DIY winter skin recipes

Today am going to share two DIY for dry skin. Winters have already started in India and stripping oil from our face and body. We often apply lotions and moisturizers to keep dryness at bay.
Sometimes I like to make DIY recipes for skin also. Here we go without much gyan...

Banana mask for skin
You will need a ripe mashed banana and sugar. Mix this together to form a thick paste. Massage gently onto your skin and let it dry a bit. Rinse with lukewarm water.
I usually use a banana which I have forgotten to eat and instead of throwing it away I apply to hair or to skin :D
Banana is a great moisturizer. The mask will make your skin soft and smooth.

Almond hand cream
For this you will need coconut oil, almond oil and beeswax. Take 1/4 part of bees wax, 1/2 part coconut oil and 1/2 part almond oil. You can use sweet almond oil also. Melt the beeswax in double boiler. After it melts add coconut and almond oil. Heat well till all the ingredients are mixed well. Pour in a container while it's cooled a little bit. After cooling fully it hardens. Don't pour hot mixture in glass container or plastic ones.
