3 More Homemade Face Masks That Will Make You Glow
Why it works: Tomatoes contain lycopene, which studies say helps improve collagen production and fights skin-damaging free radicals.
1/3 cup cornmeal
1 cup tomatoes, peeled and crushed
1 egg white
1 teaspoon honey
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
Directions: Combine all ingredients into a paste. Apply to clean skin and leave on for ten to fifteen minutes. Rinse off the mask and follow with a hydrating gel, if needed.
Why it works: Brown rice flour soaks up excess oil, while the healthy fats in avocado balance oil production, so your skin doesn't go into overdrive to replace lost moisture.
1 tablespoon brown rice flour
1 tablespoon fresh apple juice
Directions: Mash the avocado with a fork in a small bowl. Sprinkle in rice flour, combining until you make a paste. Stir in apple juice. Apply mask and allow to dry. Rinse off with warm water.
Why it works: Greek yogurt contains the probioticLactobacillus, which may kick inflammation and acne to the curb. It's also loaded with lactic acid, an alpha-hydroxy that gently exfoliates skin.
3 tablespoons Greek yogurt
1 probiotic capsule (optional)
Directions: Split open the probiotic capsule (if you have one) and mix it with the Greek yogurt in a small bowl. Apply the mixture to your face with a cotton ball. Wash off with warm water after 10 minutes. Pat dry.
