In October, the accumulated summer tan is no longer our friend. With the reduction of the sunshine it has become a grayish, irregular layer, which prevents our skin from breathing, provokes acne and makes the fine wrinkles more noticeable. So the first thing we need to do is get rid of it.


Whitening cucumber lotion

Grind a fresh cucumber along with the skin and place the pulp in a clean, glass jar. Add 100 ml. vodka (if necessary add more to fully cover the cucumber). Let the mixture stand for ten days in the dark and then double strain through gauze. Remains to add 2 tsp glycerin and the whitening lotion is ready. With it rub your face in the morning and evening after cleansing. The durability is sufficient for use in the course of 2-3 months.


Apple mask for equalization of the tan

Grind in a blender half an apple and add 1 tablespoon honey and 1 tablespoon wheat germ oil, which is an exceptionally rich source of vitamin E. Apply the mixture on the face for 15 minutes and then rinse with lukewarm water.


Anti-aging mask with grape and humani

Mix 2 tablespoons of humani, 1 tsp grapeseed oil and freshly squeezed grape juice, enough to get a creamy consistency (about 2 tablespoons). The mask is applied for about 15 min; rinse and then apply a light moisturizing cream. Grape seed oil and grape juice are known for their anti-aging effect and the humani cleanses and firms the skin.


Refreshing yeast-pumpkin mask

Dissolve 1 tablespoon beer yeast (if not found, replace it with bread) with some milk until you get a homogeneous slurry. Add 1 tablespoon of boiled pumpkin and a few drops of jojoba oil. This mask is clean energy for your skin – the yeasts are rich in the essential for the skin B group vitamins, the pumpkin – the refreshing the tan beta-carotene and the jojoba oil accelerates the cell regeneration.
