Moisturizing and Brightening Face Mask
Would you like a brighter and moisturized complexion? We all do. Here is a wonderful face mask that you can make at home and use once or twice a week to get that glowing complexion that we all love.
Bananas: Not only wonderful to eat but they can help with dry skin due to their vitamin B-6 and potassium content. Vitamin A can reduce inflammation in the skin helping to reduce acne and pimples. Bananas are also rich in antioxidants, which help to fight free radicals in the body and can help protect your skin from free radical damage.
Yoghurt: Calcium helps to restore healthy and hydrated skin. Lactic acid contains humectants that attract moisture from the air for your skin to absorb below the skin’s surface and is a power-house for your skin with it's ability to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Zinc (and the Lactic Acid) help to exfoliate and remove dead skin cells revealing a beautiful glow. Yogurt also contains probiotics which help to bring down inflammation and any existing pimples you may have.
Egg White: The proteins in an egg white face mask may function as humectants, the proteins attract moisture from the air for your skin to absorb which leads to better hydrated skin. The extra hydration in your skin leads to a temporary plumping of your skin which softens fine lines and wrinkles. Keep in mind that this temporary and as soon as the hydration goes down, your fine lines and wrinkles will return. The protein lysozyme is an antibacterial protein that breaks down specific bacteria which causes acne making egg whites a wonderful mask even on it's own.
1 Egg White
1 Table Spoon of Plain Yoghurt
Mash everything together and apply to a dry face. Leave on for 15 minutes then remove with warm water. Pat your face dry and continue with your face moisturizing routine. Enjoy!

Since the plumping effect of this mask is temporary it is the perfect mask to use just prior to those events where you want to have your face really glowing!! I use this mask twice a week and love the exfoliating effect that it has, leaving me with a rosy glow.
Have a delightful day!
