Everyone loves a good DIY recipe to look fresh, pampered, and bright. That’s why home-made face masks are so great and can giving salon facials a run for their money. If you want to be in on the secret to getting great skin with just a few kitchen ingredients--then read on for some easy as winking recipes that will transform your skin!
Besan and tomato paste
Skin type: Greasy, dull, or prone to breakouts
Gram flour or besan works as a soap and scrubs the skin clean. Mix this flour with tomato juice, and the resultant paste will be a godsend for your acne-prone skin. Besan sloughs off dead skin and removes oil, while tomato brightens the skin--making this a great exfoliator for oily or combination skin. If you spend a lot of time outdoors braving pollution and the scorching sun, then give this mask--guaranteed to make you glow--a chance.
To make the pack, just mix some besan with pure, fresh tomato juice (even pulpy is fine) and apply it on your face for 20 minutes. When dry, gently rub off the mask with a little bit of water, finishing with a proper rinse.
Oatmeal and honey soothing masque
Skin type: Sensitive, damaged, and dry
Exfoliating or using harsh face packs on sensitive skin is a HUGE gamble. Which is why fragrance-free, gentle products that don’t aggravate the skin are really important. Enter: oatmeal which is soothing in nature, and when combined with the healing nourishment of honey, can transform sensitive skin types.
Combine honey with coarsely-crushed oatmeal until a paste-like consistency is achieved. Apply this concoction on your face, leaving it on for 15 to 20 minutes. While washing off, gently scrub the skin to remove the flakes.
Oatmeal is a gentle exfoliant that also reduces inflammation, while honey--a humectant--helps seal in moisture.
Yogurt, honey and rose skin relief
Skin type: Irritated, patchy, dull, or flaky
Rose-enriched skincare helps hydrate the skin and gives it a blushed glow; while honey reduces patchiness and dullness. The real star of this mask, however, is yogurt. It contains lactic acid that rejuvenates and replenishes dull, dead skin. Yogurt proteins also help strengthen the skin’s barrier, making it look healthier.
To make this mask, combine thick yoghurt with honey and crushed fresh, food-grade rose petals. Apply it to cleansed skin and leave it on till it dries. Wash off to reveal radiant, luminous skin free from discolouration.
Tightening tea mix
Skin type: Dull, greasy and lifeless
Did you know that green tea and chamomile tea leaves can be mashed and blended into a refreshing antioxidant face pack? Next time you’re enjoying a cuppa, save the used tea bags. Once dry, grind the tea leaves till you achieve a powder consistency. Mix with water, and apply the mask on cleansed skin. Wash off to say hello to fresh, rejuvenated skin. Tea leaves helps de-puff skin whilst tightening it--resulting in purified, oil-free and revived skin.
Yogurt and wine skin flush
Skin type: Dull and damaged
Yogurt has proteins and lipids that smoothen out coarse and dry skin, making it soft. Wine, on the other hand, is a famous antioxidant--but usually too expensive to apply. So, if you have wine that has been lying around for too long, you can use it to make this pack. Since both the ingredients are acidic, they are closer to your facial skin’s pH than soapy cleansers that can strip the skin of oil barriers and nutrients.
Mix thick yoghurt with wine--adding the latter, one splash at a time to ensure the mixture isn’t very runny. Apply the masque all over your face, and wash off once dry.
