If your skin has become dull because of the toxic products you use, it’s high time that you ditch those commercial beauty items and try these all natural homemade face masks for soft and clear skin.
With all natural homemade face masks, you get a wide variety of ingredients to choose from. The most important thing is that you get to customize the mask with the quality ingredients that suit your skin. But with commercial products, you can only get what they are willing to give you. Moreover, these face masks are 100% natural; that is, there are fewer chances that your skin might react adversely to any ingredient. To make your skin look younger and brighter, apply any of the following face masks every once in a while.
1. Honey and Lemon Homemade Face Mask For Clear Skin
In a bowl, add two tablespoons of honey and a tablespoon of lime juice. Mix the ingredients and apply it on your face. Leave the eyebrows and the areas below and above your eyes. Keep it on for 5-10 minutes and then rinse it off with lukewarm water. Remember always to pat dry your face after washing it as being harsh on your facial skin can get you scratches and scars.
Note: Lemon is acidic and can harm your skin. Therefore, we advise you to check it on a small patch before applying it all over the face. Also, never add lemon beyond the said amount.
2. Almond Oil, Honey, and Oatmeal Face Mask
Both almond oil and honey have major healing properties, which can open up your skin pores and nullify excess oil and dirt. Take a small bowl and mix two tablespoons of oatmeal, and one tablespoon each of honey and almond oil. Mix it well until you get a sticky and thick paste. Add a few drops of water if clumps arise. Apply and massage it on your skin for a few minutes with your fingertips. Remember to do the massage in an upward circular motion and with light pressure. Once done massaging, rinse it off with cold water.
3. Turmeric, Honey, and Milk Homemade Face Mask For Clear Skin
The benefits of turmeric are not hidden from anyone. Since ancient times, people have been using honey for its anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties. Turmeric, when combined with honey, can do wonders for your skin and can help you get rid of acne and pimples. Mix one part each of raw honey, turmeric, and milk in a small bowl. You can substitute milk with yogurt, and the amount depends on the texture of your mask. You need to obtain a fine paste that can stick to your face. Rinse off any makeup from your face and apply this mask and let it sit for 10-15 minutes or until it dries completely. Once it dries, wash it off with running water and pat dry your face.
