Quickie DIY Face Masks

Quickie DIY Face Masks

As someone who has very pale and sensitive skin, I would never go crazy with a DIY face mask. I stick with tried-and-true, natural ingredients like coconut oil (a great skin softener…side note: you can also use it to remove eye makeup!), egg (this helps fight sagging skin), honey (it has antibacterial properties, making it a good acne fighter), lemon juice (a natural astringent), and avocado (this boosts moisture). Come fall, pumpkin is also worth adding into the mix since it’s full of antioxidants and vitamins that help prevent wrinkles. Not only are these masks quick to whip up – and odds are they won’t even entail a trip to the supermarket – but they’re cheap and free of synthetic ingredients and chemicals. A simple face mask is likely to be less irritating than most commercial products. Here’s a look at some easy recipes to try now!

For Hydration
1/2 of an avocado
1/2 of a ripe banana
1 1/2 teaspoons of olive oil

Blend and apply for 15 minutes before washing off.

For Wrinkle Prevention
1/4 cup of pumpkin
One egg
1 teaspoon of honey

Whisk together and apply for 15 minutes before washing off.

For Skin Brightening
1 tablespoon of coconut oil
2 tablespoon of honey
1 teaspoon of lemon juice

Mix and apply for 15 minutes before washing off.
