I think we all need some DIY face masks for soft skin. Summers can make the skin dull and dry. With the heat taking up all the moisture from your skin, it is important to take care of your skin. Eating healthy and staying hydrated are two of the most common ways to help your skin stay fresh and toned all through summer. But for that radiant glow and smooth finish to your skin, here are some super easy DIY face masks for soft skin that make you feel like a queen!
1. Banana Mask
Rich in vitamin A, B and E, a banana can do wonders to your skin. It reduces dark spots, slows down the process of aging and moisturizes the skin. Just mash a ripe banana and put it on your face and neck. Let it sit for 15-20 minutes and rinse with cold water. You can even massage your skin with ice cubes for 2-3 minutes after rinsing for better results. This is one of the best DIY face masks for soft skin, but keep reading for more.
2. Milk Mask
Mix powdered milk and water to form a thick paste and apply it on the face. Let it dry and then rinse it with cold water. You will instantly feel that your skin is softer and smoother.
3. Yogurt Mask
Mix 1 tablespoon of yogurt with 1 tablespoon of honey and apply on the face and neck to whiten the skin. This also helps to clear the skin of any acne and prevents further breakouts. For a spa-like treatment, mix yogurt with some orange juice and apply to skin for a healthy glow.
4. Turmeric Mask
In a bowl, mix turmeric, honey and milk or yogurt to form a thick paste. Put on your least favorite t-shirt (as turmeric leaves stains on clothes) and put the paste on your face. Turmeric, being a very powerful antioxidant and anti-bacterial agent, helps to clear acne and reduce the appearance of acne scars. Let it stay for about 10-20 minutes. Rinse with cold water.
5. Papaya Mask
Papaya contains vitamin A and papain enzyme. It removes dead skin cells and rejuvenates the skin for a silky smooth finish. Peel, de-seed and cut a papaya. Blend it with honey. Apply on your face and relax for 15-20 minutes. Rinse and pat dry.
6. Egg Mask
For oily skin, take an egg and separate the egg white. Beat the egg whites and squeeze in 1/2 a lemon. Leave it on for 10-15 minutes. Use this mask 2-3 times a week to get oil-free and well-toned skin.
7. Coconut and Green Tea Mask
For radiant and moisturized skin, mix 1 tsp. coconut oil, 2 tsp. honey, 1 tsp. green tea leaves (or 1/2 of a single tea bag of green tea) and 2 tsp. of lemon juice. See to it that the coconut oil is mixed well and doesn't separate out from the mix. Put the mix on the face and let it sit for 5-10 minutes. Rinse and pat dry.
