Natural Beauty Masks

When you're looking for a quick face mask, consider an at home alternative to the store bought ones. The benefits are two-fold: It is cheaper and all-natural, and a great natural beauty treatment for Latina skin. Here are five easy DIY natural beauty masks that you can make with the ingredients in your kitchen.

Egg White Face Mask
This simple mask only requires two ingredients: An egg and a lemon. The egg (specifically, the egg white) will tighten your pores, and the natural acid in lemon juice will even out skin tone. Simply add 1 egg white and a few tablespoons of fresh strained lemon juice into a bowl and beat the ingredients together until they are evenly incorporated. Apply to your face, avoiding the eye area, and leave it on until the mask dries. Once dried, remove the mask by rinsing your face with warm water. Make sure to apply sunscreen, as lemon may make your skin sensitive to the sun and prone to hyperpigmentation.
