils, it could be a good idea to spoil your skin with a very easy, yet also very effective Guatemalan banana facial mask. For such mask you will need:
- 1/2 of the fresh, ripe banana
- Lemon juice
Mash the banana and add lemon juice. Apply on face and keep for 10-20 minutes. This facial mask refreshes and smoothes the skin, stabilizes the protective fat coating.
Even though the weather outside does not remind of the spring at all, make sure you spoil your skin a little so that it looks fresh regardless of a bad weather!
Enjoy your Sunday, ladies!
