Top DIY Face Masks for Natural Skincare

All of us deal with some kind of skin related trouble be it overly dry skin, oily texture, sensitive skin, and so on. Rest assured, you don’t need to invest in expensive skincare products as natural face masks can take care of those issues.

 

Here are some DIY masks made of natural ingredients – take a look:

 bowl of raw oatmeal

Face Mask for Eczema

  • 1 tablespoon oatmeal
  • 1 teaspoon raw honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon water

The main ingredient is oatmeal, which acts as an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory agent that soothe sensitive skin, and remove dead skin cells. When combined with antibacterial honey and water, it can have a wonderful healing effect. Crush up all the ingredients in a bowl, smooth a thin layer over clean skin, and leave it on for about 10 minutes before washing off.

bowl of plain greek yogurt

Face Mask for Dull & Lifeless Skin

  • 1 tablespoon Greek yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon oatmeal
  • 1 teaspoon honey

Your skin might feel dull and dry, but don’t let it dampen your mood. This face mask has a lovely cooling effect, and it leaves the skin nice and dewy. Greek yoghurt contains lactic acid that softens the skin, along with probiotics, which soothes inflammation. Mix it in a bowl with oatmeal and honey, leave it on clean skin for 10 to 15 minutes, and rinse it off with warm water.

aloe vera and cream

Face Mask for Acne

  • 1 tablespoon aloe vera gel
  • A drop of tea tree oil

You will come across many natural face masks for acne, but this one is the least time-consuming, so those with super busy schedules can also try it out. Tea tree oil is a natural antibacterial agent and combats acne, but it is too harsh to apply over the skin on its own (it can cause burns if not diluted with enough water). But this mask uses hydrating, calming aloe to negate the potentially irritating effects while calming irritated, broken-out skin. Apply on clean and dry skin, leave on for 10 minutes, wash off, and moisturize later on.

Face Mask for Blackheads

  • 2 teaspoons unflavored gelatin
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 6 activated charcoal capsules (broken open)

Mix ingredients in a bowl, and dab a thick layer over your nose. Charcoal acts like a natural magnet and draws out the excess oil from pores. Thus it can heal blackhead-prone, oily areas. Use this mask only on the nose as it dries down into a peel-off mask.

cut avocado

Face Mask for Dry Skin

  • Half an avocado, mashed
  • 1 tablespoon of honey.

Avocados are rich in fatty acids, which help to soothe and moisturize the barrier of your skin, while honey hydrates naturally and is an astringent as well (it can be used to treat acne and inflammatory skin conditions without overly dry the skin). Mix the two ingredients, slather over the face, and wash off after 10 minutes.

small carton of white eggs

Face Mask for Oily Skin

  • 1 egg white
  • 2 tablespoons fresh aloe

The problem with face masks for oily skin is they are often made of harsh ingredients that strip the skin of its natural oils and cause underlying damage. But this particular face mask ensures the oils of your skin aren’t depleted. Egg whites actually contain a natural antibacterial than can help prevent clogged pores while absorbing excess oil. Aloe works wonders when it comes to soothing and hydrating. If your skin is overproducing oil as a result of irritation, this face mask helps to calm it down. Mix the ingredients, spoon them onto your face, wait for 10 minutes, and then rinse them off.

small amount of turmeric powder

Face Mask for Spots & Scars

  • 1 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 2 tablespoons plain yogurt (or olive oil, or your favorite face oil)

Turmeric is a potent antioxidant and it heals inflammation too. Moreover, it gently evens out discoloration, while killing harmful microorganisms on your skin. Add a bit of yogurt or oil to create a barrier and prevent your skin from taking on a yellowish tone after washing off. The face mask should be on your skin for 10 to 15 minutes. Wash off and finish up with your usual face wash.

In Conclusion

These natural face masks can address a variety of skin related concerns, so depending upon the problem, you can take a look at this list and create your very own homemade mask.
