Achieve Healthy and Glowing Skin with Homemade Facial Masks!
Who doesn’t want healthy, clean, and glowing skin? But with all the makeup, stress, air pollution, and chemicals that we’re exposed to daily, it can be challenging to achieve. That’s where facial mask treatments at home come in!
A homemade facial can keep your skin healthy, clean and glowing.
Different Facial Masks for Different Skin Types
The first thing you should know is what your skin type is.
Before we dive into the different facial mask recipes, let’s talk about skin types. Did you know that skin types are usually divided into three types: dry, oily, and mixed? Knowing your skin type will enable you to choose the best facial mask for it.
In this blog post series, I’ll be sharing with you the easiest, safest, and most natural steps to achieve healthy and naturally glowing skin.
A facial mask at home is an easy way to keep the skin healthy. It can be a part of a weekly beauty routine and gives you time to relax and take care of yourself.
Know Your Skin Type to Choose the Best Facial Mask
There are three main skin types: dry, oily and mixed.
Have you ever wondered what your skin type is? It’s easy to figure it out just by looking at your skin’s condition. If your skin is dry, flaky, and lacking radiance, then you likely have dry skin. On the other hand, if you’re prone to acne and blackheads, and your skin tends to be oily, then you have oily skin. And if your face has a balanced complexion with no visible signs of oiliness or dryness, then you most likely have a mixed skin type. Knowing your skin type is crucial when it comes to choosing the right skincare products and facial masks. So, take a closer look at your skin, and learn what it’s telling you about your skin type!
For each type of skin, we will use a different facial mask.
Relax and Take Care of Yourself with Facial Masks at Home
For an easy and relaxing beauty routine, you can use facial masks once or twice a week. And with the recipes I’ll be sharing, you can quickly mix them at home, and the process will take around 20 minutes from start to end.
But wait, if you’re not a fan of DIY, there are good quality brands out there that produce natural facial masks. Just make sure to read the ingredients list and buy the most natural ones you recognize.
Green, Pink, and Oatmeal Facial Masks for Different Skin Types
After making and using these homemade masks, I can honestly say that they are simple to prepare, natural and great for the skin!
It is important to test a small amount of the mask on your hand before you use it to make sure that there are no allergic reactions.
Now, without further ado, let’s get into the facial mask recipes!
Oily and mixed skin
For oily and mixed skin types, clay masks are the best choice. Clay has been used in beauty care for hundreds of years and is known for its highly absorbent properties, ability to cleanse toxins naturally, rich in minerals that nourish the skin, balance, and purify the skin, exfoliate dead skin cells, and reduce inflammation in acne.
Green clay is suitable for oily skin prone to blemishes. Mix one tablespoon of green clay with one to two tablespoons of water until you form a thick paste. Apply the mixture on your face with a clean makeup brush or your fingers, leave it to dry for 10-15 minutes, and rinse with warm water.
If your skin is oily and suffers from acne, you can add 1/2 teaspoon of olive oil and 3 drops of lemon to the mixture. The olive oil and lemon combination is gentle for the skin, and the lemon’s vitamin C can help heal the skin, reducing oil secretions and pimple-causing bacteria.
Mixed skin type
For mixed skin types, pink clay is ideal. Mix one tablespoon of pink clay with 1-2 tbsp of water until you form a thick paste. Apply the mixture on your face and leave it on for 10-15 minutes before rinsing with warm water. Apply face cream or organic coconut oil afterwards.
Lastly, for dry skin, oats are the best treatment. Mix one tablespoon of oats with a quarter cup of hot water and let it rest for five minutes. Add one teaspoon of honey and apply the mask to your face. Leave it on for five to ten minutes before rinsing with warm water. Apply a rich face cream afterwards.
