3. Overnight Oats And Honey Face Mask
Oats contain compounds called saponins, which act as natural cleansers. Oats can soak up the excess oil on your skin and helps reduce acne. Its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties help treat dry skin and remove dead skin cells. Honey is a fantastic moisturiser and works wonders on patches of dry skin. If you have dry knees and elbows, or even chapped lips, apply honey on it.

Method: Start with mixing oats and honey in a bowl. Leave the mixture to rest for five minutes, until the oats soften. Now, mash the oats and mix well. Apply evenly on your face. Keep it for overnight. It will moisturise and repair your skin from damage done by the harmful rays of the Sun.
4. Overnight Tomato Face Mask

Ingredients: Medium-sized tomato and 2 tablespoon raw milk.
Method: Take a medium-sized tomato, cut it into two halves. Take about 2 tablespoon of raw milk in a bowl. Now, dip the tomato into the milk bowl and apply it all over your face. Once the layer is dried up, repeat it again and apply the second layer. Better still, blend the tomato along with raw milk and apply the paste to your face. Leave it on overnight and rinse off with cold water in the morning.
Some of the masks can be a little messy like the oat and honey mask, whereas, some may have an overpowering smell like egg white mask. In such case, you may rinse the mask off before you sleep - the choice is yours; they will still do wonders to your skin. Contact your dermatologist before you use these face masks to check for any allergies.
