When and how to use masks
Skin is an indicator not only of age, but also of the internal state of the body. Most diseases, hormonal imbalances, negative psycho-emotional atmosphere have a detrimental effect on the appearance of the skin. Smoking, excessive exposure to ultraviolet light, lack of rest and sleep is reflected on the face by wrinkles, flabbiness.

Preparation of the skin for the cosmetic procedure is essential. In order for natural ingredients to maximize their positive effect, the mask must be applied to previously cleansed skin. For this purpose, you can use special cleansers, lotions or tonics.
Skin type plays a leading role in the selection of mask components. For skin prone to dryness, it is better to use fatty oils, crushed oatmeal. Masks based on gelatin and yeast are suitable for oily and porous skin. Masks with honey, fruit, kefir and sour cream are equally well perceived by any skin type.
Using masks at home has several advantages. Natural ingredients for the recipe are selected independently. There are no preservatives, stabilizers, synthetic substances in the masks. All recipe ingredients are available and inexpensive.
Gelatin for rejuvenation
The best homemade wrinkle correction masks are made with gelatin. The reason for this is the presence of collagen in the gelatin structure. Moreover, small molecules of "gelatinous" collagen are more easily and quickly perceived by the skin, in contrast to large structures from ready-made cosmetics. The loss of collagen by the skin leads to the formation of wrinkles.
For masks, gelatin is preliminarily dissolved in water (juice, milk) and heated. In the cooled solution, you can add puree from berries, fruits, as well as oat flour, activated carbon. Gelatin quickly reduces wrinkles, tightens pores, which improves skin condition.
Masks with honey
Beekeeping products are rich in biologically active substances that optimize metabolic processes at the cellular level. That is why masks with honey are popular. This product is ideal for eliminating age-related changes.
Along with honey, milk, kefir or sour cream, a chicken egg, lemon, fruit are added to the masks. It all depends on the type of skin and the absence of allergies to a particular component.
Turmeric for beauty
Turmeric masks have the ability to improve blood circulation through a warming effect. The mixture, to which the turmeric powder is added, is applied only in the evening so that slight redness disappears until the morning. Turmeric contains important vitamins and minerals that have a positive effect on the rejuvenation process.
Turmeric powder improves the complexion, therefore it is suitable for pale skin with a gray tint. Turmeric often leaves marks on the face that can be easily removed with kefir, lemon juice or oatmeal.
Fatty oils are popular ingredients in rejuvenation masks. Almond, peach, grape seed oil, jojoba perfectly nourish aging and dry skin. All oils contain vitamins A and E, which are essential for healthy skin.
Homemade cosmetics with amaranth oil are indispensable for the rejuvenation procedure. In addition to vitamins, it contains significant amounts of squalene (the basic component of the skin). Thanks to squalene, the skin absorbs oxygen well, remains hydrated, and inhibits the action of free radicals. Conditions that prevent aging are created.
