Staying at home shouldn’t become a reason for your skin to lose its charm. Who doesn’t long for radiant glowing skin? But irregular skin care routine, stress and sun damage amongst other factors can strip our skin of its glow. Without proper care, our skin ends up looking dull and is coarse to touch.
During the current lockdown, which got extended until May 3, you may not always have the right beauty products and face masks to pamper your skin with. But let that not stop you. Make these facemasks at home to help your skin get the daily dose of essential nutrients.
Honey and Cream (malai)
Pour honey and cream in a bowl and stir them until the mixture becomes smooth and consistent. Apply it over your face as a mask to prevent the skin from becoming rough and dry.
Honey and Banana
Make a homogenous mix of banana and honey by whipping them together. You can use the mix as a face mask to lock moisture in your skin and prevent it from drying out.
Neem and Fuller’s Earth (multani mitti)
Create a thick paste by grinding fuller’s earth and neem leaves together. This paste, when used as a facemask, relieves acne. You can also add a pinch of medical-grade camphor to it which helps absorb excess of oil from the skin and thus heal acne.
Masoor Dal Powder, Orange Peel Powder and Rose Water
“Grind masoor dal and orange peel separately to obtain their powdered forms. One by one add them to rose water. Blend until the mixture becomes viscous and even. This can then be applied as a face mask to remove excessive oil from your skin”, says makeup artists Samaira Sandhu.
Masoor Dal Powder, Orange Peel Powder and Cream
Whip masoor dal powder, orange peel powder and cream together until they turn into a semi-solid paste. This paste, when applied as a face mask, moisturises dry skin.
These face masks are 100 per cent natural and thus, safe for your skin. Also, face masks are a great way to care for your skin; and they provide sure shot results. So you can be confident about using them. Be it lockdown or otherwise; don’t let anything mess with your skin!
