After the long months of winter, your skin might be suffering from indoor heat, the wind, cold, and, for some of us, ice and snow. Not only can the colder months leave your skin dry, but it can also result in a dull appearance and visible fine lines. One way to help manage your dry skin is through face masks or steams.
And while there are a number of options on the market, you can also make your own at home. This is a great way to save money and keep a closer eye on the ingredients you apply to your skin.
So, if you have dry or dull skin this winter, you can find my favourite DIY facial remedies below.
Spirulina and Manuka Honey Hydration Mask
I love this mask because it’s incredibly nourishing and very simple to make. I use spirulina, also referred to as blue-green algae, which is packed with antioxidants that have the potential to help with fine lines and wrinkles.
The other ingredient for this mask is manuka honey, which may potentially reduce inflammation and irritation caused by acne. Moreover, manuka honey is a humectant, so it moisturizes the skin, leaving it soft and supple.
- 2 tbsp. manuka honey
- 1 tsp. spirulina powder
- 1 tsp. water or rose water, or any other herbal hydrosol mist
- Mix all ingredients together in a jar or bowl.
- Apply the mixture gently directly to your skin.
- Leave on for 30 minutes.
- Rinse off with water.
