Our face is sensitive and it demands undivided attention during winter months. With cold winds brushing against our skin and sweeping away moisture, it is very essential to stay hydrated and rejuvenated to retain radiance. To keep your skin hydrated through the dry weather, opt for facials with ingredients that provide moisturizing properties. Aloe Vera mixed with honey is a great combination that works wonders on the skin, especially in winters.
Homemade facial masks provide essential nutrients to dull, lifeless, and aging skin, which unclog pores and hydrate facial skin, providing the crucial moisture needed to combat aging and dry skin.
Banana Facial Masks- Purée a medium-sized ripe banana into a smooth paste and gently apply it to your face and neck. Let it set for 10 to 20 minutes, rinse it off with cold water. Another popular mask recipe calls for 1/4 cup of plain yogurt, 2 tablespoons of honey, and 1 medium banana.
Vinegar Facial Masks- Vinegar works as an excellent skin toner. After you wash your face, mix 1 tablespoon of vinegar with 2 cups of water as a finishing rinse to cleanse and tighten your skin. You can also create a homemade facial mask by mixing 1/4 cup of vinegar with 1/4 cup of water. Gently apply the solution to your face and let it dry.
Milk Facial Masks- Make a mask by mixing 1/4 cup of powdered milk with water to form a thick paste. Thoroughly coat your face with the mixture, let it dry completely and rinse with warm water. Your face will instantly feel fresh and rejuvenated.
Oatmeal Facial Masks- Combine 1/2 cup of warm water and 1/3 cup of oatmeal. After the water and oatmeal have settled for 2 to 3 minutes, mix 2 tablespoons of plain yogurt, 2 tablespoons of honey, and 1 small egg white. Apply a thin layer of the mask to your face, and let it sit for 10 to 15 minutes; rinse with warm water.
