Not everybody is blessed with a natural, flawless skin. If you read my blog posts from 2009, you would notice that I suffer from bad acne problems. After going for facials, my skin condition improved.
To cut the long story short, I have a hobby of doing facial masks from leftover food products (fruits and vegetables)- especially after making fruit juices I will use the leftover fibers.
Here's one of my DIY recipe:
Soya Bean Paste + Kampung Egg.
1) Take a sufficient amount of Soya Bean Paste. ( I obtained my paste from the soya bean maker)
2) Beat 1 egg inside and mix it well.
3) You can either put it on warm or chilled in the fridge for a soothing and cooling effect.
4) Rinse off after 20minutes.
5) Complete it with your own moisturizer or night balm.
Soya beans are rich in proteins, antioxidants and co-enzymes. It is known to have phytosterols that would help in decreasing pigmentation and redness.
Eggs, on the other hand, is one of the most primitive beauty products. Some would prefer using either the yolk or the whites, but for me, I just use both (the whole egg) because I don't like to keep leftovers. Egg yolks are known to moisturize, while egg white is believed to help reduce oily skin. The only disadvantage is the egg smell that you have to tolerate XD
After doing this mask, I find my skin is smoother =) So i will definitely do it again. While doing the mask, you have to lie down 15-20mins approximate. Hence, it will be better if you light up scented candles and soothing music to relax your body and mind.
Try it out!
