Dates Facial Mask to Soften and Brighten your Skin

This all natural facial mask is a great solution for giving your skin a boost!

Luscious, toffee-textured dates can do more than just giving you a healthy eating lifestyle or helping your immune system. Did you know homemade dates facial mask can get rid of impurities, revitalise and freshen up your skin?

This, in turn, improves the elasticity of your skin, giving it a smooth and firm texture.

With their nutritional value, dates are packed with a powerful jab of Vitamin B5, which is known to solve your skin care frustrations.

Vitamin B5, also known as Pantothenic acid, belongs to a water-soluble vitamin. When lotions or creams containing this vitamin are applied to the face, it helps moisturise, heal and renew the skin.

But, when you have effective natural ingredients, like the dates, you can forget about the harmful and chemical-contained creams and lotions!

Added to that, dates are very rich in Pantothenic acid, which makes them more effective, and also helps slow down the skin ageing process.

Regular application of dates facial mask can certainly bring about a notable difference in the texture of your skin.

However, if you want to see a difference that is long lasting and also skin deep, DESIblitz suggests that you include dates in your daily diet, at least three a day.

But for now, get regular with applying dates to the skin. See our step-by-step dates facial mask:

Dates Facial Mask Ingredients

  • 5 dates
  • Half cup milk
  • One tablespoon of semolina
  • Two tablespoons of raw honey

Step One ~ Dates

Dates, the crown of Middle East.

Although dates can be eaten fresh, it is very important to wash them properly, as dust gathers on them easily.

So before preparing for your dates facial mask, open them up and remove the seeds.

Now wash the inside thoroughly, so that the dust is cleaned before application.

Also, before buying the dates, make sure you check that they are properly packed.

Although these treasures are very beneficial, you still need to take care while choosing and washing them.

Step Two ~ Milk

As similar to lemon, Milk is known to contain lactic acid, which helps to brighten and somewhat lighten the skin tone.

Milk on its own can do wonders for the skin. From repairing the skin to moisturising and calming sensitive skin.

But, for the dates facial mask, you will need to boil the milk.

Pour it into a milk pan and boil for 5 minutes, on low heat.

Step Three ~ Dates & Milk

Turn off the flame!

And now, throw the five dates into the milk.

Let them soak, for at least half an hour.

Step Four ~ Blend

It’s now time to blend away!

Placing the mixture inside a blender, you must grind the dates and milk for five seconds.

Or until the dates have softened.

But, not completely crushed.

Step Five ~ Honey and Semolina

Add a tablespoon of honey and semolina and continue blending all the mixture together, until you get a rather grainy texture.

Honey is anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory, which helps in minimising the scar appearances on your skin.

On the other hand, semolina flour or also called Sooji can be used as a scrub. Its beady texture deeply cleanses the pores, giving the skin a radiant look.

With its nutritional content, semolina is a good source of the vital vitamin. Such as vitamin B. In addition, it also carries minerals. Such as magnesium.

Step Six ~ Application and Removal

Apply the dates facial mask evenly to your face and neck, and leave on for 30 minutes.

Once the mask has dried up, wet your hands and start scrubbing your face in circular motions for another 5 minutes.

Rinse with lukewarm water and pat dry with a clean towel.

You will immediately witness the softness in your skin. As well as, a clearer complexion.

Yet, to see a more visible difference, follow this dates facial mask routine regularly. At least, once a week.

This all natural facial mask is a great solution for giving your skin a boost! A natural treatment for any skin condition.

So, why purchase face masks or creams and lotions when you can make your own magic dates facial mask!
