Don’t want to splurge at the Spa? why not spoil yourself at home without breaking the bank? Skin tends to be patchy and dry during the Fall season, which is why we are here to help you pamper yourself with these simple, homemade facial masks. The secret to great skin is in your kitchen.
1) Banana facial masks
You can use banana as an all-natural, homemade facial masks that moisturizes your skin. Mash up a medium-sized banana into a smooth paste, gently apply it to your face and neck, leave it in for 15-20 minutes. Rinse off with cold water. You may also try 1/4 cup plain yogurt, 2 tablespoons of honey, and 1 medium banana. End result? Fresh and soft looking skin.
2) Vinegar facial masks
If you have sensitive skin, it is best to skip this one. Using vinegar as a skin toner dates back to the time of Helen of Troy. After washing your face, mix 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar with 2 cups of water as a finishing rinse to cleanse and tighten your skin.
3) Milk facial masks
This one is my personal favorite. Great for any type of skin. Milk is great as a softener and it is anti-oxidant. Make a mask by mixing 1/4 cup powdered milk with enough water to form a thick paste. Evenly coat your face with the mixture, let dry completely, then rinse with warm water. Your face will feel refresh and rejuvenated.
4) Yogurt facial masks
To cleanse your skin and tighten your pores, slather some plain yogurt on your face and let it sit for about 15 to 20 minutes. For a revitalizing facial mask, mix 1 teaspoon plain yogurt with the juice from 1/4 slice of orange, and 1 teaspoon aloe. Leave the mask on for 5-10 minutes before rinsing off.
5) Egg facial masks
For a little pampering, grab an egg from your refrigerator. If you have dry skin that needs moisturizing, separate the egg and beat the yolk. Oily skin takes the egg white, to which a bit of lemon or honey can be added. For normal skin, use the entire egg. Apply the beaten egg, relax and wait 30 minutes, then rinse. You’ll love your new fresh face.
