Anti-wrinkle peeling mask

Add a tablespoon of sour cream and ten drops of castor oil to a finely chopped handful of peeled pumpkin seeds and mix all ingredients together and bring them to a homogeneous mass. Apply the mask to cleansed face and leave it on for half an hour. The results will be more effective if you standstill while performing the treatment, and even better if lying down. The mask should be removed with a cotton ball and your face washed with lukewarm water.

Bake an apple, peel it, then mash the soft part and add a tablespoon of sour cream. Stir until you get a homogeneous mass. Apply the mask to previously cleansed face, leave it on for 20 minutes, then rinse with lukewarm water.

Mix one yolk with 5 teaspoons of freshly squeezed quince juice and 4 teaspoons of wheat germ. Apply the mask to a clean face and leave it on for half an hour, then rinse your face with warm water.
