It is not possible for us to spend hours in the beauty salon every time we need an instant glow, say, right before an office party or a blind date. So we have here three different face masks that you can easily make at your home and be pleasantly surprised with their magnificent results.
Here Are 5 Homemade Face Masks For Instantly Glowing And Tight Skin
1. Chocolate Mask
As yummy as it sounds to your pallet, this face mask is great for your skin too. It works best for dry skin. For a chocolate mask, you need 3 table spoons of cocoa powder, 1 table spoon cream, 2 table spoons honey, and a quarter cup of milk. Mix all of these to form a thick paste. Apply evenly on your face and neck. Leave it on till it dries completely and then rinse with cold water. Pat dry. The milk in it reduces pigmentation while cocoa reduces wrinkles in addition to being rich in anti- oxidants. Cream deeply moisturizes your skin and honey heals acne and tightens pores.
2. Almond- Saffron Mask
A humble almond is such a blessing to your skin and hair. Almonds are powerful moisturizers and help in exfoliation. In addition they are rich in anti oxidants, proteins and omega 3 fatty acids. Soak a handful of these versatile nuts in some milk that has saffron added to it, over night. Then make a paste out of it, and apply before going to bed on your face and neck. Leave it on overnight. Wake up and lightly scrub it while rinsing off. Voila! Say hello to a brand new porcelain skin! You can make a lot of paste and store it in a jar in the refrigerator. Do this every alternate night to get baby soft and smooth skin. The saffron helps lighten your skin tone and also fights tan. All skin types can use this mask, but use it less often if you have oily skin.
3. Lemon – Honey Mask
A great savior for oily skin, this mask has multiple benefits. Take equal quantities of lemon juice and frozen honey and mix well. Apply on face and neck in circular motion and leave for 10 minutes. Rinse off and pat dry. Do this once a week. Lemon juice brightens the skin and fights wrinkles, while frozen honey tightens the skin and exfoliates.
4. Banana Mask
This is a great mask for all skin types. Mash half a banana in a bowl and add one table spoon of orange juice and runny honey, each to it. Mix it well and apply on your face and neck. Leave it on for 15 minutes and rinse with cold water. Do it twice a week to see reduced acne and increased glow in your skin. Both banana and orange help in reducing acne. While orange is rich in anti oxidants and works on tan, banana on the other hand fights pre mature ageing of the skin.
5. Rose Mask
If you have a combination skin (one that is oily in the T-zone and dry in the rest of the face), this face mask is a great option, as it balances the oily and dry areas of the skin. All you need is a couple of rose petals, rose water, yogurt and the magic ingredient used in most of the face masks, honey! Soak in a couple of rose petals overnight and crush them. To this add, 2 tablespoons of rose water, 1 tbsp of yogurt and 1 tablespoon of runny honey. Apply on face and neck and leave for 10 minutes. Rinse to find a glowing balanced skin.
So go on and wow your colleagues or that date of yours without having to go to the parlor. If you make this a routine, you will see a marked improvement in your skin health over a month. You owe it to your skin. Shine on!
