In Need Of A Bit Of TLC? These Home Made Face Masks Are Ideal
Time to get raiding those presses.
These are the times we just wish we had an endless supply of Image sheet masks, because right now even the smallest bit of TLC is needed. While we might not be overflowing with many, many scrubs or clay masks, we can always revert to the kitchen press. Yep, to the kitchen press, for some natural ingredients to leave your skin feeling stunning. Plus, now that we have the time, we may as well indulge in a little DIY when it comes to self-care, right?
For Super Smooth Skin
If there’s one thing we all want (you know, bar the obvious right now) it’s smooth and silky skin. Grab yourself a bowl, and mix together one tablespoon of natural, plain yogurt, one tablespoon of honey and just one more tablespoon of turmeric. We all know the benefits of turmeric by now, let’s just say there are many, but one big thing is it’s pretty amazing for your skin.
The lactic acid in yogurt is ideal as a natural way to brighten your skin, while the honey adds moisture for that super smooth feel and finally, the turmeric battles any pigmentation that you may have. Pop it on your face for 10 to 15 minutes and let it work its magic.
For a Gorgeous Glow
Glowing skin is in, well, that healthy glow also has been. So if you feel like your skin is lacking, you’ve come to the right place. And because it’s packed with natural ingredients, those of us with sensitive skin can get in on the fun too. Rejoice! What you’ll need is one tablespoon of cacao powder, one-quarter of a papaya and just a little squeeze of Aloe Vera gel.
Aloe Vera is packed to the brim with vitamins (deep breath, A, C, E, B1, B2, B3, B6 and B12), while the papaya is a natural exfoliator in itself. Finally, the cacao powder, while it’s not a good substitute for hot chocolate, brightens and boosts circulation. Leave on for ten mins and rinse off with warm water, stunning.
To Combat Oily Skin
Oily skin gals, we feel you, there are few things worse than feeling as if your face is as slippery as the annual ice skating rink that pops up in Blanchardstown. What you’ll need is half an avocado and one-quarter of a blended cucumber. I don’t know about you, but I can almost feel how cooling this is already.
Cucumber is ideal for hydration, and is packed with vitamin C too, while the avocado aims to regulate oil production and help prevent any inflammation.
For Added Hydration
Feel as if your current moisturiser needs some extra help to hydrate your skin? Look no further. Take half of that leftover avocado from your breakfast, mix with a handful of oats and one tablespoon of honey. Honey is a wonder ingredient that adds moisture to the skin without feeling oily, while oats are known to have properties that nourish and calm the skin. The avocado will add some good fats to your skin, without adding to the oils that are already there. You’ll be the most hydrated gal in the land.
