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.
