The best type of homemade facial mask to use on combination skin types to help control oil and dryness is my red raspberry honey facial mask. It is packed full of antioxidants, natural antibiotics and moisturizers, and it helps exfoliate, tone and cleanse the skin up beautifully. Best of all, it is very easy to make and use right in your kitchen.
The ingredients you will need to make the red raspberry honey facial mask will be ½ a cup of red raspberries, ½ a cup of honey and a ½ a cup of rolled oats. All these ingredients can be found in any grocery store if you do not already have them. If you can't find fresh red raspberries, you may use frozen ones instead.
Making the Mask
The way to make the red raspberry honey facial mask is by placing the ingredients into a small food processor. If you don't have one use a blender. Once you have the ingredients in the food processor all you need to do is puree and blend the ingredients together until you get a slightly thick syrupy reddish pink facial mask. After, you may pour the mask into a bowl and bring it into a bathroom with you too use.
Using the Mask
When you are ready to use the facial mask the first thing you are going to want to do is splash your face with some warm water for a minute or two to help open up your pores. Once you have done this you can take a handful of the homemade mask and lather it all over your face and skin. It will fill slightly sticky and maybe even a little gritty, but it is very soothing, nourishing, and healing to combination skin.
Once the facial mask is on you will want to leave it on as long as you can. After, you are done with the mask rinse it off with warm water and a face cloth. Your skin will be very soft, oily free and any blemishes should look like they are healing and not as red. Your skin will also look more toned and firmed up. This is also a great facial mask to use for ridding acne.
Skin Beautifying Benefits of the Mask
This facial mask provides so many skin health benefits. The red raspberries contain loads of vitamin C, which is essential for maintaining healthy clear glowing wrinkle free skin.
The honey helps moisturize your skin because it contains natural moisturizers in it, and it helps fight acne and prevent. If you are wondering, "How?" It is because it contains natural antibodies in it that help kill the germs that cause the acne in the first place.
The rolled oats help absorb unwanted oils and impurities from the skin while also lightly exfoliating it. These are the reasons why this is a beneficial facial mask for combination skin types.
I hope this helps some of you out there suffering from combination skin problems find some relief and balance in your skin again.
