I recently wrote about two of my favorite face masks, and I thought it would be great to share some DIY recipes for face masks you can make using things you already have in your kitchen. Each of these recipes is great for different reasons, and sometimes its fun to make a night of it, and do all three!

The Detox Face Mask

Ingredients

  • 2 Tbsp. Bentonite Clay
  • 1 Tbsp. Activate Charcoal Powder
  • 1 tsp. Tumeric Powder
  • Enough Apple Cider Vinegar to make a thick paste
  • Few drops of Tea Trea Oil (optional

1. Mix all ingredients together in a glass or plastic bow (avoid metal).

2. Use a foundation brush or your hands to spread a thick layer of this over your skin.

3. Leave on for 15-20 minutes, you’ll feel your face “throb”.

This mask is great for cleaning and tightening your pores, brightening your skin, and helping heal acne. If you suffer from acne prone skin, adding a couple of drops of tea tree oil can help, but just make sure to leave plenty of room away from your eyes.

If you want a great detox mask without DYI-ng it , this one is great.

The Skin Brightening Mask

Ingredients

  • 2 Tbsp. Raw Honey (or Manuka Honey)
  • 1 tsp. Cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. Nutmeg

1. Mix all ingredient

2. Apply generously on your face.

3. Rinse after 20-30 minutes.

This mask is great for  brightening your squint, getting rid of breakouts, and evening your skin-tone. Honey is an incredible ingredient- it has anti-bacterial properties, it moisturizes, and it helps fade scars. Cinnamon is a natural anti-septic, which means its great for helping heal acne + it plumps the skin, helping it look younger.  Nutmeg is the cherry on top, as it helps exfoliate and brighten your skin!

A good alternative, non-DIY brightening mask, is this one.

The Ultimate Moisturizing Face Mask

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup Organic Yogurt
  • 1/2  Mashed Banana
  • 1 Tbsp. Raw Honey
  • Oats

1.  Mix all ingredients together. ( Add enough oats until the mask is thick).

2. Warm the ingredients using either a microwave or a stove.

3. Apply all over face and neck.

4. Rinse after 30 minutes.

These ingredients seem like they would make a great breakfast, but they’re actually amazing for your skin. The yogurt acts as a great exfoliator, helps fight acne, and moisturizes and brightens the skin. Honey, as you know, is great for moisturizing and fighting acne. Bananas are a powerhouse, as they are deeply moisturizing,  anti-bacterial, anti-aging and so much more. The oats helps soothe and heal the skin.

If you don’t want to DIY, this moisturizing mask is a great alternative.
