As a small appreciation gift to you from us, here are 3 wonderful masks that will help you do just that!
But remember, although these masks will help improve your skin this winter, the very first thing that must be done to break the cycle of acne, marks and scars is to PREVENT acne from forming. AcnEase®
prevents pimples from forming and reduces the number of pimples that
progress to inflammatory pustules, and in doing so it helps prevent skin
damage. By reducing the new damage to skin, your body can work on
repairing the skin and reducing scarring.
This egg-white mask is great for oily skin with large pores. It
will refresh and tighten your oily skin and make it look much healthier
than before. In the winter, it will create a natural barrier to protect
your skin from harsh winds and cold.
Directions: Smooth a beaten egg white all over your face. Let rest for half an hour and rinse with water. Follow up with non-comedogenic moisturizer.
An oatmeal mask is a great remedy for skin that's been exposed to lots of cold weather. It'll make your face feel soft, refreshed and healed.
Directions: Mix together in equal proportions two tablespoons
of raw oatmeal flakes, egg yolk and honey. Keep the mask on your face
for about 20 minutes, wash with lukewarm water and pat dry. Follow up with non-comedogenic moisturizer.
This pumpkin mask
nourishes, cleans and effectively fades dark spots on your face. For
best results, use it at least 4 days a week.
Directions: In a glass bowl, mix two
tablespoons of well-blended pumpkin pulp (if you have very sensitive or
dry skin, use avocado), one egg white, one teaspoon of fresh lemon
juice, and one tablespoon of fresh tomato juice into a smooth paste.
Apply at night in a gentle massaging motion after removing any makeup
and washing your face. Leave on for about 30 minutes and wash with
lukewarm water. Follow up with non-comedogenic moisturizer.
