Our Favorite Natural Face Masks
Face masks are something we put on when we need a self care moment, a little ReCHAARG, or if we’re working to soften our skin. Whether it be for the size of our pores, our skin getting dry + oily with the changing of seasons, there’s a face mask for that. There are even DIY all-natural masks to try with yogurt + oats, + honey that won’t break the bank ; ). These are some of our favorites because our skin always feels silky + smooth afterwards ++ we don’t have to leave our homes to buy anything beyond staples that we already have on hand.
Here are our favorites:
1] Hydration // For Dry Skin
This creamy mask is packed with nutrients to help hydrate dry skin. If we use yogurt, the lactic acid + probiotics within it packs a nice punch to aid our skin rejuvenation + fight acne. Oats are used in this to help soothe irritated skin and aid it in healing and moisturizing.
— ½ Avo OR ½ Cup Plain Greek Yogurt OR 4 Tbsp Milk
— 2 tbsp raw honey
— ¼ cup rolled oats [organic is best!]
#1] Mix in a small bowl until a consistent mixture.
#2] Using a clean foundation brush, apply evenly to cleansed skin.
#3] Leave on 10 minutes [read a good book!], rinse with warm water.
#4] Follow-up with your daily regimen.
NOTE: If you have a food processor, combine oats and avo // yogurt // milk + stir until the oats are slightly grainy. In a separate bowl, combine with the honey.
2] Soothe Irritation
This super simple, three ingredient face mask calms the skin with proteins within the egg while the honey + matcha calms the skin.
— 1 egg yolk [no whites!!]
— 2 tbsp raw honey
— 2 tsp matcha powder
#1] Combine ingredients in a bowl.
#2] Apply to the skin [use a foundation brush for less mess but be super careful when cleaning it] #3] Let sit 15 minutes + rinse off with warm water.
#4] Follow up with a nighttime skin regimen.
3] Aid Oily Skin
Do you have skin that is just always oily, no matter the number of blotting sheets? Try this super simple face mask a few times a week! The turmeric in this mask absorbs the oil from pores + washes it away when you take it off, while the lemon juice helps to brighten skin.
— 3 tbsp turmeric
— The juice from 2 lemons [or 40 drops of lemon juice]
#1] Combine the two in a small bowl until a paste is formed.
#2] Apply to cleansed skin [use a makeup brush for less messy applications but clean hands do just fine!] #3] Let sit for 20 minutes + rinse with warm water.
#4] Follow up with a nighttime regimen.
