DIY Face Mask Recipes

By: Emily Oberg

 

There are several things that absolutely suck about being quarantined, but if you use this time wisely and productively, you can make the situation a bit better for yourself. Instead of wasting this time doing things that aren’t benefiting your life in any way, use it as an intensive self-care period and pretend you’re on a month long spa retreat. While we’re all bored at home, making DIY face masks is a great way to pass the time and perfect your skin!


I find a lot of store bought face masks contain too many unnecessary and sometimes damaging chemicals and ingredients. I feel safer using a mask that I’ve made myself with only a few ingredients from the kitchen. Here are some easy face mask recipes that are approved for almost any skin type.


Avo Honey Hydrating Mask:

Honey + Avocado:

2 whole avocados

¼ cup of Manuka honey


Mix the avocado and honey until there are no lumps. Apply to face and leave on for 15-20 minutes.


Oatmeal Rose Calming Mask:

2 tbsp of dry oats

1 tsp of milk (you can use any kind)

1 tsp of rose water

1 tsp of plain yogurt


Add the oats and milk to a blender and blend until smooth. Mix in the rosewater and yogurt with a spoon until it forms a thick paste. Apply to face and leave on for 20-30 minutes.


Antibacterial Turmeric Mask:

 2 tbsp of Manuka honey

1 tsp of lemon juice (freshly squeezed is preferred)

1 tsp of turmeric powder


Combine all ingredients in a bowl, mix and apply. Leave on for 10 minutes and rinse with a cleanser and warm water (the turmeric will temporarily stain your skin so you’ll want to wash it off well).


Tightening Raw Mask:

1 egg white (use organic, free range eggs)

1 tbsp Manuka honey

A squeeze of lemon


Mix all ingredients in a bowl and leave on for 10 minutes. Make sure you don’t have an egg allergy or this will cause a rash or irritation. 


Brightening Papaya Mask:

½ papaya

1 tbsp Manuka honey


Mask the papaya in a bowl until there are no lumps. Mix in the honey and leave on for 20 minutes.


Anti-Oil Charcoal Mask:

1 tbsp on activated charcoal (or 6-7 capsules)

2 tbsp of water

1 tsp apple cider vinegar

3 drops of essential lavender oil


Mix all ingredients in a bowl until a thick paste forms. Apply to face for 10-15 minutes and rinse.
