You probably follow a skincare routine every morning when you wake and every night before bed. But if you’re not treating yourself to a face mask weekly, you’re not giving your skin the extra boost it needs to look its best. We all encounter environmental elements like dry weather and pollution, plus stress and diet also can leave our skin needing more nourishment.
Lucky for you, you don’t need to spend tons of money buying expensive face masks to look your most ravishing. These DIY face mask recipes can be made with things you’ve probably already got in your kitchen so head in there and get ready to DIY mask your way to perfection!
Avocado and Yogurt Mask
Summer sun, swimming, and other outdoorsy activities can really stress out your skin. Mash up half a ripe avocado and mix it with a teaspoon of plain organic yogurt and a teaspoon of raw organic honey. It will form a nice paste that you’ll smear all over your skin. Let it sit for about 15 minutes before rinsing away.
Egg White Mask
If you hate the sight of your pores, help minimize them with this mask. Mix one egg white with a teaspoon of orange juice and half a teaspoon of organic turmeric powder. The mega-dose of vitamin C and antioxidants in this mask will help even out skin tone as it sits on your skin. Again, 15 minutes is the magic number to amazing skin. One pro tip though: turmeric powder can stain so wear something you don’t care about while using this mask.
If your skin is often irritated, using this mask will help reduce redness and inflammation and keep skin clearer. You’ll mix 2 tablespoons of raw organic honey with a teaspoon of cinnamon and then squeeze in some lemon juice from about one wedge of fresh lemon. Massage this mixture into your skin as you apply it and let it sit for 20 minutes before rinsing.
Banana Oatmeal Mask
These ingredients sound like the makings of a tasty breakfast. But combined together on your skin, they will help soothe away irritation, even from sunburn. Use 2 tablespoons of raw oats mixed with half a ripe banana mashed and one teaspoon of raw organic honey. As with the others, leave it on for 15 minute and rinse away.
After using any of these masks, don’t forget to moisturize once you’ve rinsed your skin clean. You’ll want to seal in the hydration from masking to keep your face looking spa-day fresh! Which one will you try first?
