Summer is the time of the year that we all love and hate simultaneously. It is the perfect time to show off your skin, and that beach body that you “should have” worked on in the winter season. At the same time we also want to care for our skin and save it from the substantial damage that an excessive amount of sunshine can cause. And if you are facing this timeless dilemma, as have many before you have done, then fret no more. We bring to you a list of some of the best DIY masks that you can use to keep your skin in check. The best part of using these masks is that they are inexpensive can easily be made using simple materials found in most households. And since these masks are made of natural materials, they won’t damage your skin like other cosmetic products that you find in the market. Additionally, try to get some Mineral Makeup for yourself to save your skin from further harm. So, without further ado, here is our list of DIY masks for your skin.
1. Papaya Honey Mask
This is a simple, relatively easy mask to make. Just take a few cubes of papaya and add a few drops of honey on them. After mashing and mixing it thoroughly, the mask should be ready. Apply it to your face and leave it on for 15 to 20 minutes. After this period of time, rinse it off using warm water and then splash your face with cold water. Do this twice a week for the summer season. The papaya has anti-aging and spot removal properties. It will leave your skin feeling younger and clearer.
2. Gelatin Mask
If you have a problem with blackheads or whiteheads, this is just the remedy you need. And it is easy to make. All you have to do is take a tablespoon of Gelatin and add a tablespoon of milk to that. Heat this mixture in the microwave for ten seconds. Once that is done, spread this mask evenly on your whole face. Let this sit for 15 minutes. When the mask has dried, slowly peel it off. Be extra careful around the eyes. As you peel the mask off, the gelatin will cause the blackheads on your face to be removed as well. Using this mask will leave your skin bare and free of acne and blackheads. However, here’s a pro tip – after you peel the mask off, wash your face with warm and then cold water. Later add a few drops of a good toner (or apple cider vinegar if you want something natural) to a piece of cotton and rub it all over your face. This will close the pores of your face and prevent the formation of new blackheads. This mask is a natural remedy and is used to improve the condition of your skin.
