These days many people are avoiding expensive mainstream cosmetic products in favor of natural alternatives. The fact is that you will be able to use mayonnaise as a rather effective facemask, but only if you know how to go about doing it. The first thing you will want to do is to put several tablespoons of mayonnaise in a bowl and mix with a half tablespoon of all-natural honey. You will find that both honey and mayonnaise can be very good for exfoliating the skin and getting rid of dead skin cells which can contribute to poor skin quality and an aged appearance.
Honey also has certain anti-fungal properties which you will find to be quite beneficial. The next step in this process involves squeezing a little bit of juice from half a lemon until it fills a full tablespoon. Lemon is a great ingredient to use in your natural facemask because of the fact that it makes for an excellent astringent. Those who have problems with acne will find that these ingredients when mixed together can help out quite a bit with treating such a condition.
After you are done thoroughly stirring this mixture of ingredients together, you will want to completely wash your face as well as your neck with warm water. Make sure to pat your skin dry before you start applying the facial mask, just so you can increase its overall effectiveness. You will want to keep the mayonnaise mix on your face for about ten minutes before rinsing it off with cold water, just so it will have time to exfoliate your skin and work its magic.
