It is sad to admit it, but every day, looking at my own reflection, I notice more and more wrinkles on my face. Many factors affect their appearance – from age changes and bad habits, to ecology and frequent stressful situations. But I, like many other women, want to keep the skin elasticity, its youthfulness longer.
In search of effective means, I rummaged through a mountain of women’s magazines that I had acquired in my youth. Some seemed pretty simple to use. Having tried several of them, I chose the ones I liked. I hasten to share with readers Alimero.
I have no particular problems with the skin of the face, so I selected recipes for the normal type (although they also suit the ladies who have dry skin). But first, a few basic rules. Namely:
– apply any mask on clean (mandatory) skin and only from 11 to 15 hours
– all masks that have a tightening effect, leave on the face 10-20 minutes, not longer
– apply the mask best light touch, without rubbing it into the skin
– apply a mask, lie down and relax
– it is recommended to wash off the mask with water of medium temperature, and after it apply any makeup to the face, except moisturizers, only after a couple of hours
To prepare it, I needed liquid honey and aloe leaf. I melted one spoon of honey, squeezed two spoons of juice out of aloe and mixed everything well. After ten minutes of rest, I washed it off with clean water. If you are allergic to honey, then it is quite possible to apply only aloe (wipe the skin with juice or apply a slurry of it as a mask).
The basis of this mask is the potato. I boiled a medium-sized tuber in the peel, cooled, peeled and crushed, added a spoon (table) of milk, and mixed the same spoon of sour cream. The mask has added a teaspoon of glycerin and olive (you can any other) oil. Hold the mask for 15 minutes.
To make this mask, I took a brewer’s yeast (pharmaceutical) and a couple of tablespoons of milk. I crushed the yeast and mixed it with milk (milk should be added gradually so that the mass does not turn out to be too liquid). Hold it for 20 minutes. The owners of oily skin can also use this mask, if fresh milk is replaced with kefir.
I applied a homogeneous mixture of egg whipped protein and 8 drops of lemon juice to the skin in two doses. The first layer dried for 7 minutes, and only after that, I applied the second layer. Rested for fifteen minutes, washed away.
I have tried this tool only once. I do not know how effective it is against wrinkles, but the skin is noticeably prettier after the first procedure.
For the preparation of this mask, I needed flax seeds (bought at a pharmacy). I poured a tablespoon of seeds with half a glass of water, boiled for 15 minutes, strained. When the broth was cold, I added a spoonful of olive oil. This mask remained on the skin longer than the rest – for half an hour.
It is recommended to make any masks once a week, not more often, and also to alternate them so that the skin does not get used and the effect does not weaken. True, I tried all five masks for the entire four weeks, but now I like my reflection much more.
And finally, advice: in order to maintain skin elasticity, you can add a dozen drops of psyllium leaf juice to your favorite cream.
