You always seem to fall short on time during a wedding. For every bride, her wedding day is special. Brides often spend a huge sum of money on beauty products or beauty treatments before their wedding. You don’t have to; instead save that money for something you need the most. Opt for homemade beauty treatments instead, which are easy to make, and you won’t end up spending a large sum on getting treated at a beauty salon. You can have youthful glowing skin with homemade beauty masks, which you should start using at least a month before your Big Day. Here are s few more facial masks, which I have tried and tested myself, which you can apply regularly since they are all natural and contain no side-effects; within a month you should notice baby soft skin with a dewy glow on your face.

Egg white is great for tightening and toning skin. It works wonders for greasy skin by shrinking large pores on the skin surface, thereby reducing excess sebum. Large pores are also potential breeding grounds for bacteria that cause bulbous zits and cysts, which means pore-tightening egg white can help reduce acne. All you got to do is separate egg white in a bowl and apply it on your face and neck. Leave it to dry for 15 to 20 minutes, then wash off with cold water.

In a small bowl, combine all the above ingredients well in order to form a creamy paste. Wash your face thoroughly and then apply a thick layer. Leave it for 20 minutes until it dries completely, and then wash off with cold water. This skin lightening face pack soothes sunburn skin, fades away discoloration and uneven skin tone. Milk and honey lightens and softens rough dull skin. Rice Powder controls excess oil, exfoliates and clears the skin thus imparting a radiant and fairer complexion.

You’ve heard of mayonnaise for your hair, but it also works wonders on the skin. With ingredients like egg and soybean oil, mayonnaise is a natural emollient that will soothe dry skin. Spread 2 tablespoons of chilled mayonnaise on your skin. After 15 minutes, wash off with cold water. When your skin needs a serious dose of moisture, then this is the quickest mask you’ll find in your fridge.
Note: Use ingredients in accordance with your skin type. It is important to formulate your face mask in accordance with the skin you possess. Keep in mind that ideally, a facial mask should not remain on the face or skin for more than 20 minutes. It is important to wash face masks clean with a washcloth dipped in lukewarm water. Keep the wet washcloth on the dry mask and then lightly press on the face. Once the face mask becomes a little damp, dip the cloth in lukewarm water again and use a circular motion to clear the face mask. Use a cotton swab dipped in cold water to clear small particles on the face. Lastly, splash your face with cold water and dab softly with a soft towel.
These masks will not work until you start eating clean, get proper sleep and drink 2 litres of water per day. Besides these, you can also start taking detox drinks to clean toxins from your system. No stress, fried food or sodas.
