By taking care of our face and our skin in general, we improve our health and appearance. We increase our self-confidence and naturally feel beautiful.
Our face is repeatedly exposed to environmental factors, such as air pollution, sun, dust, germs and makeup products.
Especially after a difficult day, full of obligations and stress, fatigue is reflected on the face, as we feel dehydration, dryness or excessive oiliness and blocked pores.
We all know there is a lot we can do, but beyond cleansing, moisturizing products, sun protection, there are also “home remedies” full of beneficial properties!
With pure and simple ingredients, found in every kitchen, we can escape from the ordinary and try handmade masks for hydration, radiance, treating blemishes and acne, without chemicals, following easy steps.
Today, we will recommend you 2 very simple and very effective homemade face masks:
- Hydration with yoghurt, banana and honey
Banana is a natural moisturizing treatment for our skin! With vitamins A and C, it helps reduce dullness and dryness while being rich in antioxidants. The yogurt helps to tighten the skin and in combination with the banana offers deep hydration.
We will need:
1/2 ripe banana
1/2 cup full-fat yogurt
1 teaspoon of honey
Method of preparation – Application:
Mash the banana with a fork, add the rest of the ingredients and mix well until you have a homogeneous mixture.
We apply the moisturizing mask to our face and let it act for 10 minutes. Then we rinse with plenty of lukewarm water, followed by cold, to help close the pores of the skin.
- Cleansing with cinnamon and lemon
Cinnamon has antibacterial and antifungal properties that help cleanse the skin. Lemon has bleaching properties. Combined with the previous two beneficial ingredients we mentioned, we will make a deep cleansing mask:
Mix in a bowl 3 spoons of yogurt, 2 cinnamon sticks, half a banana and juice of half a lemon. Apply the mask to the face and leave until it dries (about 10-15 minutes). Then, rinse with plenty of warm water.
*** If you are allergic to any of the above ingredients, do not use them.
