The beauty of food is that good fresh healthy varieties can not only make you healthier on the inside but also make you look healthier on the outside too!
Here are a few of the inexpensive beauty secrets that we have uncovered for keeping your skin, face and eyes looking amazing all day everyday.
The Homemade Facial Mask
Follow these easy steps to open the pores of your skin and cleanse them to attain a refreshed healthy looking skin:
First, thoroughly cleanse your facial skin.
1. Always wash your hands before touching your face, removing your make up and washing your face.
2. Do not use hot water to wash your face. Use warm water to begin with and finish up with a splash of cold water.
3. Preferably, do not use soap on your face.
4. Only use soap on your face if you have an oily complexion. You should then massage some soap in circular motions all over your face. Start with your forehead, your nose and then your cheeks. Rinse your face with cold water and thoroughly wash off the soapy residue.
5. Dry your face with a soft towel. Do not rub your face with the towel but simply tap it gently all over your face.
Now that we have thoroughly cleansed the facial skin we can move onto making the facial masks.
Facial Masks are beneficial for many reasons but the most important, is that it draws out the toxins that are buried deep in the pores of your skin.
Daily cleansing of the your skin will only remove the surface layers of oil and toxins, so using a facial mask after the initial cleansing of your face and before toning, will greatly improve the overall health and vitality of your skin.
When applying any facial masks, be sure to avoid the areas around the eyes and the mouth. Use your fingers to gently spread a thin layer of the mask mixture to the skin, and give it time to do its magic. Once mask has done its magic, remove it with fresh clean water and a soft cloth.

This is the one time it’s good to have egg on your face! The egg white facial mask is the best treatment to give your whole face a lift.
Eggs are very rich in the protein Albumen (egg white) is known to be a natural skin cleanser.
Method: The process is very simple, take an egg, crack it open and extract the egg white and put the egg yolk aside for later. Add a few drops of lemon juice and mix for a few seconds.
Using a cotton ball, spread the mixture all over your face. Be sure to avoid using this mixture too close to the eyes, mouth and neck. Leave the mask on for approximately 20 minutes. This treatment works really well for oily skin.
While you’re waiting for the mask to work it is best to relax yourself by listening to some soothing peaceful music or quietly meditate. It is also a good time to treat your eyes to some kindness. Place cucumber slices on the eyes to protect them and restore their moisture.
If you have dark circles under your eyes you may want to use black tea bags or even green, white, or Chamomile tea bags that have been squeezed to remove the excess water. Just place them over your eyes to remove the puffiness and dark circles. This should be performed twice a week for best results.
Once the 20 minutes has elapsed, wash your face in some fresh cool water and feel how fresh and clean your facial skin feels after this all natural treatment.
To ensure you maintain a beautiful and radiant facial skin, it is recommended that you apply this egg white facial mask one or twice a week, whichever you believe is required by your skin.
