Well, I remember my mother said face is your business card, and she always bought me tons of creams, for the day and night, and middle day and middle night too. I grow up with facial creams all over me. And now, I have a beautiful skin thanks to her. We need to care about us, specially our face which have a delicate skin. If you like to go out, work outside, beach person, you need to take care with sun protection too. Right now you find in the market a lot of products for skin care.
Some people don’t pay attention to this kind of thing, specially kids and teens. Mothers and adults have a serious job to educate them about their precious skin. I think we need to teach kids and teens that this is very important. If you go to a party, have fun and before bed, please clean your face of make up and make it a routine for life, never go to bed with make up in your face. Also, we need to teach to our kids to wear sun protection. Going out to the sun in a beautiful day is a good but the sun can be harmful. Is very painful when you don’t take precautions in a sunny day.. So, you can buy creams and face mask, or you can make them at home, with products of your own kitchen… yes, is true I remember as a kid with yogurt on my face because my mother said it was good for my skin, and I still do that kind of things… So here are some classic face mask from my mother:
Homemade Yogurt face mask
Just take 1 spoon of plain yogurt and place it on your face, wait 20 minutes and rinse your face. You will feel the difference, specially if you have a greasy skin.
Cider Vinegar Face Mask
Yes, cider vinegar. Take 1/2 tablespoon of sider vinegar and 1/2 tablespoon of water, mix it together and apply as a toner on your skin. You let it dry. Then you can use a facial cream with sun protection.
Milk Facial Mask
Just like Cleopatra, you can have that beautiful skin that is so famous. Take 1/2 powdered milk and mix it with enough water until you have a thick paste. Take a cotton ball and fill it with this milky mask thoroughly your face and neck and let it dry for about 10 minutes. Than wash it gently and see how fresh and light your skin is now.
My mom’s favorite.. She loved this facial mask, is easy, try to light some vanilla candle if you don’t like the smell. Put a full spoon on your hand and spread it in your face like if you a alice of bread, wait for 20 minutes, watch some TV or bake some cookies and wash your face, you will feel a smooth and soft skin. Also is good for your hair too…
You don’t need to spend a lot of money to have a clean, young and beautiful skin. You just need to love yourself enough to take care everyday of yourself. If you need a plastic surgery, those advises are not for you, but for a busy woman who handle a lot in a day, taking care of yourself is not a big deal. Wake up in the morning, say your prayer (whatever it may be), than take a cup of tea, and take a nice bath, clean your face, and go out to the world with a big smile in your face. Good luck!!
