5 DIY Face Masks for Your Skin Type

When you have a budget, you cannot always splurge on a new face mask, but have you ever considered making your own mask? With DIY face masks you can combine 2-3 simple and affordable ingredients and not have to sacrifice taking care of your skin. In this post, I will share 5 DIY face masks suitable for your skin type. I also collaborated with Katie over at Beauty and a Budget, so be sure to check out her post for the 5 DIY Face Masks she recommends!

Dry Skin

The first DIY mask is suitable for those with dry skin, and the recipe was included in the insert of my January 2019 GoodieBox. The ingredients help moisturize your skin and make your face glow.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 of a banana
  • 1 tablespoon of honey
  • 1 tablespoon of freshly squeezed orange juice

Directions

To make the mask, mash the banana in a bowl. Add the honey and orange juice and mix together. Wear the mask for 15 minutes and rinse with lukewarm water.

 

Oily Skin

The next face mask is a variation of one I found on Pinterest, and it is suitable for those with oily skin. The ingredients are anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory as well as exfoliating.

Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon of turmeric
  • 1 tablespoon of honey
  • 1 teaspoon of milk

Directions

Mix the turmeric and honey in a bowl and add the milk until a paste-like consistency is reached. Wear the mask for 10-15 minutes and rinse with warm water. The turmeric can temporarily stain the skin, but rinsing your face with a gentle cleanser or taking a shower can help remove the yellowish tone.

 

Combination Skin

For combination skin, I found a mask on beautymunsta that contains ingredients that are hydrating and oil-controlling.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 of an avocado
  • 1 tablespoon of coconut oil

Directions

Mash the avocado then stir in the coconut oil. Wear the mask for 10-15 minutes then rinse off with cool water.

 

Sensitive Skin

The next DIY mask I found on the blog A girl and her chick named Betty. The ingredients are gentle on sensitive skin, but they provide exfoliation and hydration.

Ingredients

  • 1/8 cup of oats
  • 2 tablespoons of basil
  • 1-3 tablespoons of hot water

Directions

Mix the oats and basil together and slowly add the water until a paste-like consistency is reached. Wear the mask for 15-20 minutes then rinse off with warm water.

 

Aging Skin

The last DIY face mask for this post that I found on Pinterest is for those with aging skin. The ingredients can tighten and cleanse the skin.

Ingredients

  • 1 egg white
  • 1 tablespoon of honey

Directions

Crack an egg and pour the egg white into a bowl. Add the honey and mix well. Wear the mask until it is dry and rinse with lukewarm water.

  1. I’ve not tried DIY since I was a teenager – in those days it was all about yoghurt and honey I think. Although I did get some of the clay stuff and mix up my own once upon a time too.
    The oat one looks good as a combination mask and scrub πŸ™‚
