Everyone loves a little pampering with skin care products and beauty treatments, but not the harsh chemicals and lofty price tags. If you want clean, glowing skin, you probably have everything you need right in your own kitchen. This fabulous milk face mask is perfect for rejuvenating dry skin.
- 1/2 cup of brown sugar
- 3 tbsp. 2% milk
- 1 tbsp. all natural honey
- 1 cucumber
Place the brown sugar in a small bowl. Brown sugar is made with some of the world's finest oils and is used in many skin care products. It not only tastes and smells great, but it moisturizes and rejuvenates skin while gently exfoliating and removing dead skin cells.
Add 3 tbsp. of 2% milk. The lactic acid in milk soothes and softens dry, itchy skin. Milk will help moisturize, while at the same time tightening wrinkles and refining pores.
Stir in 1 tbsp. all natural honey. Honey has been used for centuries in many natural remedies. Honey is known to kill bacteria and germs on the skin, and it also reduces inflammation and swelling, giving the face a taut and youthful appearance.
Peel and slice two pieces of cucumber to place over your eyes. Cucumber is a natural astringent and has the same pH as skin. It prevents and eliminates acne while restoring the skin's own natural protective layer.
Wash your face gently with warm water and pat dry. Apply the milk face mask to your face and neck, massaging gently for a few minutes. Place the cucumber over your eyes and relax for 20 minutes. Then, wash your face with warm water and gently pat dry.
You can store this milk face mask in the refrigerator for up to a week.
