SUMMER MASKS AND SCRUBS
Summer has come, which means that our skin needs even more scrupulous care, nutrition and protection. The sun’s rays emit ultraviolet light, which gives not only a beautiful, even tan, but also burns and pigmentation. The sun and sea water dry up the face, and by the end of the vacation, you can find clear expression lines. This can and should be fought, especially since in the summer season “healers” grow right in the country, and you can take natural honey as a basis for light masks and scrubs.
After sun masks
A honey mint mask can help treat skin irritation after sunburn. For her, you need to pour a glass of boiling water over 2 tsp. mint herbs, cool, add 1 tbsp. honey and apply a cool mixture on the face for 20 minutes, and then apply a creamier cream.
Honey berry mask with cream tones the skin, smoothes wrinkles and gives softness. Any berries are useful: strawberries, strawberries, sweet cherries. Use a blender to puree the sweet pulp, add equal parts cream and honey, and massage gently onto face and neck. Cream can be replaced with fatty homemade sour cream.
Another interesting combination of honey, berries and dairy products for skin nutrition. Grind a handful of berries (wild strawberries, strawberries, raspberries) in mashed potatoes, add 1 tbsp. homemade cottage cheese, 1 tsp. honey and a few drops of olive or linseed oil. Mix everything, wash off after 20 minutes.
As for scrubs, in the summer it is not recommended to be zealous with this procedure and to carry it out more often than once a week – during this period the skin is already dehydrated, and the scrubs additionally draw moisture out of it. This is especially true for tanned skin. For her, ordinary home scrubs with a base of crushed seeds or sea salt are not suitable, lighter options are needed. For example, the same drupe puree mixed with thick or candied honey will have a good cleansing effect.
One of the best summer scrubs, providing complex cleansing, moisturizing and toning properties, is made from milk, honey and dry oatmeal. They are mixed in equal parts, applied to the face and massaged for 5 minutes, and then left to dry for another 15.
Tropical fruits carry vitamins for our skin, and you can try different combinations of them with honey to make a scrub. For example, mash ripe kiwi with a fork and add 1 tsp. honey. Small kiwi seeds will have a scrubbing effect, but if it wasn’t enough, add a little brown sugar to the mask.
