Hydrating Egg White Face Masks
What you need:
- 1/4 ripe avocado
- 1 teaspoon yogurt
1. Using a fork, mash the avocado until smooth.
2. Add the egg white and yogurt and mix well.
3. Pour the mixture into the container.
4. To use, apply a thick coat onto your face with clean hands and let it sit for about 15 minutes.
5. Wash off the mask with lukewarm water when the time is up, and pat your face dry with a towel. Enjoy the look of your freshly moisturized skin!
Be sure to use this face mask immediately after making it!
Mother’s Day Daffodils
What you need:
- cardboard egg cartons
- hot glue gun
- yellow and green pipe cleaners
- yellow and orange paint
- green cardstock
- glass jar
1. With strong scissors, cut out the center points of your egg carton. Also, individually cut out each egg holder.
2. Take the individual egg holder and use your scissors to cut rounded petals. Make at least 5 petals, and then poke a hole in the center of each flower. Lastly, round the edges of all the center points.
3. Paint the petals yellow and the center points orange.
4. Cut about a fourth of a yellow pipe cleaner and stick it through the hole in the orange center point, then place the yellow flower on as well.
5. Cut a leaf shape out of green cardstock, and hole-punch a hole into the bottom of the leaf. Then slide the leaf onto a green pipe cleaner.
6. Twist the yellow pipe cleaner with the green one to combine the stem and the flower together.
7. Repeat these steps to make multiple daffodils to add to your vase. This craft makes a great gift for mother’s day or a beautiful spring decoration!
