You already know the best home masks for dry and damaged hair and the best home masks for hair growth. It’s time to take care of your skin! Introducing the best homemade face masks. Among the fans of the “natural” is the writer and model Alla Lagutina. We asked her to share with us her secrets of Siberian beauty recipes and her personal skin care tips.
VOICE home mask expert: “I was born and raised in Siberia. In those days, there was not such a variety of face masks as there are now. Therefore, home care products were more of a forced measure than a trend to use only natural ingredients. However, even today, many prefer masks made by hand, because only in this case you can be 100% sure of their composition and quality. The main thing that must be taken into account in this case is the absence of an allergy to certain natural components. I will share with you the secrets of effective homemade face masks from my childhood, as well as new recipes from which I see real results.
So, here are the best homemade masks for the face and décolleté. Checked — they work!
This is one of the best cleansing homemade face masks my mom told me about. Even during her youth, she struggled with skin imperfections with the unique cleansing and scrubbing properties of baking soda. The course of application of such a mask is from one to three months.
Mix 1 teaspoon of ordinary soda and warm honey to make a plastic mass
Hold on face for 20 minutes
Rinse with water
If you want to add a skin lightening effect, you can add one or two drops of fresh lemon juice to the mass before use. Please note that this mask is not suitable for those who are allergic to honey. It should also be used with caution by owners of thin, dry and sensitive skin. But for those who have oily skin, this homemade mask will be a real salvation.
The mask cleans and mattifies the skin
Removes excess fat
Relieves acne and pimples
Promotes cell regeneration and rejuvenation
Important! Honey for the preparation of this effective homemade face mask should be exactly warm! When heated above 45 ° C, it will lose its beneficial properties, moreover, it will become carcinogenic.
Chicken egg mask
Another recipe from my Siberian past. This cleansing homemade face mask perfectly replaces the best modern cleansing film masks, and the effect of it is noticeable after the first application.
Crack the egg carefully and separate the white from the yolk
Apply the protein to the entire face, avoiding the eye area with the most delicate skin.
Hold for 15-20 minutes
Wash off with cool water
Since the protein has astringent properties, this remedy is not suitable for women who have dry or irritated skin.
This homemade mask removes oily sheen
Shrinks enlarged pores
Helps get rid of comedones
Leaves skin firm, lifted & velvety soft
Homemade protein mask looks like a commercially made mask-film
Moisturizing halva mask
Of the new masks, I can advise an excellent remedy from halva. It sounds strange, but everything is explained simply: this oriental sweet contains a large amount of vegetable fats, food acids, proteins, glucose, mineral salts, vitamins and microelements necessary for the skin. Such a rich composition makes halva not only tasty, but also healthy for the skin — it makes an excellent homemade anti-aging face mask with an incredible effect.
Rub a small piece of halva
Add some water and stir until a paste is formed
Apply the product with a special brush and keep it on your face for at least 30 minutes
Rinse with room temperature water
The mask should be used with caution for girls with oily skin and should not be used for those who are allergic to peanuts and other nuts.
The mask promotes cell regeneration
Rejuvenates the skin and protects it from premature aging
Well moisturizes the skin and eliminates peeling
Halva mask is an unusual home remedy! Oriental sweetness helps keep skin youthful
Another plus of natural cosmetics is that even the best face masks at home are easy to prepare at home. You can choose any product at a convenient time and make a rejuvenating composition for all skin types and get rid of many problems. For acne, for example, an excellent remedy is a toothpaste mask.
Apply any toothpaste in an even thin layer on your face
Leave for three minutes
Rinse with warm water and a sponge and pat your face dry with a towel
When applied, it does not matter at all whether to apply the paste on wet or dry. The main thing is to cleanse the skin well and avoid getting the product on the area around the eyes.
Important! The product included in the top homemade face masks is not suitable for injured, dehydrated, dry and sensitive skin. Also, the remedy is prohibited if you may experience allergic reactions to the components of the toothpaste. The only exception for owners of sensitive skin is the moment when you need to dry the pimple locally. Then you can apply toothpaste to the inflammation with a cotton swab and wait until it dries completely, and then rinse with water. It is also better for potential allergy sufferers to choose plain white paste without additives or tooth powder, diluting it with water.
The mask revitalizes the skin and restores an even complexion
Purifies and restores
Effectively fights acne
Removes black dots
Makes the face look young and fit
Important! You can use this effective homemade face mask no more than 1 time per week. You can enhance the cleansing effect if, after applying the paste, gently massage your face with a soft brush or a konjac sponge.
Now it’s the turn of one of the most popular and beloved by many masks — yeast. This effective homemade facelift mask is at the top of many beauties for its miraculous properties. Yeast is rich in vitamins, micro and macro elements, organic acids, polysaccharides and lipids. One of the best homemade anti-aging face masks is suitable for all skin types, but it has an absolutely magical effect in the presence of acne, comedones, in case of dryness and dehydration, with a decrease in skin elasticity and turgor.
Mix 10 grams of yeast with kefir or yogurt until a dense slurry is formed

This miraculous mask provides deep cleansing from the very first use.

Slows down the aging process

Perfectly smoothes wrinkles.
And my personal advice for everyone: never smile until you wash the mask off your skin. All mimic muscles of the face must be completely motionless, otherwise you risk only deepening wrinkles. Better lie down and relax. By the way, this advice is relevant in any case, no matter which of the best homemade face masks you choose. All beauty!
Beer mask for combination skin
Beer is an ingredient that can be used in masks for all skin types. But it is especially good in the fight against increased fat content and pimples. Unlike aggressive acids and antimicrobial ingredients that are part of ready-made acne products, homemade beer face masks are absolutely safe — they do not dry out the skin and make it smooth and even. In this best homemade face mask recipe, we suggest pairing beer with oatmeal, which has cleansing, anti-inflammatory, and gentle exfoliating properties.

Lovers of homemade masks «with experience» are advised not to water the plant for two weeks before collecting the juice (do not worry, everything will be fine with aloe!), And before you start mixing the mask, hold the leaves in the refrigerator.
Mix 1 tablespoon of aloe juice and 1 tablespoon of honey
Apply to cleansed face, if desired, also on the neck and décolleté.
