#iorestoacasa: 3 skincare treatments to make at home

Dai trattamenti esfolianti, a quelli idratanti

By Elisa Grasso

Taking care of your skin is a real act of love towards yourself, especially in these weeks in which maintaining a good level of mental and physical well-being can be really helpful.

For this reason we decided to offer you 3 skincare treatments that you can easily make at home, ensuring you have your face cleansed and cleansed before being relaxed!

Coffee scrub

The coffee scrub is one of the most popular mechanical exfoliation methods, with invigorating, nourishing and emollient properties. Mix together 1 teaspoon of coffee, 1 teaspoon of honey and 2 teaspoons of vegetable oil (e.g. coconut, almond, olive oil, etc.) until a sticky but smooth mixture is obtained.

Apply the scrub to your moistened face - but it is also perfect for the body! - and massage gently without applying pressure, leave on for 5 minutes and rinse with the help of cotton pads or a clean microfibre cloth. At this point you can continue with your usual skincare.

It is preferable to do the scrub 1 or maximum 2 times a week, preferably in the evening to prevent the sun's rays from attacking the skin which after exfoliation will be more sensitive. In any case, always remember to apply sunscreen during the day!

White clay and aloe vera mask

White clay is very delicate and is also perfect for sensitive skin, because it exfoliates and softens the skin without irritating it.
Mix 1 tablespoon of white clay, 1 tablespoon of pure aloe vera gel which will help soothe and hydrate the skin and a few drops of water until a soft and compact mixture is obtained.

Apply the mask generously on the skin, taking care to avoid the eye area (very delicate area!) And leave it on for a few minutes. As soon as you start to feel the feeling of skin pulling, remove it with cotton pads or a clean microfibre cloth, do not wait for the mask to dry completely! Proceed with your usual skincare. You can make this mask 2 or 3 times a week according to your needs.

Mask with rice and green tea leaves

This mask has moisturizing, antioxidant and soothing properties and is an excellent alternative to fabric masks. Prepare a green tea and let it cool on a plate; once cooled, gently cut the rice sheet (which you can find in grocery stores) into sections and leave to soak in green tea for 5-10 minutes until the pieces have softened. Place them gently on the face and leave on for about 10 minutes, until they have dried. Remove everything and continue with your usual skincare. This mask can be made whenever you feel the need, even every evening.
