Added to that, this face mask contains the healing powers of honey and anti-inflammatory properties of turmeric for healthy, glowing skin. This face mask is suitable for all skin types.
Combine these ingredients together until smooth. After cleansing your face, pat your skin dry, and apply a thin layer over your face and neck. Leave it on for 15 minutes then rinse with lukewarm water. For best results, use this face mask once a week.

Green tea is a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory that can help your skin in a multitude of ways. Besides protecting your skin from premature aging, green tea can also reduce redness, soothe irritation, and fight off bacteria that causes blemishes. While green tea is typically known as an anti-aging ingredient, it's also excellent at soothing irritated skin.
This face mask also contains sugar to act as an exfoliant, which helps to remove dead skin and excess oil which can lead to blackheads, whiteheads, and pustules.
After cleansing your face, brew 50ml of green tea and refrigerate for one to two hours until chilled. Add the palm sugar to the chilled tea, and mix thoroughly until the mixture thickens. Add the oil if you have dry skin. For best results, use this face mask once a week.

In the fall, your skin is more prone to getting dry and dull since the air is drier, indoor heaters rob your skin of moisture, and you're not getting as much vitamin D.
You can replenish this lost moisture by pampering your skin with one of the above face masks. Whether you go DIY or store-bought, the most important thing is that you take good care of your skin.
To get the most out of these skincare products and homemade masks, make sure you incorporate them regularly in your skincare routine. Another important thing to bear in mind: if you use these face masks in the day time, always remember to apply sunscreen before leaving the house.
If you have any skin concerns like eczema or rosacea, visit your dermatologist before trying any of the above DIY face masks to check they're safe for your skin.
