DIY AHA watermelin-lemon Face Mask
Here's a fun demonstration of one of my most fav recipee of summer: Watermelon and lemon AHA face mask.
The solution is really watery so you will need compressed face mask to apply it. By all means, you can simply splash the juice on your face but it will dry up in like 2-3 minutes and for AHA to work on your skin, that is to exfoloitae, to brighten up, to remove sun tan, to fade marks, to reduce the apperacnce of pores, to help with break outs, to help with anti-aging thing (yes AHA does all that...search google if you dont believe me) you need to give it a little more time...
Thats where the compressed face mask comes into play..you can drench it with the juice and apply the mask on your face and the skin will be in contact with the juice aka AHA. You can keep the face mask on for 30-40 minutes or until dry and AHA will have that much time to work on magic.
Also notice the compressed face mask in the packet? I bought 50 of them from ebay for 7-8 pound I think..they are a life-saver.
Now when you take it off the packaging and drop it on the juice, it will absorb the juice. Its quite fun to watch. I wasn't planning to capture the animation so I didn't really kept my hands steady..so excuse my stupid gif..but here's an attempt.
LOL, fun, yes? Eventually it will be totally saturated with the juice.
Anyway, take it off, wash off with water (not cleanser)...you will look brighter immediately...follow up with your favorite moisturizer.
Remember AHA will make your face vulnurable to tan so you should do it at night. If apply this juice during the day time, then go out, wash off your face with cleanser to make sure all the acidic residue is gone..then apply some strong sun screen...otherwise all the brightening effect that AHA produced all will be gone.Do this once a week to improve the texture, condition, tone of your skin. I can personally vouch that this, not only water melon and lime, any fruit juice really, works.
So treat your skin with some fruit juice today...and dont forget to drink a loads. All Hail summer fruits.
