Which better time for a homemade face mask for dry skin than winter time? Heater air inside and frosty climate outside – our skin needs to deal with quite the dehydrating environment in these months. So take some time this weekend, mix yourself this easy DIY mask and enjoy a moisturizing effect and a short timeout.
(Short disclaimer: This mask is not vegan and contains honey. If you are looking for alternatives, check out my 6 ideas for a homemade face mask without honey.)
Ingredients for the homemade face mask for dry skin in winter
Naturally our skin can use an extra moisturizing boost in winter. So it makes sense to get out some rich ingredients! As usual with my homemade beauty recipes, you only have to go into your kitchen to pick up the ingredients.
We will need:
- 1/2 cup of yoghurt (without additives, just pure neutral yoghurt)
- 1 ripe banana
- 1 tablespoon of honey
How do these ingredients help winter skin?
All three ingredients will help in moisturizing and softening your skin. Think of it like a homemade moisturizer straight out of the kitchen!
Use your DIY face mask for dry winter skin
After collecting all your ingredients, mash the banana thoroughly and mix everything together. This should give you a thick, creamy paste.
Then, apply the mixture all over your face. Now put some relaxing music on, put your feet up and enjoy your little break for 10 minutes! If you are into visualization, you can even imagine your skin absorbing all the goodies from the mask.
Afterward, just rinse it off with lukewarm water. Generally avoid using hot water, as this will just add to your skin’s dryness. Also, make sure to drink enough! (As if you really needed to hear that again.)
Now your skin should feel refreshed and soft. Even though the effect is great, don’t do this mask too often. First of all, what will you eat if everything lands on your face, rather than in your mouth? Seriously though, while your epidermis benefits a lot from this mask, it can easily get too much. Doing it more than once a week will most likely not give you an increased benefit anyways.
