With the majority of us being stuck at home and non-essential businesses being temporarily closed, I think it is safe to say that a lot of us may not be looking our best. Whether we are in need of a haircut, a pedicure, or even some waxing, it’s challenging to do some self-maintenance activities at home without being formally trained or well-versed in the aesthetic world.
While I’m not going to attempt to suggest how to go about cutting your own or someone else’s hair, I think it’s safe to share some very simple DIY face mask concoctions to help those of us who are facing a shitty complexion as of late. These particular masks come from The Healthy.
“Mash up a medium-sized ripe banana into a smooth paste, then gently apply it to your face and neck. Let it set for 10 to 20 minutes, then rinse it off with cold water. Or mix 1/4 cup plain yogurt, 2 tablespoons honey (a natural acne remedy), and one medium banana.
“Mix 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar with 2 cups water as a finishing rinse to cleanse and tighten your skin. You can also create a homemade face mask by mixing 1/4 cup cider vinegar with 1/4 cup water. Gently apply the solution to your face and let it dry.
“Mix 1/4 cup powdered milk with enough water to form a thick paste. Thoroughly coat your face with the mixture, let dry completely, then rinse with warm water. Your face will feel fresh and rejuvenated.
“Create a homemade face mask by mixing the juice from one lemon with 1/4 cup olive oil or sweet almond oil. Or mix the juice of 1/2 lemon with a tablespoon of honey. Apply to your face, wait 15 minutes, and rinse off with warm water.”
Now that you have a few different face mask variations to experiment with, get maskin’!
