Hydrating facial mask - care for your dry skin

Hydrating facial mask is a must when skin is exposed to wind, cold, or any harsh environmental conditions.

Hydrating our skin is a major part of body care as the liquids we consume do not reach the outer layers of our skin.

That is the main reason we use facial exfoliants, as well as hydrating facial masks.

They are powerful enough to penetrate the deeper layers of the skin simultaneously nourishing and rejuvenating them.
A facial toner that you can prepare at home, is a great introduction to a hydrating facial mask.

The following facial mask recipes will replenish your dry skin and its deeper layers, leaving your skin feeling hydrated and looking healthy and glowing.

Egg and honey hydrating facial mask

< b>

  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup of coconut oil
  • 1 tespoon of honey
You will also need a small, plastic cup with a lid.

Scramble the egg and gradually add honey and coconut oil. The mass should look like mayonnaise. If it is too thick, add more coconut oil. If it is too runny, add a bit more honey.

Pour the mass into a plastic cup, close the cup tightly, and leave in the fridge overnight.

This mask is ready to be applied the next day. Scoop up some of the mask and freely apply all over the face. Leave it to rest for 10 minutes and then wash off with lukewarm water.

Keep the rest of the mask in the freezer and use any time your dried and tired face needs a moisture boost.

Refreshing tomato mask


  • 1/4 peeled and seedless tomato. Chop it.
  • 3 teaspoons of yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon peeled and then grated cucumber
  • 1 teaspoon of aloe vera gel
  • 3 teaspoons of oatmeal (finely ground)
Additional ingredients are 2 mint leaves, fresh and crushed so the essential oils run out of the leaves.


Mix all the ingredients in a large bowl. Apply on the face and leave on for about 10 minutes. Wash off with lukewarm water.

Cucumber moisture lock facial mask


  • 1/2 cup of peeled, grated cucumber
  • 1/2 cups of peeled and grated avocado
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 2 teaspoons of milk powder


Blend all the ingredients until the mass is consistent. Apply on the face and let it rest for 30 minutes. Wash your face alternating warm and cold water.

Nourishing facial mask

Our reader Shizna shares this recipe with us:

Home made face mask for dry skin can be created by mixing 10 ml honey with the yolk of an egg and 5 grams of dried milk powder. The yolk of an egg will provide nourishment for the skin while the honey will help restore the pH balance. Mix the ingredients in a bowl and apply to the face using a flat wide brush. Avoid the eye and lip areas. Clean off with water after 15-20 minutes to find more supple skin which will be hydrated and look much younger.

Thanks Shizna!
