5 Hydrating Face Packs For Winter

Winters are quite pleasant in India and especially for the people who live in the plains, winter comes as a boon to relieve them from the scorching heat and irksome humidity. However, the winter months tend to be dry and your skin is affected too. Your skin becomes dry and feels stretchy. Nevertheless, with a proper skin care regimen, the winter dryness can be efficiently combated. For this purpose, you not only need a good quality moisturizer but you also need hydrating face packs to retain moisture level in your skin. Looking for some effective hydrating face mask for winter months? Here is an article with top five ideas for hydrating face packs in winter months with the most easily available ingredients.

Top 5 Hydrating Face Masks For Winters:

1.  Milk Cream – Honey Face Mask:  

Honey

Mix a spoon of milk cream (malai) with a spoon of honey. Spread the mixture thoroughly on your face and wait for about 15 minutes. Wash it off with tepid water and finally with cold water. Both milk cream and honey helps to nourish your skin and moisturize it thoroughly. This mask works great for dry-skinned beauties. You may like it too if you have normal skin.

2. Cocoa Butter – Olive Face Mask:

Olives

Mix a spoon of cocoa butter with a spoon of olive oil. Add a pinch of ginger paste. Apply on your face and wait for 15 minutes. Rinse off with normal water. Cocoa butter is natural and free from any preservatives. However, if your skin is prone to acne and clogging of pores, cocoa butter face pack may not be ideal for you.

3. Almond Oil – Milk Face Mask:

Almonds

Mix a spoon of almond oil with two spoons of raw milk. Apply on your face and let it stay on for 10 minutes. Wash it off with tepid water and finally with cold water. This pack is wonderful if your skin feels dry and parched; it helps your skin benefit from the goodness of milk and the hydrating properties of almond oil. Almond oil penetrates your skin with ease and helps retain moisture content in your skin. That is why, almond oil is a perfect choice during the winter months.

4. Rosewater – Strawberry Face Mask:

Strawberry

Take two spoons of blended strawberry and a spoon of rose water. Mix them together and apply on your face. Let it sit on your face for 20 minutes and then rinse off. This mask can be used by oily-skinned beauties without a problem. Strawberry is rich in Vitamin C as well as omega-3 fatty acids. It is an organic fruit that helps in doing away with free radicals and at the same time, ensures a significant improvement in skin conditions.

5.  Banana – Milk Powder/Rose Water Face Mask:

Bananas

Banana is known for its moisturizing properties. Mix a spoon of mashed banana with milk powder. Use rose water instead of milk if you have oily skin. Add a few drops of honey too. Apply the mask, wait for 20 minutes and then rinse off. Your skin feels hydrated, soft and smooth.

These face packs should be used at least two times every week. Make sure that you choose a mask that suits your skin type, so that you may nourish your skin the way it wants. Do away with any ingredients that makes you allergic or aggravates any skin problem you are prone to, like acne or pimples. Make sure that you wash your face well (preferably with besan and milk) before using the face packs. Do not forget to apply a light facial moisturizer after rinsing off the face pack.
