Homemade Facial Masks

There is no need to pay tons of money to a fancy spa just to get a facial. With these effective simple homemade facial masks, you can pamper yourself in the comfort of your home. The ingredients are easy to find, you probably have them sitting at home, and the procedure is very simple. The benefits of these masks are amazing.

Banana Facial Masks
Many factors such as sun overexposure, pollution, or diet can leave your skin dry and this affects how healthy your skin is. Dry skin can also lead to a premature old look of the face. A natural treatment for dry skin is banana. That's right. Banana is not only good for you, as it is a source of potassium, but it also moisturizes your skin and leaves it looking and feeling softer. Banana also protects the skin from free radicals and, thus, delays the aging process.
Banana is good for your skin for many reasons. It contains vitamin A, which gets rid of dark spots and blemishes, apart from evening out rough skin. It also contains vitamin B, which delays aging, lessens dryness, moisturizes and lightens skin. Banana is packed with vitamin E, which protects your skin by battling out free radical impairment, boosting the skin's sun-rays resistance, as well as preventing and diminishing appearances of wrinkles. Lastly, banana is famous for being a source of potassium, which gets rid of dry skin by moisturizing and hydrating skin cells.
This treatment consists of applying a banana paste to your face and neck. You can make this paste by mashing up a medium-sized banana. Let it set for 10 to 20 minutes and then rinse it off with cold water.
This is not the only banana mask out there. You can also use a medium banana and combine it with a quarter of a cup of plain yogurt and two table spoons of honey, and apply it to your face. Use the same procedure you used for the previous mask. Honey doesn't only moisturize your skin, but it is also a natural acne remedy.
Vinegar Facial Masks
Vinegar has been used as a skin toner for centuries. Mix 1 table spoon of apple cider vinegar with two cups of water and apply it to your face after washing it as you normally would. Use the vinegar mixture as a finishing rinse to cleanse and tighten your skin. Alternatively, you can mix a quarter of a cup of vinegar with the same quantity of water, then apply it to your face and let it dry.
Milk Facial Masks
Make a think paste by mixing enough milk powder with water. Coat yourself with the mixture, let dry completely and then rinse with warm water. This mask will leave your face feeling refreshed and moisturized.
Oatmeal Facial Masks
A traditional facial mask is made with oatmeal. Combine half a cup of hot mater water with 1/3 cup of oatmeal. Let the water and oatmeal settle for a couple of minutes. Then mix in 2 table spoons of plain yogurt with 2 table spoons of honey and one small egg. Apply the mask to your face and let it settle for 10 or 15 minutes. Afterwards, rinse the mask off with warm water.
Lemon Facial Masks
Mix the juice from one lemon with 1/4 cup olive oil or sweet almond oil and apply to it to your face. Let it sit for 10 to 15 minutes. This mask both exfoliates and moisturizes your skin. Lemon also helps remove stains from your skin but you must be careful with the sun. Make sure you rinse it off properly as sun exposure while having lemon on your face can cause stains.
Egg Facial Masks
Egg facial masks are a great moisturizer. After applying it on your skin, you'll feel you have a new fresh face. If you have normal skin, you can beat an egg, apply it to your face and let it sit for 30 minutes. Then you can rinse it off. If you have dry skin, then separate the egg and use the yolk instead. Meanwhile, if your skin is oily, you'll need the egg white and you need to mix it with lemon and honey for best results. Same produce applies.
