Giving yourself a facial is bliss, isn’t it! Putting on a natural face mask, letting the good ingredients pamper your skin while you read a magazine or listen to your favorite music or just lay on the couch relaxing, enjoying the much-needed break!
There are loads of natural face masks (and other, synthetic masks too, of course) on the market, but if you want to get crafty and perhaps save some money you might want to try making a homemade beauty mask. I’ve put together a list of two of the best and easiest hydrating formulas I know and I hope you find something suitable for you there!
Homemade face mask for dry skin – Apricot and Honey beauty mask
The honey in this face mask for dry skin will help to heal any irritations and the almonds will leave your skin feeling silky and soft. The apricots are full of vitamins and will smoothen the skin.
2 ripe apricots
2 tablespoons honey (liquid)
2 tablespoons finely ground almonds
What to do:
Peel the apricots, remove the stone and mash them with a fork
Mix the mashed fruit with the honey and the almonds
Massage the mask into your clean skin (face and neck), but keep away from the eyes
Put your feet up and relax!
Remove the mask after about 20-25 minutes by rinsing it off with warm water.
DIY face mask for dry sensitive skin – Avocado & Oatmeal beauty mask
This is one of the best and easiest avocado face masks I know for anyone with dry and sensitive skin, as it is very moisturizing and helps to restore damaged skin due to the beneficial oils of avocado and the healing properties in oatmeal.
