Whether it is summer or winter season, whether it is dry or humid climate, our skin need care from time to time. Your diet, the skin products you use, the amount of time you spend in the direct sunlight etc. determine the quality and health of your skin. The best for healthy skin are homemade face masks and face washes.

There are several face masks you can use to keep your skin healthy but you don't know which one will suit you until you try it. It is quite obvious that you can't buy so many face masks to test them one by one on your skin. Also, the artificial beauty products have chemicals which can damage your skin

1) Cucumber: 1/2

2) Aloe Vera Gel: 2 tbsp

Peel off the cucumber's outer skin. Cut it into pieces and blend in a mixer to make the puree. Add Aloe Vera gel and again blend it. Try to get fresh Aloe Vera gel. Add rose water or mint leaves to refresh your skin. Now apply this paste directly on face or first refrigerate it 15-30 mins and then apply for cooling effect. Let it dry. Wash your face with cool water.


Cucumber juice treats sunburn and also provides soothing effect. Aloe Vera gel gives hydrating, anti-inflammatory benefits and it is also rich in vitamins A, B, C, D and E. This homemade face mask is best for fresh and glowing skin.

1) Banana: 1/2

2) Oatmeal: 1/3

3) Yogurt: 1/2 tbsp

Mash banana with the help of a spoon. Mix mashed banana, oatmeal and yoghurt in a blender. Apply the paste on face for 15-20 mins. Wash it with water.


This is an anti-acne face mask.  Banana treats acne as well as it is a skin moisturiser, anti-ageing agent and controls oil. Oatmeal is suitable for sensitive skin. It contains saponins, which is a cleansing agent, thus it provides clear skin. It can be used as a mild soap. Yoghurt moisturises the skin as well as removes tan from it.
