There is no better way to nourish the skin that giving it a rich mask it deserves. The greatest benefit of homemade organic masks, especially if you get the ingredients from the organic supplier, is that you will be making a mask out of pure vitamins and minerals, free of any added or harsh chemicals you could find in commercial face maks. Here are four simple to make, but powerful face masks that will transform your skin naturally.
- Avocado and oatmeal mask for deep nourishing and acne

This simple, yet deeply nourishing mask is the ideal combination of oatmeal, which is a natural antioxidant, has anti-inflamatory properties anc can soothe dry, irritted, ichy skin, and avocado, which is a natural anti-oxidant, rich in vitamins A, C, and E. While oatmeal has the power to calm the inflamated skin and has a soothing effect on acne, avocado can help the production of collagen, and together, these two ingredients can deeply hydrate and nourish skin, making this an ideal mask for those who are battling with dry skin, acne and acne scars.

- Banana face mask for normal skin
½ of banana
1 tablespoon of honey
There is so much emphasis on dry skin and oily skin, but it is so little said about normal skin and what a nice mask can do to improve the complexion for this skin type. One of the best masks for normal skin is the banana and honey mask, as honey cleanses the skin gently, without removing natural oils from the skin surface. Banana is rich in potassium, vitamins E and C, which are essential for healthy, glowing skin. It is also rich in amino acids, meaning it will strengthen connective tissue, helping the skin stay elastic and strong.
