How To: Make Your Own Face Mask

Posted by Jessie at 17:07
Hello everyone! Do you ever wish that you didn't have to spend loads of hard-earned money on little things like face masks? Isn't it annoying when you realise that you are putting harsh chemicals and preserved ingredients on your skin? I thought so too, so I decided to make my own face mask from now on which works the best and defo helps my skin type.
Today, I am going to be sharing them with you.

This face mask that I am sharing is suitable for oily, combo and normal skin. It helps remove unneeded oil on my face, but doesn't strip off all of the moisture that is needed to maintain healthy skin. I usually vary what I put on my face, but mostly this mask the thing that I go for. All you need to have is two ingredients that can be easily bought from the local shops.

What do you need?
♥ Yoghurt - preferably fresh with normal fat in it.
♥ Gram Flour
♥ Table Spoon
♥ Medium Sized Bowl

How much do you need? 
Just a table spoon of the Gram Flour and Yoghurt
One spoon and one bowl

How should you make it? 
It's really easy to make. All you have to do is take one table spoon of the gram flour and put it in the bowl. Next, take a table spoon of yoghurt and mix it with the gram flour in the bowl. This should form a thick consistent paste. That's all you need to do, because that is your face mask done.

How should you apply it?
That's also easy. The mask may look very little quantity at first, but trust me it's more than enough. Take a generous amount on your fingertips and onto your face. Keep the layer not too thin but not too thick. Cover the whole face with an even layer of mask and there you have.
If you have any left, then apply it to your hands like liquid hand wash, rub it and wash off instantly for super soft hands! (Make sure you don't block the sink though!)
Now, once it's on your face sit and wait for around 25-30 minutes before washing it off. If you notice that the mask has dried (ie: it's no longer a paste on your face) before 25-30 minutes, you can wash it off.

Once it is washed off, you are ready to enjoy your fresh glowing even toned skin! That's all you have to do, and what did this cost you? Less than 25 pence! The other good thing is that it has no ingredients you don't know of and it's made by you yourself!

Do know any other home made face masks techniques? If so let me know!

CAUTION: There's nothing to worry about. But if something happens, it's not MY fault. YOU are totally responsible for what you apply on your face.

No, Merilin. I don't think normal flour works!! :( Gram has lots of good stuff for skin.
