Here are two bonus one ingredient mask that we like to work with when we are lazing around the house.
All you need is a slice of Tomatoes or cucumber.
On days when we are feeling a little dull but don’t feel like doing anything fancy, we like to either make a paste of half a tomato or two inches of cucumber and apply this generously onto our face. You can also rub a slice directly onto your face if you don’t feel like doing the extra work. (But we Recommend the paste as it applies uniformly)
Tomatoes are excellent for dull and blemished skin. They help exfoliate and with regular use help brighten the skin !
Cucumbers help pack in some Vitamin C and also helps with irritation or inflammation. Applying cucumber regularly can also help boost your skin’s repair and prevent signs of ageing !
Until next time !
