From morning to evening, six days a week, the hustle and bustle of everyday life undoubtedly wrecks our skin. After a tiring week, I was left with a dreary, dull complexion as well and my skin was begging for some revitalizing treatment. This weekend I wanted to pamper my skin with intensive care and nourishment, but with lots of tasks lined up for the day, a visit to a spa or cosmetic salon was nearly impossible. Finally, I decided to make my own rejuvenating face mask at home, it saved both time and money and the results were wow!
One skin care product that is truly pampering is a rich moisturizing face mask. The deep cleansing and conditioning action of face masks are great to refresh and soothe your tired skin. Experimenting and making a face mask at home was not just fun, in addition, I was assured that it is completely natural. It’s like you have got the golden nuggets in your hand and can now make your own jewels.
Fruit Mask for a fruity beauty!
Like me, if you love fruits, this one is going to be your favorite to get a healthy refreshing glow on your skin. Mash two pieces of papaya, a pineapple slice, two mango slices and mix it with a teaspoon of honey, sounds simple, it is indeed! Leave it on for fifteen to twenty minutes and rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water.
So, you love orange juice, but what about the pulp that you normally throw in trash? This time don’t, instead, blend it with oatmeal, yogurt, honey or all the three together to make a refreshing face mask. Try it, it’s going to be great and your skin will love you for this.
I really love this mask, all because it offers numerous benefits apart from the revitalizing effect. It deep cleanses and detoxifies your skin, as a bonus it eliminates blackheads and whiteheads too. Blend and strain a cucumber, and mix it with hot water in a saucepan along with chopped mint leaves. Heat the mixture for some more time and wait till it cools down before you apply it on your face. Let it sit for fifteen minutes and then wash it off. The whole process seems long and tedious but the results were awesome!
Try one of these face masks to nourish your skin; let us now begin the exfoliation part for our skin.

Wash it off with warm water, along with all the dirt and dead skin cells, for a fresh, clean skin to delight you.
