With Valentine’s day just around the corner, it’s time for us “GIRLS” to look our dapper best! Beyond question we all want a radiant, flawless skin without the price tag of the salon! Right? (Especially when you have to save up for a perfect Valentine gift/date-night!) Whether you are newly in love or are going out for your tenth Valentine’s Day dinner – it’s time to look and feel our “ageless-prettiest!”
Combat your usual winter skin woes such as dryness, redness and irritation and look your “gorgeous self” by whipping up one of these 3 DIY face masks using what you probably already have in your kitchen.
Avocado Face Mask
Ah, my favorite! For this all you have to do is – mash-up an avocado and combine it with a tablespoon of olive oil. The oil helps to extract toxins from the skin and the avocados are loaded with skin-loving vitamin E, which reduces inflammation – making your skin ultra-moisturized and refreshed. Apply a thin layer to your skin, leave for about 15 minutes, and rinse. This concoction is super rich – with plenty of nutrients, antioxidants, and essential fatty acids to really soften the skin and help fight wrinkles.
Oatmeal Face Mask
While winter skin is most often known for being dry and cracking, that doesn’t mean you should skip to exfoliate. The trick is to be kind! For this exfoliation mask – cook up a cup of oatmeal with milk and let cool. Mix in a spoonful of organic raw honey (which is antibacterial and healing), and if you’d like, a drop of almond oil (which is rich in vitamin E and antioxidants). Make sure it’s not too pudgy, but will actually stick to your face. Gently apply to skin and leave on for 10-15 minutes, and rinse. This blend is perfect for that overall “healthy – gleaming skin!”
Got a can of pumpkin lurking over in your fridge? Mix it up (about a cup) with a couple of tablespoons each of plain yogurt, honey and brown sugar. Apply evenly to skin and rinse off after about 15 minutes. Packed with zinc, antioxidants, and vitamins – pumpkins protect your skin from wrinkles and age spots as well as gently exfoliating the skin for a more radiant complexion. The yogurt fights bacteria and unclog pores and the healing power of honey will soothe the skin, guaranteeing a chemical-free GLOW!
Note – Make sure to cleanse beforehand and rinse thoroughly after each mask and of course, only use ingredients you know your skin isn’t irritated by. (Patch test works best!)
