Homemade Butter Face Mask Recipes

 

 

By Tiffany Moore

 

Having beautiful skin that looks perpetually youthful and deeply radiant is one trend that will never go out of style. Every woman has her own little beauty secret and a slew of skin care tips to enhance skin suppleness and keep it wrinkle free for as long as possible.

 

 

One commonly traveled route taken by many beauty enthusiasts to reach their dream of “perfect skin” is to prowl the skincare aisle every month for the latest hi-tech and often high cost quick solutions. But if you are less than willing to blow hundreds of dollars on unthinkably expensive lotions and serums, or spa facials, then these will come to your rescue – brilliantly simple wrinkle-stopping homemade butter face mask recipes that are a real delight for both your skin and wallet.

 

 

You may have probably heard of high profile celebrities like Jennifer Lopez, Jessica Alba and Sarah Michelle Gellar who attribute their amazingly satiny smooth skin to body butters such as shea, mango, cocoa and kukui nut. But do you know that this humble kitchen ingredient – butter – you have in your refrigerator also offers a multitude of remarkable skin-conditioning benefits? Using butter on face regularly will leave it intensely hydrated and glowing beautifully with vitality as it decreases skin roughness. Plus butter helps diminish appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and believe it or not, correct skin pigmentation issues as well. Here’s why...

 

 

Butter contains boatloads of potent antioxidants Vitamin A and E, which are essential for maintaing healthy skin and hair. If your skin is deficient in Vitamin A, it can become dry, rough and flaky among other problems. Vitamin E not only prevents free radical damage that causes skin discolorations such as freckles and age spots, it is also a super effective hydrating agent to help skin replenish lost mositure due to various factors like aging, poorly balanced diet and enviromental damage. As such, it is especially helpful for mositure-hungry mature skin that is dry and leathery in appearance. The result is visibly plumper, clearer and dewy skin.

 

 

With that being said, it’s almost impossible to have younger-looking skin if you are not diligent about mositurizing and not careful with what you eat.

 

 

The best time to moisturize your face is when it is scrubbed clean or right after a shower while your skin is still damp. Exfoliation removes dead skin cells on the surface to help skin better absorb the moisturizer while showering in warm water helps open your pores to allow moisturizers to soak in and do their magic.

 

 

An antioxidant-rich diet that includes loads of Vitamin C-packed leafy greens such as kale and spinanch, along with plenty of brightly colored fruits like orange, strawberry and blueberry, will help build collagen for firmer and more elastic skin.

 

 

Very importanly, ditch slutty brownies and sinful chocolates. The reason is sugar destroys skin cells and breaks down collagen and elastin, which are fibrous proteins that lend strength and elasticity to your skin, giving it its youthful appearance.

 

 

 

Butter Face Mask Recipes

 

These DIY butter face masks, while being all natural, are good for all skin types. You can even make them 100 percent organic, if you prefer.

 

 

 

Butter and Strawberry Face Mask

 

The natural alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs) in strawberry has strong anti-aging and anti-wrinkle properties that breakdown dead skin cells buildup to unclog pores. It also helps to get rid of blemishes and acne.

 

 

Egg yolk will moisturize dry skin and reduce wrinkles while the cucumber acts as a natural skin tonic to keep your skin soft and supple. It’s also great for reducing puffiness in the face. Lemon is an effective astringent to clear blackheads on oily skin.

Butter and Mango Face Mask

 

A moisturizing face mask that’s really revitalizing on dry skin. Since both butter and mango are good sources of Vitamin A, this facial is also very helpful on sunburned or damaged skin, or sensitive dry skin.

How to make butter mango face mask:

1. Place mango together with the butter, egg yolk, chamomile oil and apricot oil in a food processor. Blend until you get a nice smooth paste.

 

 

2. Apply paste gently on your clean face, avoiding the delicate eye area. You may want to spread it on your neck too.

 

 

3. Relax and leave the face mask on for 10 to 15 minutes.

 

 

4. Remove mask with a wet, warm washcloth, ending with a splash of cold.  Pat dry with a clean towel. Apply your toner and moisturizer to keep your skin hydrated.

 

 

Important: Don’t use homemade butter face masks if you are allergic to any ingredient used in the facial recipes. For example, strawberry.
