If you’re worried about sagging skin as you age, this DIY facelift is a quick and simple way to get the youth back in your face – all without a trip to the doctor! Using everyday ingredients, each of these at-home facial treatments will smooth, tighten and plump up your face to give you the youthful look that some people pay thousands for.
Step 1: Smoothing Exfoliator
1 tbsp brown sugar
1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
Mix together the brown sugar and olive oil to create a paste. Apply to face and massage for a few minutes. Rinse off with warm water. The brown sugar will smooth out skin while the olive oil moisturizes.
Step 2: Tightening Toner
1 cup rose water
1 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp witch hazel
5 drops almond essential oil
Combine the ingredients together and mix well. Dab the mixture your face with a cotton ball and wait for it to dry. Both the witch hazel and rosewater are astringents, which tighten and shrink pores. The almond oil has antioxidants that help skin with building new cells.
Step 3: Plumping Moisturizing Facial Mask
2 tbsp of your favorite moisturiser
1 egg white
2 pinches turmeric
1 tsp Manuka honey
Mix the moisturiser, egg white, turmeric and honey together to make a paste. Apply to the face evenly, avoiding the eyes, and leave the mask on for 20 minutes. Rinse with warm water. The egg white tightens, while the turmeric and honey stimulates the skin and plumps it up, helping to build collagen to create a smoother look.
