DIY facial masks

Facial MaskSpring time is just around the corner, which means your skin is on high alert and in need of a face mask that will help nourish and care for it.

That’s right, that means everybody, so it is only right to learn a few tricks before it gets too out of hand.

Not everybody has the same skin, so it’s only fair to let everybody learn a few easy tricks to help their specific skin type.

Homemade masks are not only amazing for your face, but it even leaves you saving tons on expensive face products.

Each mask is super easy and can be done in as little as five to 15 minutes. How amazing is that?

Mask for all skin types

The ingredients include avocado, grapefruit, lemon juice, and cornmeal (oatmeal may be a substitute).

Blend together 1/4 avocado, one tbsp. of grapefruit (pulp & juice), one tbsp. of cornmeal (or oatmeal), and 1/2 tsp. lemon juice.

Make sure to scrub or smear it onto your face in a circular motion, ensuring it spreads evenly.

You might resemble Shrek, but don’t fret, even he has amazing skin.

Leave the face mask on for 10 to 15 minutes, rinse off with warm water, and pat-dry your face with a clean towel.

I always make sure to do this two to three times a week before bed—it works miracles.

Mask for oily skin

The ingredients include Besan (gram flour), plain yogurt, and your standard honey.

Mix together the two tsp. of besan, three tsp. of yogurt, and 1/4 tsp. of honey.

Once mixed thoroughly, apply evenly on your face. It should stay on for a minimum of five minutes.

You may receive amazing results if you maintain it as a routine.

There is also the option of making it into a weekly facial instead, and this is done by leaving it on for 20 minutes once a week.

What’s great about this mask is it acts as a cleanser and hydrater. Boom!

That means it removes dirt and make-up residue, which also reduces the oil on your skin.

Facial MaskMask for dry skin

It is an easy mixture of egg whites and lemon juice.

By blending these two mixtures and rubbing it into your skin, you’re left with a silky smooth mask that will harden.

It shrinks pores, tightening your face like a back-alley facelift.

Leave the mask on for a maximum of 30 minutes and just rinse off with warm water.

This is used to tighten pores and remove black heads, while simultaneously hydrating your skin, which helps maintain the youth and elasticity in your skin.

Mask for acne

When I see a breakout coming on, I whip out the lemon and almond oil and get to work, mixing the juice of one lemon with 1/4 cup of almond oil, creating a smooth applicator.

This mask exfoliates and moisturizes and you can feel it working almost instantly.

In roughly 10-minutes time, rinse with warm water and gently dry with a squeaky-clean towel.

After any facial, it is always recommended to moisturize with a cream complementary to your skin type.

No matter the harsh seasonal conditions coming your way, these facials may help these undesirable epidermal conditions stay away.
