Everyone loves glowing skin, but there are so many products that promise glowing skin that it is hard to decide what is best for you. Check out these awesome do it yourself face masks that will keep your face glowing.
Banana facial masks
Bananas are packed with ingredients for great skin: vitamin A to fade dark spots and blemishes and smooth out rough skin, vitamin B to reduce dryness, vitamin E to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and potassium to moisturize and hydrate. So the fruit makes a perfect all-natural, homemade face mask that leaves skin looking and feeling softer. To make: Mash up a medium-sized ripe banana into a smooth paste, then gently apply it to your face and neck. Let it set for 10 to 20 minutes, then rinse it off with cold water. Or mix 1/4 cup plain yogurt, 2 tablespoons honey (a natural acne remedy), and one medium banana
Strawberry yogurt facial masks
For this refreshing (and tasty!) treatment, mash a handful of ripe strawberries with 3 tablespoons of ground almonds. Add 2 tablespoons of plain yogurt and mix until the mixture has a pasty texture. Apply it to your face and rinse for soft, smooth skin. If you have any left over, make sure to keep it refrigerated.
Youthful skin facial masks
The name of this homemade face mask says it all—banana acts as an astringent, helping to tighten facial skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. In addition to the yellow fruit (the recipe recommends a medium-sized banana), you’ll also need 1/4 cup of whipping cream. Mash them together, then add the contents of one 500-IU Vitamin E capsule. (You can pierce the capsule with a needle to squeeze out the contents.) Stir the mixture and then spread it onto your face, removing after 10 to 15 minutes.
Lemon facial masks
Lemons contain AHAs and BHAs, two types of hydroxy acid that remove dead skin cells and help clear up blackheads, acne, and discoloration. Create a homemade face mask by mixing the juice from one lemon with 1/4 cup olive oil or sweet almond oil. Or mix the juice of 1/2 lemon with a tablespoon of honey. Apply to your face, wait 15 minutes, and rinse off with warm water.
