Staying at home means we have more time for self-care. I have really enjoyed making my own face masks at home. Here are a few face masks that I love to buy and make myself.
- For Glowing Skin – Homemade
1/4 tsp of Turmeric
1 tbsp Honey
1tbsp Gram Flour
This is a staple that many people love to use. It is so effective and works really well with my skin. I have tried many combinations of turmeric face masks and this one works the best for my skin.
Turmeric reduces hyperpigmentation and it contains anti-oxidant. Honey helps balance the skin and hydrates the skin. Gram Flour has lots of benefits for the skin that includes controlling excess sebum production, soothing inflamed skin and treating acne. I also like that this makes the face mask thicker, so it stays in place.
When I use this face mask, I wear a top that I don’t mind getting dirty – because it stains.
After using this mask, I wash my face and use toner to get rid of excess turmeric.
2. Hydrating Sheet Masks
These are some sheet masks that I like to use.
Hydrating sheet masks, unlike others, can be used as often as you need them. They restore hydration to the skin – I use mine for makeup or as part of my nighttime skincare routine.
I like the Dr Jart+ collection for specific skin concerns. My two favourite masks from them are the brightening solution and vital hydra solution. I love the Brightening Solution on days when my skin feels dull – to give it a boost. When I have very dry skin I use the Vital Hydra face mask along with hyaluronic acid for my nighttime skincare.
The Sephora Collection face masks are a staple, I love using them before applying my makeup.
The Dermal face masks are a game-changer. I use them at least once a week, I love the range that they have available.
3. For Super Soft Skin – Homemade
This face mask leaves my skin feeling very soft. You can store it for up to a week. I have only recently discovered it but it is amazing! Keep it on for 10 minutes until it is dry, rinse, and then apply your favourite moisturiser.
I have an Aloe Vera plant that I use I recommend buying one and using the aloe vera gel fresh. Just make sure to water it 😛
4. Clay Masks
Indian healing clay and apple cider make the best face mask. This face mask can be drying so you need to make sure to use a thick moisturiser. It draws all of the impurities out from my face and leaves it feeling amazing. This also lasts for a long time and it is easy to make. I have used lots of clay masks and this is definitely one of my favourites. Plus both of these products can be used for many other things.
I really like Sephora Clay masks because they don’t make my skin feel tight. I use this after a shower or when I have dry skin – so my skin does not dry out further but I still get all of the benefits.
That is all from me today, I hope you enjoyed reading this post!
