If you’re stuck at home right now, there’s a high chance that you’ve been wearing the same pair of joggers for the past two weeks, and you don’t actually remember the last time you had a shower or washed your hair. Don’t worry, though, because we’re all in the same boat. Although you may not know when you’ll be able to head to your favourite bar again, or when you’ll be able to win your date over with your charm and good looks, that doesn’t mean that you can’t treat yourself – and your skin – to a little pampering. These are the coolest natural face masks you can make at home, and you’ve probably already got the ingredients in your cupboards!
The ultimate hydrator
There are many people in this world who have dry skin, and if you’re one of those people, you’ve probably searched every shelf to try and find a product that will hydrate your skin. Well, it turns out that you don’t have to spend your hard-earned money at all.
By mixing together ¼ of an avocado, one tablespoon of cocoa powder, and one tablespoon of honey, you can then apply this concoction on your face to create the ultimate hydrator mask. Not only that, but these ingredients are also anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial.
If you ever find that your skin looks a little too dull for your liking, it might be time to whip out the face mask and give it some time to shine. You can make your own eco-friendly face mask at home, and this is even better if you have some leftover fruit or kitchen ingredients that you don’t want to throw away. For this face mask, all you need is ½ cup of mashed papaya, one teaspoon of honey, and one whipped egg white. Although it may seem pretty weird to put egg whites on your skin, it really does leave it looking bright and glowy.
The full English
Hands up if you love a full English breakfast? We’re gonna assume that everyone has their hands up because it’s one of the most common breakfast options that this country has to offer. But what if we told you that you could use the ingredients you would use for this meal to give your face a little TLC?
This DIY face mask is made using one egg yolk, half a cup of oatmeal, one tablespoon of honey, and a tablespoon of olive oil. Once you mix this together and leave it on your face for 15 minutes, you’ll be left with skin as smooth as anything.
If your skin is looking a little tired and in need of some serious exfoliation, then what are you waiting for? You don’t have to head to the spa or the local chemist to buy some fancy product because you can make your own face mask in the comfort of your own home. This exfoliating mask will leave your skin looking dewy and refreshed, and that’s all thanks to the amazing combination that features the juice of one lemon, two tablespoons of sugar, and a tablespoon of olive oil. It’s also pretty tasty if you get a little peckish throughout the process.
The spot destroyer
Face masks are great if you find yourself dealing with blemishes and spots, and sometimes the simplest ingredients are the ones that are most effective. So, if you’re looking to destroy your spots, then all you need is three tablespoons of turmeric powder, water, and two tablespoons of lemon juice.
The mixture of the turmeric and the lemon will work hard to defend your skin and fight off any spots you may have, and you can either leave it on as a mask or use it directly onto one particular area to treat those pesky pimples.
Whether you’re bored in the house or whether you just want to give your face a little TLC with the extra time on your hands, then you just have to try these eco-friendly natural face masks you can make at home.
