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.
