Home Remedies For Face Lift Using Homemade Mask:
1. Egg White Face Mask:
This is the best suggestion anybody (including doctors and World Wide Web) can give you for skin tightening.
This face lift mask works magically on skin and suits all skin types. It not only lifts your face instantly but removes age spots, dullness, and pigmentation. All you require is Egg White.
First of all, you need to break the egg. Now separate the white and yellow parts.
Apply the white part on your face and neck and let it dry. Once it has dried, then rinse it off. Try to use lukewarm water while cleaning.
If you want to make the best out of this mask and have some extra time, then add vitamin E drops and half tsp fresh lemon juice to it. You will be amazed to see the instant results.
The only drawback with this mask is the foul smell of eggs.There are also some people who do not prefer using egg. So for them don’t worry we have a lot more.
2. Yogurt and Lemon Juice Mask:
As the name says, for this mask you will require one tsp yogurt and one tsp fresh lemon juice. You will be surprised to know that this mask prevents acne and blemishes as well.
Mix the ingredients in a bowl and blend them well. Apply this mixture evenly all over your face and neck.
Let it dry. It will take about 20-30 minutes to dry. Meanwhile, you can put cucumber slices over your eyes and relax.
Once the mask dries, rinse it off with lukewarm water. Moisturize your skin with any oil-free moisturizer for the best-looking skin.
Before you apply this mask, make sure that you have cleaned your face properly with a cleanser of your choice. Cleansing helps to open the clogged pores and hence leads to better results. Always try to use lukewarm water with any mask.
3. Banana and Cream Mask:
Well as delicious the name is, so are the outcomes. For this firming facial mask, you will need cream and banana of course.
One ripe banana along with a quarter cup of heavy whipping cream will be sufficient. Now if you think what is heavy whipping cream then here is the answer.
It is usual whipping cream with more milk fat content (36-40%).
Mash the banana correctly, and mix it with the cream. You need to make a thick paste out of it.
Apply this paste all over your neck and face and let it dry. It will take about 15 minutes to dry. After that wash it off with a damp cloth or lukewarm water.
Here is a tip which you can use along with these masks to increase its effectiveness. Add a capsule of vitamin E to your mask and the mask will give improved benefits.
Vitamin E is an active ingredient of all the artificial anti-ageing masks, so you can buy a Vitamin E capsule from the market and use it.
4. Egg White, Honey and Flour/Fullers Earth Mask:
As I mentioned earlier, egg white is the best component for a face lifting mask. This mask will be an extension to the classic egg white mask.
Here you will require honey, flour or fullers earth (Multani Mitti) and if you have dry skin then glycerin as well.
First of all, your task is to separate the white and yellow part. For this, you need to break the egg and then extract only the egg white. Now mix all the other ingredients to egg white.
You have a choice between flour and fullers earth; you can use either of them. If your skin is dry then you can add glycerin to this mixture.
Now mix them well and make a paste. Apply it all over your face and neck. Let it dry and then remove it with lukewarm water.
If you are using this mask in summers then I would suggest you use Multani Mitti as it gives a cooling effect. It removes blemishes and also lightens your skin.
But this is not advisable for people with dry or sensitive skin because Multani Mitti draws away the oil from the skin, so for such people prefer flour in place of fullers earth.
For people with dry skin, use glycerin too.
Using Multani Matti can cause slight tingling sensation but it’s completely normal.
5. Egg, Lemon Juice and Sugar Mask
This is probably one of the rarest masks where you need egg yolks instead of the whites. Anyways here you will need two egg yolks, fresh lemon juice, and one tsp sugar.
Beat the two egg yolks and add sugar and a tsp of lemon juice to it. Beat it to mix them properly. Now massage and apply it over your face and neck. Let it dry. After 10 minutes rinse off the mask with lukewarm water.
Whenever you massage any mask over your face, use the tip of your fingers and try to use a circular motion. This is the best way to massage.
6. Egg, Sugar and Yogurt Mask
This, as you can guess is a slight variation to the previous mask. Here you will need egg white, sugar, and yogurt.
Beat an egg and separate the white part from the yellow part. Take 1 tsp yogurt and 1/8 tsp sugar in a separate bowl and mix them thoroughly. Now add the egg white to this yoghurt mixture.
Apply the mask over your face and wait for it to dry. Rinse it off with lukewarm water
Sugar is well known for its exfoliation properties.Yogurt is also very good for the skin. So all these packs remove blemishes and dark spots along with lifting the skin.
7. Honey and Avocado Mask
For this DIY facelift mask, you will need avocado (fruit) and two tsp honey.
Honey works as a cleansing and moisturizing agent while avocado is known to build up collagen in your skin. And as I mentioned before, collagen is very necessary for skin tightening.
Take out the pulp of the avocado fruit and mash it properly. Add honey to the mashed pulp and make an even paste out of it.
Apply and massage the paste all over your face and let it dry. Make sure the paste is thick. It will take more time to dry. Meanwhile, relax your facials muscles. After it has dried, rinse it off with lukewarm water and pat your face dry.
