Face Mask RecipesThe hectic holiday season is upon us. Please don’t forget to take care of yourself. Here are 3 easy, DIY Facial Mask Recipes that will make you feel less stressed and very pampered. All three recipes require simply, easy-to-find ingredients. A quick trip to the grocery store and you’ll have everything you need to indulge in a little self care. And that is something we could all use more of, right?

Easy Papaya Mask

What you will need:

  • 1 Ripe Papaya
  • Warm Water

Cut a slice from the papaya and remove the seeds and the fruit. Save the fruit for a snack; the pulp of the papaya fruit contains two enzymes, papain and chymopapain. (Both enzymes digest proteins, meaning they can help with digestion and reduce inflammation. Papain is an ingredient in some over-the-counter digestive supplements to help with minor upset stomach.) Rub the inside of the peel on your clean face, focusing on the area around and under the eyes (crow’s feet), around the mouth (smile lines), and the forehead (frown lines). Don’t forget your neck and the backs of your hands. Let the fruit juice to sit on your skin for 20 minutes. Rinse with cool, clear water. Gently pat the skin dry.

 

Easy Yogurt Mask

What you will need:

  • 1 tablespoon Greek yogurt, plain, unsweetened
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil

Yogurt contains lactic acid which diminishes fine lines and wrinkles and tightens skin and shrinks pores. Olive oil soften and hydrates skin. Mix together the yogurt and the oil. Smooth onto face, neck, and the back of hands. Let the mask sit on skin for 5 to 10 minutes. Rinse with warm, clear water. Pat dry.

Soothing Honey Mask

What you will need:

  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

Honey is a humectant which means it helps the skin retain moisture. It’s also an anti-bacterial that will has healing properties. Apple cider vinegar balances the skin’s pH and sooths damaged skin. This is a good mask for adult acne. Mix together the honey and the vinegar. Smooth over face. Allow mask to sit on face for 15 to 20 minutes. Rinse with cool, clear water. Gently pat dry.
