Beauty products can get pretty expensive, depending on your skin care needs. However; it doesn’t have to be. There are many ways you can spend less money and still achieve the skin you want. One of the ways you can do that is save money on sheet masks. You only use them once anyway. I bought a pack of DIY sheet masks from a local store, you can buy them in bulk on ebay as well. Here’s a link: http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_odkw=sheet+mask&_sop=15&_osacat=0&_from=R40&_trksid=p2045573.m570.l1313&_nkw=diy+sheet+mask&_sacat=0.
The sheet masks I bought came in a set of 25 with 25 pairs (50) under eye masks as well. I paid $2.99+tax on it. So it wasn’t expensive. the fun part is getting to choose what kind of face masks you want. I’ve already made cucumber face masks and a few tomato face masks as well as cucumber under eye masks. I have tried the cucumber under eye masks i’ve made and I must say, it does work. I also plan to make green tea and honey face masks and green tea under eye masks.
Btw: you’ll need a blender for this and zip lock bags!
1- Cut your fruit, in this case cucumber into slices
2- Throw it into your blender and purée!
3- Pour the goo/juice into a wide bowl
(I actually tried dipping the face masks into the blender cup but it does not saturate the cotton as well as when you do soak it into the bowl)
4- gently press out any excess goo/juice
5- carefully and neatly fold the mask into in half twice and put it in a ziplock bag for storage
6- refrigerate/freeze to keep the cucumber mask fresh
7- take your mask out to defrost before using it
(you don’t want to put something icy cold against your delicate skin)
8- relax and enjoy your mask.
Perks: Cost efficient, natural, fun to make.
Downside: pulp left on your face, they require a refrigerator to keep them fresh
