Us mother’s have a tough time maintaining a beautiful skin with everybody and everyone needing our attention 24/7. On some days getting 6 hours of sleep seems like a miracle. And you are talking about maintaining a naturally glowing skin. We hear you, fret not mommy – these are simple homemade masks and needs only 20 minutes a day, and your skin will thank you for this. We have intentionally kept these ingredients and masks simple with great benefits for your skin. What’s more these are DIY made with ingredients easily found in your kitchen cabinet and hence easy on your pockets (perfect). Get ready to receive compliments for your homemade makeover. Cheers to happy and glowing skin.
Below are three remedies. Pick one that suits you the best. Please note all these remedies are homemade and do not cause any major damage to the skin. However, each ingredient reacts differently with different skin types and hence we suggest you do a swatch test before you go ahead with the mask on your face.
1.Cucumber Juice – For happy supple skin
Requires half cucumber
One of the simplest things ever and perfect relaxation mask after hard day. Cut a cucumber and rub this on your skin in clockwise motion and cover your whole face with this. Let it dry and sit on your face for 20 minutes. Wash with lukewarm water and pat dry your face with a soft towel. Follow up with a moisturizing cream.
Benefits: Leaves you and your skin feeling fresh and supple.
2.Turmeric and Honey mask – For that golden glow
1 tsp organic turmeric powder
1 tsp organic honey
1 tsp milk
In a bowl mix together both all the above ingredients and apply it evenly on your face with a brush (using hands may leave the turmeric stain on your finger nails, hence we recommend using a brush). Let is sit for 20 minutes or until dry. After 20 minutes wash it out with lukewarm water. After about 20 days of doing this you will notice a beautiful golden glow on your face.
Benefits: Honey acts as a pore cleanser and helps get rid of blackheads and even lightens the extra facial hair. Turmeric helps in reducing blemishes and marks on the skin. And milk is a natural moisturizer. And we guarantee you no DIY disaster here as all ingredients used are good for the skin and body. A complete win-win.
3.Honey, Avocado and Oat Mask – Removes dead cells
1 tsp organic honey
1 tsp Oats
Ewwww, we are all set to lick that bowl clean (what’s not to love! Avo – gooood, honey – gooood, oats – gooood). Oh, but wait mommy, this one is for the face not for the tummy, so try not to scoff it off. Mash the avocados and mix in the honey and oats and make a smooth past. Then spread this evenly on your face. Leave it on for 20 minutes and wash it clean.
Benefits: Avocado contains the essential fats without making your skin too oily. Oats act as a natural moisturiser also a helps remove the dead cells. And lastly honey is the secret ingredient which most brands use in their product range.
