10 Hydrating DIY Recipes For Skin
Dry, dehydrated skin is one of the worst problems faced by me. The chilly winters and these March days, when the sun shines hot and wind blows cold, when its summer in the light and winter in the shades, this time of the year make the problem even worse.
I used to spend so much on products from the markets in the hope to soothe and treat dry and dehydrated skin, but nothing seemed to work perfectly. Then I started to use homemade DIY hydrating masks and packs which didn’t cost a bomb and helped a lot to hydrate my desert like skin.
Here are some useful tips which you can follow.
Remember that if your skin feels dry, it doesn’t necessarily mean it is dehydrated, it might mean you’re lacking oil; but dehydrated skin may be the cause of dry skin, where your skin needs water rich products.
Egg yolk and honey
Egg yolks are jam-packed with nutrition and honey is among the oldest natural beauty products used to treat health, skin and body. Beat an egg yolk with a spoon of honey, apply on face and wash off after 15-20 minutes.

Blend a few pieces of watermelon to a smooth puree/juice. Add a teaspoon of milk to it. Apply it all over face and neck. If you feel the pack is too runny, you can dip a cotton ball in it and dab on face and also can place them on tired eyes. You’ll feel amazing.
