Homemade Facial Masks

1. Honey Mask

Honey is a natural antibacterial, which makes it a perfect base for acne-fighting masks.

  • Brew one cup of chamomile tea with two tea bags and let cool completely.
  • In a tiny bowl, stir together one tablespoon of manuka or raw honey, and one teaspoon of nutritional yeast.
  • Add just enough chamomile tea to the bowl to create a thicker paste that’s still runny enough to spread across your skin, but not too watery.
  • Apply a thin layer to your face and let sit for 20 minutes.
  • Rinse off and pat dry. Moisturize afterwards.
2. Banana Face Mask

This tropical face mask will give your skin such a health, natural-looking glow, and it’s also designed to be gentle enough on all skin types.

  • Mash one-half of a banana in a bowl.
  • Mix in a tablespoon of orange juice and a tablespoon of honey.
  • Apply the mask to your face (lumps are totally fine!) and keep the mixture on for 15 minutes.
  • Rinse with lukewarm water and then moisturize.
3. Strawberry Face Mask

Mash the strawberries with a hand blender or in a mixer along with the honey. Do not use strawberries in the tinned, canned, frozen or packed pulp forms that are available in the market.

  • Apply this pack on the face for about 20 minutes.
  • Rinse off with lukewarm water and follow it by a wash with cold water.
4. Oatmeal & Avocado

This soothing oatmeal and avocado face mask is the perfect remedy for people with sensitive skin. Oatmeal boasts anti-inflammatory properties to reduce redness while avocado hydrates and helps reduce inflamed dry itchy skin.

  • Cook oats as per packet instructions and allow to cool down.
  • Mash avocado and add to the cooked oats.
  • Mix well until it forms an even consistency.
  • Apply to your skin and leave it on for around 10-15 minutes or until it dries.
  • After, rinse it off with lukewarm water and dry your skin.
5. Potato Turmeric Mask
  • Blend ingredients together and rinse after 10 minutes.
  • Use a cloth to help make sure you get all the grated veggies off your face.

Like turmeric potatoes are anti-inflammatory. Potatoes have been applied to bruises and wounds for centuries, cucumbers have a great toning effect, are hydrating to the skin, and are rich in Vitamin C.
