How to Make At-Home Spa Masks
At-home spa masks are simple to make, inexpensive and gentle for all skin types. Natural ingredients from your kitchen are full of vitamins, minerals and a profusion of beneficial oils that help the skin. At-home spa masks are free of chemicals and harsh preservatives found in store-bought products, making them gentler on the skin.
Banana and Honey Firming Spa Mask
Mix half a banana and 1 tbsp. honey until it forms a pulp-like substance. Bananas are gentle on the face and provide vitamin A and C to build collagen while honey attracts necessary moisture to the face for a full and lifted appearance.
Warm the mask by rubbing it between the palms before use.
Apply the firming mask evenly to the face and allow to dry for 30 minutes.
Rinse the mask off with lukewarm water.
Yogurt and Lemon Spa Mask
Apply 1 tbsp. of plain yogurt to mature skin for an exfoliating and anti-aging mask. Yogurt contains lactic acid, a natural alpha hydroxy acid that reveals fresher and younger looking skin. Add 1 tsp. of lemon juice to plain yogurt for a more intensive age spot treatment. Lemon juice contains citric acid, another alpha hydroxy acid that fades rough age spots.
Leave the mask on for 25 minutes. Yogurt also has a mild bleaching effect on the skin making it a natural treatment for liver spots and skin discoloration.
Rinse the mask off thoroughly.
