Summer Skincare - 3 DIY Skin Treatments
Avocado Face Mask
This summer-inspired face mask uses avocado, egg and banana to soften and tighten skin, promoting a younger, wrinkle-reduced complexion over time.
What you'll need: 1/2 banana, 1/2 ripe avocado, 1 egg.
Cut up half a banana, half an avocado and crack open an egg into a bowl. Make sure your avocado is soft and ripe.
Mix all of your ingredients together until a puree is formed. Bananas provide skin-tightening and blemish-reducing benefits, while avocado softens skin and the egg brightens and smoothes wrinkles.
Don't be afraid to get creative! Depending on your skin type or benefits desired, tailor your at-home beauty treatments to deliver the best results for you.
Papaya Face Mask
Known for its skin-brightening qualities, papaya is great for treating a dull, tired complexion.
What you'll need: 3 tablespoons of mashed papaya, 1/3 cup of oatmeal, 1 tablespoon of honey, 1/2 lemon (optional).
Mash up the papaya into a puree before adding in honey, which is rich in antioxidants and anti-aging properties and oatmeal, a natural exfoliant and redness reducer.
Mix the ingredients together and finish off with lemon juice if you desire stronger skin-brightening effects.
All-Natural Eye Treatments
Forget pricy eye creams, give yourself an instant lift the natural way by either rubbing coconut oil around and under your eyes to prevent wrinkles or place cold cucumbers on your eyes for 5-10 minutes to reduce puffiness.
