The Best Homemade Beauty Face Masks

September 17, 2020

Homemade face masks, but we aren’t talking Halloween (or Covid!). We are talking beauty.

It is so relaxing to treat yourself to a spa treatment. But, a day at the spa can be somewhat costly. Fortunately, it's possible to have your spa day at home, in your bathroom, relaxing in your jammies and robe. A long, hot bath....soft music....some in a towel....and a homemade face mask. Ahhh, feeling relaxed already, aren't you.

There are some great recipes out in cyber-world for facial-style masks without the cost of a facial at a spa. Most are made to fill a specific facial need. It is best to use all-natural products with high standards of purity. Remember to start with a clean, dry face. Here are a few ideas I've culled just for you....

Hydrating Mask

An avocado mask is great for hydration. This is helpful for people who have spent some time outdoors, or who have maturing skin that needs so extra moisturizing.

½ ripe avocado (mashed)
1 tsp honey
1 tsp plain, yogurt (use organic, if possible)
2 tsp olive oil (optional - use for intense moisturizing)

  • Mix the mashed avocado with the yogurt and honey until it forms a paste.
  • Apply to your face.
  • Leave it on for approximately 15 minutes.
  • Rinse with lukewarm water and pat skin dry.

Acne Fighting Mask

Acne is an issue not only for teenagers. A soothing acne mask will calm down breakouts and refresh skin. Honey is an anti-microbial ingredient and cinnamon has anti-inflammatory properties, so this combination is great for fighting acne. This recipe from Queen Bee Salon & Spa is highly recommended.

2 Tbs honey
1 tsp cinnamon

  • Mix honey and cinnamon into a paste.
  • Apply to the acne affected areas.
  • Leave on for 10 - 15 minutes.
  • You can allow the mask to sit, or for a more intense treatment steam your face while the mask is on.
  • Rinse completely with warm (not hot!) water and pat skin dry.

For additional help fighting acne, apply farragio SECOND NATUREbutterfly All-Natural Acne-Fighting Moisturizer.

Glowing Sensitive Skin

Sensitive skin requires TLC. When you have sensitive skin, masks can be a case of trial and error since sensitive skin can be dry or oily, young or mature. Regardless of your skin type, here is a DIY facial mask that will give sensitive skin an instant glow without causing irritation.

2/3 cup cooked carrots
1-2 Tbs honey

  • Make a smooth paste with the carrots and honey.
  • Apply to your face.
  • Leave on for 10 - 15 minutes but do not allow it to dry completely.
  • Rinse off with warm water and pat dry.

Exfoliating Mask

Exfoliation is good for your face. As skin cells mature and die, they tend to collect on the outer layer of your skin. If left there, your complexion appears dull, and even blotchy. It is a good idea to exfoliate your skin using a gentle scrubbing cleanser, a washcloth, or an exfoliating mask. The website has a few recipes for exfoliating masks. Here is one of my favorites, and getting it on your lips is a tasty bonus!

1 Tbs plain yogurt
1 tsp sugar

  • Mix well, then apply a thick layer to your face.
  • (It is recommended to apply to your neck too, since it's important to renew that skin as well)
  • Let the mask slightly dry, approximately 15 minutes.
  • With wet fingers, exfoliate the face (and neck) gently, using a circular motion.
  • Rinse well with warm water, ensuring there isn’t a sticky feeling left behind.

For an even more invigorating exfoliating mask, try farragio SECOND NATUREbutterfly All-Natural Nourishing Coffee Scrub. Not only is it a scrub, it can be used as a hydrating mask.

Adding a facial mask to your beauty routine is a simple way to improve your skin’s appearance and a relaxing way to treat yourself. If you are looking for an ageless face, a glowing complexion, or an acne treatment, a DIY facial can be a perfect complement to your beauty schedule. Be sure to follow up your DIY face mask with moisturizing all-natural products like those offered here at farragio.

Easy DIY Bedroom Nightstands

September 10, 2020

My daughter had moved out a few years ago and then got married, so I needed to refurnish and redecorate her room for when she and her husband come to visit. The few things that had been left in her room were the curtains, a secondhand dresser, and some accent pillows.

I wanted to redecorate the room as inexpensively as possible, and the first thing to tackle was the bed. Someone in my neighborhood was coincidentally selling their bedframe and mattress for $100, and I found a cute Percale ...

My hair is naturally wavy/curly (frizzy!) and it's always a bit of a challenge to keep it looking healthy. When I was younger it was very coarse but I didn't drink much water then and I found that as I started to drink more water, the condition of my hair started to improve.

I've noticed that other changes I have made to my diet and hair-washing routine have also helped to improve the health of my hair and so I've compiled a list of some of the easy ways you can improve the condition o...

Keto has been around for a while and is still very popular. While it can sometimes be a challenge to work in recipes that meet the low-carb requirement, there are more and more recipes becoming available all the time that make staying on it easier and easier.
