Want the recipe for beautiful skin?

26th February 2013

Although we can be wary of the DIY home remedies, homemade facemasks can be a great way of looking after your skin and ensuring it receives the nutrients it needs to keep it healthy.

Below are three different recipes designed to improve the look and feel of your skin. The success of each recipe is dependent on your skin type, so if you're unsure then contact one of our trained experts who can advise you on the best way to treat your skin.

Face Mask for Dry Skin

If you're struggling with particularly dry skin then mashing up a ripe avocado with a small teaspoon of honey can do wonders. The hydrating properties in honey combined with the vitamin E packed into avocados will help keep skin supple and regenerated. Both ingredients are also easily absorbed making it perfect for dry skin.

Face Mask for Oily Skin

If you struggle with acne or breakouts then a plum and yoghurt facemask can help reduce the amount of oil your skin produces. Simply mixing together poached plums and mashing them together with plain yoghurt can prevent bacteria spreading, leading to acne. Vitamins A & C, better known as anti-oxidants found in these foods help to strengthen the skins elasticity.

Face Mask for Combination Skin

Combination skin can be a nightmare to treat and we recommend using a banana facemask to help moisturise whilst also controlling oily skin. To make the facemask blend two tablespoons of honey, two bananas and some ground almonds and apply to the face. Honey is known for its medicinal properties as it reduces the redness of pimples and helps to dry them up.

Of course, these recipes are only recommended in between regular skin treatments and if you find you aren't seeing the benefits, check out the treatments we can offer.
