Homemade Facial Masks Recipes

It is much better if you can use the home-made face-pack instead of ready-made.

Whereas Indian women are attracted towards make-up, the European women are getting more and more inclined towards using the herbal and natural therapy. These beautifying things do not affect the skin adversely. Though the costly make-up bought from the market increases your beauty temporarily, it cannot be overlooked that the repeated use of these artificial means leaves scar in the shape of early ageing. Homemade face pack helps in providing natural oil and moisture to the skin. If you just look carefully you will find many of the ingredients of face-pack in your kitchen. Some of the important ways to prepare face-pack at home are as below:



Egg Face Mask

Take the yolk of one egg, mix in it two spoonfuls of rose water and one spoonful of honey and preserve. Use it once a week. It is useful in winters. If you have wrinkles, take the white of an egg, beat it, mix in it three spoonfuls of oat-powder; one spoonful of honey and apply on the face. For still more dry skin another method is thus: Yolk of one egg, two spoonfuls of orange juice, half a spoon of lemon juice and a few drops of sweet almond oil. Mix it well, beat it and apply it. Keep it for half an hour before washing it off.

Soyabeans or Masoor Dal (Lentil) Pack

Take fifty grams soyabeans (or masoor dal), soak it in water over-night. Grind it well next morning into a paste after removing the shells. Mix unboiled milk and almond oil in the paste and apply.

Besan (Gram Flour) Pack

Take one spoonful of besan, a pinch of turmenc (haldi), half a spoon of honey and half a spoon of olive oil. Mix it well and apply.

Multani Mud Face Mask

Take a spoonful of finely ground multani mud, a spoonful of rose water or cleansing-milk and prepare a thick paste. Apply a thick coat on the oily part of your face and a light coat on the dry part. Let it remain for ten minutes before washing it off with lukewarm water.


Urd Dal Pack

Grind urd dal into a fine powder, mix rose water, glycerine and almond oil, make a paste and apply.

Sandalwood Pack

Make sandalwood paste, add rosewater and apply it on your face. It has cooling effect. If the skin is oily, add a small quantity of sulphur to it.

Mint Pack

Grind fresh green mint and apply the paste on your face for twenty to twenty-five minutes. It absorbs internal heat of the skin.

Curd Facial Mask

Take 1 spoonful of besan, 2 spoonfuls of curd. Mix well, apply it for half an hour. It is soothing for the skin affected by heat-wave. Butter coating: If the face is dry due to heat, beat a spoonful of butter in water and apply.

Cucumber Pack

Peel a cucumber and grind it fine. Put unboiled milk in it and apply. It is softening.

How many times should one do the facial? It depends upon your age and the nature of skin. For those who are in the age-group of fourteen to twenty-five and who have normal skin or at least do not have a very dry skin, facial once a month is sufficient but for those who have dry or dull skin facial twice a month is necessary. For those who are older, facial once a week is a must so that age does not show on the face.
