During
the fall and winter, I easily get dry, sensitive skin. I get flakes
all over my nose, dry, tight cheeks and a dull, greyish, lifeless
complexion.

And, though usually my skin is not very reactive, during the cold
months, I have to be very careful about any new products I want to
use. Even the skincare lines that are supposed to be mild, organic
and sensitive-skin-friendly can make my skin red, itchy and
irritated.

That
is why I love natural
face masks with honey! The following face mask keeps
all these things under control. It is one of my favorite skincare
products ever – gentle, but deep-nourishing, moisturizing,
restoring and revitalizing. Plus, it has some badass anti-aging
properties (it’s never too soon to start preventing premature aging
signs).

If
you have all the ingredients (and most of us do at all times), you
need less than 5 minutes and practically no effort to mix up this
mask, and here’s how:

The Best DIY Face Mask Dry, Sensitive Skin

You
will need:

Step
1:

First
mash a piece of banana with a fork – just enough to get a
tablespoon of banana puree. Mash well until you get rid of all the
lumps – the smoother your mask is, the better your skin can absorb
it.

Banana
is a very nourishing fruit with tones of benefits for your skin. And
its texture makes it perfect for natural face masks.

Step
2:

Add
the honey, jojoba oil and lemon juice. Mix everything well, to get a
smooth paste.

DIY
face masks with honey have anti-inflammatory, anti-aging,
antimicrobial, healing and restoring effects to the skin.

Jojoba
oil
is one of the best natural moisturizers, as its texture is
very similar to the texture of sebum our skin naturally produces.

Lemon
juice
refreshes and purifies the skin, fights acne and
blackheads, brightens the skin and fades acne marks and dark spots.

Step
3:

Add
the oatmeal powder. The best would be to use colloidal
oatmeal, but you can also use finely ground rolled oats or oat flour.
But make sure that the product you are using is organic – you don’t
want any pesticides and other toxic chemicals on your skin.

Add
just enough oatmeal powder to get a smooth mixture you can easily
apply to your skin. But don’t add any more than that – your face
mask shouldn’t be too thick. Mix well.

Step
4:

Wash
your face with warm water and a gentle face cleanser. You can also
use some mild face scrub to exfoliate your skin. That way, your skin
will even better absorb the mask.

Apply
the mask to your skin in as thick a layer as you can. Leave it on for
20 – 25 minutes. Then wipe it off with a clean tissue and rinse off
the residue. Apply a face cream while your skin is still slightly
damp, to lock in the moisture. That way, your skin will stay smooth,
youthful, healthy and well-hydrated for much, much longer.
