Homemade Face Mask Recipes For Every Skin Concern

Homemade Face Mask Recipes For Every Skin Concern

This September, we’re exploring food-inspired beauty products. With that in mind, I’ve compiled a list of homemade face mask recipes that you can make using the food from your kitchen.

Whatever your skin concern, I’ve got the face mask for you! All you need to do is mix the ingredients together, apply the mask for 10 to 20 minutes, then thoroughly rinse it off. Ready? Here are your recipes…

Hydrate Dry Skin With An Avocado-Based Homemade Face Mask

What You’ll Need:

  • 1 avocado
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon of honey
  • 2 tablespoons of plain yogurt

Why It Works:

Avocado and olive oil are both rich in omega fatty acids that moisturise your skin and seal cracks between skin cells. Meanwhile, the honey and yogurt soothe your skin, leaving it feeling soft and plump.

Insider Tip: The honey can make this face mask a little sticky. To avoid getting it in your hairline, I’d recommending wearing a towel or spa headband.

Brighten Tired And Dull Skin With Lemon Juice

What You’ll Need:

  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 2 tablespoons of sugar
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil

Why It Works:

The sugar acts as an exfoliator and removes dead skin cells, while the olive oil hydrates your skin and the vitamin C in the lemon protects your complexion from free radical damage. Any dull skin will instantly appear fresher, dewier and healthier!

Treat Oily Skin With An Oat-Based Homemade Face Mask

What You’ll Need:

  • 1 banana, mashed
  • Half a teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon of oats

Why It Works:

Admittedly, this recipe sounds like a healthy version of banana pancakes, but it really does help to control oily skin. The vitamin A in the banana helps to produce fibroblasts (the cells that keep your skin firm and healthy). Meanwhile, the baking powder and oats absorb the excess oil in your skin and help to reduce any inflammation.

Soothe Blemish-Prone Skin With Coconut Oil

Fight The Signs Of Ageing With A Cucumber-Based Homemade Face Mask

  • 1 tablespoon of lemon juice

Cucumber and lemon are full of key anti-ageing ingredients. While the vitamin C in the lemon protects from free radical damage, the vitamin A in the cucumber is responsible for the healthy production of collagen. Wrinkles and fine lines? All reduced!
