Homemade Facial Mask for Dry Skin

Get to know all about vitamins and minerals, good healthy eating habits and nutrition and your dry skin will back to new in no time. Taking a holistic attitude to healthy looking skin is powerful. It is important that we understand the benefits of vitamins, minerals and natural foods so we can decide what to buy at the supermarket, not only to eat but also for your skin care regime. Here are some awesome easy 7 top tips for dry skin prevention (including a homemade facial mask for dry skin we know you will just fall in love with!)

1. Imagine you are at the supermarket and you are stressing about making a meal in a minute and how you are going to deal with your dry skin problem. Head straight to the vegetable department and grab carrots, tomatoes and any dark green leafy vegetable like spinach. Not finished here yet – stay with us!

2. Next head to the protein section and pop some eggs and oily fish in your trolley.

3. Now we know you can make a tasty treat out of all this and not only that some of these ingredients you can use in your homemade facial mask for dry skin. But why are these foods so good for dry skin?

4. The reason is because all these ingredients are rich in vitamin A, which is the one responsible for maintenance and repair of skin tissue so you need vitamin A for fresh looking skin.

5. But hang on a minute there is more good vitamin news on the way – eggs, fish and spinach also include vitamin B which is the one responsible for being the nutrient that forms the basis of all skin, nail and hair cells. Remember when we were really little everyone seemed to be making up some concoction to rub on their face and it always seem to include egg whites. They knew what they were talking about then when it came to making a homemade facial mask for dry skin, so why on earth in all this time has it taken us so long to get back to what we already knew. Quite gob smacking really.

6. Drink plenty of water! We are told so many times how drinking plenty of water is so good for us. It is excellent for our skin, so stay hydrated and not only will your skin look fabulous, it’s helps with headaches, staying alert and feeling positive.

7. This one really isn’t a tip, it’s more of a gift, but we just love giving away our ideas for a homemade facial mask for dry skin and other skin types. Our own research has given us some amazing results we are going to share them here with you:

Pumpkin Honey Dry Skin Mask

1 tablespoon of cooked pumpkin mashed

1 tablespoon of honey

¼ teaspoon of heavy whipped cream

½ teaspoon brown sugar

Mix it all up well, apply to your face, leave for about 15 minutes and then wash off with warm water.

Another thing that makes these homemade facial mask for dry skin and other skin types so great is how easy they are to make. You don’t need 100 ingredients or 50 little bottles of magic potions – all you need are everyday pantry ingredients that you will have in stock anyway. We guarantee if you stick to buying natural fruit and vegetables you will have also bought yourself 90% of the ingredients you need to make up some natural home remedies for skin care. Give it a go! Once you start you won’t stop.

You can also try some softening and anti-aging skin serums rich in essential fatty acids that lock in moisture maintaining plump healthy skin cells.

These serums are especially beneficial for dry dehydrated skin. They plump out skin cells making skin appear younger softer and dewier.

Make a basic serum using almond oil and rose hip oil half and half ratio. Add to this essential oils like carrot seed, lavender, neroli or frankincense to nourish and repair skin. By adding oils like tamanu and camellia oil you can stimulate cell production and therefore skin renewal.

Vitamin C rich oils like carrot seed are protective and repairing. Some oils like wheatgerm, starflower (borage) and avocado oil are very rich in vitamins like vitamin E and C, both powerful antioxidants that protect skin against premature ageing from sun, environmental and free radical damage.

There are many serums you can make to suit your specific skin type, customised for your unique skin. Once you know what to use, you can create luxurious yet low cost products for your skin. You can even make these into moisturisers with the addition of beeswax, aloe vera and water for light fluffy face and body lotions or a rich night moisturizer.

The benefits of homemade skin care products are almost endless. Most of the much hyped "active" ingredients you hear about in expensive skin care products can be found in oils, extracts and even fruits, nuts, seeds and cooking/grocery items in your home.
