Saffron and milk face mask is one of the most interesting and effective homemade rejuvenating masks. Not every woman has saffron at home. But not every woman who has this spice at home knows that it can be used as one of ingredients of the mask.
Famous cosmetic brands use it for expensive creams and lotions for aging skin because this plant has unique properties.
Cosmetics with saffron are too expensive. So, you can replace them with mask from saffron and milk.
Benefits of saffron with milk for skin
- Saffron has the ability to smooth wrinkles and skin structure.
- The active components of saffron can penetrate deep enough into the skin and moisturize it well.
- Powerful antiseptic properties of saffron used for masks which help to get rid of acne.
- Another merit of saffron is the ability to improve the complexion and discolor skin pigmentation.
Here’s my favorite recipe of saffron mask. It’s very simple and surprisingly effective.
- 1-2 tsp of milk
- 1 tsp of saffron powder
- 2-3 drops of geranium oil
Aromatic geranium oil has anti-aging properties, and you can add it to any homemade anti-aging mask or you can add nothing at all. That’s up to you.
Mix the milk with saffron adding milk gradually to make the homogeneous mixture. Let it brew for 20-30 minutes.
Add geranium oil and apply mixture onto the face and neck. Avoid the eye area. Do it with a brush otherwise you’ll stain your hands.
Keep the mask for 20 minutes. Mask dries. Be careful and relax facial muscles during this time. Don’t make any facial movements. Choose the lying position for that procedure.
Wet your face after to make it easier to wash off the mask.
Don’t try to scrub a light yellow color from the face. It will pass away itself in 1-2 hours. Make a scrub from yogurt and oatmeal if you don’t like to wait. It will help to whiten the skin faster.
