We get it ladies, sensitive skin is tough to deal with. Every time you try a new skin product you have to check if it works for your skin and make sure it doesn’t give you a breakout. If this is you, if you suffer from redness, itching or acne well, then you have sensitive skin.
Here we have 5 DIY natural face masks that you can make at home to treat sensitive skin...
Aloe vera and tea tree oil
Aloe Vera and tea tree oil is the powerful duo if you suffer with severe acne. Both contain anti inflammatory agents which soothe your irritated skin.
Mix a few drops of tea tree oil in 2-3 spoons of aloe Vera gel and apply it on your face. Let it sit for 5 minutes and then clean off the mixture. This works as a serum and mask in one. Use this twice a week and apply aloe vera gel daily.
Turmeric and multani mitti
We’ve all had our grandmothers apply turmeric to our injuries when we tripped while playing. Why? Turmeric has strong healing agents. Mix half a spoon of turmeric with one spoon of multani mitti. Add rose water if you have oily skin and add milk or yoghurt if you have dry skin. Multani mitti will remove impurities and turmeric will heal your troubled skin. Leave the mixture on your skin till it dries and wash off. Use it once a week.
Rose water and turmeric
Mix in rose water with a little turmeric for spot treatments. If you want to target only your troubled areas, use a little bit of the paste of this mixture. Take a cotton swab and apply a small amount on your pimples or scars. Rose water gets rid of scars while turmeric fights bacteria causing acne. Leave it on till it dries and rinse. Use this as many times as you like for spot treatment.
Saffron and sandalwood.
Sandalwood is a great natural exfoliant. It was used in place of soap in the medieval ages. Take a spoon of sandalwood powder and mix saffron in it. Add some milk to make a runny paste. This mask is great for hyperpigmentation, acne scars, and dullness. Saffron brightens skin and makes it glow while sandalwood scrubs out the dirt. If you’re aiming for Korean glass skin, this is the mask for you.
