DIY Face Mask – Various Types To Consider
It’s easy to skip your skin care routine. To those that do it often, I think you’re absolutely crazy. The reason I say that is simple, some treatments are so economical and easy to do in the comfort of your home that I consider those who don’t do it basically lazy. Now, I’m not here to call you names so I’ll just cut to the chase. Here are some things that you can consider doing this week, especially if you’re interested in keeping your skin looking great.
Face Masks For People With Oily Skin
Here are a few of the various types of face masks that you can consider trying out in the comfort of your own home. Trust me, doing something is better than nothing.
If you’re sporting oily skin, then you might want to give an egg white and honey mask a try. This type of face mask is going to help you tighten your skin up, improve your tone and do so without adding more oil to the mix. Most people like to incorporate something natural that can absorb the oils in your skin like oatmeal. This ingredient also makes for a really good exfoliator.
Another popular mask for oily skin is the apple lemon mask. Doing a simple Google search will help you find various apple and lemon face masks. The reason this type of mask works is due to the acid in the fruits. They close your pores up and force your skin to produce less oil.
You might also want to try the kaolin clay face mask. Like all clay masks, this type of clay will help reduce the amount of oil on your skin.
Dry Skin Face Masks
Having trouble battling dry skin issues? If so, then you might want to look into a DIY face mask specifically meant for people with dry skin. The good news for you if you do have dry skin is that there are lots of options out there for you. The one that I typically turn to is the avocado and honey mask. This mask is awesome if you’re looking to better retain moisture levels. The honey will help with that and the avocado oil will help fix those pesky dry areas of your skin.
Want to know what dry skin doesn’t stand a chance against? Greek yogurt! If you’re into moisturizing your skin and you like greek yogurt then you might consider using this ingredient in a mask. The calcium, probiotics and other ingredients are great for your skin.
Another commonly used dry skin mask ingredient is, believe it or not, grapefruit. This is used in scrubs more than anything and it makes your skin look better than you’ll ever imagine. Some people like to also incorporate strawberries and other fruits into their face masks. Again, the strawberry helps with the exfoliating as well as the moisturizing.
Masks For Sensitive Skin
Do you have sensitive skin? Well, then welcome to the club. Lots of people suffer from this condition. They are constantly dealing with skin issues and in order to battle them, they frequently apply what’s known as an oatmeal mask. This mask literally only consists of cooked oatmeal (roughly half a cup) and a few tablespoons of plain yogurt. This helps reduce inflammation and calm your skin.
Another option is using a mask that consists of cucumber and yogurt. These ingredients are awesome for your skin as they help reduce the inflammation. Not to mention, the cucumbers contain something called caffeic acid which is great for reducing swelling.
DIY Face Masks For Acne
Having issues with acne? If so, then you might want to try working in some super ingredients listed below. One of the best ingredients that people incorporate into their acne face masks is aloe vera. It’s great for those dealing with pain, scars, pigmentation, and inflammation.
Other ingredients that people like to incorporate in their acne masks are activated charcoal, turmeric, and cinnamon. They incorporate them for many reasons that most don’t try and understand. Instead, they just do use them and see the results of doing so. What are the results? Inflammation reduction, antibacterials, antioxidants, unclogged pores, and oil reduction. People often incorporate grapefruit into their acne face masks as well as pomegranate. If you’re an essential oil fan, then maybe tea tree is the ingredient for you.
Anti Aging DIY Face Masks
Looking to reverse or slow the aging process? Great, then all you need is a DIY face mask to help slow down the process. There are some amazing ingredients that people incorporate into their personal face mask creations. Some of these ingredients are those that you’d never even think of using. For example, some people make their own wine face mask. Yes, you hear that correctly, I said wine! Consumers are mixing grapes, wine, clay, and honey to make a mask that slows the aging process right down!
People are also incorporating flaxseed and honey because of the anti aging properties that they both exert. Another hot ingredient for these anti aging do it yourself masks is pineapple. I guess it’s all because of the bromelain enzyme which is abundant in the fruit. It helps peel your skin, remove wrinkles as well as aging spots.
Dark chocolate is also used to help fight wrinkles, along with pomegranate, yogurt, and coffee. As you know, coffee contains caffeine and it’s a winner when it comes to removing toxins and keeping your skin looking young.
