Glowing skin is what every woman dreams of as it indicates a healthy lifestyle and, more importantly, a healthy body.
Due to stress and pollution however, many of us lose this healthy glow. And with so many of us being strapped for time, hitting the spa for a facial just isn’t possible.
Fortunately there are some super easy homemade face masks for glowing skin that can be made using ingredients you may already have in your kitchen!
2 Simple Homemade Face Masks for Glowing Skin
The Chocolate and Coffee Mask
Two of my favourite things rolled into one mask! Does it get any better?
While chocolate is delicious to eat did you know it also contains a good amount of antioxidants which are great to relieve your skin of dullness?
Chocolate facials are becoming more common at spas all over the world, thanks to the quick and radiant glow they provide. Here’s an easy way for you to get the same results at home without having to spend the big bucks.
You will need to round up these ingredients:
- 1 tablespoon of Curd
- 1 tablespoon of Honey
- 1 tablespoon of cocoa powder
- 1 tablespoon of Coffee powder
From there, follow these steps:
- Combine all the ingredients together in a non-metal container
- Mix it all up until evenly combined
- Apply it evenly over your face/neck area
- Leave it on for 10-15 minutes or til the mask dries and you feel that your skin has become taut
- Wash off using lukewarm water and pat dry.
Follow up with light moisturizer, like Coconut Oil, if your skin is feeling a little dry.
What’s so great about this mask is that the honey moisturizes and lightens while the cocoa and coffee infuses your skin with antioxidants.
The Oatmeal and Curd Mask
I know, the word curd just makes me cringe but both oatmeal and curd are extremely effective at transforming dull, lifeless skin into healthy, glowing skin.
Oats act as an effective cleanser and exfoliant while not irritating even the most sensitive skin.
Curd, on the other hand, helps to keep the skin hydrated and is full of good bacteria which will help to bring back that lost glow.
To make this mask, all you need is:
- 1 tablespoon of Curd
- 1 tablespoon oatmeal
From there, simply:
- Take the curd and oatmeal in a non-metal bowl and mix using a spoon
- Apply on your clean face using your clean hands
- Cover the face totally and keep the mask on for 10-15 minutes or till it dries completely
- When you feel your skin becoming tight, wash off and pat dry.
Not only are these homemade face masks for glowing skin easy to make but you should notice that healthy, radiant glow returning to your face in only a few short applications.
Best of all, you won’t have to spend hundreds at the spa just to look your absolute best. And who doesn’t love saving some coin here and there?
