Treat your skin to a homemade and all natural face mask with ingredients straight from the garden and pantry.
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.
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.
