What are some of these homemade DIY face masks you can use?
- Banana Face Mask
Banana is an all-natural ingredient that you can use as a homemade face mask to moisturize your skin. Used regularly, it will leave your skin feeling and looking softer.
How to use it: Take a medium-sized ripe banana and mash it into a smooth paste. Then apply it on your face and neck gently. Leave it on for about 20 minutes, before rinsing with cold water.
- Milk Facial Masks
Milk is another fantastic ingredient you can use to make your DIY face mask. This mask rejuvenates the skin, leaving it feeling fresh and alive.
How to use it: You can make your homemade face mask by making a thick paste using ¼ cup milk powder with water. Remember not to make the consistency too light. Make a nice smooth paste. Coat your entire face with it and let it on until it dries completely. After that, rinse it with warm water. Use regularly for best results.
- YogurtFace Mask
Just like milk, yogurt has lactic acid, which works to lift away rough and lackluster surface cells. This will, in turn, leave your skin looking brighter and better.
How to use it: Make a mixture from 1 tablespoon of natural plain yogurt, 1 tablespoon honey, and 1 tablespoon turmeric powder. Make a smooth paste and apply on the face. Leave it on for 30 to 45 minutes, and then rinse with warm water.
- Hydrating Avocado Mask
The skin can also suffer from stress, especially from outdoor activities. With a stressed-out skin, you’ll be looking dull and, therefore, this avocado mask will do you great. It brings back the glow into the skin.
How to use it: Mash an avocado, and then mix with organic yogurt and honey. Form a soft smooth paste and apply it on your face. Leave it on for about 10-15 minutes before rinsing. You can also add virgin oil for a more intense effect. The incorporation of virgin olive oil instantly turns the skin soft and smooth.
- Egg Facial Masks
If you have a dry skin that needs some loving care, head to your fridge and grab eggs for a moisturizing mask. But the good thing about this mask is that it can also be used on normal and oily skin. The difference is only in the preparation. Eggs have proteins that not only moisturize but can also tighten pores to help reduce oil on the skin.
How to use it: For dry skin, separate the egg white and beat the yolk. Then apply it on your face and then leave it on for 30 minutes before washing your face. For oily skin, use the egg whites together with lemon juice, and turmeric powder. The mixture will help tighten pores to help oily skin. And finally, for normal skins, you should beat the entire egg and gently apply on skin. Leave the face mask on your skin for 30 minutes then rinse off.
- Honey Facial Masks
Honey is the golden secret found in many dermatological acceptable products. This face mask not only nourishes the skin but, when used regularly, will give you younger-looking skin.
How to use it: The first step is to add 2/3 cup of instant oats to a shklouy½ cup hot water. Then heat them for close to five minutes until the mixture becomes thick. Also blend half cored apple with 2 tablespoons of yogurt, 2 tablespoons of honey, and egg white from one egg. After a 45-second pulse, add the heated oatmeal mixture. Continue to blend for another 20-second pulse. Apply it to your face and leave it on for 15 minutes before rinsing.
Homemade face masks are great and very effective. However, it is important to ensure that you use the ingredients while they are still fresh so as to avoid irritating the skin. It is more recommended that you use your mask as soon as you make or at most an hour after preparation. Enjoy your facial experience with these fantastic face masks!
