Whether you need to get rid of pimples or if you want to maintain healthy, glowing skin then facial masks are going to be an essential part of your routines. However, it is very expensive to get facial masks at a spa but luckily there are many ways to do your own, right at the comfort of your home. Remember that each facial mask is for a different purpose.
That said, here is a look at three simple variations for three different goals. The ingredients listed are all natural and can be performed at home.
Facial Mask to Treat Dry Skin
Dry skin is a sign of poor skin health and it can become prone to wrinkles, pimples, and other long-term damages that can make your face look scarred and older than it really is. There are many expensive treatments for dry facial skin but this facial mask only requires honey and apple cider vinegar.
Honey servings are potent humectants as well as natural antibiotics. Honey helps moisturize the skin while healing it from previous skin damage. Apple cider vinegar, on the other hand, balances skin PH levels and is important to soothe damaged skin cells.
All you have to do is mix two tablespoons of honey with one tablespoon of apple cider vinegar. Mix well and then apply to the face. Let it stay for twenty minutes before you rinse it off with room temperature water and then with cold water.
Exfoliation is the removal of old, dead skin cells and is one of the most important steps in maintaining healthy skin. This specific recipe involves mixing a teaspoon of honey with a teaspoon of olive oil. Now in a separate mixture prepare a packet of natural oatmeal. You need to use less water so that it becomes a thick, creamy paste.
When the oatmeal paste is ready, simply add in the honey and olive oil mixture. Mix the recipe together and then gently apply it to your face through slow, circular motions. Avoid applying the mixture to your eyes.
Remove this after twenty minutes with warm water and then pat dry your face with a clean towel.
This mixture is very useful because the oatmeal paste is a very potent exfoliation agent. It removes all the dead cells while the honey and olive oil work simultaneously to moisturize the skin. When you’re done you’ll end up with fuller, glowing skin. This can applied once or twice a week.
Face Lifting and Tightening
If you are worried about sagging facial skin that looks heavy and unhealthy then you need a natural facial mask that has a lifting and tightening effect. When you walk into a spa they will charge you very high costs for this kind of treatment but you can do it yourself with nothing but yogurt and lemon juice – extracted from a lemon, not the lemon juice from the grocery store!
You’ll need two tablespoons of yogurt and one tablespoon of lemon juice. It is better if you use a freshly cut and squeezed lemon. Mix the two together and apply it to your face for twenty to thirty minutes. For optimal lifting effects you can keep it on to dry for an hour.
Taking care of your skin is important and while you may have great looking skin now, it won’t last forever if you won’t take any effort to maintain it. This is why using the homemade face masks we’ve revealed above can really help you have beautiful skin anytime, all the time. Good luck!
