You don’t have to spend a lot of money for a good face mask! Trust me, I know sometimes it seems good skin care products are to pricey and just not worth the time! But what If I told you there was a way to make your own skin care products for half the price?
Honey and Oat Face Mask
This is one of my personal favorites because it fits all skin types, the products are natural and its very simple to make! First, you start out with two tea spoons of oats. You can use any brand Quaker oats would probably be your cheapest route but Avenno would be the best brand for your skin. Next you just need to 2 teaspoons of honey, mix all of this together. Let the mixture rest for 5 minutes and then apply to your face. Make sure you put your back and out of the way so the mixture does not get stuck in your hair. Leave the mask on over night. In the morning just simply wash it off and see the results right there!
Milk Cream and Lemon Face Mask
I know this sounds strange but for those out there with dry skin, this mask can do wonders. For this mask you first need to get 1 teaspoon of heavy whipping cream. Now I am not talking about whip cream from a can I’m talking about HEAVY whipping cream. I recommend Organic Valley Heavy Whipping Cream. This can be found at any grocery store. Next you need 1/4 lemon juice this could be any kind however, I always recommend going for the organic route because it is is better for your skin. Mix both ingredients together, leave the mask on over night making sure you have your hair back so there isn’t a mess the next morning. I know these ingredients sound strange; however, the heavy whipping cream is helping moisturize your face while the lemon juice is toning your complexion.
Banana Face Mask
This is another simple to make mask and this one helps oily skin! All you need is one ripe banana, you can keep ripe bananas in the freezer to preserve them if need be. Next you will need 2 teaspoons of honey (preferably organic) and lastly one teaspoon of lemon or orange juice. Mash the banana up and mix the honey in next add the lemon or orange juice whichever you decided to go with. Apply to your face and let it sit for only 15 minutes, the banana helps control the oil while the juice tones your face.
