We understand everyone has different skin types. We also understand that the skin on your body is very different from that of your face. For today’s topic, we want to focus on the sensitive skin of the face and how to maintain it as clean and fresh as possible.
DIY face masks at home aren’t only cost-effective but they are dermatologist-recommended too. Instead of spending loads of money for a trip to the spa, why not create your own face mask in the comfort of your home?
Face masks using fresh ingredients you can easily find in your pantry is a great way to nourish your skin. There is power in going natural and in knowing exactly what you put on your skin. However, not everything you have in your kitchen is necessarily safe or effective so it’s vital to choose only the best ingredients. In this article, we talk about the best DIY face mask for every skin type to add to your beauty routine.
4 DIY face masks for every skin type
Avocado and honey for dry skin
Unleash the power of avocado and honey to whip up a DIY face mask for dry skin. Honey draws and seals the water to the skin surface while the avocado’s natural oils promote intense moisturization.
Simply get ¼ of a whole avocado and add 1 teaspoon each of honey and any natural oil you have. Common ones you can use are olive, argan, jojoba, and grapeseed oil. Then, mash the mixture until the desired consistency is achieved. Spread all over your face and wait for 15 to 20 minutes before rinsing with warm water.
Green tea, Epsom salt, and bentonite clay for oily or acne-prone skin
Bentonite clay is a well-known ingredient that seeps the oil out of your skin while green tea and Epsom salt contain loads of anti-inflammatory properties to soothe acne breakouts. Together, these powerhouse ingredients are the perfect combo for creating your DIY face mask for acne.
After steeping a cup of green tea for 5 minutes, add 2 tablespoons of it into a bowl. Next, dissolve ½ teaspoon of Epsom salts and 2 tablespoons of bentonite clay in the green tea. Keep stirring until a smooth paste forms. Spread evenly onto your skin and wait for 10-15 minutes then wash off thoroughly with warm water.
Oatmeal, yogurt, and honey for sensitive skin
Oatmeal is packed with saponins, a compound that gently removes excess oil from the skin while exfoliating it. It is also a natural moisturizer that decreases inflammation and irritation, making it beneficial for those with sensitive skin. Furthermore, honey and yogurt are powerful moisturizers to soothe sensitive skin.
Combine and stir together one teaspoon each of cooked oatmeal, honey, and plain full-fat yogurt. Apply and spread all over your face and leave on for 15 to 20 minutes then rinse off with warm water.
Matcha and aloe vera for irritated skin
To calm red and irritated skin, matcha green tea and aloe vera can definitely do wonders. Matcha contains caffeine which can constrict the blood vessels, essentially reducing redness. It’s also packed with anti-inflammatory properties just like aloe vera which can calm and soothe skin irritation.
To do this DIY face mask, just stir 1 teaspoon of matcha and 1 teaspoon of aloe vera together. Once the desired consistency is achieved, spread evenly throughout the face and leave on for 10 to 15 minutes. Then, gently rinse off with warm water.
Homemade DIY face masks shouldn’t be complicated. With just a handful of beneficial ingredients in your kitchen, you can easily come up with a face mask that will certainly nourish your skin. Whatever your skin type is, feel free to use this guide in your journey toward clearer and glowing skin.
