Self Care at Home: DIY Masks to Soothe Your Face
We are all sitting at home these days with, most times, not much to do. You work from home all day and just feel blah after not changing out of your pajamas from the night before. You stay at home on the weekends watching your favorite TV shows and movies. You’ve turned into a world-class baker with all of the Tik Tok recipes you've been making. But now it’s time for a little self-care at home. Joanna has created multiple DIY masks that you can make at home with just a few ingredients that will soothe your face and make you feel revived and refreshed!
There’s really nothing more soothing for your face than a mask. Masks moisturize, de-puff, promote elasticity, and relieve skin sensitivities. The fifteen to twenty minutes you spend wearing a mask is also the time you're forced to drop all chores and errands and just sit back and relax. If you don’t have masks at home, you can easily make them with the following simple recipes. Just combine the ingredients in a small bowl and mix to form a paste. For one minute, rub the paste onto your skin using the tips of your fingers in upward strokes, then leave it on for ten to fifteen minutes. Rinse with tepid water. Don’t forget to mix up a fresh mask every time you plan to use one!
