Hydrating mask for dry skin
Look in your kitchen (or supermarket) for dried oats (3 tbsp), organic honey (1 tbsp), and whole milk (1 tbsp). Use a blender to mix the oats with the milk into a smooth paste. Stir the honey into the paste and apply straight to your face. Leave it on for 20 minutes (you should feel it drying) and remove it with warm water.
The active ingredient in this mask is honey, which acts as a natural, non-oily moisturizer. The benefits of the oats are their amino acids and the gentle exfoliation they allow. The milk’s lactic acid is helpful in removing the dead or dry skin cells and brightening the skin surface.
Pore minimizing mask for oily skin
This mask also uses honey (half a tsp), but this time combines it with an egg white and a tsp of fresh lemon juice — all things you probably have lying around in your kitchen anyway. Start by whisking the egg white with the lemon juice into a frothy mixture, and only then stir the honey into it. When your mask is ready, open your facial pores by washing your face with warm water, and apply the concoction to your face. Leave it on for 10-15 minutes and remove with warm water.
The Ingredients of this mask are effective in toning the skin (egg white), fighting acne and reducing coloration (lemon juice), and disinfecting your skin (honey).
Nourishing mask for combination skin
You can make this mask with half a banana and half an avocado as long as they’re ripe enough. Mash the ingredients into a smooth, lump-free paste. Apply to your skin. Wash it off after 15-20 minutes with warm water.
The avocado’s magic lies in its oleic acid which fights inflammations. The banana’s magic is its vitamins (A and E) and fats (the good kind), which help your skin maintain a soft and supple appearance.
