Facials are an optimal way to not only pamper yourself but help maintain a healthy glow to your skin. With the benefits facials offer, many people will often treat themselves with regularly scheduled appointments. In between your spa days, you can use homemade masks to help preserve your healthy skin glow. Today, we at Open Door Med Spa would like to share a few homemade recipes designed to give you remarkable results in between your spa treatments.
Cocoa Hydration Mask
These delicious ingredients do wonders for your face. Avocado has hydrating capabilities, cocoa is an antioxidant that leaves soothing skin, and honey is antibacterial and an anti-inflammatory agent.
1) In a small bowl, mash ¼ of an avocado.
2) Stir 1 tablespoon honey and 1 tablespoon cocoa powder, and mash into the avocado.
3) To your clean, dry skin apply the mask for 10 minutes.
4) With warm water, wash. Clean and moisturize face as normal.
Nourishing Honey Face Mask for Glowing Skin
Being a natural antibacterial, honey makes perfect base for acne-fighting masks. For treating acne, nutritional yeast is an excellent source since it is rich in B-vitamins can help calm the skin.
1) With two tea bags brew one cup of chamomile tea and allow it to completely cool.
2) Stir together 1 teaspoon of nutritional yeast, 1 tablespoon of manuka or raw honey in a tiny bowl.
3) Create a thicker paste by adding just enough chamomile tea to the bowl that’s still runny enough to spread across your skin, but not too watery.
4) On your face, apply thin layer and let sit for 20 minutes.
5) Rinse off, pat dry, and moisturize.
Banana Face Mask for Dry & Other Skin Types
For a health, natural-looking glow, but gentle enough on all skin types, banana masks are excellent.
1) In a bowl, mash ½ of a banana.
2) Mix 1 tablespoon of honey and 1 tablespoon of orange juice.
3) Smear the mask to your face, (it’s okay if it is lumpy) and let is sit for 15 minutes.
4) Moisturize after rinsing with lukewarm water.
Breakfast Mask for Oily Skin
To better neutralize oily skin, the soothing oatmeal and tightening egg yolks are exceptional.
1) With 1 tablespoon of olive oil, 1 tablespoon of honey, and 1 egg yolk combined, mix it in with ½ a cup of oatmeal.
2) For 15-20 minutes, apply it to your face after it is stirred well.
3) Rinse with lukewarm water and moisturize.
Papaya Face Mask for Pigmentation
For sunspots, and uneven skin tones, this mask is especially great for those who have hyperpigmentation.
1) Blend ½ cup of mashed papaya with 2 tablespoons of honey.
2) Apply the mixture gently to your face for 15-20 minutes.
3) Wash it off well and moisturize as usual.
Homemade Hydration Face Mask
An exfoliating mask is an exceptional solution for most issues. With the ingredients common in most fridges, you can have smoother skin.
1) Mix 2 tablespoons of yogurt with ½ cup of buttermilk.
2) Leave the mask on for few hours and wash well, then follow up with a moisturizer.
