Natural fruit, berry, and vegetable

masks

August is the last summer month. It is the time of vegetables, fruit,

and berries. Besides, it is the time of a big economy on cosmetics. Replacing

store-bought cosmetics by hand-made cosmetics saves a good sum of money.

Furthermore, such creams and masks do not contain unhealthy preservatives

or emulsifiers.

Tomato

Tomato pilling for dry and spongy skin.

In cosmetology tomato is used as a good fruity pilling. Tomato juice contains

many organic acids which destroy the upper keratinous skin layer and let

new skin breathe and grow.

Tomato mask:

Place tomato pieces or juice on your face for 25-30 minutes. Rinse off

with warm, then cool water. It is recommended for oily, large–pored,

and sallow skin.

Nutrient tomato cream:

dissolve one dessert-spoon of lanolin and add one dessert-spoon of oatmeal

or oat flakes that have been ground to powder. Mix everything thoroughly

and add one tablespoon of tomato juice. Blend the cream until smooth and

keep in a cold place.

Cucumber

Fresh cucumber

juice is a splendid treatment for soft skin purification due to dust and

pollution. It moves away excess of oil, refreshes the face, and at the

same time contracts pores.

Cucumber mask:

Take thinly cut slices of cucumber and put on the face and on décolletage

area for 20 minutes. Cover with a napkin in order not to let cucumbers

dry ahead of time.

One more effective recipe from cucumber for oily skin is powder. It not

only hides oil luster, but also has a curative effect.

Cucumber - rice powder takes up an excess of skin oil and clean pores

by contracting them. It therefore lowers the number of “blackheads”

and different skin inflammations.

Cucumber powder:

Pound dried cucumber seeds and mix with rice flour. This mask can be kept

for a long time.

Grapes

Grape juice stimulates

metabolism in the skin and contributes to its hydration. An everyday wipe

of the face, neck, and hands by grape juice gives a good effect. Rinse

off with warm water after 10-15 minutes.

Raspberry

Raspberry juice purifies, moistens, refreshes, and nourishes tired skin.

Raspberry masks:

For dry skin, mix raspberry juice with yolk, cream, or sour cream. For

oily, large-pored skin, mix raspberry with egg-white or rice flour. For

a nutrient mask pound raspberries with honey. You can put a hot compress

on the mask. For dry, large-pored skin, pat raspberry leave over the face

for 20 minutes. Rinse off with warm water. For acne treatment, put on

a mixture of fresh raspberry leaf juice and egg-white in the ratio 1:2.

After 20 minutes rinse off with warm water.

Pear

Pear masks: pear juice suits all skin types. Pear masks and lotions make

the skin smooth, elastic, and it contracts pores. Keep pear pulp gruel

on the face for 20 minutes and rinse off with warm, then cool, water.

Carrot

Carrot masks: a nutrient mask of carrot juice mixed

with wheat flour suits all skin types. Pat the mixture evenly all over

the purified face for 20 minutes. Rinse off with cold water. Oily skin

that is inclined to acne is saved from an excess of skin oil. Dry skin

becomes saturated with vitamins and minerals. Carrot masks are recommended

for use only in the evening because skin can be dyed -- the pigment is

not steady but very bright.

Apple

Sliced apples can be used for facial massage.

Apple massage:

Wipe your face, neck, and then the whole body with apple halves. This

massage is very useful for those who are older than 30. After 30, our

natural skin structure begins to weaken.

To support it we need vitamin C. Only lemons, oranges, and mandarins

contain more ascorbic acid than apples. Besides, apple pectin clears skin

from toxic substances.

Apple mask:

boil an apple with a little milk or bake it. Pat this warm gruel over

the face for 30 minutes. Rinse off with cool water. A fresh complexion

and slight lifting are guaranteed.

Currant

Currant

masks:

For oily skin, use fresh currant juice. For fading oily skin, currant

gruel and fresh juice are used as masks which are put on the face for

20 minutes. Before putting a mask on dry or normal skin, it is necessary

to put on nutrient cream. Such masks nourish the skin and contract pores.

Strawberry

Strawberry masks:

Fresh strawberry gruel is used for dry and fading skin. Pat it all over

the face for 20 minutes. To this gruel you can add yolk, honey, and cream

(for dry and normal skin); or egg-white (for oily skin).

You can also cover your face with napkins wetted in strawberry juice.


Baldness medicine: take a strawberry leaf extract, made in the ratio of

1:10, one tablespoon 3-4 times a day.

Watermelon

Watermelon juice

is used for both dry and oily skin.

Watermelon masks:

Pat watermelon pulp all over the face for 20 minutes. Rinse off with warm

water. After sunburns, masks from the mixture of melon water and cucumber

pulp taken in equal parts are very effective. Pat this mask over the face

for 20 minutes.

Nature Secrets

Garlic essence shows bactericide properties and effectively

helps to get rid of spots. At the first signs, pat some fresh garlic juice

on the inflamed area. Despite its unpleasant smell, garlic has such a

big antiseptic power that spots dry and disappear.

If you want to have a fresh complexion, take any fruit

and cut it to pieces, then put it on the face for 15-20 minutes.

Influence of different fruit on skin: bananas –

smooth and soften; cowberry and bilberry - contract pores and nourish;

peaches - smooth and soften; raspberries –moisten and nourish; lemons

– whiten skin and contract pores (it is necessary to add some other

fruit juice to a strong lemon one); sea-buckthorns – heal wounds.

This could be interesting for you: it is possible to slow down the skin

aging process by eating more grapes. This fruit stimulates collagen making.

It is collagen that keeps skin elastic and protects from wrinkles.

Do you know why Catherine Zeta-Jones has such a snow-white

smile? The secret is that from time to time she brushes her teeth with

strawberry. Catherine puts a piece of fresh strawberry on a toothbrush.

Meanwhile, British scientists are working on the invention of a genetically

modified strawberry capable of protecting teeth from cavities.
