Face masks are a very important part of skincare, and for the time when you are too lazy or don’t want to wander farther than your kitchen, to get your skin glowing before the night out or just to spend some time taking care of yourself, whip up some recipes for the best homemade face masks from below.
Homemade Banana Mask
Banana is packed with some vital vitamins and nutrients that make banana face masks extraordinary beauty fix. Mash up a medium-sized ripe banana into a smooth paste, then gently apply it to your face and neck. Let it sit for 10 to 20 minutes, then rinse it off with lukewarm water and then moisturize.
Plain Ol’ Yogurt Mask
Yogurt is a great ingredient for getting rid of acne naturally, as it contains anti-bacterial and anti-microbial properties, so it is great for acne-prone skin. Use plain, unsweetened probiotic yogurt as sweetened and flavored types will cause skin irritations. Mix it with 1 teaspoon of honey until you get a creamy paste. You can optionally add a squeeze of lemon to help brighten the skin or blend in a few blueberries for additional antioxidants. Apply a thick coat to your face with a clean brush or fingers. Let it sit for 10 to 20 minutes, rinse it off with lukewarm water. And feel free to eat the leftovers. 🙂
Lemon juice is packed with so many nutrients and its citric acid gradually fades spots and evens your skin tone, but one must be careful with the appliance, so make sure you don’t exfoliate your skin before adding this mask because the lemon juice can make it sting. Mix 1/2 of real lemon or a few drops of lemon oil (it has the same effect) with 2 teaspoons of honey. Apply all over your face, avoiding the eye area. Rinse it off with cold water and pat to dry with a soft towel.
Egg Face Mask
The nutrients in egg yolks work to hydrate, nourish, and moisturize dull skin. If you have dry skin that needs moisturizing, separate the egg and beat the yolk, and mix it with a banana and a bit of olive oil.
Egg white is great for tightening and toning the skin. So if you have oily skin, beat the whites with 1 tsp of honey and 1 tsp of lemon juice.
For normal skin, use the entire egg.
Apply your mask, relax and wait for 20 minutes, then rinse with lukewarm then cold water at the end.
