How To Make GOOD DIY Face Mask At Home?
It is super simple to make the best DIY face mask at home. Just go to the kitchen and look what you got. Do you have egg, cinnamon, honey, avocado? If the answer is yes then you are all good!
I haven’t bought a face mask for a long time already. When you look at the labels on back of the products then you can see long lists of the things that you can’t even pronounce. I don’t want to put things, that I’m not familiar with, on my face. Also, most of the stuff is super expensive and if it doest’t suit you, it is just waste of money. With home made DIY masks it’s easy, if it is good for your skin then its great and if not you just don’t do it anymore. You can also try every time something new. You don’t have to stock up your bathroom cabinets with bunch of expensive products.
If you feel that you need to moisturise your skin then you should use things like banana, avocado or olive oil. When you have acne break outs you can use egg whites, soda, cocoa or oat. Or if you want to scrub your skin then add sugar, salt or coffee to your DIY mask. Finally for peeling use lemon, soda, aspirin or turmeric. Just relax and enjoy your homemade natural and pure face masks.
Here is my TOP 5
Avocado And Honey Mask
This face mask is ideal for dry and damaged skin. Avocado is full of good oils (omega-3) and vitamins A, D and E. It moisturizes and nourishes your skin gently. Honey is also extremely moisturizing and hydrates the skin. But also has great antibacterial effect.
How to do it? Take 1/2 avocado, smash it with fork, add 1 tablespoon of honey. Mix them and apply on washed and clean skin for 15-20 minutes. Then wash off with cold water to close the pores.
Avocado And Egg Mask
As we already talked about avocados nourishing effects, then now let’s see what good does egg whites do to your skin. In fact they absorb excess oil and have a good lifting/ firming effect.
Lemon is natural AHA so you don’t need to buy expensive AHA peelers. It does the same! Lemon has the peeling effect and it can also lighten your skin. But don’t do any peeling masks more than once per week and next day use high SPF sunscreen.
How to do it? 1/2 avodado (or even less), 1 tablespoon of honey, 1 teaspoon of lemon. Combine the ingredients together, apply to clean skin, leave it on for 15 minutes. Then wash off with cool water and apply moisturizer.
DIY Face Mask For Acne
This mask is also with peeling effect, again do not do it more than once per week. It is recommended to do the patch test before applying this mask.
Aspirin contains acetylsalicylic acid which is really similar to acids that they use in acne treatment products (salicylic acid). It has exfoliating and anti-inflammation effect.
How to do it? Take 2 aspirin tablets, add few drops of water and tablespoon on honey. Combine ingredients together and apply to your skin for 10 minutes. Wash off with cool water and moisturize your skin.
DIY Cocoa Mask For Facial Scrub
Cocoa has antioxidant properties and it reduces inflammation like aspirin. Raw cocoa powder is good for anti-aging, moisturizing and for protection against environmental pollutants. PS! This mask smells and tastes like heaven so try not to eat it all before you haveused it on your skin:D
How to do it? 1 tablespoon cocoa, 1 tablespoon honey, 1 teaspoon of brown sugar. Mix all ingredients together and apply on the skin for 15-20 minutes. Try not to lick it off your face! Just wash it off with cool water.
Oatmeal Face And Body Scrub/Mask
Oatmeal has good skin protecting, hydrating and anti-inflammatory benefits. It also soaks up the excess oil on your skin.
How to do it? 1/4 cup of oatmeal, 1 tablespoon of honey, 1 teaspoon of coconut oil. Mix all ingredients and apply to the skin. Wash off with cool water.
