If you prefer using natural products on your skin, then you will love these homemade face masks for dry skin. The benefits of making your own face masks are avoiding chemical ingredients (especially useful if you have sensitive skin), plus many masks can be made for pennies with ingredients that you have in the kitchen. So here are some homemade face masks for dry skin. Make sure to wash your face with warm water before and after applying all of these masks, to keep your skin clean and open to the valuable nutrients!
OAT BRAN MASK
PAPAYA AND STRAWBERRY MASK
Cucumber masks can be used for both oily and dry skin, depending on how you manipulate this versatile fruit! For women with dry skin, try this method. It may smell a little strange, but it will all be worth it in the end!
4 Tablespoons mashed cucumbers
2 Tablespoons sour cream
Combine the mixture.
Apply the mixture to your clean skin.
Leave it on for 20 minutes.
Rinse and dry.
BANANA, HONEY AND OATMEAL
You might be wondering if this next DIY mask recipe is a list of ingredients for a healthy breakfast or for healthy skin. Honestly, it works for both! But, if you’re interested in making a deeply moisturizing facial treatment; apply it to your face instead of noshing on it!
1/2 cup oatmeal
1 tablespoon honey
Cut the banana in half and mash it with a fork.
Mix in the oatmeal.
Add honey and mix well.
Add water and mix until the mask has a creamy consistency.
Apply evenly to clean skin, leave it on for 15, then rinse with warm water and pat your face dry.
MAYONNAISE AND BABY OIL
If you have both ingredients, this is a really quick and easy mask to make – although perhaps not quite as fragrant as the papaya and strawberry mask! The bonus of this recipe is that it is also recommended for use on the body as well, which is helpful if you suffer from dry skin all over.
2 tablespoons real mayonnaise
1 teaspoon baby oil
Combine both ingredients.
Smooth onto face, neck, rough elbows and knees or anywhere else you feel might benefit from it.
Leave for 20 minutes.
Rinse off thoroughly with tepid water.
Coconut oil is an excellent natural moisturizer for dry skin, and can be bought very cheaply. It tends to solidify in cooler weather, but the warmth of your hands will soon melt it. It’s a versatile ingredient that can be used for different skin types, but for dry skin, try the this top choice mask.
2 tablespoons virgin coconut oil
1 inch of a ripe banana, mashed
3 drops of frankincense essential oil
Whip all ingredients together with a fork or spoon and apply to a clean face. The banana adds some antioxidant action while the frankincense is good for cellular regeneration. Rinse off after 20 minutes, pat dry, and moisturize.
YOGURT AND VITAMIN E
Do you take Vitamin E capsules? If so, they can be used to make this mask for dry skin. Of course, you should use plain, full-fat yoghurt, and not the flavored variety! If you don’t have any vitamin E, pick some up and you’ll have enough to make masks for months.
2 tbsp. plain, full-fat yogurt
1 tbsp. honey
2 tbsp. cooked oatmeal
1 vitamin E capsule
Place 2 tbsp. of plain yogurt in a small mixing bowl. Use full-fat yogurt, as the fat in the yogurt will hydrate and moisturize the skin.
Stir in 1 tbsp. honey and 2 tbsp. cooked oatmeal and the contents of 1 vitamin E capsule. Allow the oatmeal to cool before adding it to the facial mixture.
Wash your face with warm water, and then remove the excess water from your skin with a soft towel. Smooth the hydrating facial mask on your damp skin and allow it to remain for 15 to 20 minutes.Rinse your face, and then pat your skin dry. Finish by applying your favorite moisturizer.
Who would have thought milk could be one of the best cures for dry skin? Combine milk with a few other simple ingredients to produce glowing, rejuvenated skin!
3 tablespoons 2% milk
1/2 cup of brown sugar
1 tablespoon honey
Combine brown sugar and milk.
Add in all natural honey.
Before you put on the mask, peel and slice two pieces of cucumber to place over your eyes.
Apply the face mask.
Massage gently into your skin for a few minutes.
Place cucumbers over your eyes and relax for about 20 minutes.
Wash your face with warm water and pat dry.
