If there’s one season where you need to up your skin care game, it’s summer. Couple the heat with public transit to office, field work and daily chores, and you have the perfect recipe for a skin disaster. What, then, can be better than home-made face packs to keep them pores tight and the skin clean. Here are some face packs to the rescue:

This one to tighten the annoying pores:

🌑GET RID OF BLACKHEADS INSTANTLY!👋🏽 This is NOT a painful peel off mask.. This mask will literally "squeeze" your blackheads out instantly and painlessly! I only applied this onto my nose area where I get blackheads, but this mask is so incredible all over your entire face too! ALL YOU NEED:👇🏽 ✅YEAST (I used brewers but bakers works too!) ✅COCONUT MILK (you can use any milk.. cows milk, almond, goat, cashew, soy etc.. u can even use WATER but i like how hydrating coconut milk is!) 🥐Mix the two until you get a paste.. you only need a few drops of milk 👃🏾Apply to your nose (or all over your face if u want) 💨Let it dry completely 💦Wash off with lukewarm water in circular motions and the blackheads will POP OUT!! You will "feel it cominggggg" 😂😂😂 🌚I had a blackhead on my nose that was bugging meeeee so bad and this popped it out so quick!! (the other dot on my nose is a freckle.. not a blackhead) 👶🏾Your skin will feel SO soft/smooth and buttery as soon as u wash it off! This isnt just great for blackheads its great at brightening ur skin, hydrating, anti-aging, tightening and acne killing!! 👌🏾Do this as often as you like! 1-2 times a week will give you INCREDIBLE results!! ❤WHY THIS WORKS: Yeast is used in a LOT of expensive skincare products from SKII, REN, etc because of the amazing natural benefits it has! its high in amino acids, protein, minerals, antioxidants and vitamins which help to smooth your skin, soften it to remove blackheads and brighten and hydrate!! If you have wrinkles, apply this mask to your entire face and youll notice tighter more firm skin! Coconut milk is great because its an anti-bacterial so its gonna prevent future blackheads its also extremely moisturizing (which aids in softening the blackhead) and its soothing to the skin Disclaimer: Test patch first Also disclaimer: You do not need to bounce the ingredients off your elbow in order for this to work. I was feeling extra af so #DIYBAE came out to play💃🏽👇🏽👇🏽TAG A FRIEND WHO HATES BLACKHEADS AS MUCH AS YOU DO! and LIKE this video for more DIY skincare!👍🏾👍🏾👍🏾 ILYfam!

To keep acne at bay:

1️⃣ Mask- All you need is one egg white and couple drops of lemon 🍋 2️⃣Mask- All you need is egg yolk and couple of drops tea tree oil Egg white is great for tightening and toning skin. It works wonders for greasy skin by shrinking large pores on the skin surface. Large pores are also potential breeding grounds for bacteria that cause bulbous zits and cysts, which means pore-tightening egg white can help reduce acne. Egg white contains an ingredient known as lysozyme, an enzyme that kills acne-causing bacteria by digesting their cell walls. Egg-yolk face masks work wonders for people with dry or flaky skin. The nutrients in egg yolks work to hydrate, nourish, and moisturize dull skin. One of the most common uses for tea tree oil today is in skin care products, as it’s considered one of the most effective home remedies for acne. #sararoxanne #facemask #eggmask #skin #skincareroutine #multimasking #wakeupandmakeup #howtomakeup #slave2beauty #hairmakeupdiary #makeupfeed #makeupclips #makeupvideoss #allmodernmakeup #howtomakeup #makeupfanatic1 #makeupslaves #talkthatmakeup #makeupmafia #makeupartistsworldwide #videosfashions #fashionarttut #make4glam #xmakeuptutsx #MaquillajesVideos @xmakeuptutsx @allmodernmakeup @viral.fashions @styleartists @fashionvideo.s @girlies @videosbeauty @makeuptutorialsx0x @videoscreatives @bestbeautyclips @hudabeauty #hudabeauty #anastasiabeverlyhills @makeup.feed @beautyandhairdiaries @hypnaughty.makeup @hypnaughtypower

To get glowing skin:

Throwback GLOWING SKIN WHEAT GRASS FACIAL 🍁 organic wheat grass 🍁 1 Tbsp RAW organic honey ---------------------------------------------------- 🍂 contains antioxidants to prevent free radical damage 🍂 Brightens skin 🍂 freshly juiced wheatgrass can aid in fighting harmful bacteria 🍂 contains more vitamin A and C than oranges 😱 🍂 IT WILL SLOW DOWN THE AGING PROCESS!!! 🙌🙌😱🌱🌱 ---------------------------------------------------- When applied directly on to the face the raw honey will warm up to your skin temperature as your skin will look super smooth and glassy as I have demonstrated in the video. Due to the heat of your body the honey might run down your chin and jaw line as you can see in the video, making it a bit messy. However, given the factor it is THE BEST KEPT ANCIENT EGYPTIAN SECRET I am willing to lather myself in all the mess it brings lol 😂😂 I drink wheat grass shot since it offers optimum health care benefits and usually do this facial during fall since my skin tends to get a bit dry due to weather changes. I applied black pore cleanser on my nose and left it on since I had serious case of blackheads 🎼song : single and sexy vals hubby . . . PRECAUTIONS: As with any skin care do patch test first _______________________________________________________ #hypnaughtymakeup #hypnaughtypower #fakeupfix #peachyqueenblog #eyeblogbeauty #hairmakeupdiary #makeupfeed #makeupclips #stylevideo #1minutemakeup #fakeupfix #allmodernmakeup #howtomakeup #glamvids #makeupvideos #melformakeup #makeupfanatic1 #makeupslaves #makeupgeek #hudabeauty #makeuptutorialsx0x #rochellewick #makeupartistsworldwide #brian_champagne #fcmakeup #hairmakeupdiary #makeupholic_moon #wakeupandmakeup @allmodernmakeup @wakeupandmakeup @brian_champagne

To exfoliate when the skin looks dull:

Not Monday but Tuesday is the new Sunday! At least that's what I'm trying to convince myself 🙆🏻. I know I'm late for Mask Sunday 🙈. ------------------- Pumpkin & Ginger mask 🎃 Pumpkins are a great source of Vitamin A Vitamin A, is simply retinol, which is well known for boosting collagen production and reducing wrinkles. I added Ginger to the mask which is a good source of Vitamin C, which also helps to clarify the skin and boost collagen. The lactic acid in the yogurt will help slough dead skin from the surface. Finally I added sugar for some extra exfoliating 👅. ---- Ingredients: * 3 small pieces of pumpkin * 1 tbs of powder Ginger * 1 tbs yogurt * 1 tbs sugar ---- Leave the mask on for 10 minutes than wash it of. ---- Tips: 1. If you have a food processer/ blender use that. You will get a smoother consistency. 2. Do a patch test first. If you have sensitive skin skip the ginger. 3. Always Use a moisturizer with spf to protect your skin. @homesquatvideos #diyremedies #diy #remedies by @marjam_el
