9 Home-Made Face Masks for Winter Skin Care ...

There's nothing like a home-made face mask to make you feel alive again! Face masks are one of the most ancient forms of beauty treatment and helps maintain smooth, silky, and beautiful skin. Today, all-natural face masks are all the rage because, well, who wants to use toxic commercial products?! These home-made remedies will help your nourish, cleanse, heal and protect your skin! Please, feel free to comment with any of YOUR home-made face mask tips!

1 Avocado Mask

An avocado mask is perfect for dry skin that may become very irritated in the winter. It is easy to make: mash the flesh of avocado with a fork, add a touch of extra-virgin olive oil, and apply this smooth, fragrant mixture onto your face. This nourishing mask will supply your skin with a whole range of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and softening agents to fight winter dryness.

2 Cultured Milk Mask

A cultured milk mask is a simple and effective cure for tired skin. Just apply a bit of natural yogurt, buttermilk, sour cream, or kefir on your face avoiding areas around the eyes. Relax for 10-15 minutes and rinse your face with cool water. This mask softens, rejuvenates, and restores a natural pH balance of your skin, thus, protecting it from negative influences of winter air.

3 Egg White Mask

An** egg white mask** is good for oily skin with large pores. Smooth a beaten egg white all over your face, let rest for half-an-hour, and rinse with water. This mask will refresh and tighten your oily skin and will make it look much healthier than before. In the winter, it will create a natural barrier to protect your skin from harsh winds and frost.

4 Oatmeal Mask

An oatmeal mask is a great remedy for skin beaten by a cold wind. To make it, mix together in equal proportions raw oatmeal flakes, egg yolk, and honey. Keep the mask on your face for about 20 minutes, wash with lukewarm water, and pat dry. After the application, your facial skin should feel very soft, refreshed, and healed.

5 Banana Mask

If you have combination skin suffering from winter elements, try a softening banana mask. Mix mashed banana with fresh sweet cream and apply this wonderful mask all over your face for 30 minutes. It will smooth, soften, moisturise and nourish your skin whenever necessary and will make you forget about the cold, harsh, and nasty winter outside!

6 Strawberry and Lemon Juice

This mask is great for those who suffer from redness problems in the winter weather! Take a handful of strawberries, 2 tbsp. of lemon juice and 1 tbsp of honey and blend it all in a blender. When it's a smooth paste, start to apply it on your face! Leave it for 20 minutes before washing it off. Strawberries actually contain salicylic acid which will help prevent your skin from breaking out!

7 Honey and Raw Milk

This is probably one of the easiest face masks you can make! All you need to do is take 5-6 tbsp. of raw milk and mix it together with 2 tbsp. of honey. Apply the paste on your face (and neck) and massage for five minutes. Then, allow it to sit on your face for 20 minutes before washing it off with lukewarm water. The mask will moisturize your skin and is the easiest way to treat dry and rough skin during the winter season!

8 Moisturizing Papaya Mask

Another good way to moisturize your skin is with this papaya mask! It only requires two ingredients: one ripe, mashed papaya and one teaspoon of olive oil. Apply it on your face and leave it for 15 minutes before rinsing it off! Your skin will feel super smooth and silky after this mask!

9 Chocolate Facial Mask

I know what you're thinking: CHOCOLATE?! Yes, this is real. Dark chocolate is a healthy choice, and not just to eat. When applied topically, there are compounds in the chocolate that can benefit the skin! You'll need 1/3 cup cocoa powder, 1/4 cup honey, 2 tbsp cream or plain yogurt, 3 tsp oats. Blend everything in the blender until it's smooth and then apply it on your face for 15-20 minutes!

There you have it! These are just nine home-made face masks that your skin will thank you for this winter! Have you tried any of these?

hi. . i have oily skin, my complexion is fair n having brown spots also ,in winters i have acne on my face.now tell me plz what should i do???plz reply i m so worried


I purchased the ANTIOXIDANT Berry Masque (from the Lady Soma brand) after doing ALOT of research on the ingredients. Use on face, chest and hands. The first application was not dramatic as far as results go; but I use daily and the results are fantastic. It took me about a week to get the impressive results. I have very dry skin. My serums and creams were not penetrating into my skin to give me a hydrated look. Now I can easiy tell when the serums and creams are penetrating. My skin is much more even in color, hydrated, healthy looking. I apply the mask work into my skin for a few seconds and leave on for 15 minutes. That took over a week to change, but wow I can wear lower cut tops now and my skin is radiant! I have stocked up on this product, I never want to run out. Finally a product line that works!

i have a dull looking face, and dark spots on creases on the sides of my nose, dark neck... any suggestions? for the egg facial mask, do you use the egg white or the yolk? and how often are you suppose to use this facial mask? thanks!




Since it's winter, my skin has been really dry, but a couple days ago, I tried the Egg Yolk & Honey mask and after i toned and moisturized, my skin was smooth and soft and it has been a week and my skin hasnt been peeling! What you do is you separate the egg, if your face is dry, use the yolk, if your face is oily, use the white. So i used the yolk, and you add about 1 tsp. of honey (or 1 tsp. of lemon juice if your face is oily) and leave it on for 15-20 minutes and wash it off! It works WONDERS!!!


Thank you Sheila.


hai i look dark in the day time and i look fairer in the night. i have acne too so please suggest me some remedie to get rid of it


hi, I have a very bad sensitive skin.. it shows very greasy in winter.. please suggest me a pack to avoid the pimples and greasiness..


hi, my skin is dry in the winter.please sugges me any cream & face pack to use in winter season.


what about a dry red winter face ?:(


i become tan very soon.is there any treatment for this..or any mask that can help me to get rid of this tan skin.i have got a very nornal skin sumtims its dry.


yeah, the bananas and egg whites work really well. I have allergies, so i have tried looking eyes. i have blue circles and these impossible fine lines from loose skin. nothing worked for me. but the bananas and egg whites did help, and if that helped, that says something because TRUST me, my fine lines are impossible. but yeah those two really reduce the appearance of the lines and tightens skin.


I have very dark circles around the eyes and dark tone on the forehead,but i have not yet found remedies in this site,please help me. thanks


The avocado mask sounds like something I would enjoy having on my face to pamper my skin with. I will definitely give it a try. Nice post!


I should have tried this banana mask when I was last winter in Siberia, maybe I will keep it in mind for next time trip
