An Ultra Hydrating DIY Facial Mask
During these warm summer days, there’s no doubt that sunbathing is a favorite activity. However, each time you’re exposed to the sun’s harmful rays, protecting your skin is critical because of the damaging effects that they can have on our skin. Our skin can be easily dried out by the sun, requiring extra moisture during the summer. A great way to combat this is a simple DIY recipe for an ultra hydrating facial mask. This recipe comes from the experts at Skana spa of the New York resort, Turning Stone.
There are various ingredients right in your kitchen that can work to moisturize and soothe dry skin. For years, oatmeal has been a go-to item for natural skin repair. Oatmeal is rich in vitamins and nutrients, like omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin K, and more. This rich nutrient content works to protect your skin internally and externally. Items like creamy, natural yogurt contain a plethora of vitamins that collaborate to repair parched skin and make it smoother. Yogurt’s smooth texture naturally nourishes your skin and feels great while doing so. The third active ingredient in this DIY mask is honey. Honey is another item full of several vitamins and is renowned for undeniable healing properties related to congestion, sore throat, and skin care. Honey contains natural compounds that restore skin and protect it from UV rays through its immense vitamin C content.
What you need
1 cup natural yogurt
½ cup oatmeal
1 tablespoon honey
To begin creating this mask, simply combine all the ingredients in a mixing bowl, mixing until a consistent texture is achieved. After removing any makeup, apply the mixture to your face for about 10-15 minutes. Then, gently cleanse your face with warm water and pat dry. Apply your favorite facial moisturizer afterwards to further increase skin’s moisture.
Clearly, creating this ultra hydrating, restorative mask is simple. With the immense vitamin and nutrient content offered by each of the mask ingredients, there’s no denying the remarkable skin protective advantages this make will provide. Simply applying this mask before a relaxing day at the beach can protect and moisturize your skin for hours, while also providing a beautiful, natural glow.
