Make Your Own Mask: 5 Great Homemade Anti Aging Skin Care Treats Right Out Of Your Kitchen

You don’t really need to get all of your anti aging skin care products off the shelf. After all, why run to the store when you can whip some up right in your very own kitchen? So here are five simple yet effective facial masks that will help you get smooth and silky younger looking skin.

Honey And Egg Mask

Homemade Anti Aging Skin CareIngredients: • 1 teaspoon of honey • 1 Egg Instructions: This is probably the simplest mask on the list. All you need to do is crack your egg in a bowl, add one teaspoon of honey, preferably organic plus, the darker, the better, then whisk away. No cooking, boiling, or what have you. Once your mixture is smooth and consistent simply spread it on your face as well as your neck. Leave the paste on for about 15-20 minutes. This is the perfect time for you to take off your shoes, close your eyes and relax. When the 15 minutes are up, wash it off with lukewarm water and pat your skin dry.

Papaya And Lemon Mask

Ingredients: • 1 papaya, ripe • Half a lemon • 1 Egg white • 1 tablespoon of honey • 2 tablespoons of plain yogurt Instructions: First you want to peel your papaya and cut it into tiny pieces to make mashing it much easier. When there are no chunks left, squeeze your lemon half (make sure to keep the seeds out), add your egg white, honey, and yogurt. Mix it all together until you have nice paste like substance. Then apply it on your face and neck and leave for about 15-20 minutes. Try to enjoy it and relax while waiting. When done, wash it all off with lukewarm water and pat dry.

Avocado Mask

Ingredients: • One fourth of an avocado, fresh • 1 carrot • 1 egg • 1 tablespoon of honey • 2 tablespoons of heavy cream Instructions: First of all, boil your carrot for about 10 minutes. You want it to be soft enough to mash. While waiting, you can start peeling your avocado and cutting it up into tiny pieces, small enough to mash too. When ready, add the cream and the honey and mix it all together until you have a smooth paste. Apply it evenly on your face and neck. Leave it for about 15- 20 minutes and take this time to relax as well. Then simply rinse off with lukewarm water and pat dry.

Green Tea Mask

Ingredients: • 1 teaspoon of powdered green tea, or you can also use fresh green tea from leaves if you have them. • 1 teaspoon of water • 1 tablespoon of honey • 2 tablespoons of red wine • 1 egg white Instructions: First of all, you should mix your green tea powder with just one teaspoon of water.Next add the honey, egg white, and red wine. Keep on mixing until you get a nice creamy paste. When done, spread it evenly on your face and neck. You want to leave it for 15-20 minutes and just relax while waiting. Rinse off with lukewarm water and pat dry.

Chocolate Mask

Ingredients: • 2 tablespoons of cocoa • 2 table spoons of yogurt • 3 tablespoons of oatmeal powder • 1 tablespoon of honey Instructions: No doubt, this is definitely the sweetest of the lot. Simply get a bowl and add all of the ingredients in. Keep on mixing until you have a nice paste. Now, unlike the other masks, you want to keep on massaging this on your face in a circular motion. You see, the oatmeal acts like an exfoliant, so by doing this you will help get rid of the dead cells on your skin. Then, leave it on for 20 minutes. When the 20 minutes are up, rinse it all off with lukewarm water and pat dry.

From Mask On To Mask Off

These homemade masks are great for your skin and are especially targeted to keep those darn wrinkles away leaving you with silky smooth skin. However, to make them more effective, after every “session”, you want to follow up with your everyday toner, and of course, let’s not forget, you want to moisturize, moisturize, MOISTURIZE.

The Best Time To Do It

Now that you know what kinds of masks you should try, you may be wondering just exactly what time of the day is best to use them. Actually, there is no best time per se if you are just thinking about the effectiveness of each one. However, if you factor in your hectic schedule of work or school and what not, right before you go to bed seems to be most ideal. Aside from just working on your skin directly, you also want to take this time to relax and unwind. After all, stress can also add a couple of years on your face too.

How Often

The great thing about these masks, as if they weren’t great already, is that you don’t need to use them every day. 3-4 times a week should be enough.
