Has anyone tried a homemade facial mask that actually worked  in order to help dry skin from the winter weather?

I would recommend an egg and olive oil mask, all you need is one egg yolk and a tablespoon of olive oil.

The egg yolk contains water and fats that work to nourish and hydrate your skin whilst locking in moisture. The benefit of Olive oil is that it replenishes your skin without making it feel greasy. It also contains vitamin E, which lends greater elasticity to your skin.

The only problem with is that is can be quite runny, so I would recommend applying it with a brush. Alternatively, you could thicken up the mixture with a banana, this is recommended if you have extremely dry and/or flaky skin.

Ok thanks! If I don't want to use an egg yolk, can you recommend an alternative?

1 Tbsp Brown Sugar

1 Tbsp Honey

1 Tbsp  Coconut Oil 

You can also make this without the brown sugar if you don't want to exfoliate. 

Happy creating!

Ok great! I have most of my stuff in storage at the moment due to renovations. I ended up just putting honey on my face for 20 minutes. I did feel softer after but my face still feels very dry despite using a face moisturizer daily.

#2 I'd recommend a combination of plain yoghurt and honey!
