Does your skin have a tendency to get red easily? There are many ways to get rid of face redness. One good redness remedy is an all-natural face mask. You can even buy an anti-redness cream. Here are five easy-to-make face masks that will remove redness from your skin.
1. Cucumber Mask
Cucumbers are great at getting rid of your redness and cooling down flushed skin. To make a mask from this vegetable, either grate a cucumber or put it through a food processor until it becomes a paste. Then, spread it on all your redness problem areas, and leave it on for around twenty minutes.
2. Oatmeal, Honey, and Yogurt Mask
This mask is perfect for redness caused by contact dermatitis. Oatmeal will relieve your itching, and the honey and yogurt will bring moisture back to your skin. To make this mask, combine a tablespoon of unflavored yogurt, a tablespoon of honey, and a cup of oatmeal. Spread this mixture all over your face, and leave it on for about fifteen minutes before gently washing it off with warm water.
3. Lemon, Yogurt, and Green Tea Mask
Lemon can reduce acne, and its citric acid helps clear dirt and oil from your pores. Green tea is also good for getting rid of acne and redness-it reduces inflammation, and it is rich in antioxidants. To make this soothing mask, start by steeping a bag of green tea in boiling water. After the tea has been steeped for a few minutes, remove the bag. Add a tablespoon of plain yogurt and a teaspoon of lemon juice to the tea. Stir it together, and allow the mixture to cool. Then, gently spread it on your face, and leave it on for ten minutes before washing it off.
4. Yogurt, Orange, and Aloe Mask
If your skin is looking dull and dry, this is the mask for you. In a bowl, combine a teaspoon of plain yogurt and a teaspoon of aloe vera. Then, slice an orange into quarters, and squeeze one of the quarters into your bowl. Stir the ingredients together, and then apply the mask to your face, leaving it on for about fifteen minutes.
5. Turmeric, Milk, and Honey Mask
This is another good mask for anyone who suffers from acne. Turmeric has antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial properties. It also removes excess oil from your skin. Mix together a teaspoon of honey, a teaspoon of turmeric, and two teaspoons of milk. Use a cotton pad to apply the mask to your face. After ten minutes, wash the mask off. The turmeric may leave a yellowish stain on your skin. If that happens, just apply milk to your skin. This will get rid of the stain in no time.
