Having a good skin care regimen is very important to make sure that your skin retains its tip-top condition. Normally, you’d rely on skin care products that are readily available on the market. If you’re tight on the budget or hoping for more natural means to get better skin, there are some home ingredients that you can use to concoct a face mask.
- Milk and oatmeal. Oatmeal is a great way to keep your skin moisturized while milk helps in keeping it in a lighter tone. If you mix both of these ingredients together into a pasty consistency, you can easily apply it to your skin. Careful not to rub it too much or else you’ll end up exfoliating your skin. Due to the high moisturizing factor of oatmeal and milk, this mask can aid in softening your skin.
- Instead of milk, you can also mix oatmeal with some water until it becomes damp. Add in some yogurt, honey and one egg white into the oatmeal. Mix these ingredients thoroughly and apply to your face. Honey is great in sorting out any inflammations while also being antibacterial. Egg white is high in protein thus aiding your skin to remain soft and supple. Apply to your face and let it sit for at least fifteen minutes before rinsing with cool water.
- You can also mix some mashed bananas with a bit of honey and apply to your skin. True, you might think this sounds like a dessert instead of a face mask but bananas can help keep your skin soft by locking in moisture. Leave the banana mask for at least 10 minutes before rinsing off.
