We read in almost every beauty magazine and bog that our skin requires extra care in winter season. But let’s face it, who has got the time to apply moisturizing lotion on skin like 100 times a day? Besides, I am the kind of person who hates spending weekends in salons and that’s why I always prefer homemade winter facepacks to keep up with the frizzy season.
I have normal skin which gets slightly oily in summer season and turns little dry in winters. In addition, I am not allergic to most of the ingredients that are used for skin care. There are several ingredient mixtures that can be prepared at home within 2 minutes. These face masks will protect your skin from winters throughout the season. Here goes the list:
Yogurt and honey
The combination of yogurt and honey gets the first place in this list of homemade winter facepacks because of its impressive effects. Take yogurt and honey in equal quantity and prepare a fine paste. Now apply it on your skin and wash after keeping it for 15-20 minutes.
Mashed Banana with Milk
There is a reason why I love banana fruit. You can easily peel it off and mash it in few seconds to make a paste. You can mash a banana and add few drops of milk to get a thick paste. If you have oily skin, then you can replace milk with rose water. Apply this mask properly on your face and then wash off after 20 minutes.
Carrot juice and honey
To get a purely clean skin in winters, add 2 tablespoons of carrot juice in a tablespoon of honey. Mix it well and massage your face with it for 10-15 minutes. After massaging, leave it for at least 10 minutes and then rinse your face with water.
Milk and oatmeal
Yeah, you heard it right! Oatmeal is not just for shedding extra calories from the body. It can also help you provide a softer and healthier skin in winters. You can mix oatmeal with milk in equal quantities to obtain a paste. Keep this paste on your face for 15 minutes and then rinse it off with water. These days, oatmeal is widely being used for making homemade winter facepacks.
Milk cream and honey
You can never underestimate the goodness of milk cream and its rich moisturizing qualities. Prepare a fresh mixture of this delicious face mask by adding honey in milk cream. Take both these ingredients in equal quantity to make a fine mixture. Apply it evenly on your skin and let it stay for 15-20 minutes. Wash it off with warm water and then splash your face with cold water for soothing effect.
Aloe vera and almond oil
Almond oil is included in the category of essential oils because of the enormous presence of vitamin E. On the other hand, aloe vera consists of amazing healing properties. Mixing these two ingredients can bring magic to your skin. I can’t think of a better option for dry skin problem. If your skin is sensitive, then you must consult your dermatologist before giving this remedy a shot.
Honey and rose water
Honey is found in every kitchen probably because of its anti-oxidant properties. You can mix it with thousands of ingredients and treat a variety of skin issues at home. In fact, there is a huge list of recipes for homemade winter facepacks in which honey is used. If you mix honey with few drops of rose water, then you can apply it on your face as a nourishing mask.
Milk extracted from grated coconut
This is not exactly a face pack but you can consider it as a natural moisturizer. In order to prepare it at home, you can take grate a fresh coconut. Now collect this grated coconut and extract liquid from it to obtain moisturizing milk for your body. Apply it on your skin and let it stay for 10-15 minutes. Now, wash off your face to get smoother skin instantly.
Please note here that all the ingredients mentioned in above recipes for homemade winter facepacks suit my skin. I am not allergic to any of these ingredients and get great effects on my skin. If you have sensitive skin or you are allergic to any of these ingredients, don’t try the remedy. Moreover, you can ask your dermatologist about a suitable solution instead of trying random DIY techniques.
