As we like summer, the hot sunny days are nothing but annoyance for our soft skin. It is often dehydrated, becomes oily and easily irritated. This gorgeous chocolate tan may look good on your skin, but it also increases the risk of skin aging and pigmentation issues. To avoid all these unpleasant things, you need extra skin care that does not come from a salon containing a mixture of unknown chemicals. With a wealth of seasonal fruits and vegetables, you can prepare your own 100% natural face masks that keep your skin healthy, fresh and moisturized. Here are 10 homemade masks that you should try this summer.
Avocado + coconut + honey
There's a reason celebrities like Jessica Biel and Victoria Beckham love this mask so much – it's an ideal choice to restore your skin after a hot summer's day! Avocado gives your skin all the nutrients it needs, and makes the mask soft and creamy, while coconut provides the necessary hydration. Honey helps restore scaly and damaged skin.
Preparation: Take 1 half avocado, grind it into a creamy texture, then add 1 tsp. of coconut oil, and add 2 tbsp. of honey. Mix, place on face for 15 minutes, allow to dry and rinse with warm water.
Honey + yogurt + rose water
Some face masks look and smell so delicious that it's hard not to eat them directly from your face. But stay strong! This yogurt mask has more benefits than we can count. The yogurt itself is the best remedy for sunburned skin that needs moisture, while rosewater reduces oiliness and leaves the skin looking fresh and radiant.
Preparation: Take 2 tbsp. of yogurt, mix 1 tbsp. of honey and another 1 tbsp. of rose water. Mix everything thoroughly and put it on your face for 20 minutes. Wash and enjoy your rejuvenated skin!
Papaya is not only delicious, but also has anti-aging properties and removes dead skin cells. It will moisturize dry skin and control its oil balance. The best part – it's a one-ingredient mask! Papaya is so cool that you do not need anything in the mix.
Preparation: Take some pieces of papaya, crush them into a paste and place them on your face for 15 minutes. You can cover the mask with a few pieces of cotton so that it stays on your face.
Strawberry + lemon + yogurt + honey
If you have problems with open pores, use this yoghurt-based vitamin-packed mask to get your skin back to normal. Lemon tightens the skin powdery, while strawberries are a great help for outbreaks. Yogurt has a cooling effect on your skin.
Preparation: Mix 4-5 strawberries, add 1 tbsp. of honey, 2 tbsp. of fresh lemon juice and 1 tbsp. of natural yogurt. Carefully mix everything, apply to the face and let it dry for about 10-15 minutes. Wash and enjoy!
