Winters may be your favourite season, but your skin might not agree. One of the most common problems your skin faces during this time is that of dull skin. Prepare these quick and easy to DIY masks to give your skin that much-needed dose of TLC during the colder months.
Hectic schedules leave no time for elaborate skincare rituals, and we completely understand that. Fight winter dullness by just washing your face with a cleanser and applying a layer of honey. Just leave it on for 10 minutes, and let it moisturise your skin to give you that radiant glow.
Get rid of dull, flaky skin by combining honey, oatmeal and yoghurt to make a soothing oatmeal mask. Apply it on and let it stay for 15-20 minutes. Gently cleanse your skin while taking the mask off, scrubbing away any flakiness in the process.
Yoghurt and rose mask
Mix some honey, crushed rose petals and a few drops of rose water with a bowl of thick yoghurt to brighten your skin. Apply on to your face and leave it on for 20 minutes. Wash it off with cold water to see the glow.
Orange and green tea mask
If you have combination skin, this mask is the one for you. Crush some dried green tea leaves into a powder, and mix them with a few drops of apple cider vinegar and some orange juice to make a paste. Apply on your face for about 10 minutes, and wash it off with cold water. This mask is rich in antioxidants, and is great to brighten dull complexion.
Gram flour and tomato mask
Oily skin can be a task to handle during the winters. Gram flour is considered to be amazing at cleansing oily skin, and tomato is great at bringing an instant glow. To create this mask, mix gram flour with tomato juice till it forms a paste. Let it dry, and scrub it off gently to remove.
Banana and milk mask
This hydrating mask is perfect to combat patchy dry skin during the winters. Mash a tablespoon of banana with about two teaspoons of milk or rose water, and blend them well. Apply the mask on to your face for 20 minutes and wash off with cool water.
Aloe vera and almond oil mask
This mask can easily be considered to be a super fix for all your winter woes. Just mix about eight drops of almond oil with a teaspoon of aloe vera gel, and apply it onto your face, massaging in circular motions for about 15 minutes. You can leave it on for as little as 30 minutes, or as long as the entire night. Wash off with cold water for a super moisturised, radiant glow.
Carrot and honey mask
Mix two teaspoons of fresh carrot juice with a teaspoon of honey to make this mask. Apply it on your face, gently rubbing it in for about 15 minutes. Let it dry for 10 minutes and rinse off for soft, supple and glowing skin.
