How These DIY Homemade Face Masks Are Best For Super Soft Skin

The thought of getting a daily spa treatment might be nice, but it is hardly practical. Fortunately, there are many ways you can achieve soft skin without stepping out of your home or spending too much.

You can achieve impressive results if you know how to pick your ingredients well. Even issues with acne can be addressed by a DIY face mask.

You can make a face mask at home, and here are some recipes:

Hydrate your skin with an avocado mask

Ingredients

½ avocado

1 tablespoon plain yogurt

1 teaspoon olive oil

1 teaspoon honey

Procedure

Mash the avocado and add the rest of the ingredients. When the consistency is that of a smooth paste, apply the face mask to clean skin. Leave the mask on for about 20 minutes and wash off.

Why it works

There is a reason why we are in the middle of an avocado renaissance. The good fat that people like to consume for their health is also the same good fat that can moisturize the skin through a face mask. As a result, the skin achieves a plump, youthful appearance.

Smoothen out rough skin with cucumber

Ingredients

½ cucumber

Milk

1 tablespoon honey

1 tablespoon sugar

Procedure

Puree the cucumber using a food processor. Add the honey and enough milk to achieve the desired consistency of the face mask. Mix in the sugar.

Apply on your face using small circular motions, paying close attention to rough spots like the chin and forehead. Rinse off.

Why it works

Exfoliating can sometimes leave the skin red and blotchy. When this happens, it means that the exfoliation process was too strong, which irritated the skin.

Sugar granules provide a gentler alternative to harsh abrasives. They tend to dissolve after a while, so it prevents you from over-scrubbing your skin.

The cucumber also soothes through its Vitamin C and caffeine content. It also has a high water content that hydrates the skin.

Brighten dull complexion with a papaya mask

Ingredients

1 cup papaya

1 teaspoon honey

1 egg white

Procedure

Mash the banana and mix with the honey and egg white. Apply the mixture to clean skin and wait for 20 minutes. Wash off.

Why it works

Papaya’s secret weapon against dull skin is papain. It is an enzyme that reduces the appearance of blemishes and discoloration.

A face mask made from papaya also has high alpha hydroxy acid content. Together with the papain, these substances act as a gentle chemical exfoliant that removes the dull layer of skin cells.

Get glowing skin with a tomato mask

Ingredients

1 tomato

3 teaspoons buttermilk

Procedure

Take a tomato and cut it in half. Squeeze out the juice. It should yield about two teaspoons of juice. Add the juice with buttermilk and mix thoroughly.

Use a cotton pad or cotton ball to apply it on your face. Let the mixture dry on your face before washing it off.

Why it works

Tomatoes are often labeled as a superfood because of their high nutritional content. Applied topically, tomatoes can help improve the appearance of the skin.

Lycopene is what gives tomatoes their distinct red color. It is a carotenoid, which is a substance that offsets the damage done by free radicals in the body.

Tomatoes are also high in Vitamin A and Vitamin C. Vitamin C is often found in many skin-brightening products because it interferes with the production of pigment. Vitamin A, on the other hand, stimulates blood flow and collagen production on the skin to slow down the aging process.

Calm your skin with a turmeric mask

Ingredients

1 teaspoon turmeric powder

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon water

Procedure

Mix all the ingredients together to make a paste. Gently massage the face mask on using circular motions. After about five minutes, rinse your face.

Why it works

Anti-inflammatory face masks can rejuvenate the skin by keeping it free from bacteria and thus, prevent blemishes like acne from occurring.

Turmeric has anti-inflammatory properties because of its curcumin content. Curcumin is what gives turmeric its distinctive yellow color. It is also believed to protect the skin from free radicals and the skin-dulling effects of pollutants.

Baking powder is a gentle exfoliant. Its addition to the mix scrubs off dead skin cells that dull the complexion.

You reap the benefits of skincare when you use these ideas regularly. This is the reason why a DIY face mask is useful. Homemade masks are relatively inexpensive and can be done from the comfort of your home.

If you can easily whip up a recipe and apply it on your face without straining resources, then you are more likely to follow the skincare routine consistently.

These masks can either be used to complement your usual skincare routine or take their place entirely. In either case, homemade masks can provide you with softer, glowing skin.
