Hi guys! This week i’m going to be sharing 4 DIY face masks!
Now if you’re like me, you see all of these expensive masks from Lush or other beauty stores. Of course they sound like they will work wonders for your skin, but you don’t know much of what’s in the mask. By making your own, you are guaranteed to know what is going on your skin.
Avocado Face Mask: moisturizing
½ of an avocado
½ of a very ripe banana
1 tbsp of any oil (I used olive oil)
- Leave on for 10-20 min
Coffee Mud Face Mask: exfoliates, tightens pores, accelerates scar healing, and reduces inflammation.
2 tsp cosmetic clay (White cosmetic clay – dry skin. Bentonite clay – normal to oily skin. French green clay – oily skin.)
1 tsp of ground coffee
1 – 1 ½ tsp of apple cider vinegar
2-3 drops of tea tree oil (optional)
- Leave on for 5-15 min
Turmeric Lemon Face Mask: heal acne, help skin retain moisture, cleans pores, and fights skin infections.
3 tbsp of rolled oats
1 tbsp of honey
½ tsp of turmeric
1 squeeze of lemon juice
- Leave on for 15-20 min (may have to rinse face multiple times to get rid of yellow tint)
Peeling Mask: removes blackheads, tightens pores, and clears up skin.
½ tbsp of apple cider vinegar
1 pack of unflavored gelatin (or non toxic elmers glue)
3-5 drops of eucalyptus essential oil
*put in microwave for 10-15 seconds if using unflavored gelatin*
- Leave on for 5-10 min then peel/rinse off
