Enhancing Beauty By Amy Taylor / July 27, 2014 Are you looking for ways to moisturize your face using the ingredients you love to eat in the morning? Here’s the good news – you can actually use your daily breakfast ingredients to create your homemade moisturizing face mask. Here are some amazing ideas you can use: Oatmeal mask A hot bowl of oatmeal topped with your favorite fruits sounds like a great start to an amazing day. But do you know that the same oatmeal you eat daily can be applied topically to make your skin look fresh and glowing? Here is one way you can use oatmeal to create your own face mask. Oatmeal + banana + milk To nourish your skin and face using this moisturizing face mask, you need 1 tablespoon of ground oatmeal, ½ banana, and 1 teaspoon of milk. Bananas contain potassium and Vitamin C that are necessary for a healthy skin. Milk is rich in lactic acid that helps hydrate the skin by increasing the skin’s capacity to store water. The oatmeal will help exfoliate and get rid of dead skin cells to force the skin to generate new and fresh cells. Mash the banana and mix all three ingredients in a bowl. When the mixture is ready, rub a generous amount of the mask to your face following a circular motion. Leave it on for 20 minutes. Rinse off with warm water and do a final rinse using cool water to close the pores. Milk mask They say that starting the day with milk will provide you the necessary nutrients for a healthy diet. As one of the top food sources of calcium and Vitamin D, milk is recommended to be part of breakfast to maintain a good health. Powdered organic milk + filtered water Making a homemade moisturizing face mask from milk can be as simple as mixing ¼ cup of powdered organic milk with water. Mix them well until you achieve a thick paste. Apply the paste evenly to your face and let it sit for 10 – 20 minutes or until the mask gets dry. Rinse off with warm water and you will definitely feel the difference on your skin! Egg mask Who likes eggs for breakfast? Well, I do. Eggs are great sources of proteins and eating them for breakfast ensures you feel full longer throughout the day. With that said, eggs are beneficial for those who are trying to lose weight as studies show that those who eat eggs for breakfast have actually lost more weight than those who ate bagels. Egg yolk + honey Whip up your face mask by separating the egg yolk from the egg white and setting it aside in a bowl. Using just the egg yolk, add 1 tablespoon of honey and stir the mixture until it’s smooth and creamy in texture. Eggs also contain Vitamins A and B and zinc, which are necessary for a healthy glowing skin. Moreover, honey is known as a natural astringent and is a very effective moisturizer. When the mixture is set, apply to the skin and leave it on for 10 – 15 minutes. Rinse it off with warm water and enjoy a great looking skin from this very simple yet amazing moisturizing face mask!
