If you are one of those whose hectic lifestyles don’t allow much time to pamper your skin, then we have something to help you out. Here are six overnight facemasks that will work on your skin while you are asleep.
Start with mixing two tablespoons each of honey and oatmeal. Add a few drops of rosewater (optional) to this paste and apply it overnight. Scrub off this mask in the morning and rinse it with lukewarm water. Oatmeal is a natural exfoliator that removes dead cells and honey helps to deep moisturise you skin. This beauty mask can work wonders for oily and acne prone skin, and should be applied twice a week.
This one is super simple and effective, and is recommended for dry to normal skin type. Before crashing on your bed, massage almond oil on your skin in circular motion. It’s loaded with vitamin E that helps to nourish your skin to the core, reduces dark circles, sun tan, heals chapped lips and even reduces signs of aging. Plus, it’s a great substitute for hand and foot creams.
For those with combination or oily skin, all you need is an aloe vera plant at home or gel on your bedside to take care of your skin issues. Mix it with a few drops of rose water and apply a thin layer of this potion every day before sleeping. Aloe vera help to soothe sun burn, reduces acne scars, moisturises and brighten up the skin.
Brew one or two tea bags of green tea for about 10 minutes and let this water cool. Mix a tablespoon each of this green tea water and potato juice, and apply it over your face before sleeping. This magic potion helps to reduce pigmentation, sun tan, and clear pores. Plus, it also works on dark circles, puffed eyes and helps to even the skin tone.
All you need to do is add a tablespoon each of honey and yoghurt, and apply this paste overnight. Yoghurt contains lactic acid that works on your dead skin cells and prevents breakouts. Honey helps to nourish your skin and gives you a natural glow.
Take two tablespoons of cucumber juice and mix it with a tablespoon of olive oil. Apply this mask overnight and wash it off with cold water next morning. Cucumber has cooling properties that soothes skin irritations, and helps to restore the natural pH balance of skin. On the other hand, olive oil helps hydrate the skin and makes it supple.
