Glow From Home: 5 DIY Natural Face Masks You Can Make Right Now

Making face masks at home is one of my favorite things to do on a casual night in with my friends or my sister, Jade, when she’s in town.

Besides being fun to DIY, a simple face mask can, when used over time, make some major improvements to your skin and should be a regular part of everyone’s skincare routine.

And it doesn’t have to be difficult. What I like most about these recipes is that they aren’t hard to make and don’t need more than a few ingredients which are easy to find.

Get ready to glow, these are 5 easy face masks that you can DIY right now:

Disclaimer: Always do a spot test before applying a new product to your face or body, even if that product is natural or organic.

1 For Dry Skin: Yogurt And Banana

No, this isn’t a smoothie recipe, it just sounds and tastes like one.

When combined, bananas and yogurt create a probiotic miracle in face mask form. Calcium is also associated with renewing the epidermis, AKA the outer layer of skin. Anyone can make this DIY face mask because there are only two inexpensive ingredients that are probably already in your pantry.

Here’s how to DIY it:

Combine about half a cup of yogurt with two mashed bananas using a spatula or a blender. Apply an even layer on your face, let it sit for 20 minutes, and wash off it with warm water. Repeat 2-4 times per week.

2 For Oily Skin: Honey, Aloe Vera And Lemon

This DIY face mask will make you glow and fight acne for a double win.

Honey is another hero skincare ingredient I return to time and time again. Anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory, moisturizing and exfoliating, honey checks all the boxes. If you’ve ever used aloe vera for sunburns, you know how soothing it can be, while lemon has antioxidants and brightening properties.

Here’s how to DIY it:

Combine two tablespoons of the freshest honey you can get with one tablespoon of aloe vera and one teaspoon of lemon juice. Apply generously to your face, and leave the mask on for 20 minutes. Rinse gently with warm water. Do this 1-2 times per week (any more can dry out your skin).

3 For Dark Spots: Tumeric & Honey

Tumeric has been used as a popular skincare ingredient for like, ever. For over 4,000 years, the people of India have used this herb for everything from good skin to good food.

While Tumeric is loaded with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties, but it’s probably most famous in the skincare world for lightening dark spots.

So, what all can this miracle ingredient do for your skin? These are just a few of the herb’s superpowers:

  • Brightens dark spots. Tumeric can help lighten dark spots from aging, acne, the sun, and dark under-eye circles.
  • Helps fight blemishes. Face or body washes that contain this herb can help fight the bacteria that causes acne.
  • Helps fade scars. Acne scars are no match for Turmeric masks and treatments over time.
  • Gets your glow going. I never glow quite as bright as after a refreshing Turmeric mask!
  • Anti-aging benefits. The magic ingredient of Turmeric is curcumin, which can increase collagen production, crucial for your skin as you age.

Are you obsessed with turmeric yet? Same.

Here’s how to DIY it:
Mix 2 tablespoons of Turmeric with about a tablespoon of honey; you need just enough to cover your entire face. Let it sit for 20 minutes, and then rinse lovingly with warm water. Repeat 1-2 times per week as needed.

Tumeric Tip: As much as I love turmeric for skincare (and food!) it can turn your face yellow if you leave the mask on too long.

4 For Anti-Aging: Egg White, Avacado and Oatmeal

Anyone with anti-aging concerns will adore this easy DIY face mask that only needs 3 ingredients! Avocado is a pro at moisturizing, egg is a fantastic pore shrinker and skin tone evener, and oatmeal is a powerful antioxidant.

Here’s how to DIY it:

Combine half a mashed avocado, one egg white, and 2 tablespoons of oatmeal into a thick, grainy paste. If the paste gets too dense, add a tiny bit of water. Apply the mask all over your face, let it sit for 20 minutes, and then rinse with warm water. Repeat 2-4 times per week as needed.

5 For Exfoliating: Brown Sugar and Olive Oil

Literally everyone I’ve ever exposed to this DIY face mask recipe adores it because it just feels so rejuvenating! And I get it. This mask always makes me feel pampered, even though it’s ridiculously simple to make.

Benefits-wise, brown sugar is an excellent physical exfoliant that gets bonus points for smelling good. Since it dissolves when it’s used, it’s not as harsh on the skin as other types of manual exfoliants. The olive oil helps the brown sugar stick to your skin and has anti-inflammatory powers on its own.

Here’s how to DIY it:

Thoroughly combine 2 tablespoons of brown sugar and 2 tablespoons of olive oil. For an extra dose of treat yo’ self, throw in a teaspoon of honey. Let your mask sit for 15-20 minutes before rinsing with warm water, and repeat no more than 1-2 times weekly.
