Every Woman's Dream

Having beautiful, soft, and moisturized skin is every woman's dream. Many of us spend a lot of money trying to find a product that will actually work for us. What we do encounter are products made up of harsh chemicals and that often cause skin irritations and allergies. For that reason, you may want to opt for natural ways to achieve the same results. Although using natural ingredients requires that you are patient, the results will be worth it. The masks below have simple ingredients that are easy to find. The masks are also very fast and easy to make, so it won't be a problem to do them on a weekly basis.

Banana Mask

This is a very simple mask, great for moisturizing the skin. Bananas contain vitamins A, B, C and E. They also contain minerals like potassium, zinc, iron and manganese. Of course, the very best way to enjoy bananas is to eat them, but you can also apply it right on your skin for a more clear and moisturized appearance. You can make this mask with bananas only, but you can also add honey.

You will need:

  • a medium ripe banana
  • honey (optional)

Directions:

  • mash the banana in a dish
  • apply to face
  • let it sit for 10-15 minutes
  • rinse with cool water

Avocado Moisturizing Mask

Another inexpensive way to moisturize the skin is by making an avocado mask. I love avocados, so I always have them around. Not only are they good for skin and hair, but they are super nutritious as well.

You will need:

  • 1/2 of Hass avocado(ripe)
  • 1 teaspoon of plain yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon of honey

Directions:

  • Mash the avocado and the rest of the ingredients
  • apply to face
  • let it sit for 10-15 minutes
  • rinse with cool water

Egg Whites Mask

This is one of those DIYs I thought were super duper disgusting because I dislike dealing with raw eggs, but please do not fear, it was actually no big deal. The egg whites mask is pretty cleansing to the skin. It is sure to make those nasty blackheads disappear. Besides the benefits, this mask will always be available because you always have eggs at home.

What you will need:

  • the egg whites of about 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon orange juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon of turmeric powder

Directions:

  • Whisk all ingredients together
  • apply to skin
  • let it sit 15 minutes or until the mask dries
