Masks according to your skin type

For dry skin

We recommend an avocado and banana mask, for which you will only need avocado, banana and honey.

At first, you can melt the honey a little so that the mask is warm, which helps it penetrate better into your pores and thus integrates more easily.

Then you just have to cut half an avocado, mix it with the banana and honey and integrate the ingredients until it forms a homogeneous mass. You must place it on your face for 10 minutes and then remove it. This will act as a homemade moisturizer.

If your skin is oily

The oatmeal and lemon mask is perfect for you, for which you will need two tablespoons of yogurt, a little lemon juice and two tablespoons of oatmeal.

We will have to mix all the ingredients very well in a bowl and apply it to the face as a massage.

This to obtain a natural exfoliator and clean the pores of those impurities. It should rest on your skin for 15 minutes and then remove it with plenty of water.

If your skin is combination

The antioxidant mask is ideal, this mask will help you keep your face young and healthy for a long time.

You should mix a tablespoon of cocoa powder making sure that it does not contain any sugar and a tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil.

You should also add a little of your usual face cream. Mix well and spread evenly over the face. This should act for 15 minutes and then a hydrated and luminous skin will result.
