10 Homemade Face Masks
Use Honey, Turmeric and Yogurt for Exfoliation
Directions: Wash face with hot water. Pat dry, then mix one part honey, one part turmeric, and one part yogurt into a smooth paste. Then spread the mixture across the face. Leave the mask on for 10 minutes then rinse with a little water. Turmeric can stain the skin a shade of yellow, so don’t leave the mask on for longer than 10 minutes.
The perfect mask is one that leaves your skin feeling nourished and refreshed, but also detoxified. Beauty mixologists love honey for its healing properties; turmeric provides anti-inflammatory benefits while yogurt helps slough away dead cells to prevent clogged pores from becoming blackheads or acne breakouts!
Yogurt is a great way to get an instant glow. The calcium in yogurt helps remove dead skin cells, which leaves your face looking and feeling smooth! It can also prevent premature aging because of its high levels of alpha hydroxy acid (which does wonders for clearing up acne-prone skin). Not only that but it also moisturizes well while preventing sun damage from occurring in addition with fighting off premature aging signs such as age spots.
Honey is a natural beauty product that can leave you with radiant skin and free from wrinkles. It has been known to have antimicrobial properties, which cleanse away any unwanted bacteria on the surface of our bodies while leaving us with healthy pores for longer periods.
Turmeric has been shown time and again as being able to reduce dark circles, discoloration due acne or scarring with its antimicrobial properties that fight off inflammation too!
Use Cucumber and Avocado for Oily Skin
Directions: Blend one quarter of a cucumber and mash half of an avocado. Mix together and apply to the face, including the areas around the eye area. Let sit for ten minutes, then remove with lukewarm water.
We all know the problems that a slick, oily face can cause with clogged pores and acne. The avocado cucumber mask is one of the most effective ways to treat oily skin. The healthy fats in Avocados are rich in nutrients that can deeply hydrate your face while also reducing inflammation, leaving it smooth and glowing!
Cucumber is a natural astringent, so it’s great for tightening and toning skin. It’s also a good source of antioxidants, which help to protect skin from free radicals that can cause damage. Finally, cucumbers are high in water content, so they help to hydrate and refresh skin.
Milk, Oatmeal and Cinnamon to be used for Anti-aging, Inflammation, Irritation, Skin Conditions and Dryness
Directions: Blend 1 tablespoon of oats, 2 tablespoons of milk, mix ingredients, then add a dash of cinnamon. Spread across the face and let sit for 20 minutes before rinsing with lukewarm water. Pat dry and enjoy.
Give your skin the treatment it deserves with this amazing mask made of three ingredients that are perfect for anyone who has sensitive skin. Oats, milk and cinnamon all possess properties similar to those found in stronger chemical masks but without any irritation or discomfort.
Milk contains lactic acid, which is a natural exfoliant, helping to rid your skin of dead cells and promote new ones. It also firms up the appearance of fine lines to give you that youthful complexion!
Milk is also an anti-inflammatory, so it can help calm any irritation or redness. Finally, milk contains alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), which are a type of chemical peel that helps improve skin texture and uneven skin tones.
Oatmeal is a natural humectant, meaning it helps to lock in moisture. Additionally, oatmeal can help to absorb excess oil and seal in moisture, making it an ideal ingredient for a face mask!
Oats are also rich in vitamins and minerals like zinc and selenium, which are important for healthy skin. And finally, oats contain powerful antioxidants that can help to protect the skin from damage caused by free radicals.
Cinnamon is the perfect way to get rid of dirt, oil and bacteria. It also helps reduce signs from aging while promoting new cell growth!

This mask is best when used 2-3 times per week to maintain a healthy glow and replenish nutrients depleted by natural skin damage and aging.
Your skin is your body’s first line of defense against the world. It protects you from pollution, dust and dirt while also providing a barrier that prevents germs in other parts on our bodies.
But what happens when this layer becomes damaged? We see inflammation which can lead to further cell death along with dull skin due not only natural aging but stress too! Olive oil & almonds are a perfect way to replenish nutrients needed by skin cells so they produce a beautiful natural glow again.

For Dry Skin and Anti-Aging Try Coconut Oil, Bananas, and Lemon Juice
Directions: Use an exfoliating scrub to wash away any dead skin cells and ensure that the skin is clean enough to absorb the nutrients. Mash ingredients in a bowl to form a paste. Add a few drops of warm water. Apply to dry skin and let sit for 15-20 minutes, then rinse with cold water. Pat dry with a towel.
