Skin texture deteriorates with age. However, it is possible to maintain the skin’s natural elasticity and texture for an extended period of time. The skin’s elasticity deteriorates over time due to the loss of collagen that is caused by aging. Collagen is a protein with a DNA-like structure and is responsible for the skin’s natural elasticity. Thus, skin elasticity deteriorates with the decrease in the production of collagen. Facial masks can be used to improve the production of collagen and improve the skin’s elasticity. The best homemade masks for a facelift are discussed below.
Honey And Avocado Mask
One of the best homemade masks for a facelift is the honey and avocado mask. Honey is a natural moisturizer while avocado improves production of collagen by the skin. This mask is prepared by mashing avocado pulp and adding honey to the pulp. The resultant should be applied evenly to the face and allowed to dry. Due to the paste being thick, it will take more time to dry. Once dried, the mask should be removed using lukewarm water.
Cucumber, Lemon, and egg mask
The cucumber, lemon and egg mask is recommended for use in the summer. To prepare this mask, all that is needed is chilled cucumber, lemon juice, and egg white. The preparation procedure entails the blending of the peeled cucumber. Once the cucumber becomes mushy, add the egg white, and then one tablespoon of fresh lemon juice. The mask should be left for 20 minutes before being removed.
Cabbage, Egg, And Rice Flour Mask
The cabbage, egg and rice flour mask is another effective homemade facemask for a face life. The main ingredient of this mask is cabbage. All other required ingredients are; chopped cabbage, egg white, and rice flour mask. The chopped cabbage and rice flour should be mixed first. Once the mixture is even, egg white is then added and the whole mixture blended into a smooth paste. Then the mask should be applied to the face and allowed to dry. After drying the mask is removed using cold water.
Papaya And Rice Flour Mask
All that is required for the papaya and rice flour mask is one fresh papaya and a ¼th cup of rice flour mask. The ripe papaya pulp is then mashed to create a soft paste. Once the pulp is a mushy paste, the rice flour mask is then added and the whole mixture blended. The mask should stay on for 15 minutes before it is removed by rinsing with lukewarm water.
Egg White, Honey, And Flour/Fullers Earth Mask
The Egg White face mask is recommended by doctors and beauticians alike. This face mask works well with all skin types. Although it is used mainly as a face lift mask, it also has other benefits. Apart from improving the skin’s elasticity, this face mask also removes age spots, dullness, and pigmentation.
Preparation of this mask involves the separation of the white and yellow parts of an egg. After the separation of the white and yellow parts are complete, mix all the other ingredients, i.e., honey and flour or fullers earth, with the egg white. Persons with dry skin should add glycerin into the mixture. All the ingredients should be mixed to make a paste, which is applied over the face and neck area. Allow the paste to dry and then remove with lukewarm water. People with dry skin should use flour instead of fullers earth as the latter draws oil from the skin.
