3 Homemade Face Masks To Purify Your Skin

Going for a facial every time your skin feels dull and tired is not just expensive but also very time consuming. Here are three simple and quick face masks that you can make at home to nourish your skin and bring back your natural glow.

1. Purifying and brightening face mask

Purifying and astringent, lemon is ideal for combination and oily skin. It deep cleanses and its acidity absorbs excess sebum and helps to clear dead skin. Enriched with lactic acid, yogurt exfoliates, moisturises and smoothens out your skin. And all that calcium boosts cell renewal, the perfect thing to achieve a glowing complexion.

You'll need: - Juice from half a lemon and two tablespoons of natural yogurt. Mix the juice and yogurt together and apply a thin layer to the face. Make sure you avoid the sensitive eye area. Leave for three to five minutes and rinse off. An added bonus with this mask is baby-soft skin.

2. Mineralising and detoxifying face mask

Purifying, mineralising, regenerating and detoxifying - green clay has got it all. It naturally cleans the skin and helps to rid skin of impurities, making it ideal for combination, oily, and acne-prone skin. The oil in the face mask moisturises and softens skin.

You'll need: - Two tablespoons powdered clay, 1 teaspoon hazelnut oil (substitute with coconut oil if you do not have hazelnut oil), and two tablespoons mineral water. Mix the ingredients to a smooth paste and apply a thick layer to the face, avoiding the eyes and lips. If the clay starts to dry out, moisten it with a mist of water. Leave for 10-15 minutes and wash off with warm water.

3. Brightening and regenerating face mask

Squash stimulates collagen production and fights the appearance of blemishes, while honey aids cell regeneration and brightens the complexion.

You'll need: - One squash, one tablespoon honey, and two drops tea tree oil. Mash the squash to a puree. Add the tablespoon of honey, then stir in the tea tree oil. Once the mixture is smooth, apply to the skin, leave on for 15 minutes, and rinse.
