Natural Homemade Facial Mask

Here's a natural and easy to make facial mask. It can be used for any skin types even sensitive skin. It cleans, moisturizes, softens and whitens your skin. It also helps dry pimples.

You only need two inqredients usually available in the pantry: Evaporated milk (or any liquid milk) and calamansi, the Philippine lime (or lemon or lime).
  • In a small bowl, squeeze the juice of 1 regular size calamansi (approximately 1 tablespoon). Remove the seeds.
  • Add 4 tablespoons of milk.
  • Mix the two together until it forms a curdling, rich, creamy texture. Note: You may experiment on the calamansi and milk proportion depending on how much acidity you want in the mixture.
  • Now that tha facial mask is ready, make sure that your face is clean. Rinse your face with water then dry it.
  • Clean your hands and use your fingers to apply the mixture on your face and neck. Make sure to avoid the eyes.
  • Leave the mask for about 5 to 10 minutes or until it is completely dry. Your face will feel tighter as the mask dries up.
  • To remove the mask, rinse your face and neck with plain, warm water. Dry off.

Now feel and see the difference!

You can do this once a week or once a month.
I first tried this when I was in high school and I still use this up to know although not as frequent anymore. My face has remained smooth and soft.

Natural Whitening Deodorant

For dark underarms, you can use alum (tawas). It also removes or prevents body odor. There are several ways of using or applying it and all are effective.

If you want a dry underarm deodorant, you can apply powdered alum directly to it.
If you want it in liquid form, you can follow either of the following mixture:
-- Use 1 Whole alum pound to small pieces (w/ small chunks not powdered). Add 1 bottle of Ginebra San Miguel (Gin). Add several drops (or more if needed) of your favorite perfume or cologne.
-- Or 1 teaspoon powdered alum, 1 cup water and a few drops of your favorite perfume or cologne.
To use the liguid mixture, you can either use a spray/spritzer or cotton balls. You can actually use this for the whole body especially if you perspire a lot. It really prevents body odor and whitens your skin.

You can buy alum or tawas from the grocery, drug store or market.

I had been using this for the longest time since I have sensitive underarm skin. My underarm gets dark and a couple of times develeped bumps (due to blocked pores) when I use other deodorants.

Try this and see its great effect.

Eskinol Facial Cleaner

I had been using Eskinol Facial Cleanser for a long time now. I started using it when I was in high school. I had been using it daily not just for the face but for the whole body.

There are many variants but I specifically use Eskinol Natural Calamansi: "Enriched with the natural skin whitening and cleaning properties of real calamansi. It also has vitamin C which keeps skin healthy."

It really removes dirt and makes skin tone even - lightens blemishes, scars. It is like a toner and leaves skin smooth, refreshed and clean.

You can order Eskinol Natural Calamansi Facial Cleanser and other personal care items online, from, the World's Filipina Personal Care Products Store.
