If you live in the Midwest or just up north in General January is usually the coldest month, with THEE MOST snowfall. Now thats not all bad snowfall just means SNOOOW DAYS!! The perfect day to do self care, and rejuvenate the skin. Now even if you are not in the Midwest or up north and you are thinking Mari its sunny and beautiful weather where I am. Well first, LUCKY YOU, I WISH! And second these mask are great for ANY self care day.
I will be giving you 4 DIY Mask; 1 for Acne, 1 for skin soothing, 1 for detoxing skin and 1 for extra skin hydration. All of the mask are homemade and are made from ingredients you may already have in your house. OR extra ingredients you can pick up from your local supermarket. Now lets get started.
-Salt (sea salt for oily/combination skin & Himalaya Sea Salt for dry/normal skin)
- Honey (any raw honey brand,if you want to be fancy Manuka Honey is AMAZE BALLS)
THATS IT! Just two ingredients. Mix both of these ingredients remembering your face is a small area and you do not need a lot. Let the mask sit on your face for 10-15mins and then rinse off with Luke warm water. Salt is amazing for drying out acne, balancing your skin PH, And sometimes giving a light exfoliation to skin. Honey I has natural anti-inflammatory properties and anti-bacterial properties that helps clean and soothe your skin. Honey is also good for hydration so after rinsing the mask off you are left with this beautiful glowing skin.
This mask can get dry sticky but is very effective. Mixing all ingredients into you are able to be spread across your face. Let mask sit on face for 10-15 mins. One cool thing about this mask is that each ingredient is made too soothe and relax your skin. Oatmeal is very soothing to skin, it has anti-inflammatory properties and soak up dirt and oils from skin. Aloe Vera also has natural anti-inflammatory properties as well as healing properties. Honey is amazing for bringing moisture back to the skin and leaving your skin glowing and hydrated.
-Apple Cider Vinegar
This mask is one of our quick ones because of the strong ingredients. All f these ingredients has the same properties of pulling toxins from skin but here is how they are different. Green tea is also amazing at soothing your sin and also adding hydration to your skin. Apple Cider Vinegar helps balance your pH in your skin, and salt helps balance the oils on your face. Each ingredients are affectively working together giving your skin a clean and hydrated pallet. Now all of these ingredients can be a little strong so only let. Mask sit 5-10 mins.
- Orange Juice
This tropical paradise is amazing, and of course what is a face mask without honey lol. This face mask requires bananas because of their richness in potassium and water it gives hydration to the skin. Orange juice is amazing because of how rich it is Vitamin C. Vitamin C Alone is crucial to making and creating healthy skin. Last but not least honey, well being a natural humectant honey will pull moisture to lock it into your skin. This mask will leave your skin soft, hydrated and GLOWWING! Let sit on skin 10-15 mins

Something to add depending on what your skin needs at the time, the gag is it will always need something!
