Face masks may be the buzzword these days! But while the festivities are on, why not opt for the facial masks of the other kinds too… the ones that will add up glow to your faces. And even if you keep your face hidden behind the face-masks of the cloth variety, healthy skin is always welcome right! Moreover, if you haven’t had the time to pamper yourself at the salon, why not try these quick ones at home for that instant glow:
Papayas are always in season and the perfect ingredient for your mask. If you’re trying to get rid of sunspots, uneven skin tone or pigmentation, here’s what you’ve got to do. Mix mashed papaya with a tablespoon of honey and apply it on your face. Keep it for around 15 minutes and wash it off with lukewarm water. Pat your face dry and moisturise it well.
Minion Face Mask
We call it the minion face mask because it is made of ‘ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-na-na – banana’.
This mask is suitable for all skin types and assures a soft and natural glow. To get that healthy skin, mix half a mashed banana with a tablespoon of honey. Apply the mask on your face and leave it for two minutes. Wash your face with lukewarm water, moisturise, and feel the difference.
The cucumber mask is best for dry and rough skin. Cucumber’s cooling components seep through the skin and give a softer skin. You have to put together half a grated or pureed cucumber or cucumber juice with a teaspoon of sugar or jaggery powder, a quarter cup of milk, and a tablespoon of honey.
The mask provides deep hydration and divine fragrant skin.
Want to get rid of tired-looking skin? Try this zesty lemon mask. Juice a lemon and combine it with a tablespoon of sugar and a tablespoon of olive oil. Rub the mask gently across your skin. It will exfoliate your skin and remove dead skin cells to achieve a refreshed, hydrated, fresh, and healthier-looking skin.
A turmeric or haldi mask can treat the darkened areas of your skin like dark circles, uneven skin tones, and so on. Turmeric mixed with raw honey and massaged on the face can help lighten darkened areas of the skin and also de-tan.
