Did you know that your favorite Spa also makes their own face masks that they use to their customers? So, what you are getting is actually a homemade face mask, which is something you can also do for yourself.
Face masks are easy to make and most often than not, most of them does not require a lot of ingredients. So why get the same thing and pay more, if you can do your own face mask for home and enjoy a fresh, rejuvenated and clear skin without the pricey spa treatment?
To give you some tips on how to make really nice face masks, here are some face mask recipes that you might want to try, depending on the needs of your skin.
For Oily Skin
Oily skin can lead to more serious skin problems. This is because oil on the skin can catch more dirt that can cause bacteria build up, which will eventually lead to acne. So to prevent this, here’s a simple facial mask for oily skin that you can prepare at home.
– 2 tablespoons of Honey
– 2 tablespoons of oatmeal
– 2 tablespoons of lemon juice
Combine all three ingredients together, and achieve a paste like consistency. This amount is enough for one wash. Before washing your face with this mask, make sure that you wash your face with lukewarm water in order to open up the pores. Dry your face and gently apply the face mask on the entire face, but make sure to avoid the eye area.
For best results, let the facial mask sit on your skin for 10 minutes before rinsing it off with lukewarm water again.
One of the main reasons why people go for Spas is to get rid of the most common skin problem, which is acne. If your skin is troubled with acne, here is a very effective facial mask that you can use.
Oatmeal is a well known ingredient in making beauty products for the skin because of its natural way of exfoliating the skin without leaving it dry and rough. Honey on the other hand is a natural antibacterial that can kill bacteria causing acne. Mix a small amount of oatmeal into several tablespoons of honey.
Wash your face before applying the facial mask, and let it sit for a few minutes. Dry your skin and make sure to use a soft towel to prevent tiny scratches on your skin’s surface.
These two facial masks are always in demand in most spas. One treatment of a facial mask can be very expensive, so knowing how to make them at home will really help you save more.
Apply the facial mask at least twice a week, and see the difference it can give to your skin. Pampering yourself this way is going to be more enjoyable, because you are actually getting more facial mask treatments without having to spend more.
