Secrets of Anti-Ageing Aficionado:How to Look 10 Years Younger
Our team put together some face mask recipes we love for keeping skin looking youthful. Many of these ingredients are fresh, so your skin will benefit from the high nutrient content. Don’t worry! We’re not expecting you to go forage in your backyard for herbs or swim to Atlantis to collect a mystical sand substance. We kept it mostly to ingredients you have in your kitchen.
Before applying a mask, cleanse your skin.
After you apply the mask, lay down with your feet in the air to encourage blood to flow toward your face. Surround yourself with sounds you love—classical music, ocean waves, Food Network (we won’t judge).
In general, you can leave a mask on for about 15-20 minutes, or until it dries. If it dries too quickly, spritz it with water or toner.
Rinse your mask off with warm water and use a washcloth if needed to completely remove it. Splash your face with cold water to close your pores.
After you’re finished masking, follow up with your normal toner, serum, and oil. Voila! People will be asking you whether you’re taking algebra or geometry next semester. Okay, probably not, but you’ll feel great.
This recipe from Natural Skin Care: Alternative & Traditional Techniques, by Joni Loughran.
- 1 teaspoon of facial-quality clay (our Purifying Mud Mask would work perfectly)
- 1 teaspoon of instant oatmeal or oat flour
- ½ tablespoon of powdered milk
- 1 teaspoon of honey
- 1 teaspoon of olive oil
- water, to achieve paste consistency
- 1 drop of any essential oil that you love (neroli, rose, lavender, or frankincense would be perfect!)
Instructions: Mix first five ingredients together until thoroughly combined. Add enough water to make the mixture into a paste. Add the essential oil of your choice (just a drop!) and mix until combined. Apply to your face and enjoy ten minutes of aromatherapy! Clay is rich in minerals and removes impurities from the skin. No matter our age, skin can always benefit from detoxing! Milk cleanses and nourishes. Make sure to use high quality, organic, full fat milk for optimal benefits. Olive oil provides moisture and minerals. Honey helps bind this moisture to your skin and lends its own skin brightening qualities. The benefits from the essential oil will differ depending on which you choose, but choose an aroma you love and breathe deep to relax.
Having some recipes for anti-aging masks allows you to whip up something fresh whenever you and your skin need a boost. Try to make time for a weekly mask to keep your skin young and nourished. Invite a friend over and treat him or her to your favorite recipe.
