5 DIY Natural Face Masks That Will Rescue Your Party-Tired Skin
Our skin has been through a lot the past 2 months — from wedding scenes to holiday partying, the pores have been pulled, poked, probed, and dusted with various chemicals, and now that it’s over, we can see how the holidaying has taken a toll on it. Besides fighting the vacation withdrawal symptoms, we’re also combating the repercussions of all the Christmas lunches, NYE drinks, and the endless amounts of smokey eyes, bold lips, and contoured cheekbones. In case you have been breaking out thanks to the countless chocolates you consumed, or are extremely sun burnt due to that awesome beach vacation you went on, natural remedies come to your skin’s rescue. And you can also make a girly spa day out of it with your besties — I am sure they’re all going to need some reviving, too.
We’ve picked out a few easy DIY natural face masks which you can make at the comfort of your home — your skin needs your attention this month…so DO NOT neglect it.
Skin That’s Breaking Out
Turmeric is a known household ingredient that works wonders on the skin. It acts like an antiseptic that reduces any inflammation caused by those pesky little spots, the yogurt calms the skin down, while moisturising it, and the lemon works great as a toner to reduce any scars left behind. Just make sure you use just a smidgen of turmeric, or else it will stain your skin and turn you a tad bit yellow.
This banana-honey mask is ideal for clearing up skin, leaving it soft, supple, and glowing. Banana consists of potassium and Vitamins E & C, all which enable and encourage glowing skin. Honey acts as a great healing ingredient, as well as a moisturiser which hydrates the skin while protecting it.
Skin That Needs Extra Care
This video breaks down 3 masks — which cleanse, exfoliate, and sooth and repair your damaged skin. The first one helps reduce inflammation, killing those germs that are blocking your pores and causing you to breakout. The papaya in the second mask helps remove dead skin cells, and the aloe vera gel in the third one cools your skin down, and soothes and repairs the damage — this is essential post sun exposure.
