Whether you like to buy them or make them, they are the perfect addition to your skincare routine. We recommend trying these ones. Making them won’t be complicated and the results will amaze you.
Avocado Face Mask
Suitable for: Dry Skin
Avocado is not only a superfood for our bodies. It is also one of the best ingredients you can put on your face and make it glow. It is full of Omega-3 fatty acids and when combined with other ingredients it can make a miracle on your skin.
For the best hydrating mask you can mix:
- One mashed avocado
- Add two tablespoons of plain yogurt
- Add one tablespoon of olive oil
- Add one tablespoon of honey
Mix everything until it is blended. Apply on your skin and leave it for about 20 minutes. Rinse well with lukewarm water. Pay attention to your hairline and wash it thoroughly.
Honey Face Mask
Suitable for: Normal to Dry Skin
Honey is particularly good for scars and dark spots on the face. Usually, these marks are a consequence of not applying sunscreen or being under the sun for too long. Honey’s anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and soothing effects will soften your skin.
Let’s give your face a glow back. You will need:
- 2 tablespoons of raw honey
- ½ tablespoons of lemon juice
Mix together and apply the mixture to your face. You can leave it there for 20-30 minutes. Rinse off with lukewarm water. Be aware that lemon shouldn’t be used on the face too much, so apply this mask once a week.
Banana Face Mask
Suitable for: Oily Skin
Bananas are full of potassium, silica, and antioxidants. These powerful ingredients are perfect for hydrating skin and boosting that glow that usually women with oily faces lose.
Ingredients you will need:
- A few slices of ripped banana
- 1 tablespoon of Greek yogurt (thick consistency)
- ½ tablespoon lemon juice
Mash banana with the spoon, add yogurt and lemon juice, and mix it. Apply the mask on your face evenly and let it sit for 25-30 minutes. You can then massage the mixture and rinse it off with water.
Aloe Vera Face Mask
Suitable for: Dry and Flaky Skin
Aloe vera is a plant that is enriched with powerful vitamins A and C, antioxidants, and enzymes. That is why it is considered a miracle ingredient for dry, very dry, and flaky skin. While enzymes will exfoliate the skin very gently, other anti-inflammatory properties will soothe irritated skin.
For this mask you will need:
- 2 tablespoons of aloe vera gel
- One mashed banana
- Three teaspoons of almond oil
Mash the banana until you get a smooth mixture. Add aloe vera gel and almond oil and stir well. Apply on your face, using your fingers, and leave it for about 15 minutes. After that, rinse off with lukewarm water or a washcloth.
Oatmeal Face Mask
Suitable for: Normal, Oily, and Dry Skin
The benefits of oat are unbelievable. Their moisturizing power comes from oils, starches, and sugar that are present in grains. They are incredibly absorbent, so you can expect them to remove all the excess oil from your face. Finally, they have anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties.
You will need:
- 3 teaspoons of oats or oatmeal
- 1 teaspoon of plain or almond milk (you can warm it just a bit)
- 1 teaspoon of plain or coconut yogurt
- 1 teaspoon of rose water
Blend oats with milk that is slightly warmed. Stir well until a paste is formed. Add other ingredients and apply to a clean but damp face. Let it sit for 15-30 minutes. Rinse off with a washcloth and warm water.
Turmeric Face Mask
Suitable For: Acne-Prone Skin
There is nothing worse than a build-up of oil, dead skin cells, and bacteria that can clog all your pores. This usually happens to people with oily skin. Let’s give your skin an extra dose of love. While turmeric is an anti-inflammatory ingredient, honey has antibacterial properties.
You will need:
- Half a teaspoon of turmeric powder or paste
- One tablespoon of honey
Mix these two ingredients into a paste and apply it with your fingers all over your face. Leave it for about 15-20 minutes and then rinse with a washcloth and warm water.
