3 DIY Face Masks for All Skin Types
Jessie and I both love experimenting with new ways to treat our skin. Over the years, we’ve tried all sorts of “at home” face masks. As kids, this always made for awesome spa nights with our friends. Regardless, a few of these DIY face masks have carried over into our adult skin routines. Not only is it difficult to find facial products that don’t have harmful ingredients in them, but they often leave an ugly hole in my wallet. Thankfully, many foods I keep in my kitchen also have great benefits for my skin! For example, eggs can tighten pores, baking soda and almonds exfoliate, and honey and olive oil help with elasticity.
That said, we decided to put together our favorite DIY face masks you probably already have the ingredients for at your house! These three DIY face masks help with acne, wrinkles, and age spots. Try them out to see how your skin reacts to them. While everyone has different skin types, I think these three typically work well for most people. All of the ingredients used have benefits for your skin. Regardless, the measurements do not matter nearly as much as the ingredients. Have fun with them! Who doesn’t love an at home spa day, right?
Banana Face Mask for Acne
- 2 Spoonfuls of Mashed Banana
- 1 Tablespoon of Baking Soda
- A Few Squeezes of Lemon Juice
While the lemon juice helps get rid of oil, the baking soda scrubs your pores clean. The banana moisturizes to keep your skin from getting too dry. Mix these ingredients together, and cover your face generously with it. Leave on for 10-15 minutes before washing off.
Honey Face Mask for Wrinkles
- 2 Parts Olive Oil
- 2 Parts Baking Soda
- 1 Part Honey
You’ll have to work quickly with this one. After mixing, it tends to clump if you don’t get it on your face fast enough! Regardless, the olive oil moisturizes and helps with your skin’s elasticity, while the baking soda exfoliates. The honey protects your skin from sun damage, cleans, and tightens your pores. Leave this one on for about 10 minutes before washing off.
Avocado Face Mask for Age Spots
- Quarter of an Avocado
- Spoonful of Coconut Oil
- 1/2 Tsp. of Nutmeg
The healthy fats in avocados help prevent sun damage and also soothe sun burns. While the coconut oil moisturizes, the nutmeg is antibacterial and anti-inflammatory. Leave on for 15 minutes before washing off.
I hope your faces love these DIY face masks! If you want to keep the spa day going, check out our recipe for a coffee body scrub!
