A DIY Facial Scrub and Mask, in just 3 steps sounds too good to be true? Read on!
Work stress, traffic, poor nutrition, fatigue are elements that damage the skin and help it lose its properties, nothing better than a mini spa in the comfort of home to recover luminosity in our beaten skin.
1 – Cleaning. Add hand-warm water in a pan and we add lavender, chamomile and green tea and soon we approach until placing the face in the container and cover us with a towel to receive the vapors that it sends on the face.
2 – Exfoliation. Once the surface is clean, apply an exfoliating Lemon and almond peeling; This mixture must be prevented from coming in contact with liquids, prepare it before washing and stir it with your own fingers before using it.
– ½ teaspoon lemon zest
.- ½ cup of sea salt
.- ½ cup sweet almond oil
The idea is to use the exfoliant on the whole face as if it were cream and to do circular massage in all areas. The important thing is not the force (because it can hurt the skin) but the time, between 30 and 40 seconds of facial massage, and then gently remove it with a warm wet wipe.
3 – Mask. The third step of the homemade facial spa is the mask. The exfoliation has opened the pores, removed the impurities, and the skin has been arranged to receive the benefits of treatment in the form of a mask that relaxes and moisturizes the skin. This can also be homemade, and as the idea is to relax, honey is the ideal ingredient; A mixture of honey and egg is transformed into a resting elixir for the face.
We already know the excellent properties of the cucumber: it is delicious, fresh and ideal for a balanced diet. Well, you can not imagine the changes you can achieve in your skin, especially if you have taken too much sun on a beach day.

Remove with plenty of cold water, and you will see your skin fresh and moisturized.
If all the steps were fulfilled literally, we would have a whole new face and ready to cope with the challenges of the next day.
