3 Amazing DIY Face Masks

3 Do-it-yourself face mask ideas for glowing, hydrated, smooth skin

We’ve all been working so hard to mask-up everywhere we go that I thought we’d take a week to celebrate the coming of spring and give our skin a break with a different kind of face mask. Finding face masks that actually work can be difficult, but these face mask ideas use natural ingredients that will be gentle and non-irritating on skin. These masks are meant to hydrate tired skin, clear your complexion, and may even help with acne! They are easy to make with simple ingredients! It’s a spa in your own house!

Avocado Honey Face Mask

Avocados are a superfood for your skin and body. They have beneficial fats, protein, and vitamins that will help restore your skin’s suppleness by strengthening, protecting, and rejuvenating the tissue. Honey is an added hydrating bonus!

Ingredients:

1 ride avocado

2 tablespoons raw honey

1 teaspoon fresh squeezed lemon juice

Directions

  1. Peel and mash the avocado
  2. Mix avocado, honey, and lemon juice in a bowl
  3. Apply to face and let sit for 30 minutes
  4. Rinse off gently with warm water

For a bonus, you can always halve this recipe when all three ingredients have been combined and use half on your face and half as a hair mask!

Banana and Yogurt Face Mask

Is this a face mask or a breakfast parfait?! I’d totally recommend this face mask for breakfast if there wasn’t one key additional ingredient involved…apple cider vinegar! Banana is a hydrating agent for your skin, while the lactic acid in greek yogurt will brighten and smooth skin by way of exfoliation. The apple cider vinegar is a natural cleanser and additional toner that may even help fight acne!

Ingredients

1 unripe banana

6 tablespoons of plain greek yogurt

2 tablespoons raw, organic apple cider vinegar

Directions

  1. Peels and mash the banana
  2. Mix banana, yogurt, and apple cider vinegar
  3. Apply to face and let sit for 10 minutes
  4. Rinse off gently with warm water

Again, I made this recipe large enough for you to halve it and use half on your hair and half on your face. These ingredients make for a great clarifying and hydrating hair mask!

Charcoal and Aloe Face Mask

This last mask might require some ingredients that aren’t typically  already in your cupboard, but once you own these ingredients you can do so much with them! I’m including this mask because the ingredients it uses make up a powerhouse to help combat acne!  This mask came from Hello Glow, which says, “Charcoal absorbs excess oil, while aloe is soothing and anti-inflammatory, making it an ideal ingredient to add to any acne mask.” Tea tree essential oil is known for its antimicrobial and anti inflammatory properties.

  1. Mix ingredients together in a small bowl and use your finger to mix together before applying to the skin. 
  2. Apply the charcoal mask in circular motions around your face for 1 minute.
  3. Let the mask sit for 10–15 minutes. 
  4. Rinse thoroughly and gently with warm water.
