DIY Recipes For Apricot Facial Mask
So, here are some simple recipes with awesome results. Give them a try:
Apricot, Honey And Kernel Oil Mask
- Apricot – 1 small
- Honey – 2 teaspoons
- Kernel oil – (1/2) teaspoon
Clean and wash the apricot, remove its skin, and cut it into halves. Discard the seed of the fruit and mash it into smooth pulp by using your hand. You can also make small dices of the apricot and crush them in a blender. Now, add honey and kernel oil to the apricot pulp and combine well to form a rich paste of thick consistency. Cleanse and dampen your face with plain water and apply the mask all over it. Let it sit for 10 to 15 minutes. Once it starts drying, rinse gently with lukewarm water. Use this mask at least once every week for maximum results. Try to use honey in its thicker form for a richer paste. If kernel oil is not available, you can skip it.
Apricot, Honey And Brown Sugar
- Apricot – 1 small
- Honey – 1 tablespoon
- Brown sugar – 1 teaspoon
Peel the skin off the cleaned and washed apricot. Cut it into two parts and take the seed away. Mash the soft pulp with your fingers or in a blender to make a smooth puree that is free of lumps. Pour honey into it. Also, add brown sugar. Now, mix all the ingredients nicely until (3/4)th of the sugar melts. Apply the thick, sticky paste to your damp face evenly and massage into the skin for a few minutes. Leave it on for 15 minutes and then, wash off with tepid water. Use it twice every week for visible outcomes. You can use this mixture as a facial scrub to get rid of dirt, oil, and dead skin cells.
Apricot, Honey And Almond Mask
- Apricot – 2 small
- Honey – 2 tablespoons
- Almond – a handful
Start with cleaning and washing both the apricots and the almonds. Also, peel the skin off them. Now, cut open the apricots and discard the pits. Put the fruit pieces in a blender. Add honey and almonds in it and grind well. If the blend seems too heavy, add a little water and mix well to make the consistency slightly thinner. Spread the mask all over your facial skin and wait for next 20 minutes. Then, rinse with lukewarm water. Applying this mask twice every month can give you desired results.
Apricot, Honey And Orange Juice Mask
- Apricot – 1 large
- Honey – 3 teaspoons
- Orange Juice – 1 teaspoon
De-skin and deseed the apricot after washing it properly. Crush the fruit by using your hand and mix honey and orange juice with the pulp. Combine everything well and spread all over your face. The consistency of the mask should be on the thinner side. Allow it to dry completely. It might take 40 to 45 minutes. Then, rinse away with lukewarm water. Try to use freshly extracted orange juice instead of the canned one to prepare this recipe.
Apricot, Honey, Yogurt And Mint Mask
- Apricot – 2 to 3 small
- Honey – 1 teaspoon
- Yogurt – 2 tablespoons
- Mint – 4 to 5 fresh leaves (mint powder will also do)
Prepare the apricots for the mask by cleaning, peeling and seeding them one by one. Cut them into pieces and put inside a blender. Crush the mint leaves with your hands and add to the blender. Also, add honey and yogurt to it and blend everything together. Apply the creamy mask to your skin uniformly and wait until it becomes dry. After 30 minutes, wipe the mask off your face with a wet washcloth and splash cold water. However, the use of fresh mint leaves is totally optional.
