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, all welcome back to another blog 🙂 Mask Monday.
This past weekend has been a great humid weekend Jlots of humidity, heat, and rain. My hair has been frizzy, I did have a burnt scalp which has been really rough lately. My face has been doing really well as far as no breakouts, but it has been on the dry side. This week my goal was to add moisture into my face.
For my hair, I decided to try a new product YES to Tea tree scalp relief- Soothing hair clay mask. I love this product. This is the only thing I tried that instantly fix my dryness and itchiness of my head due to being sunburnt. It also smoothed my hair and helped out with having my hair frizzy. Love the smell and a pretty green color.
For my face I decided to try JiinJU beauty 5 step travel kit- I came across this at a local CVS pharmacy. I found this kit to be perfect to try. Steps start with a cleansing oil (1), foaming face wash(2), a toner (3) and then you do the actual face mask for step four which was an avocado sheet mask (super moisture just as described in the mask.) after applying the sheet mask a hydrating cream is my fifth and final step. This Korean beauty product was by far a great experience a mini skincare routine which truly left my skin feeling fresh and moisturized.
For my lips, I used elf- lip exfoliating lip balm in the mint flavor. It definitely removed all the dead skin I had in my lips but also hydrated them as well.
My eyes were on the puffier side this Monday so to try and help treat it I decided to go with cucumber slices and place them in my eye area for 20 minutes. I did show improvement.
This sums up this week’s mask Monday. I hope you all enjoyed it and perhaps found something worth trying. As always, I thank you for stopping by today.
Have a great day until next time
