Hello all, welcome back to another Mask Mondays. Today’s mask I wanted to try a DIY face mask that targets pores. Although I do not have large pores, I do notice some of them, especially around my nose and chin area.
- 1 egg white
- 1 tablespoon of honey
- A splash/ squeeze of lemon juice (you can also use lime juice)
Egg whites and lemon have astringent properties that will tighten the skin and make enlarged pores shrink. The honey is an important ingredient in this recipe because it will boost your skin with moisture which is highly needed in these cold/ fall days. My thoughts after trying this face mask were that I loved it 🙂 it truly does work my pores were pretty much non-existent and I did feel my skin a little tighter and brighter. Highly recommend this recipe.
For my hair, I decided to give my hair some extra tender loving care and go with a DIY hair mask which is great for my fellow curly hair ladies & gents.
- 1 egg
- 2 tablespoons of mayonnaise
- 1 tablespoon of olive oil
- 1 tablespoon of honey
Combine all the ingredients and blend them. It’s important to apply this mask in small sections to clean, damp hair. Cover your hair with a shower cap to seal the heat for 30-60 minutes then shampoo and condition your hair as usual. I absolutely love this hair mask it made my hair feel a lot more hydrated my curls were frizz-free and I did not feel any greasy residue afterward. I highly recommend you all giving it a try and use every few weeks.
For my lips, I have been using a lip balm from Dr. Bronner’s organic peppermint. This leaves my lips feeling soft and hydrated.
This concludes my Mask Monday; I wish you all a great week. 🙂 As always, I thank you for stopping by.
Until next time! Have a great day
Hello, all 🙂 welcome back to another Mask Monday. It’s officially Fall 🙂 chilly, sweater weather one of my favorite seasons. I will miss summer being able to enjoy the outdoors and exploring with my son yet I am excited about all the new memories we will create.
This week’s Mask Monday I have decided to give yet another DIY all-natural hair mask a try. This one if for Brittle hair. I don’t know if its postpartum hair or if it’s just damaged by the sun hair that I have. The mask is a simple one just like the previous ones I have tried with two ingredients Milk and Honey.
Milk and honey hair mask 2 tablespoons of honey mixed with ½ cup of room temperature milk. Some helpful tips are to make sure your two ingredients are thoroughly mixed before putting it all over your hair. You are going to evenly pour it into your hair and allow it to sit for an hour. Once this mask is done you can wash and condition with the shampoo or conditioner of your choice.
For my face, I wanted to try another DIY natural face mask as well. I have been wanting to try masks that have ingredients in which were in my kitchen and am able to do myself. (I am starting to gravitate towards a healthier/ more natural route.)
Honey Citrus Mask
Combine three tablespoons of orange juice with a quarter cup of honey. Rub the mixture lightly over your face and then leave it on for 15 minutes. Once the 15 minutes up rinse your face with lukewarm water. Moisturize shortly after. This honey citrus mask is perfect for giving your skin a brighter, glowy skin.
I loved this natural face mask it smelled amazing and did give my skin a natural healthier glow.
This concludes this week’s Mask Monday. As always, I thank you for stopping by today. If you have a face mask or hair mask suggestion whether DIY or store brands please leave them below in the comment section.
Until next time have a great day!
Hello all 🙂 welcome back to another Mask Monday.
For my hair, I am using a deep repair masque by Macadamia. My hair is in desperate need of a deep conditioner and some repair. I recently went to the hair salon and the hairstylist mentioned my hair is on the more dryer side. She did do a minimum trim and recommended I look for more deep repair types of hair masks. And instead of doing them once a week to do it twice a week.
Macadamia masque smells amazing and has benefits which include providing deep nourishment and ultra-conditioning hair restoration, does not weigh your hair down. I left my masque for 10 minutes before rinsing it out with lukewarm water as mentioned in the packet.
For my face, I went with a blueberry and yogurt face mask- soothing cream facial mask which moisturizes and hydrates skin. This mask smells just like blueberries and has antioxidants which help your face in looking youthful and healthy. I loved how easy it was put on my face.
I did get some recipes of healthier natural alternatives for hair and face masks in which I will be using starting next week (I have to pick some ingredients up). So, look out for my DIY natural face mask Mondays and how much I like them vs the ones I have purchased.
This concludes my face mask Monday, as always, I thank you all for stopping by.
Until next time,
Welcome back to another Mask Monday!
This Monday’s masks are all about purifying and clarifying I also wanted to do a couple of DIY masks that I have been seeing around lately.
Face mask used: avocado and oatmeal purifying clay face mask. I love the smell of it nice and sweet. Love the mint green color I used it on my face, and going down my neck and chest area. After drying I washed it off and felt my skin tighter, smoother, softer and cleaner. Highly recommend this face mask which you could purchase at a local CVS.
For my hair mask I used a DIY hair mask:
Apple cider vinegar, lemon, avocado, and an egg white. After mixing all four items I let it sit on my hair for 40 minutes. Washing it off with cold water left my hair feeling clean and soft at the same time.
For my lips I used another DIY mask:
One little packet of brown sugar, 10 drops of lemon 1 teaspoon of honey. I exfoliated my lips. And used coconut oil afterward as a balm
For my eyes, I used two cucumber slices just to help depuff them.
This concludes this week’s Mask Monday. I hope you all have a wonderful week. May you find a day this week to relax, practice self-care. It’s important to our well being.
As always thank you for stopping by. Wishing you all the best.
Until next time!
Hello to all 🙂 welcome back to another blog. Today I decided to start a new fun and cool series in my blog (social media accounts) called Mask Monday. As a first time mom I haven’t been the best when it comes to self-love/ self-care which I was good at prior to having my baby. In order to hold myself accountable I decided to document and post it on my blog as a diary way to look back and see what types of brands I’ve tried and which one works for what type of skin problem or area, which hair mask works best on my curls and which ones didn’t.
Now on to the fun part this week’s Mask Monday.
Eyes: For the eyes, I decided to go and try Clean & Clear’s new night relaxing jelly eye sheet mask with seaweed extract- Soothes and replenishes skin.
Face: Masque Bar Grey Clay peel off mask- Cleanse. Soothe. Purify. This peel-off clay mask helps to deep cleanse, moisturize and soothe skin.
Sally’s box: Friendly Berry Berry Lip Patch- Hydrates lips
My final thoughts:
For the eye mask, I placed it into the refrigerator for about 30 minutes before using it. It felt amazing on the skin and I did enjoy it. My eyes did feel hydrated and less puffy. I fell in love and will be repurchasing for nights in which baby sleeps and I get to indulge in a movie and some pampering.
For the face mask, I did feel my skin was a lot smoother. I enjoy using the peel off method and this clay mask did not dry out my skin like some clay masks do. I do recommend this face mask by Masque bar and will be repurchasing.
Lip patch had a horrible taste to it I accidentally licked my lips and it was just bad. My lips did feel smooth. I will not be repurchasing this particular lip patch because of its taste.
That was all the masks I used this Monday thank you for stopping by. If you have any masks whether it’s a face mask, hair mask or lip mask please let me know I am always looking for recommendations.
As always, I thank you for coming and wish you all a great one.
