I am a woman who has a huge amount of problems with facial skin. To get rid of skin problems, my familiar beautician told me to do a facial mask at home. I helped, now I will tell you which of them are the best.
Oh, face masks, let us count most popular facial mask types: 1. in sheet form, 2. in splash form, 3. in clay form, and now we're adding 4. in DIY form, because to be honest—i'm sometimes lazy. Really lazy. Which means i don't have the desire (or the money) to run to Sephora every week for new face masks.
So, when i want to give my skin some TLC, but i can't bring myself to leave the vicinity of my kitchen, I'm using these mask recipes.
Cocoa Dream Hydration Mask
There are three shining stars in this yummy, fully edible mask, and they all work wonders for your face. Avocado is extremely hydrating, cocoa is an excellent skin-soothing antioxidant, and honey is antibacterial and anti-inflammatory.
1. Mash one quarter of an avocado in a small bowl.
2. Stir in one tablespoon cocoa powder and one tablespoon honey, mashing and mixing well.
3. Apply the mask to your clean, dry skin for 10 minutes.
4. Wash off with warm water, then moisturize as per usual.
Nourishing Honey Mask
Honey is a natural antibacterial, which makes it a perfect base for acne-fighting masks. Nutritional yeast is also excellent for treating acne, as it's rich in B-vitamins that help calm the skin barrier, especially if you're breaking out around your period.
1. Brew one cup of chamomile tea with two tea bags and let cool completely.
2. In a tiny bowl, stir together one tablespoon of manuka or raw honey, and one teaspoon of nutritional yeast.
3. Add just enough chamomile tea to the bowl to create a thicker paste that's still runny enough to spread across your skin, but not too watery.
4. Apply a thin layer to your face and let sit for 20 minutes.
5. Rinse off and pat dry. Moisturize afterward!
