I’m a huge believer in natural remedies. From simple cold remedies to homemade face masks, I believe in going the natural route. When it comes to skin care, I’ve always followed the mantra of “less is more”, less chemicals and more ingredients that are unprocessed/unaltered. In my medicine cabinet you’ll find less of the latest beauty rages and more essential oils, rose water and simple cold creams.
Winter weather can be harsh on our skin. Snow and wind make our cheeks and nose ache while indoor heating systems leave us dry and itchy. And while it’s not always easy to make time for a spa treatment, some of our best treatments can be made right within our kitchen. Keep reading for five simple face masks that you can make at home to pamper that gorgeous part of you that greets the world each and every day.
For best results from these masks, steam your face for at least 5 minutes before application. Doing so, will open up the pores of the skin and let the mask effectively soak in.
