Regulate oily skin this summer
Aloe Vera and Honey Mask: Finding a way to keep your skin’s moisture levels balanced during the summer heat can be tough. Even oily skin needs proper hydration to prevent premature aging. Here’s how you can keep skin hydrated without clogging pores by making your own aloe vera and honey mask.
How to: Mix equal parts aloe vera and honey together and apply a thick layer on cleansed skin as a mask for an oil-free way to re-hydrate your skin.
Benefits: The aloe vera helps calm inflammation and reduces redness, while honey draws oil you don’t want away from pores and binds moisture you do want to the skin.
A similar store-bought treatment is the Dr. Lin Skincare Daily Hydrating Gel. This lightweight gel moisturizer provides extreme hydration for all skin types. It’s great to keep it stored in the refrigerator to provide additional cooling and rejuvenating benefits when applied as a night treatment.
