Homemade Facial Masks
Posted By: Lindsay Schroeder Posted In: Uncategorized Date Posted: May 9th, 2012 Comments: 1

Many of the skincare products we use are infused with natural ingredients. We often look for information on the labels that say “natural” and “easy as 1-2-3” so why don’t you take matters into your own hands and just make your own home skincare treatments? Not only are homemade skin treatments good for your skin, but they are also great for your wallet!

Lucky for all of our readers, we will soon be featuring several wonderfully soothing and skin-clearing homemade facial masks for you to try at home and incorporate into your weekly skincare routine but until then we can give you some great ideas of what is to come and what natural products and foods are great for your skin!

Not only are bananas good for you when eaten, they are also great at helping the fight against acne! Bananas are rich in potassium, which when applied directly to the skin, will suffocate the bacteria in cells, forcing blemishes to heal more quickly. Bananas have many anti-bacterial properties, which can reduce swelling, and infections from other skin issues, including Psoriasis, Eczema, and even painful bug bites (pack some bananas if you’re going camping or grilling out at night this summer!). A really cool thing you can try with the peel of a banana is if you have an irritating and itchy skin condition, try rubbing the inside of the peel on your skin and it will help soothe your skin tremendously. The inside of the banana peel is also great when used as an exfoliant gently rub it on your skin with warm water and see how much softer and hydrated your skin becomes after sloughing off that dry skin (also known as cellular build-up).

Honey is another wonderful (and yummy!) product to try on the skin. Honey is an antioxidant proven to help reduce impurities from the skin and help battle mild acne. It also helps restore skin’s texture due to its anti-microbial properties, and will help repair skin damage from the sun and daily environments.

Cane sugar is a great product to use as an exfoliator. Mixing warm water with some sugar is an awesome and deliciously sweet way to gently remove dry skin from the face, neck, and even your lips! Much more gentle than salt, it will naturally dissolve with warm water, allowing you the perfect amount of time to work it over the skin before it disappears! Sugar will also hydrate your skin…just make sure not to be stepping outside right after this because the bees may love your skin a little too much too! J
