Pamper yourself with these DIY Face masks
Masks for dry skin
To create an ideal face mask for both dry and acne-prone skin, use avocados and honey. According to Cosmopolitan, fatty acids in avocados moisturize the skin. Honey also hydrates the skin and helps decrease inflammation caused by acne. If this sounds like the perfect mask for you, mix together half a mashed avocado and 1 tablespoon of honey. Leave it on your face for 10 to 20 minutes.
Masks for oily skin
According to Cosmopolitan, mixing 1 teaspoon of turmeric powder and 2 tablespoons of plain yogurt helps with skin hyperpigmentation. This is because turmeric has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties to help with discoloration and kill unwanted bacteria. Only leave this mask on your face for 10 to 15 minutes.
Keep your skin hydrated!
If you want healthy skin, one of the most important things you can do is to keep your skin hydrated. While moisturizing daily is important, drinking enough water is essential for healthy skin as well. Although winter has passed, our blog about keeping your skin hydrated applies in any season. Finding the right cleanser and moisturizer for your skin and using warm rather than steaming hot water in the shower are a few ways to keep your skin from drying out.
