1 or 2-ingredient beauty hacks? We're listening.
Quarantining yourself is the prime time to indulge in some self-care! We’ve rounded up some foolproof recipes to concoct simple beauty masks that actually work. Let us know if we've missed your fav beauty potion...
1. A Banana
Yup, you read that right. All you need to do is mash up a banana before letting it do its moisturizing wonders on your face. This 1-ingredient face mask will leave your face looking supple and soft. Stream your Youtube guilty pleasure and let it sit for about 20 minutes before rinsing off.
2. A milk paste
Another 1-ingredient beauty hack. All it takes is a ¼ of cup of powdered milk with some water enough to form it into a tick paste. Apply it on your face and let it dry before wiping it off. The result? A fresh & rejuvenated face to start off your day.
3. The oatmeal mask
A filling breakfast on its own, oatmeal is powerful face soothing agent for all skin types (hello, acne-prone!). Grind two tablespoons of oatmeal in a blender or food processor. Add one teaspoon of baking soda (optional) to the oatmeal with enough water to make a paste. Apply the oatmeal paste onto a clean face. Rinse off with cool water after 10 minutes.
4. The Vinegar mask
A natural toner! A vinegar mask is bound to tighten those stubborn pores. Create a homemade face mask by mixing 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar with 1/4 cup water. Gently apply the solution to your face and let it dry.
