Best Christmas Face Masks
With Christmas Day here, you’re probably looking forward to time to rest after a long and busy holiday shopping season. With endless trips to the mall, wrapping, planning, and cooking now taken care of, it’s time to officially relax before your guests start arriving for dinner. Here are some amazing face masks which capture the spirit of the season:
1) Honey Sugar Facial Scrub:
Start off with gently cleansed and towel dried skin
Mix together 1 tsp of sugar and 3 tbsp of honey into a thick mixture, and gently apply to your face.
Leave on for about 25 minutes, before rinsing off. You will now rub the mask into your skin for anywhere from 20 (for sensitive skin) to 45 seconds (regular skin type).
2) Cranberry Anti-Aging Face Mask:
Cranberries are called a “superfruit” for a reason- despite their small size, they come packed with antioxidants.
Combine 1 cup of fresh cranberries, 1 cup of seedless red grapes, 2 tsp grapefruit juice, and a small envelope of unflavoured gelatin into a mixture.
Leave the mixture in the fridge for 45 minute, before removing and letting it sit for 10 minutes.
Apply to dry and clean skin and leave on for 15 minutes before rinsing off.
3) Apple and Honey Mask:
With apples being full of nourishing vitamins, you can bet that this mask will wake you up on Christmas morning!
Blend one cored apple in a blender, adding 2 tbsp of honey into the mixture.
Leave on for anywhere from 10-15 minutes- gorgeous skin is just around the corner.
4) Apple and Cinnamon Facial Mask:
This mask is a great solution for oily or easily irritated sensitive skin.
Combine one peeled and grated apple with a ½ tsp of whipped cream, 1 tsp of honey, 1 tbsp of oatmeal, and a ½ tsp of cinnamon.
Mix all ingredients together into a paste, and leave the paste on your skin for 10 minutes.
5) Honey Face Mask for Acne Prone Skin:
Combine 3 tsp of honey with ½ a tsp of cinnamon for a festive at-home acne remedy.
Leave your mask on for anywhere from 10 minutes to a half hour for the best results!
