Having a facial mask at home is quite expensive. Also, it’s quite hard to find different brands and types of masks that you know won’t harm your face. It happened to me once, I tried a facial mask and then after a few minutes, my face got so irritated! Then by morning, I got pimples and my skin was all red… A disaster! Now, I’m thinking twice before buying masks…

1. Strawberry Facial Mask

  • 8 Fresh strawberries
  • 3 Tablespoons of honey

In a bowl, mash the strawberries with a fork until smooth.  Add in the honey and mix the ingredients together. Using clean hands or a sanitised brush, gently apply the mixture all over your face, avoiding the eye area. Lie down and leave the mask on for 10 to 15 minutes. Wash it away with warm water, pat your face dry and follow up with your favourite toner and moisturiser

2. Kiwi Facial Masks

  • 4 Kiwi Finely Chopped

Mixed the chopped kiwi with the tablespoon of yoghurt. Apply the paste evenly on your face. Leave it on for 15-20 minutes and then wash off with warm water for a glowing skin.

3. Coffee Powder

  • 1 teaspoon Coffee Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Honey

Mix the above two ingredients and apply on washed face and neck in circular motion. Let it gets completely dry for at least 15 minutes. Wash your face with cold water and wipe with a wet tissue to remove the stain of coffee, if any.

4. Aloe Vera Facial Masks

 

  • 2 tsp Aloe Vera Gel
  • 1 tsp Egg White

Cut off a leaf from the plant and scrape out the gel, mix it with egg white to make a smooth paste. Apply this mask generously on your clean face and let it dry for 15 minutes. Wash your face with cold water.

5. Coconut Oil Facial Mask

  • 1 tbsp Coconut Oil
  • ¼ tbsp Turmeric

Mix these two ingredients in mentioned proportion and apply on your face. Wash your face after 15 – 20 min with cold water and pat dry.

    I’ve tried coffee ground masks before but it was too potent that it irritated my skin. Others even use it as a scrub but it’s too much for me.

  • Shelia West says:

    I tried growing aloe veras before but there was a rat in our house and it kept eating my plant. I was so annoyed because aloe vera is such a magical gel. It was able to treat the dry patches in my face.

  • Tara Lambert says:

    These are actually very effective. I sometimes add a drop of my favorite serum and it works great.

  • Leslie Smith says:

    I would rather eat kiwi than put it on my face. They’re my favorite how could I mash it up and slather it on my face.?

  • Cheryl Reeves says:

    Isn’t coconut oil comedogenic? I’m so scared to put it on my face because I’m acne prone and I might break out from it.

    • Eula Snyder says:

      Radiant Peach has an article about this and as far as I know, there are different types of coconut oil and not all of it will break you out.

  • Strawberries are kind of expensive and isn’t always on season. Should it be ripe or something? I’m scared that it might not work because it’s such an expensive fruit.

  • Honey is really moisturizing. I love applying it on my lips along with a scrub and it’s really nice.?

  • Alison Becker says:

    Aloe vera! I’ve never tried it directly from an aloe plant but I love products that have aloe in them.

    • It’s better to use something that’s not processed in any way. You can buy these plants in groceries most of the time.

  • Iris Zeilstra says:

    I like DIY masks like this. It’s so easy to do and it’s safer too. No preservatives whatsoever.
