PumpkinsImagine how it feels like to look fabulous even in your golden age and let the aging disappear on your face? I guess most women would dream of that. But to keep a youthful look does require regular maintenance. One of the easiest and most practical ways is to nurture your face with facial masks on a regular basis. Today I am going to introduce a few simple beauty tips with natural ingredients to give your face a glowing look! They are easy to make and also very inexpensive. All you need is patience and persistence, eventually, all your work will pay off and your face will be your best brand.


We are enjoying the autumn right now; Mother Nature has provided us an abundant supply of pumpkins. Pumpkins are rich in vitamin A and vitamin C, and they are perfect nutrients for facial masks.


  • Pumpkins (peeled, cooked): 3 tbsps.
  • Honey: 2 tbsps.
  • Milk (whole fat): 2 tbsps.


Mix all the ingredients in a bowl until the texture is smooth, then spread it on your face and leave it for about 15-20 minutes, wash your face and massage your face with your favorite facial cream for a few minutes, and that is it.

Benefits: this facial mask can help shrink the pores on your face especially those around the nose area. It also helps tighten your facial skin and improve your skin complexion.


As we all know that honey is a wonderful ingredient for facial masks, especially for the lips.


  • Honey: 1 tbsp.
  • Sugar: 1 tbsp.
  • Olive oil: 1 tbsp.


Mix all the ingredients well in a small bowl, use your finger to dip the mixture, and massage your lips in a circular fashion for a few minutes.

Benefits: This is a very effective lip moisturizer especially when the weather is dry. With a few treatments, you will notice that your lips are full and smooth, wouldn’t it look sexy?


If you are a tea lover, don’t throw away your tea bags after you enjoyed the tea. You can put them on your eyes and close your eyes to rest for 10-15 minutes, and then remove the tea bags. They can instantly tighten the skin around your eyes to reduce the puffy eyes. Your eyes will be moist and very soothing as well due to the water and anti-oxidant contents in the tea bags, green tea works the best.

As computers become essential to our modern life, today our environment is filled with electromagnetic radiation from electronic devices such as mobile devices and computers, which not only affects our health but also damages our skin. Here is a great advantage of green tea that you may not be aware of. You can soak the green tea bags in the water and use them to rinse your face after you wash your face with a facial cleanser. It will help eliminate the harmful radiation to your skin.


RiceIf you are a rice lover, this recipe is perfect for you. Choose the soft rice at a warm temperature and wrap 3-4 tbsps. of freshly cooked rice in a cotton cloth like a small ball. Wash your face first, then massage your whole face with this rice ball. Believe it or not, it can work as a pore cleanser and extracts all the dirty stuff and excessive oil on your face. As you massage your face, you will notice the rice ball becomes greasy and dirty, but your face is getting cleaner and smoother. After the treatment, rinse your face well, your face will feel fresh and moist. You can perform this cleansing procedure once a week to detoxify your face on a regular basis.

Vitamin E

When it comes to anti-aging, Vitamin E can do the tricks in many ways. Let’s explore a few here.

1. Fades the acne scars and pigments naturally.

Fades the acne scars and pigments naturallyWash your face first, then massage the dark spots or the acne scars with a tiny amount of vitamin E oil. If you feel that vitamin E oil is sticky, you can use a less amount and only apply it at night and wash it away in the morning. You can also apply it twice a day if you want to speed up the healing. Vitamin E oil is a natural moisturizer; it will keep your skin smooth and moist if you apply it to your face regularly.

2. Reduces the wrinkles on your lips.

Reduces the wrinkles on your lipsFirst, prepare a small clean container, put one tsp. of olive oil and one tsp. of honey in it, then add a few drops of vitamin E oil and mix them well.

Your face will look young and ageless if you apply this facial mask on a regular basis. Believe it or not, it works wonders to reduce and prevent wrinkles.

3. Promotes healthy and shiny hair.

It is actually very simple, all you need is to add a few drops of vitamin E oil in your shampoo when you wash your hair, also add a few drops of vitamin E oil in your hair conditioner when you apply it to your hair. Only these two steps will give your hair a healthy and gorgeous look!

4. Reduces wrinkles around the eyes.

Reduces wrinkles around the eyesAs we all know that your eyes spell the secret of your age. When we age, the annoying wrinkles around the eyes constantly remind us that we need to do some self-care around the eyes. Well, vitamin E oil can be one of the cheapest but most effective eye serums that can reduce wrinkles. If the skin around your eyes is sensitive, you can dilute the concentration of the vitamin E oil with some water before applying it around your eyes. A few minutes of gentle massage can help increase the absorption after you apply it. With persistence, the youthful look around your eyes is not far ahead to reach.

If you are bothered by puffy eyes, facial masks or tea bags are not permanent solutions. The best way is to find out the causes of the puffy eyes and prevent the puffy eyes from the very beginning. Here are some simple tips to prevent and treat puffy eyes effectively.

Mother Nature has offered us an ample supply of ingredients when it comes to beauty. You can make all kinds of facial masks from the fruits to the clay. For example, the small seeds in the berries are excellent face scrubs to exfoliate your skin without potential damage. All you need is a blender to blend your favorite fruits together and give a delicious treatment to your face. You can use one fruit or mix a few fruits together, blend them with yogurt or honey or both, to be creative and try a few different formulas to find out which one your face appreciates the most and go from there.

One of my favorite facial masks is the banana yogurt mask. It is super easy to make. Here are the ingredients:

  • Banana (peeled, mashed): 2 tbsps.
  • Yogurt (whole fat, natural): ¼ cup
  • Honey: ½ tsp

ProcedureProcedure: choose a ripe banana and mash it well, then scoop 2 tbsps. of the mashed banana in a small bowl, add a quarter cup of whole fat and unsweetened natural yogurt and half a tsp. of honey to it, mix them well. Now wash your face and spread the mixture on your face, the leftover will be a treat for your mouth. Just lie down and close your eyes to relax for 15-20 minutes, then wash it off. You face will be very smooth and moist after this. If you apply this facial mask on a weekly basis, you will notice that the skin on your face will be tightened and small wrinkles will fade away. This is one of the best masks for every skin type.

Papaya is also one of my favorite ingredients for the facial masks, papaya actually has many amazing healing benefits that you may not aware of, including reducing menstruation related cramps and comforting the stomach.

With regular care for your face with these natural and nutritious masks, your face will not only look fruity but you will also feel great when you look at yourself in front of a mirror. Best of all, they are very inexpensive and save you lots of money on those expensive cosmetics that may actually do more harm than good to your skins.

Here is the shocking fact that you may not aware of. According to many studies, most cosmetics are petroleum based, which are called xenohormones, they not only affect your hormone balances but also introduce more toxins to your body. The question is: Are you sacrificing your health for the beauty?
