3 DIY Dry Skin Masks
If dry skin is a problem, you don’t have to suffer any longer. Give your skin a much needed moisture boost with face masks you can make right in your own kitchen. You likely already have most of the ingredients on hand. Not only are these DIY face masks good for your skin, they actually taste and smell good too.
Prep Your Skin
Before you use any mask, cleanse your skin to remove any makeup and dirt. You want your skin clean to avoid clogging your pores. The masks will be able to penetrate better with freshly cleaned skin.
Avocado And Honey Mask
This mask is incredibly simple. All you need is two natural moisturizing ingredients – a fresh avocado and honey. Start by cutting the avocado in half and mashing it into a pulp in a bowl. Stir in a quarter cup of honey. Make sure the honey is mixed in well.
Apply the mixture to your face and leave on for 10-15 minutes. Rinse with cool water.
If you don’t have any honey on hand, you can use a whole avocado instead. Leave on your face for up to 15 minutes. It doesn’t work quite as well, but it does work.
Banana And Honey Mask
This mask might just become dessert if you don’t use it all. Gather the following three ingredients and mix well:
· Half of ripened banana (riper makes it easier to mix)
· ½ cup of plain yogurt
· 1 tablespoon of honey
Apply the mixture to your face and leave on for 15-20 minutes. Rinse well with cool water.
Avocado And Carrot Mask (Vegan)
This mask does double duty to help fight aging and dry skin. It’s a little harder to make, but well worth it, especially after you see the results. Start by gathering the following ingredients:
· 1 peeled and de-stemmed carrot (you can also use two well ripened baby carrots)
· Half of an avocado
· ½ tablespoon of coconut or extra virgin olive oil
· 1 teaspoon of lemon juice
Mash the carrot and avocado and mix together. If they’re not well ripened, you may need to use your blender. Next, add in all of the other ingredients and mix well. Spread over your face and leave on for 15-20 minutes. Rinse your face with warm water.
All three of these masks are tasty treats for your dry skin. Use these once a week along with your regular moisturizer and forget about pesky dry, flaky skin.
