It may seem strange, but mayonnaise and baby oil make a great moisturizing mask that’s easy to make at home. All you will need is 2 tablespoons of real mayonnaise and 1 tablespoon of baby oil. Simply mix the two ingredients together and apply to your face, knees, elbows and other dry areas. Let this sit for about twenty minutes and rinse off with lukewarm water.
Why This Works:
- Mayonnaise is made of eggs which are loaded with moisture and contain Vitamin A. Eggs also can brighten skin and help minimize pores. Another benefit of Mayonnaise is that it is high in Vitamin E which moisturizes and has anti-aging properties.
- Baby oil is both moisturizing and a natural emollient, which means it helps retain your skins moisture by helping to prevent evaporation.
