Homemade face masks

If you are looking for some terrific natural ways to keep your skin clean, hydrated and nourished, choose homemade beauty treatments that you can make in your own kitchen.

Oily skin
If your skin is oily, rinse your face daily with a combination of 1/2 cup of tomato juice and one teaspoon of lemon juice. This mixture will help reduce the overproduction of oil, improving your skin's texture and shiny appearance. Be sure that you aren't allergic to tomatoes before trying this home remedy.

Normal skin
A great face mask for normal skin can be made by combining 1/4 cup of oatmeal with 100% grapefruit juice. Just add enough juice to create a thick paste.

Spread the mixture over your face and neck. Leave on for 20 minutes, then rinse with warm water, followed by a splash of cool water. Use this treatment once a week to help your skin stay balanced and revitalized.

Dry skin
Mash a small banana with two tablespoons of plain yogurt and a teaspoon of all-natural vegetable oil to create a face mask for dry skin.

Spread the mixture over your entire face, paying extra attention to dry areas. Lay back and leave the mask on for 30 minutes. Rinse with warm water. This once-a-week treatment is excellent to hydrate dry skin, particularly in the winter months.
