Simple Hydrating Face Mask

Face masks come in a variety of forms and contain several different ingredients. Some claim to be more natural than others while some are more expensive than others. How do you know what works and what doesn’t? My only recommendation is to do your research, read product reviews or speak to people who have actually used the product. The last thing you want to do is use a product, have a reaction of some kind and end up in hospital. It may sound extreme, but it’s always better to be safe than sorry! 

As every person is different, I cannot tell you which products will work for you and which won’t. To be honest I don’t use face masks very often. I was asked by a friend if I knew any natural face mask recipes and thought it might be interesting to make a video for you all. Based on what I know about healthy ingredients and some recommendations made by my nutritionist, I wanted to share a simple 3-ingredient face mask you can test at home using cheap, easy to find ingredients.

If you’d like to see more videos like this, I have a few more simple recipes I can share. If you find this helpful, share it, like it, and leave a comment let me know if you want more! 

Cucumber

A simple search query for “Cucumber” will pull up article after article about the multiple benefits of this vegetable. I won’t go into detail but will say that cucumbers are comprised of about 95% water and help hydrate your skin. Many people also claim that cucumbers help lighten the dark circles under the eyes and reduce puffy eyes.  

Egg White

Egg whites contain protein, which is believed to treat fine lines and wrinkles, rejuvenate dull or dry skin, and help improve skin tone and elasticity. I have also read many reviews of people using egg whites to treat acne. 

Honey (preferably raw)

Honey contains antiseptic, antibacterial, and antioxidant properties, which can help combat acne, smooth out wrinkles, and lighten up dark circles under the eyes.

NOTES: Make sure you thoroughly wash your face before applying the mask.
