What is your skin type?
How to make the perfect home DIY facial mask treatment
according to your skin type?
This post is the first in a series of blog posts about healthy skin care
This series will talk about the essentials,
the easiest, safe, natural, inexpensive and healthy steps
To help your skin be healthier and naturally glowing!
So let’s start by talking about facial treatment at home-
Why at home?
This is an easy way to keep the skin healthy,
It’s a part of a weekly beauty routine
and gives you time to relax and take care of yourself.
The first thing you should know is what your skin type is,
There are many kinds of skin types
But usually those are divided into 3 types:
Dry skin, Oily skin, Mixed skin
For each type, we will use a different facial mask
You can use facial masks once or twice a week.
The reason to use these masks is that
all the makeup/ stress/ air pollution/ chemicals
and many more triggers that damage our skin easily.
You can always go to professionals to get a beauty treatment
But this facial is easy, at home and takes only 20 minutes.
Also, it is important to mention that there are many good quality brands that produce these masks,
so for those who don’t want to start mixing at home,
I will recommend buying the most natural ones,
which you recognize and understand what’s written on the ingredients list.
After I used these homemade masks I can safely say that they are very good, easy to make, natural and nutritious!
*Before using the masks always try a small amount on the back of your hand first,
to see that you don’t have any allergic reactions.
So let’s see which mask you can make at home according to your skin type.
For an oily and mixed type of skin, clay would be the best choice,
but a different kind of clay for each one.
Clay is a material that has been used for ages
- Known for its highly absorbent properties.
- Absorbs and cleanses toxins naturally.
- Rich in minerals that nourish the skin.
- Toning the skin.
- Exfoliating dead skin cells.
- Reducing inflammation in acne.
For oily skin type
Green clay is suitable for oily skin and more prone to suffer from wounds
- 1 tablespoon of Green Clay
- 1/4 cup of Water
Mix together and let the clay to sink to the button of the glass
so the water and the clay will be separate,
drain the water and apply the mask on your face,
let it dry for 10-15 minutes and wash with warm water and apply face cream.
If your skin is oily and suffers from acne
A green clay mask that will help to absorb oiliness and help heal acne on your face
You can also add 1 teaspoon of Olive oil and 3 drops of Lemon to the Green Clay and water mixture.
This will be more gentle for your face
plus the Lemon will help to heal the pimples!
The Lemon reduces oil secretions and pimple-causing bacteria.
For mixed skin type
Pink Clay is more suitable for cases when the skin is drier.
This kind of Clay will clean your skin without dry it.
- 1 tablespoon of Pink Clay
- 1/4 cup of Water
Mix together and let the Clay sink to the button of the glass,
until the Water and the Clay will be separate,
drain the Water and apply the mask on your face.
Let it dry for 10-15 minutes and wash with warm Water
then apply face cream or organic Coconut Oil.
For dry skin
This skin type needs deeper nourishment.
The best treatment for this skin type is dried Oats!
- 1 tablespoon of Oats
- 1/4 cup of hot Water
- 1 teaspoon Honey
Mix together the Water and the Oats, let it sit for 5 minutes
add Honey and apply to your face for 5-10 minutes
wash with warm Water then apply rich face cream.
Face masks routine is a great time to relax and help your skin to look its best!
