Maintaining a clean face that is free of impurities is important to make our skin look beautiful and in perfect condition. But beyond having a daily cleansing routine, it is important to apply other treatments that help us get deeper and more efficient effects. Fortunately for doing this is not necessary to resort to a beautician, some natural allies can bring the best results, on OneHowTo.com we explain how to make cleansing face masks at home to make your face look beautiful day after day.

Steps to follow:
1

Egg white, oatmeal and honey mask

These three ingredients are perfect for a cleansing face mask because the egg white will help tighten the skin and achieve a natural lifting effect, honey is a potent antibacterial that eliminates impurities and provides antioxidants, while oats help exfoliate the skin naturally, removing dead cells.

Mix an egg white, a spoonful of oatmeal powder and a teaspoon of honey. Make a paste and apply to your clean face. Leave on for 20 minutes and then remove with warm water so you can enjoy a clean and perfect face. You can apply this mask once a week.

Yoghurt, cucumber and parsley mask

An excellent homemade cleansing mask that also leaves your face feeling fresh is one made from yoghurt, cucumber and parsley. Grate or crush half a cucumber, add a tablespoon of thinly chopped fresh parsley and sugar free non-fat yoghurt.

Apply this mixture on your face and leave on for 20 minutes. Upon removal you will notice your skin is light, fresh and hydrated.

Honey and lemon mask

If besides needing a facial, you want to control oil on your skin, the honey and lemon face mask is perfect for you. Just remember that if you have dry skin you should not use this option.

Mix a generous tablespoon of honey and a tablespoon of lemon juice. Applied to the face for 20 minutes and then remove with warm water, you'll see your face is clean and oil free.

Clay and cucumber water mask

If you are looking for a natural perfect alternative to cleanse your skin, balance it and control oil, green clay is your best ally. Buy a pack of green clay at any health food store and you'll have enough material to make dozens of masks.

Now to make this cleansing mask, take half a cucumber cut into thick slices and let stand in two fingers of mineral water for at least 30 minutes. During that time the cucumber will lose its properties in the water, and then add the clay to the liquid to form a paste. Note that you should make the mixture in a plastic or wooden container and always use a wooden spoon, as metal cancels the properties of the clay.

Apply for 15 minutes, remove with warm water and enjoy a clean, exfoliated and fresh face.
