LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- Face masks are the fast pass to a clearer, more radiant complexion. Here are a few do-it-yourself recipes using ingredients you've already got in your kitchen from Yahoo! Shopping.
To start, prep your face. A mask is one of the fastest ways to get a healthy glow because it delivers a potent dose of ingredients into your skin.
You can apply a mask as often as once a week, but make sure to cleanse and gently exfoliate your skin first, which makes it easier for the ingredients to sink in.
For moisture, a hydrating mask will make you look dewy, and it plumps up lines so they're harder to see. In a bowl, stir together one tablespoon of honey, five tablespoons of dry oatmeal and two tablespoons of plain yogurt. Spread the mix on your face and leave it on for 20 minutes.
For a deep clean, coat your face with ingredients that draw out impurities and unclog pores. Mix together a fourth of a cup of mashed-up strawberries, three tablespoons of plain yogurt, and one tablespoon of rice flour. Smooth the paste on your skin and chill out for 20 minutes.
Also, don't forget your eyes. Place two chamomile tea bags in hot water, stick them in the fridge to cool, then place one over each eye after you've applied your face mask.
When it's time to take if off, follow these steps to seal in the benefits. To remove a clay mask or any homemade formula, gently wipe it off with a warm, damp washcloth, and then apply your usual face cream.
When using a store-bought moisturizing mask, simply tissue it off, no rinsing needed.
