Why Make A Homemade Face Mask?

Who needs expensive industrial made face masks if you have a banana or yogurt in your fridge at hand, right? But are these DIY face masks in any way clinically proven to work or do they in any way contribute in any improvement of your skin, let along make your skin more youthful you might ask?
Well, in fact…..they do, but why?
As most industrial face mask contain some if not all ingredients close to many normal vegetable products, a banana or yogurt extract (mayonnaise, egg and oat meal fiber or even vinegar) will have a similar or even the same (and in some cases even a better!) effect.
Apply any normal household vegetable with a little enhancement of either water or mixed with each other to your face and wait the usual 10-15 minutes and you will feel fresh and rejuvenated for a little while and you might even experience small but significant improvements in your skin such as a reduced acne effect or smaller wrinkle reduce as the natural composure of these vegetables will effect your skin by clearing any surface toxins from the day. Some vegetables even have the capacity to penetrate in your skin as to soften the skin which might be the reason of smaller wrinkle reduce, who would have thought that?
Well the industrial face mask producers!
Here are some examples:
*Avocado – honey – oat (or oat bran) = mix these together and apply it in a massage like motion on your skin and leave it for 10-15 minutes and it will quench your dry skin as honey and the composure of avocado in the above described mix are an excellent humectant which means that it will help moisturizing your skin without feeling oily!
Or this one:
*A table spoon of plain yogurt – a table spoon of honey and a table spoon of turmeric powder
Similar to milk, yogurt is filled with lactic acid which can have a visible difference to your skin by lifting away rough and lackluster surface cells to uncover much newer, brighter ones. Leave it for 15-20 minutes and you will feel rejoiced!
So while you always have to be careful what you put on your skin it is safe to say that most of the DIY and/or home made face mask recipes can actually help make your skin softer – reduce skin abnormalities and make you look younger, even if it is only for a short while and that is what matters!
