Here are 6 face masks you should try out depending on your needs.
1. Orange Mask
Not only do oranges make a healthy refreshing drink, the pulp you usually throw away can be used for a great face mask that’ll leave your skin glowing. Use the pulp on its own or mix it with honey, oatmeal & yogurt.
2. Cucumber Mask
Blend 1 cucumber & mix the paste with a little bit of yogurt to revitalise your skin. Make sure you don’t put too much yogurt in otherwise it’ll be too runny. The yogurt also helps for sunburn, so in summer this really comes handy.
3. Mint Mask
This homemade revitalising mask will not only refresh & cool your skin in the hot summer months but will clean it too. If you have blackhead & whitehead problems then this is for you. You’ll need half a cup of cucumber solids blended & strained. Put it into a saucepan, heat with some fresh water & then add your chopped mint leaves & heat some more to help the ingredients blend well. Leave the mask to cool down. Apply & leave for 15 mins before rinsing off with warm water.
4. Fruit Mask
This tropical mask is revitalising & the leftovers can be eaten. You need to mash 3 papaya slices, 2 mango slices & 1 pineapple slice. Add 1 tbsp of warm honey & you’re done. Leave the mask on for about 15 to 20 mins & rinse off with lukewarm water.
5. Strawberry Mask
This can be used as an all-natural astringent for people who have problems with big pores. Mash about 5 big strawberries & mix with 1 or 2 tbsp of honey. Leave on for 10 to 15 minutes(or even 30 mins if you want) & rinse off using a gentle circular motion. This helps exfoliate & soothe, while the honey helps soften & gives an instant glow.
6. Herbal Tea Mask
Herbal teas can be used for great masks. Use chamomile for nourishing, mint for revitalising, lavender for soothing & sage for deep cleansing. The process is pretty simple – just prepare the herbal tea as usual & leave to cool. Dip pads of cotton or cloth in it & then hold it on your face.
