When we talk of restoration of moisture and rejuvenation of skin, the two key natural ingredients that come to my mind are honey and almonds oil. Facial masks that use honey as main ingredient can lock moisture into your skin and check bacterial growth. Almonds oil helps hydrating your skin and provides lubrication.

4 Homemade Moisturizing Facial Masks

1. Vitamin C Face Mask: Mix 2 tablespoons of plain yogurt, 2 tablespoons of orange juice and 1 teaspoon of organic almond oil in a small glass bowl. Stir the mixture until it forms a consistent paste. Wash your face and neck with a gentle cleanser. Pat your skin dry with a soft towel. Apply the mixture onto your face and neck thoroughly, avoiding your eyes, nostrils and mouth. Let the mixture remain on your skin for 20-25 minutes. Rinse the mask off with water, pat dry your skin and apply a thin layer of moisture to augment the hydrating power of the mask.

This hydrating face mask serves dual purpose. The almond oil will hydrate your skin and vitamin C contained in the orange juice will work to reduce fine lines and wrinkles.

2. Citrus Honey Mask: Mix 2 tablespoons orange juice and 2 tablespoons of honey in a small glass bowl. Stir the mixture till it forms a consistent paste, thick enough to be applied without dripping. Wash your face and neck with a gentle cleanser. Pat your skin dry with a soft towel. Apply the mixture onto your face and neck thoroughly, avoiding your eyes, nostrils and mouth. Let the mixture remain on your skin for 20 minutes. . Rinse the mask off with water, pat dry your skin and apply a thin layer of moisture to augment the hydrating power of the mask.

3. Honey-Almond Oil Mask: Mix 2 tablespoons of honey, 2 table spoons of organic almond oil and 2 tablespoon of butter milk. Blend the mixture together to form a uniform solution. Add plain instant oatmeal into this mixture and blend it in a blender until it forms a spreadable paste of uniform consistency. Wash your face and neck with a gentle cleanser. Pat your skin dry with a soft towel.  Apply the mixture onto your face and neck thoroughly, avoiding your eyes, nostrils and mouth. Let the mixture remain on your skin for 20 minutes. Rinse the mask off with water, pat dry your skin and apply a thin layer of moisture to augment the hydrating power of the mask.

4. Fruits Moisturizing Facial Masks: When we talk of fruits hydrating face masks for dry skin, avocado comes to my mind immediately. The avocado works as a hydration miracle and is best for sensitive skin.  The following are different versions of avocado moisturizing face mask.

(i)  Avocado Alone: You need a ripe avocado for this easy mask. Mashed one avocado into a consistent paste, apply gently over your cleansed face and leave there for 15-20 minutes, and then rinse it off.

(ii) Avocado Delight: Mix one ripe avocado, one teaspoon yogurt, one teaspoons olive oil and one teaspoon honey to form a uniform paste. Apply and leave it on for twenty minutes, and then rinse it off.

(iii) Avocado-Egg: Beat one egg white and mix it with one ripe avocado, one tea spoon olive oil and one teaspoon apple cider vinegar. Apply it on cleansed face & neck, leave it on for 15 minutes, and then rinse it off.

Natural Beauty Tips:

(i) Use fresh fruits, and not the canned ones;

(ii) Wash your face with a mild face cleanser, pat it dry with soft towel, before applying face mask;

(iii) Apply face mask using your fingers, massaging gently in small circular motions, avoiding eyes, nostrils and lips;

(iv) To rinse off mask, use warm water and a soft wash cloth, followed by cold water splash to close your skin pores. Apply a thin layer of a moisturizer to boost the hydrating effect of the face mask.
