A Great Way to Stimulate Facial Skin

Homemade masks made with natural ingredients are not only simple, but great to ensure you spend some time relaxing.  When doing a mask, make sure to take the time to relax while it's on your face.  Take a nap or just lay down and rest.  Let the mask do the work for you.

For stimulating the metabolism in skin cells, this mask is prepared from cucumbers, squash and watermelon.  To prepare, mash the cucumber, squash and watermelon minus their skins.  Spread them on a gauze cloth and cover your face with it for 15-20 minutes.[1]

To achieve a beautiful, matte look, mix almond oil with 1 egg yolk.  In a separate bowl mix ground chamomile (which you can obtain from a tea bag) with a little boiling water and steep for 10 minutes.  Mix the chamomile extract with the almond oil and egg yolk.  Moisten a fresh gauze cloth and cover your face with it.  Remove after 15-20 minutes.[2]  Tips:  Let the egg stand in its shell to come closer to room temperature while you steep the chamomile.  Then mix the almond oil and egg yolk so its at it freshest just before adding the chamomile extract.

Then of course, don't forget to moisten with InfiniteAloe Skin Care!

Whether you do one or both of these steps, your skin will look & feel great!
