Cornstarch Face Mask DIY

As we mentioned in a previous Tips + Tricks to Chemo post, cornstarch is a great natural remedy for dry skin. Here are a couple great recipes for DIY face masks to try out!
For Dry Skin: (Cornstarch Lemon Mask)
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • 1 beaten egg white
  • 1 tablespoon of cornstarch
Mix ingredients thoroughly to form a smooth paste. The lemon cleanses and exfoliates, the egg white nourishes and firms, while the cornstarch softens the skin.
For oil Skin: (Strawberry Honey Cornstarch Mask)
  • ½ cup(s) strawberries
  • 1 tbsp. honey
  • ¼ cup(s) milk low fat
  • 1 tablespoon rice flour or cornstarch
Puree strawberries with honey in a blender, pour into a bowl. Add cornstarch and milk together to strawberries mixture. Apply to your face, avoiding the delicate area around your eyes. Leave on for 20-30 minutes, and then rinse off with cool water.
