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.

Another 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 at Home: Preparation

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.
