I am an avid user of face masks. There are some great ones on the market that can make visible differences on your skin in just a week. Personally, I tend to shy away from peel off masks. For starters, they hurt when you have to peel them off. Secondly, I don’t really think that they’re as beneficial as marketed. The good thing is that you don’t need to buy them for healthier skin. In fact, we think there are some great DIY face masks to try at home.
If you struggle with acne, you might want to try a cinnamon and honey mask. Like all face masks, make sure you apply it on a clean face. Mix about 2 tablespoons of honey and 1 teaspoon and spread it evenly across your face. Let it sit for about 15 minutes before you rinse it off. It’s simple and quick. What’s great is that most people have these two ingredients at home, so there’s no need to rush a store.
Baking soda, another common household item, can be used to make an exfoliating scrub. Exfoliating scrubs gets rid of dead skin and allows fresh, new skin to take its place. Mix 1 tablespoon of baking soda with water and oil. Rub it across your face and make sure you do it evenly to get rid of that dead skin. The days that I exfoliate are always the ones where I love my natural skin the most. It’s easy to overlook exfoliating when it comes to your skincare routine, but you shouldn’t.
The last face mask recipe I’m going to share with you includes 1 teaspoon of oatmeal, 1 egg white, 1 teaspoon of honey. Make sure to beat the egg white before mixing in the other two ingredients. Once all three items are properly mixed together, apply it on your face and leave it for 20 minutes before rinsing it off.
If you aren’t into making face masks at home, the Aztec Healing Clay on Amazon is great. It’s affordable, and you can really feel it to go to work on your skin as brings up all the oils and gunk lurking beneath your skin.
