DIY Face Masks to Beat the Summer Heat
For most of us, summer is now in full force. Temps are high, everyone is going out and our skin has to deal with it. We are going to talk about two Do-It-Yourself Facemasks that can help keep you looking fresh.
Following your usual skincare regimen is still a good idea, but sometimes you need to freshen up your routine.
These easy, at home face-masks are the way to do it. Best of all, they’re 100% organic!
Cucumber and sugar mask
Cucumber is filled with Vitamin C and caffeic acid, which have amazing skin benefits. Cucumber is great for the skin as it has hydrating and nourishing properties that help soothe inflammation, balance oil production and reduce puffiness.
How to do it:
Mash together cucumbers and some sugar and refrigerate for 1 hour. Apply it onto your face and let it dry. Wash off in 15 minutes. Enjoy your hydrated and glowing skin!
Cinnamon and honey face mask
Cinnamon is another powerful ingredient that nature has been kind to give us. It is high in antioxidants, contains anti-inflammatory properties and as a result, it works beautifully on pores and acne.
Honey is naturally antibacterial and is full of antioxidants. This makes it a great remedy for acne and dryness.
How to do it:
Powder a cinnamon stick and add just a few drops of honey to it. Apply it on your skin and leave it for 10 minutes. Wash off to reveal fresh and clearer skin.
