#StayinwithHKM: DIY self-care masks
Do you also feel like you’ve been sitting at home for weeks, and haven’t worn any make-up in days? These are crazy times, we know, but it’s still important to take good care of yourself! That’s why we’ve listed the best D.I.Y. masks for your skin type. Get ready for a self-care night and select one of these masks.
Do you suffer from oily skin? Then this banana mask is perfect. As bananas are rich in the mineral potassium, your skin’s moisture balance remains optimal. Mash a ripe banana and mix with two teaspoons of honey and a little lemon juice. Apply the mask to your face, and you’ll notice the effect after just 15 minutes!
Did you know that pineapple works incredibly well against inflammation of the skin? Place some pineapple pieces in the blender with 3 tablespoons of yogurt. When it’s smooth, you can apply it to your face. After 10 minutes, rinse your face with lukewarm water and your skin will be shining!
Everyone loves chocolate, but besides its heavenly taste, it can also be used as a natural moisturiser. Melt a bar of dark chocolate and add a teaspoon of almond oil. Allow it to cool down to a comfortable heat to apply to your face. Remove the mask from your face after 10 minutes, using a damp towel.
When your skin is slightly more sensitive and redder than usual, a yogurt mask will do wonders. Yoghurt has a cooling effect on the skin. Mix 2 teaspoons of oat flakes with 3 tablespoons of yogurt. Leave the mask to soak in for 15 minutes, then rinse your face with cold water. You’ll feel refreshed!
Do you just want a nice mask to pamper yourself on a self-care night? We’ve got your back! Strawberries not only make your skin firmer, they also help to restore your skin after a day in the sun. Puree 50 grams of strawberries with 6 tablespoons of yogurt. Add a little more strawberries if the mask is too thin. Leave the mask to soak in for 15 minutes.
