You are probably noticing that your complexion could use some extra help around this time of year from the effects of summer. Though I have other great DIY face mask recipes that I use, I do like to experiment with new ingredients and combinations to see the difference. Therefore, I want to share a new DIY face mask for dry skin that can do the trick to moisturize and give your complexion an overall bloom with healthy vibrance. However, I do believe most complexions can also benefit.
For this DIY face mask recipe, I use rosehip oil as one of the ingredients. This is completely different from a rose essential oil, which is highly concentrated and the more expensive. Rose oil has the ability to soothe skin, moisturize, help with inflammation and scars while also improving circulation to give the complexion a rosy glow. It also is what comes from the rose flower itself (Rosa damascena) and is considered an essential oil. On the other hand, rosehip oil is derived from the wild rose ( Rosa moschata) and is considered more of a carrier oil. However, both offer wonderful benefits for the beauty of your skin.
I also use whole milk Greek yogurt since it has a thicker texture and fabulous nutrients in its vitamins, minerals, proteins, and fats for moisturizing, inflammation, healing existing pimples or a skin infection, brightening, toning, disinfecting as well as help in the battle against aging.
Raw honey, especially manuka is another ingredient because it is especially potent for beautifying the complexion due to its antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, antiviral, antifungal properties, and its contribution as a humectant.
Last of all, I added just a small amount of coconut oil since it is a sensational source of an antioxidant, vitamin E for anti-aging. It also helps serve as an extra carrier oil to better safeguard against a skin reaction for sensitive complexions like mine at this time of year.
I really hope that you try this DIY face mask for dry skin as well as my others. I like to treat my complexion and rotate my recipes, depending on what ingredients that I have at home at the time. You can find other wonderful DIY face masks such as my complexion revival mask and normalizing face mask for skin types in skin care recipes in my DIY category.
DIY Face Mask for Dry Skin
1 tablespoon whole milk Greek yogurt
1 ½ teaspoons raw honey, preferably manuka
3 drops of rosehip oil
½ teaspoons coconut oil
Combine and mix well all the ingredients before applying to a clean face.
Go relax once you have this DIY face mask on for about 25 to 30 minutes.
Rinse off with tepid water. You can use your fingers, but you might prefer to use your face cleaning cloth for a gentle exfoliation for clearing away the dead skin cells along with the mask ingredients.
