What other time to get your skin glowing under the sun? Summer is the perfect time to let your skin heal while having the time of your life with your friends. On the list of fun things to do this summer, your skincare should be at the top of the list. There are a list of natural DIY products you can use this summer to achieve all your skincare goals. The most important part of this article is to remember how important your sunscreen is. So while you try these DIY face masks indoors, remember to use a sunscreen when you head outside.
Acne is formed when the skin is clogged. Oil, dead cells, and bacteria clog the skin, and this causes blackheads, Whitehead, cysts, and other forms of acne terrible for the skin. Having acne during the summer can be annoying; we have all been there. Acne works faster when the treatment is gentle. Face masks work better than scrubs for acne treatment. Here are some homemade DIY face mask solutions that can give you clear skin and quick results.
CLAY MASK: Clay is soothing to the skin and helps to get rid of the source of acne. To make the perfect clay mask for your acne, mix the soothing clay with a tablespoon of Apple cider vinegar. The idea of using a little vinegar is to ensure the show stays thick. Apply in a circular motion around your face or the affected areas. Let the cover sit in for 15-20 minutes. Wash with warm water and repeat three times a week depending on how your skin takes it. After the first wash you wille notice a difference in your skin. Proceed to use a hydrating moisturizer.
RAW VINEGAR MASK: If you have a sensitive skin, please move to the next face mask as vinegar can be harsh to some skin types. Vinegar is an age-old acne treatment that a lot of people have used. To make a vinegar mask, you need the goodness of honey or baking soda. Get a mixing bowl, add a table spoon of vinegar, baking soda or honey and make a paste. Apply slowly to your face in a circular motion. Let the mask dry. You can apply it in layers depending on how much mask you want on your face. Let the mask sit in for a few minutes. Wash off with warm water and moisturize.
Remember, if you have sensitive or dry skin, you should use the vinegar and honey alone without the baking soda. Repeat the process until you achieve your desired effect.
OATMEAL & HONEY: The oatmeal and honey mask is the only grail of DIY masks. Before the application of this mask, wash your face with warm water as the mask works better on a damp face. Purchase our oatmeal from the DIY section. Pour three tablespoons of oatmeal to the mixing bowl and add set aside. Put two table spoons of honey into warm water and stir until it makes a paste. Mix the two products together to make a paste with an easy consistency. Apply gently on the face and extend to the neck. Let the face mask sit in for about 15-20 minutes. While you wait, you can soak yourself in an oatmeal bath. Wash off your face with warm water and repeat at least 3 times a week.
The good thing about the oatmeal and honey mask is that it gives you a glowing skin while getting rid of the acne. Achieving two skin care goals with one mixed bowl of DIY products sounds exciting to us too!
