3 Hydrating Face Masks For Harmattan Season

Harmattan period can mean bad news for your skin. It suffers from a constant feeling of irritation and dehydration that can lead you to emptying out a bottle of moisturiser to save your face from looking like a cracked wall.

But can you go that extra mile to keep your skin hydrated besides sticking to moisturising only?Yes, this is when you can take 5 minutes out of your schedule to hit the kitchen and prepare a hydrating mask for your face. Here are some moisturising face masks you can try…

 

 

Honey and almond oil: All you really need to do is mix 2 tablespoons of honey along with 2 tablespoons of almond oil. Blend this mixture and spread it evenly on your face. Leave it for 20 minutes and wash off with a mild cleanser.

Why it’s good for your skin:

Honey has the ability to retain moisture while almond oil is extremely rich in Vitamin E, which naturally keeps dry skin lubricated.

Cucumber and aloe vera: You need to mix 2 tablespoons of aloe vera gel and ½ blended cucumber for this concoction. Massage this paste on your face gently and relax for about 30 minutes. Wash off with cold water.

Why it’s good for your skin:

Due to its high water content, cucumber helps in keeping your skin hydrated. Aloe vera is a natural humectant that’s non-greasy and works to moisturise both oily and dry skin.

Papaya (pawpaw) and strawberry: Blend 2 large strawberries with 2 tablespoons of ripe papaya. Let it turn into a paste and apply this on your face and let it stay for at least 15 minutes.

Why it’s good for your skin

I bet you didn’t know that papaya contains papain enzymes and Vitamin A that not only remove dead skin and also rejuvenate it. Moreover, strawberries are full of Vitamin C, which works wonders to hydrate skin.
