Home Made Face Remedy

When I was a teenager, I remember bugging mum about a face mask and asking repeated questions about what it was, why did women do it, etc. I remember thinking that it all seemed so glamourous (yes – despite the muck on your face, to girls at that age it did).

Face maskI bugged mum for ages to let me try one, but we had just moved into a brand new home that my parents had built, and I am sure money was tight, so mum put together a home-made toning face mask. It was really simple – egg white. That was all.

I remember being really disappointed – typical teenager.

Then we scooped the goop on our face, waited til it was dry and then washed it off.

My face was so soft! I wasn’t disappointed any more… I thought Mum was a genius!

I write about it as I still use this simple face mask – and it always reminds me of Mum!

I’ve added a few other natural remedies to the list:

  • Want really smooth skin? Scrub body (not face) in the shower with fresh coffee grinds – all over. Your skin will feel soooo soft afterwards.
  • White teeth? Brush once a month with bi-carbonate of soda mixed with enough white vinegar to make a paste.
  • For a moisturising face mask – use the egg yolk for five minutes
  • Got an acne break-out? Get a Vitamin e capsule and squeeze the gel out from the capsule and put on the red area. Leave for a couple of hours then rinse. Do this before going to bed. The next morning you should wake up less red. I use this for acne caused by menopause, and it works with teenagers as well.

Hope you find these useful, and if you have any of your own, please post here!

Jaklang – my mother would have been happy if my brother volunteered to use any kind of cleanser – facial or otherwise! LOL
