DIY : Do Homemade Masks Really Work? – Naomi Bennett – Medium
Although on average the ready made face masks did increase the moisture in our skin, the homemade masks were more for me. They all felt very natural and were a fun family activity. My biggest complaint about the homemade face masks were that they smelled like food… on my face. However, this was somewhat of a small price to pay compared to the problems I encountered with the ready made face masks.
I also noticed that in the homemade face masks, there was always a component of honey included. This is because honey is very diverse in the skin-saving properties it contains. For example, honey helps with breakouts, slowing down aging, helps with a glowy complexion due to its antibacterial and antioxidant properties.
My favorite face mask out of all of the ones that I tried was the avocado, honey, and yogurt mask. This was a general family consensus (everyone in my family tried it) and we all agree that it was the most refreshing, natural, and moisturizing. If you’re looking for a ready made face mask, I would recommend using the ShineTree Aloe and Essence Mask. This was the most moisturizing out of all of the store-bought masks that I used, and I enjoyed using it very much.
If you happen to try any of these face masks or any of your own: please let me know! I would love your opinion on your favorite. Don’t forget to clap and follow!
