After a long stressful day of classes, studying and homework I love to unwind in my bed while watching Netflix and eating apples but to make it even better I like to make a face mask. By making my own face mask I know exactly what is going onto my face, unlike store bought masks that can contain parabens and artificial ingredients. Also by making my own face masks I am able to customize them to benefit my skin type. Here are three of my favorite face masks…
Dry Skin Remedy:
-1/2 soft avocado
-2 tablespoons hot water
-1 tablespoon honey
To make the mask:
Start by mashing up the avocado. Then, dissolve the honey in the warm water. Combine all the ingredients. Apply to your face with your fingers or a brush and let sit for 10-20 minutes.
An avocado face mask can help dry skin and add moisture because it contains vitamins A and E, both of which have anti oxidant properties and help repair damaged skin. The benefits of using an avocado face mask is that it can penetrate deeper layers of the skin and create longer-lasting moisturizing effects compared to lotions and other products.
Honey is also added to the mask because it is naturally an antibacterial, so it’s great for acne treatment and prevention. Honey is also great for moisturizing and adding a glow to the skin.
Glowing Skin Scrub:
-2 teaspoons of honey
-1/2 of a real lemon
-Teaspoon of Sugar
To make the mask:
Combine all ingredients and apply to face. Let sit for 5 minutes then use as a scrub and wash off. It’s super simple.
Just like the first mask there are tons of skin benefits of using honey. It is a gentle cleanser that helps clear acne. It also brightens the skin and adds a glow! The lemon juice is also super beneficial. It’s acidic property
helps lighten dark spots and even skin tone. The sugar helps get an even bright skin tone while removing dead skin cells for softer, smoother skin!
Blackhead Removal Mask:
How to make:
Place 1 tbsp. unflavored gelatin powder in a microwave-safe bowl. Add the 1 1/2 tbsp. milk to the powder and mix with a spoon. Heat the gelatin mixture for 10 seconds in the microwave. Coat your face with the gelatin.
This mask works just like the Biore Pore Strips. It helps remove black heads and clear pores.
