The benefits of corn starch: DIY face mask

Nothing beats grandmother's recipes

Aging of the skin happens naturally and this leads to a loss of collagen .

Of course, different factors can play a role during this process. Your stress level, lack of sleep or hydration, the sun... there are many causes and it is sometimes difficult to act on these factors.

Anti-wrinkle creams and various facial treatments can be effective, but often expensive , they end up piling up in the bathroom, with no apparent or visible result.

With its many properties, corn starch allows the skin not only to regenerate , but to recover elasticity . So how can we not want to adopt corn starch in our beauty routine ? Especially since it is an ingredient present in our cupboards. We recommend that you integrate this new ingredient into your routine using DIY recipes.

We love DIY, we embrace it and obviously you do too.

Starch mask recipe

1 tbsp corn starch

1 tbsp rice flour

150 ml of water

1 tbsp of natural yogurt

60 ml of carrot juice

In a bowl, pour 50 ml of water and mix the corn starch until you obtain a smooth cream.

In a saucepan, boil the remaining 100 ml of water.

Add the starch mixture, stirring until the mixture thickens slightly.

Leave to cool and add a spoonful of natural yogurt and the carrot juice.

Apply the mask to your face and leave it on for 40 minutes before rinsing with lukewarm water.

Moisturize your skin with your usual care.

Are you wondering why yogurt or carrots?

If you don't know yet, the lactic acid present in yogurt visibly reduces the appearance of wrinkles while tightening pores. It also provides elasticity to the skin .

Rice flour is known for its multiple beauty benefits, it acts as an exfoliant to remove dead skin, but also as an anti-wrinkle thanks to its content of squalene and linoleic acid as well as vitamin B3 .

Carrot juice contains beta carotene , like corn starch, and therefore protects your skin from external damage. Apply once a week for stunning results.

You can also integrate pure food supplements into your routine for even more radiant skin. Taking care of your skin from the outside is good, but from the outside and the inside is even better.
