Homemade Face Mask for Dry Skin

Because you’ve got dry skin, a lot of the homemade face masks here will have ingredients that hydrate your skin. In short, they will prevent flakiness and give your skin a natural glow.

Chocolate antioxidants protect your skin from the damage caused by free-radicals.

To make this homemade face mask more effective, add in some powdered cocoa.

Plus, it’s a good source of vitamins A, B1, C, D and E which help to give your skin that natural glow.

Honey, on the other hand, is one of nature’s most revered skin remedies.

Honey is also a natural humectant, so it helps keep the skin moist but not oily. This is because humectants draw moisture from the skin without replacing it.
