DIY FUN: Masks cont’d

Just a couple more masks to try!

Remember …

  • I am NOT a doctor; make sure you test each treatment on a patch of skin first
  • I do not endorse any of the suggested treatments
  • if you choose to try any of these suggested treatments, you do so AT YOUR OWN RISK
  • My Bits and Bleeps will not be held liable for ANY outcome of ANY of the suggested spa treatments … you are invited to do your own research prior to trying any treatment.

Banana and Honey Mask

  • 1/2 banana (mashed) 
  • 1/4 cup oatmeal, cooked with milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tablespoon honey

Mix ingredients together.  Massage onto face in a circular motion, and leave for 15 minutes. Rinse with warm water. This mask is good for both sensitive and dry skin.

Note:  Oatmeal is high in nourishing vitamins and minerals, and gently cleanses and heals skin.  Bananas contain vitamin A.  Eggs contain lecithin, a natural skin emollient.  Honey helps to maintain the skin’s natural acid.

Strawberry and Buttermilk Facial

  • 4 to 6 strawberries (mashed) 
  • 1 tablespoon buttermilk
  • 2 teaspoons rose water
  • 1 tablespoon powdered rose hips

Mix ingredients together.  Apply to face, neck and hands, gently massaging.  Allow to set for 15 to 20 minutes. As the mixture dries, skin will feel a little tight. Rinse, and pat dry.

Note:  Pureed fresh strawberries soften the skin, and cool inflammation.  Rose hips are rich in vitamin C.  Buttermilk contains proteins and vitamins.
