LET'S TALK ABOUT HOMEMADE MASKS!


In 2018, my sisters introduced me to sheet masks! A year later, I'm really into making my own masks using ingredients available in your own supermarket. Face masks are great, not only for pampering ourselves but they add extra nourishment to our skin. Though sheet masks are convenient, what is another better way to packing our skin with essential ingredients?

Following the rules of a healthy diet, the least processed an ingredient is, the better it is. It's time to go back to the basics! Just for you, we're creating 3 easy to make face masks to combat dullness, dryness, and acne.

Other than its beneficial and healing properties, they're super safe for sensitive skin. Why? This is because you will know every ingredient that goes into your masks. The best part about these masks are that the ingredients are probably sitting in your kitchen right now!
1. Honey and Lemon Face Mask

While Vitamin C in the lemon brightens dull skin, the enzymes in the honey will help to keep the skin mosturized. Both ingredients contain tons of antioxidants which is also great for their anti-aging properties. 
Ingredients:
1 Tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice from organic lemon
3 Tablespoons organic honey
1 Tablespoon of water
How To:
Mix the three ingredients in a big bowl
Apply to a cleansed face
Leave it on for 15 to 20 minutes, and then rinse off with lukewarm water
Hydrate with your personal mosturizer before bed



2. 
Avocado and Oatmeal Face Mask

This mask is the one that I'll use on days I feel my skin needs more mosturizing properties. Avocado contains plenty of antioxidants and fatty acids that will provide deep moisture to the skin. It will also provide barrier against UV rays and free radicals. The ground oatmeal acts as a perfect exfoliator due to its texture. This mask is also suitable for you who might have dry and sensitive skin.

Ingredients:
1/2 of ripe, organic avocado, remove the skin and seed
2 tablespoons of ground oatmeal
2 tablespoons of honey
1 tablespoon of water
How to:
Mash the avocado until smooth
Add in the ground oatmeal, honey and water
Mix thoroughly into a thick paste
Apply the mask to a cleansed face
Gently massage in circular motions for around 3 minutes
Allow the mask to dry for 15 minutes before rinsing it off with lukewarm water
Hydrate with your own mosturizer after rinsing

3. Egg Whites and Yogurt Face Mask
If you're struggling with acne scars and clogged pores, you can definitely count on this mask. Egg whites are loaded with Vitamin B3 and Zinc. This will help to unclog your pores and fade acne scars. Yogurt contains lactic acid that gently exfoliates the skin and tightens it. It also provides great mosturizing benefits!
Ingredients:
2 tablespoons of Greek yoghurt (preferably organic)
1 raw egg white with no yolk
1 tablespoon of organic honey
How to:
Mix Greek yoghurt, raw egg white and honey together until it forms a paste with light consistency
Apply to a cleansed face
Leave on for 5 to 10 minutes
Rinse off with lukewarm water
Hydrate with your personal mosturizer after rinsing


Depending on your skin type, here are some night mosturizer I personally use (I have combination skin!). On days I'm feeling the need for extra, I'll go with The Ordinary Co.'s 100% Organic Rosehip Oil. Most days, I'll use Dr Jart+'s Cicapair Cream. If you have a go at these masks, have lots of fun and may you always have healthy, glowy skin!
