8. Aloe Vera

You can buy aloe vera gel, or even aloe vera leaves at the store.

Directions: Apply aloe vera following a face wash, or purchase aloe vera leaves at the store. If you purchase the leaves, slice the leaves vertically and allow them to drain in a cup. Once the gel has drained, apply it (or your purchased gel) to the face. Allow to sit for 10-15 minutes, or wait until the gel entirely dissolves into the face. Pat dry if needed to remove excess gel.

 

9. Banana Mask

Bananas contain essential vitamins and minerals that moisturize and provide nutrition to the skin. Whip up an easy banana mask for instant relief of dry skin.

Directions: Peel one banana, and place in small bowl. Mash with fork, and apply to face. Spread evenly on the face, and let dry completely, about 10-15 minutes. Remove mask with a warm, wet cloth, and apply a light oil, such as almond oil, to the face.
