Chamomile mask and Apple mask

Chamomile mask:
Dried chamomiles
Oat meal
Take a handful of dried chamomiles. Strain them after 20 minutes and use the stuff after mixing it with honey and oatmeal.

Apple mask:
½ apple, peeled and sliced
1 tbsp honey
1 tbsp ascorbic acid
1 egg yolk
1 tbsp cider vinegar
2 tbsp oil.
Put all the ingredients into a liquidizer and blend until completely smooth. After making a paste, apply it on the face. This is a most effective for all skin types. (Also refer the posts on Dry skin, oily skin, combination skin, Normal skin.)

Vinegar restores the acid mantle and the apple contains pectin, which is soothing. The ascorbic acid contains vitamin C and prevents the apple from turning brown. Honey, egg and oil are all highly nutritious.

    Chamomile contains phenolic derivatives, which have an antiseptic and healing quality, which is most helpful in relieving skin congestion. These soften the skin, making it an effective ingredient in any anti-aging cosmetic product.

  3. Chamomile oil has also great wound healing properties and is extensively used with skin problems such as rashes, acne, eczema, psoriasis, hypersensitive skin and allergic conditions.The flavonoids as well as the lipophilic (sesquiterpenes) compounds found in camomile oil help to reduce capillary fragility, which in turn helps to strengthen the skin. The vasoconstrictor properties again help to reduce redness of the skin, which is due to enlarged capillaries
