Home anti-aging mask can be a decent alternative to expensive cosmetic creams. We use only natural and fresh foodstuffs for homemade masks. We never use additives for long-term storage or for pleasant aroma of the masks in our recipes. This way care gives good results for our skin.
This homemade anti-aging facial mask will help you to maintain a perfect oval face shape. There are two types of anti-aging facial masks: nutritional and lifting. First group of homemade anti-aging masks moisturize and nourishes the skin.
They have necessary vitamins which are preventing the appearance of small premature wrinkles (for example, Anti-Aging Face Mask with cucumber). Lifting masks tones the skin and impede its stretching.
The skin condition depends on
- age, sex, skin type,
- lifestyle (nutrition), the impact of external factors, skin care.
The first group of factors is beyond of our control, but we can change second group circumstances. We have to take care of the timely moisture and nutrition of the skin to make it looks good regardless of age.
Anti-Aging Mask with Cottage Cheese, Cucumber & Olive Oil
Homemade masks help us to achieve results. I really like the recipe of hydrating mask for aging skin with cottage cheese, cucumber and olive oil.
All these products are toning and moisturizing aging skin, give it freshness and elasticity.
- 2 Tbsp of cottage cheese
- 1-2 Tbsp of milk
- 1 small cucumber
- 1 Tbsp of olive oil
Mash the cottage cheese with the milk with a fork until the mixture is homogeneous.
Peel the cucumber and rub it on the small grater. Add olive oil.
Mix all together. You can put all products in a blender and mix them until a uniform puree.
Use low-fat cottage cheese and a bit less oil for oily skin.
Apply a thick layer of the mask on your face and relax for 20 minutes.
Wash your face with warm water. You see that 10 years have washed away?
Anti-Aging Mask with Kaolin, Egg Yolk & Jojoba
Good source for lifting mask at home is the cosmetic clay, which you can buy in many stores. Since ancient times, the clay used for cosmetic is white, grey, yellow, black, pink, blue and green. Cosmetic clay perfectly cleanses and tightens the skin, eliminates peeling and irritation. Clay is an antiseptic also.
We need powder of plain white clay (kaolin) for this anti-aging mask.
- 1 Tbsp of kaolin powder
- 1 egg yolk
- 3-4 drops of jojoba oil
Jojoba oil contains amino acids, fatty acids, collagen and vitamin E. This oil is ideal for aging skin care.
Pour white clay powder into a bowl add some room temperature water and mix thoroughly. The mixture should be the consistency like yogurt.
Take only the egg yolk and combine it with clay. (If you already have white egg from previous mask stayed in the fridge, you can whip them with sugar and bake wonderful meringue).
Drip jojoba oil into the mask.
Spread the mixture onto lower face, cheekbones and chin.
Roll up cheesecloth or wide bandage in several layers like simple headscarf, dump it in water then squeeze.
Apply it on the mask part of the face and tie head scarf from behind.
Keep the mask for 20-30 minutes. It is better to lie during the procedure. You can put cucumber slices on your eyes and relax for dreaming.
Rinse off anti-aging mask after half an hour. Wipe the face with lotion and apply lifting cream. Make the mask 10 consecutive days if you want to get a noticeable effect.
Repeat course in six months, and the shape of your face will be flawless.
