Today we’re going to present 7 homemade natural face masks that will restore the natural glow of your skin without adverse side-effects.
Lemon, tomato and turmeric
Mix a teaspoon of tomato juice with 3 teaspoons of lemon juice and a pinch of turmeric, then apply the mixture on your face and wash it off with water after an hour. Tomatoes contain antioxidants and lycopene, which, combined with turmeric’s anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties and the amazing effects of lemon on your skin will significantly improve your complexion.
Squeeze one lemon and soak a cotton ball in the juice, then rub it all over your face and wash the juice off with water after 60 minutes. Using this treatment regularly will improve your skin tone and reduce the appearance of acne scars or dark stains and spots.
Lemon and coconut water
This mixture will not just clean your skin – it will also hydrate it and reduce the appearance of dark spots and stains on your face. Coconut water is especially great for your skin as it provides it with essential nutrients and lightens blemishes. Mix some coconut water with a few drops of lemon juice, then apply the mixture on your skin to hydrate it and make it glow.
Lemon, milk and honey
Mix a teaspoon of lemon juice and honey with a tablespoon of milk powder and apply the mixture on your face, then leave it to dry for about 10-15 minutes and rinse with cold water in the end. Repeat the process every day and your skin will shine like never before.
Lemon and sandalwood
Mix the juice from ½ a lemon with 4 teaspoons of sandalwood powder – if the mixture comes out too thick, add some water to liquefy it. Once you’re done, apply the mask on your face and leave it to work for 20 minutes before washing it off with lukewarm water. This paste will make your skin soft and clean and lighten its tone.
Lemon, turmeric and milk
Mix some lemon juice, turmeric and milk and apply the mixture on your face. Leave it to dry, then rinse with lukewarm water to lighten your skin tone.
Lemon, honey and essential oils
This mask works especially great for people with dry skin. Mix some lemon juice and honey and add a few drops of your favorite essential oil, then apply the mixture on your face and rinse with water after about half an hour. Repeat the process regularly and it will recover your skin’s natural glow.
As you can see, all the masks contain lemon as it has amazing properties for your skin. However, lemon juice shouldn’t be used on your skin if you have open wounds or rashes, and people with sensitive skin should be careful when using it as well. Never apply lemon juice on your skin undiluted if your skin is sensitive. If it’s not, you can safely use the masks to lighten your skin tone and erase dark spots and stains from your skin.
