When Halle Berry tells you what to put on your face, you listen. The actress took to the Rē-Spin Instagram page, her digital health and wellness community, to share a recipe for one of her favourite homemade masks that “brightens, tightens, reduces fine lines and enhances that natural glow.”
The recipe calls for you to mix two tablespoons of brewed green tea, a pinch of turmeric powder, half a teaspoon of lemon juice and a quarter cup of plain yoghurt. Apply the mixture all over your face and neck and leave it on for three minutes.
Next, layer on a second coat of the DIY face mask and leave it for ten minutes. Rinse it off with cold water and finish your at-home treatment with your go-to moisturiser.
#3 Bella and Gigi Hadid’s facialist’s favourite masks for every skin concern
Celebrity facialist Mimi Luzon shared not one, but three DIY face mask recipes with E! News that are perfect for anyone with dull, clogged or tired skin.
For anyone suffering from dull skin, Luzon recommended a brightening mask combining one teaspoon each of flour, turmeric, lemon, and milk. Leave it on for twenty minutes before rinsing with water to reveal glowing and soft skin.
If you skin is feeling clogged, try Luzon’s twenty-minute green tea mask. Mix one cup of green tea, two cups of rice flour, and half a teaspoon of honey. “This is an excellent toxin cleanser,” Luzon said. “It enhances skin tone and gives skin an instant glow.”
Or slough away dead skin cells and reveal a brighter complexion with her oatmeal exfoliating mask. Boil and mix two teaspoons of oatmeal and a squeeze of lemon and, once it’s cooled, leave it on for fifteen minutes. Luzon suggests skipping the lemon if you have sensitive skin.
