Reduce Wrinkles with Face Mask Recipes for Dry Skin

Homemade skin treatments made with natural ingredients are a great way to freshen up your skin. Making these mixtures yourself allows you to see exactly what is going into your skin treatment and ensures a gentle, organic mixture that will not cause irritation. Using these treatments will help keep skin lubricated and healthy, and reduce wrinkles.

For dry and irritated skin, try using one of the following recipes.

Flax Seed Mask

Materials and Ingredients
1 glass of water
1 teaspoon flax seed
Pot and Stove

Pour water over the flax seeds and cook in a pot over low heat until mixture is a thick pulp. Cool until it reaches room temperature. Set damp gauze on face. Apply the cooled pulp evenly on the gauze. After about 20 minutes, remove the gauze and the pulp. Wash the skin with cleanser or toner to finish.

This mask softens the epidermis, soothes irritations and makes the skin more elastic. Flax seeds are loaded with Omega-3, which is a natural acid that helps lubricate your skin.

Egg Yolk, Honey and Olive Oil Mask

1 egg yolk
1 tbsp. honey
1 tsp. olive oil
Mix together the egg yolk and honey. Once the two are blended, add the olive oil and mix well. Blend until mixture reaches a smooth consistency. Apply the mask to your skin.  After 45 minutes, rinse off the mask with lukewarm water and pat dry.

Egg yolks are full of vitamins A, D and E each of which are antioxidants and moisturizing agents. These vitamins are common in skin care products, but exist together naturally in eggs. Honey and olive oil are full of essential oils that moisturize, leaving your skin hydrated and smooth.

Avocado and Honey Mask

This mask is particularly hydrating and is recommended for more mature or wrinkled skin.
½ ripe, soft avocado
¼ cup honey
In a bowl, mash up the avocado. Then stir in the honey. Stir until mixture is smooth. Apply to face and leave for 10 minutes. Rinse face with cool water and pat dry.

Avocado and honey are full of essential oils and together they create particularly rich cream. This mask will replenish and lock in moisture, giving you a smooth, lustrous complexion.
