Homemade Face Masks With Household Ingredients

Facials and face masks are a fantastic way to help your skin stay glowing and smooth year-round. If you do not have access to a spa and don’t want to spend money on expensive face masks, you are in luck. Effective face masks can be created with ingredients you probably have in your home right now!

Exfoliating Mask

2 Tablespoons Brown Sugar

2 Tablespoons Coconut Oil

Exfoliating skin is an important part of any skincare routine. “It unclogs pores, evens skin tone, stimulates collagen, and more,? shares Dr. Jennifer Vickers, a board-certified dermatologist at Sanova Dermatology in Austin, Texas. Brown sugar is the perfect exfoliant for sensitive skin. Its particles are strong enough to exfoliate, while gentler than other sugars and salts. Coconut oil complements the brown sugar with its moisturizing properties. The combination will leave your skin glowing and soft as a baby’s bottom.

Moisturizing Mask for Oily Skin

1 Avocado

1 Egg Yolk

1 Banana

If you have oily skin, choosing a moisturizer is tricky. This recipe is completely oily skin approved! It actually reduces natural oil in the skin while providing the moisture you need. “Avocados are rich with healthy fats, and the Vitamin E fights wrinkles, making this the go-to choice for an anti-aging mask,” says Dr.Vickers. The protein in the egg also helps firm skin, while the other attributes provide the skin with a deep cleanse. Banana’s silica also helps collagen production, while the antioxidants reduce damage.

Skin Brightening Face Mask

1/2 Avocado

1 Tablespoon Organic Honey

1 Tablespoon Plain Yogurt

Honey is a natural humectant. A humectant is a substance that draws moisture in and keeps it there. In a face mask, this will keep your skin soft and moisturized all day long. Honey also has antibacterial properties, making a great addition if you are fighting acne. Yogurt also has a bounty of benefits for your skin. “It is a gentle exfoliant, fights acne, and even relieves sunburn,” shares Dr. Vickers.

Taking care of your skin is always important. It doesn’t have to cost a fortune. Look around in your kitchen, and see what ingredients you have. This is also a fun way to have an at-home spa night, especially when staying inside is the best option.
