Garlic, Olive oil, & Raw Honey FACE mask!

Well, this is a GREAT face mask that I just tried and made up earlier this week. I have been reading up so much on garlic and all of its health benefits. So this mask contains garlic which is a powerful

Antioxidant that is supposed to help the skin repair acne and acne scars and prevent breakouts. The olive oil is the moisturizer in this mix and do I really need to explain? The fatty acids in here are great not just for your

skin but hair and nails. And honey is a good moisturizer as well but also a nice exfoliate. All of these ingredients are great for calming the skin, making it soft and fighting bacteria. I used minced garlic or you can use regular gloved garlic.

 

NEED:

Garlic cloves or minced garlic

2 table spoons olive oil

1 ½ table spoons raw honey or regular honey

DIRECTIONS:

Take all ingredients and mix them together in a blender or food processor. When all mixed up pour into a small container so that you can put the remaining of the face mask in the fridge for the next day.

Make sure your face is clean and washed, free of makeup! Then go ahead and apply this mixture all over your face in a nice circular motion around the face. Don’t press too hard if you are using raw honey because of the little sand

Like texture will bother your skin. Leave it on for 15-20 minutes, but please friends NO MORE than 25 minutes because garlic is a really strong antioxidant and it can burn the skin. If you start to noticed burning anytime under 25 minutes then

Please don’t use this method and wash it off right away. After you wash it off with warm water, pat dry your face and feel how smooth your face feels. But on your favorite moisturizer or a lil tiny bit of olive oil for extra softness and hydration.

Cucumber relaxing eye and face mask!

Oh the joys of relaxing and unwinding from a hard day at work or school. Don’t you know you deserve to just relax and enjoy yourself and to treat your skin? Here’s a great way to take away some of that stress with a cold cucumber eye and face mask. This leaves the skin refreshed and leaving you relaxed and calm.

What you need:

4 cucumber slices

Plastic Zip lock bag

WHAT TO DO:

Slice thin slices of the cucumber (4) and place them in a zip lock bag and put them in the freezer for around 10 minutes. Then go ahead and clean your face with your morning routine face wash. After the 10 minutes is up take the baggy out of the freezer and take two of the cucumbers and place them on your eyes (eyes closed) for 10 minutes…it’s okay to lift them up every once in awhile in case it’s super cold! Then when they start to thaw out put them right under your eyes and set for 10 minutes. Now take the other two from the baggy and rub them all over your face for 3-4 minutes….really massaging it into the skin – throw away the cucumbers and leave the cucumber juice on your face for at least 30 minutes. Your face will start to tighten up and just feel amazing and refreshed. Then gently wash it off and apply your favorite moisturizer.

Do this at least 2x a week.

Cucumber is so good for your body when you consume it and when you put it on your face. Cucumber is known to really whiten your face (which can help with redness/acne scaring) and softening the skin. Cucumbers are like 96% water so it is really hydrating for your face and eyes. It also contains vitamins A, B & C! These vitamins really help the skin to reduce redness and puffy ness under the eyes.

WHAT YOU NEED

  • 3 tablespoons of used finely ground coffee
  • A small glass of milk

WHAT TO DO

  1. Add the used finely ground coffee into a bowl.
  2. Stir in the milk until well blended and it will be a thick texture.
  3. Try not to make the paste too diluted or it’ll be runny and it’s gonna be messy.
  4. If the mixture becomes too runny, simply add a little more coffee into it.
  5. Apply the paste onto your face and smooth it out all over your face. Avoid eyes and lips.
  6. Slowly massage the mixture to your skin.
  7. Then relax for 20 minutes.
  8. While washing off the mask, slowly massage the paste to your skin. It acts further as an exfoliator. Don’t massage too hard if you have sensitive skin.
  9. Pat your face dry.
  10. Apply moisturizer while your skin is still damp to seal in the moisture.

(Remember not to scrub your skin too hard with the coffee grounds though.)
