These body and facial masks are ideal for all skin types and help to bring back some moisture into dry, damaged, or acne-prone skin.


Ingredients: baking soda and water

For skin which is prone to the occasional acne break-out, it’s important to keep it simple and stick to baking soda and water. Combine them in a small bowl and make a paste using your fingers.

Wait until the mask dries, then wash-off with lukewarm water and a moist towelette for all the exfoliating benefits.


Ingredients: unflavoured gelatin, milk

To make your own DIY blackhead strips, simply combine all of the ingredients and microwave for at least 10 seconds. Apply immediately onto the face with a wooden stick and wait until it hardens. Then simply remove once the mask has tightened on your face – easy!


Ingredients: avocado, oatmeal, apple cider vinegar, honey, lemon juice

Avocado masks are the perfect way to rejuvenate the face and neck area, especially if your wrinkles are a little too prominent. Add a splash of apple cider vinegar to act as an anti-bacterial and remove any dead skin cells from your face.


Ingredients: egg whites, lemon juice

Enlarged pores are the last things you want to see on your skin, and a mask with egg whites will help to tighten them up. Apply directly onto the skin and rinse with tepid water, then pat dry.

Oily skin

Ingredients: yoghurt, apricot, clay

Oily/acne prone skin can be particularly difficult to control, so it’s important to treat it to a weekly mask. Yoghurt is an essential ingredient for oily skin since it helps to regulate the sebum, and soothes any existing acne spots.
