I found for you 4 homemade facial mask to illuminate your skin. If you don’t want to buy so much expensive creams, you can easily do these masks at home. As your grandma, in fact, we know that the elements we find at home may be very precious ally of your beauty routine.
Cut a slice of ripe papaya and remove the seeds and pulp (save the pulp for a snack later—it’s great for digestion). Rub the inside of the papaya peel on your cleansed face, focusing on lines around the mouth and eyes, crow’s feet, thinning temples, neck and hands. Let it dry for 15 to 20 minutes, then rinse with tepid water. This mask can be done twice a week. “The enzymes in papaya exfoliate, repair sun damage, diminish age spots and smooth skin. Your skin will look brighter, with a more polished finish,” says Macan-Graves, author of “Hollywood Beauty Secrets: Remedies to the Rescue”.
AVOCADO AND HONEY MASK
This is a great mask for dry, peeling and scaling skin. The avocado and coconut oil provide replenishing moisture, while the honey helps to heal any chafed or raw areas. Avocado masks are used by celebs like Victoria Beckham and Jessica Biel, and the best part is that you can eat the second half that you don’t use on your face.
1/2 a very ripe avocado
2 tablespoons honey
1/2 teaspoon coconut oil
Mash or puree the avocado until it’s smooth and creamy, and then blend in the rest of the ingredients. Apply to your face, avoiding your eyes, and leave it on for 10-15 minutes. Wipe your skin clean with a damp, warm cloth, or rinse your face with warm water in the shower.

Self-tanning, refreshing, capable of giving your skin light and vitality… so many advantages from carrots!
100 grams of carrots

Blend the carrots in the blender and slowly pour in the almond oil. Continue until you obtain a smooth mixture, ready to spread. If it’s too solid add a little more oil. Apply it to your face, avoiding the area around your eyes and mouth, and then remove it delicately after 10 minutes. The mixture can be kept in the fridge for a few days so that you can use it more than once.
PLAIN YOGURT FACIAL MASK
Good for those with sensitive skin, plain yogurt is filled with Vitamin B2 (riboflavin), protein and fat. Together, these ingredients illuminate and brighten your skin while increasing elasticity.

Cleanse your face. Evenly apply plain yogurt on face. After 10 to 15 minutes, you will notice that the yogurt has dried up. Gently rub your face with a damp washcloth, which will help remove dead skin cells. Wash off the remaining product.
