Keeping your skin looking and feeling good can be a difficult task. While perfect skin just does not exist (believe us!) it is possible to try out different products which will keep your skin in the best condition possible. 

Many skincare products can be pricey, however we have done our fair share of research over the years and discovered that you don’t always need to spend a lot of money to treat your skin. You may be surprised to learn that a lot of products which are good for your skin are sitting in your kitchen as we speak.

Here are a few ideas to get your creative juices flowing.

For Normal Skin: Yogurt and Honey mask

You will need:

-2 tbs of plain greek yogurt

-2 tbs of organic Honey

-2 drops of wheatgerm oil (optional)

If you are lucky enough to have normal skin, then face masks would not be the priority on your skincare list. Normal skin can be defined as neither oily nor dry, you generally don’t get spots, and you never have a reaction to any products – lucky you!

If you think you have normal skin then all it needs is a little boost from time to time. Whipping up a face mask made of a few dollops of plain greek yogurt, 2 tbs of organic honey, and a drop of wheatgerm oil (if you have any lying around), will do the trick to bring tired skin back to life. Leave this mask on for 10-20 minutes.

For Oily/Spot Prone Skin: Manuka and Cinnamon mask

You will need:

-3 tbs of manuka honey (any strength)

-2 tbs of cinnamon

– 2 drops of tea tree oil

If you have oily skin you will know the struggle of dealing with breakouts. Along with this you will also find it impossible to keep your skin from looking shiny throughout the day, and blackheads are probably permanent residents on your nose also, ugh! Oily skin is the most common skin type among teenagers, thank those hormones! But it is possible to keep any unwanted visitors (spots, we’re looking at you) under control. Manuka honey comes in many different strengths, so the highest you can get your hands on the better. Mix two tablespoons of this with a little bit of cinnamon and two drops of tea tree oil and you will start to see your spots dry up and your complexion even out. Keep this mask on for no longer than 10 minutes.

For Dry Skin:  Avocado and Egg mask

You will need:

-1/2 avocado

-1 egg yolk

Dry skin can be another pesky skin type, while you may not get too many breakouts, you can experience flaky skin, making it difficult to apply make up, and overall making you look tired and dull. It is possible however to bring a little life and hydration to your complexion, all with the help of two magical kitchen items. Simply mash up half of an avocado along with 1 egg yolk and stir it up until it has become a sticky paste. Leave it on for 10-15 minutes.

For Combination Skin: Banana and Sugar mask

You will need:

-1/2 banana

-4 tbs of brown sugar

Combination skin is a super common skin type, it’s rare that anyone ever fits in one skin type box, so if you experience an oily t-zone but dry cheeks, then it is likely that you have combination skin. You can both nourish and exfoliate your skin by mashing up 1 banana and adding in a couple spoonfuls of brown sugar. You can massage this mask into your skin a lot so that it takes off any dry skin, and then leave it on for 15 minutes.

For Sensitive skin: Oat and Honey Mask

You will need:

-2 tbs of ground rolled oats

-3 tbs organic honey

Sensitive skin can be extremely tricky to handle. Sensitive skin can be prone to inflammation, meaning that those with sensitive skin offer suffer from acne, rosacea or contact dermatitis. While you need to be careful with what products you use when you have sensitive skin, a home made face mask can be perfect as the natural products will ensure you don’t react. Mix up 2 tablespoons of ground rolled oats and 2 tablespoons of organic honey and let it work it’s magic on your face for 5-10 minutes.
