Since we all have different skin types, accordingly we have different types of facial masks.
Facial mask for normal skin.
Most of the people have normal skin type which is neither too oily nor too dry but rather a good balance of moist and balanced equal tone. Generally, this type of skin doesn’t require much additional care rather needs masks that can deeply clean and purify pores.

Turmeric as a spice is often underestimated but it has a variety of positive outcome on the skin, it is packed with antioxidants, it has anti-inflammatory effects and evens out the skin tone, leaving it fresh and equalized. Honey is well known as an antibacterial substance also full of antioxidants that leaves skin soft and full of moist. And last the lemon juice that is filled up with vitamin C that plays role in collagen production, therefore it has a contribution in antiaging.

Facial mask for dry skin
Dry skin is a common condition and it occurs more in elderly people with decreased secretion of skin oils and lubricants.

Facial mask for oily skin
Oily skin has a characteristic look with enlarged pores and shiny layer on the face because of the increased secretion of sebum or excessive oil. Usually, the most problematic zone on the face is the so-called “T-zone” composed of the forehead, nose, and chin that are prone to develop blackheads, acne, pimples and congested pores. For this type of skin is essential to cleanse twice a day and exfoliate the dead skin on the surface. More than useful can be ingredients such as oats, lemons, different fruits, and clay.
For this mask, you will need organic honey and tomato pulp. Tomatoes are having constricting effects on the enlarged pores and they dissolve extra oil from the skin.
Instructions: we mix equal portions of the honey and the tomato, then apply it on the clean skin especially on the “T-zone”, afterward we wait 15 minutes and rinse off with warm water.
