 “HELP ME, KELP ME”

What you’ll need:
3 sheets of dried Kelp (edible seaweed Koreans use often in cooking and beauty routines)
50 ml of milk
1 egg yolk
2 tablespoons of flour
1 tablespoon of olive oil

How to do it:
Soak the kelp in water for 10 minutes to make sure the sodium is removed from the kelp then drain off the water. The kelp should now be soft. Add the milk and the egg yolk to the kelp, mix together. Next, blend together the mixture in a blender till the pieces of kelp are in small bits (5mm). Add the flour to the mixture. If the mask is too runny add more flour and if’s too thick add more milk. Make sure the mixture is consistent so spreading it over the face and next is easy. Next, add the olive and stir it all up.

Before applying, wash your face with warm water for the pores to be nice and open so the skin soaks up the amazing vitamins you’re about to feed it. Apply the mixture evenly and leave it on for 20 minutes. The mask will harden and your face will feel very tight- lovely ! Wash off the mask with warm water and pat dry. Apply your usual moisturizer.

What the benefits are:
Kelp: Okay it might not sound very appealing to put on the skin but it seriously is one of the best things for it. It is rich in antioxidants, therefore, nourishing the skin, preventing aging and turning back the “skin clock”.
Milk: As we said in face mask 1, it’s a super moisturizer.
Flour: Flour, like milk, helps to naturally whiten the skin to make it bright and lessen dark spots caused by sun exposure.
Eggs: are full of protein making the skin tight and healthy. As the yolk consists of mainly of fat, it works as a powerful emollient to moisturize and provides healthy fats for the skin.
Olive Oil: is  packed with antioxidants and is a brilliant hydrator. Always cook with olive oil instead of butter to nourish your skin from the inside too.

“SWEET AND TANGY”

What you’ll need:
1 0range (you’ll only need the peel, you can eat the rest for added goodness!)
1 tablespoon of honey

How to do it:
Grate your orange peel onto a place (2 tablespoons is enough) then add one tablespoon of honey. Mix it all up to form a sweet and tangy paste. Evenly spread the mask over your face and neck (if you like). It will smell amazing and is one of the most natural and fresh exfoliators you can find.

Leave the mask on for 10 minutes. After, gently exfoliate the face in circular motions letting the skin absorb that Vitamin C and the mixture will wipe away those dead skin cells. Wash off the mask after 1 minute of exfoliation and then pat your face dry with a clean towel.

What the benefits are:
Orange: the delicious fruit is overflowing with vitamin C an antioxidant which neutralizes free radicals (what make you age). It also brightens and tightens the skin making your skin look like a Korean beauty. It’s also a miracle acne and blemish cure.
Honey: this sweet stuff has many benefits such as anti-inflammatory properties, antioxidant properties, and anti-blemish properties. What more could you want?

Repeat your favorite mask a few times a week or you can alternate between them. Keeping it up is key.
