There are so many facial masks out there that you could easily use a different one every day of the year without any repeats. But there’s one problem with that plan–those masks are expensive! Here are 3 easy, inexpensive face mask recipes you can make at home for just pennies.
Does your skin need extra moisture? This avocado mask is a great choice. It turns out that avocados are just as good for you when you put them on your face! The only downside is that you’ll look like Shrek while it’s on your face.
Simply take one half of an avocado (make guac with the other half!) and combine it with a teaspoon of honey and a teaspoon of plain yogurt. Whip the mixture in a blender until it’s totally smooth and then apply the paste to your face.
Rinse with cool water after about 15 minutes for soft, hydrated skin.
Honey has been used in cosmetics and medicine since pretty much the dawn of time. It’s soothing and antibacterial–a combination that’s ideal for acne-prone skin. Many drugstore acne products are too harsh and leave your skin feeling worse than before. Not so with this miracle mask!
For this mask, you’ll need several ingredients: a cup of strong chamomile tea, a tablespoon of raw honey, and a teaspoon of nutritional yeast. Although it might seem like a weird thing to put on your face, nutritional yeast is an awesome source of B vitamins.
Combine the honey and yeast, then slowly pour in the tea until it’s a good consistency to spread on your skin. Don’t water it down too much! Apply the face mask and let it rest for about 20 minutes before rinsing.
If you have uneven or dull skin, then you need to try this face mask ASAP! You’ll be amazed at what a difference it makes. The lactic acid in yogurt acts as a very gentle peel, and the turmeric works wonders to even out your skin tone.
Simply combine a tablespoon each of plain yogurt, honey, and turmeric powder. The mixture will be bright yellow and smell a little funky, but don’t worry–the color and scent will wash off your skin. Just don’t wear your favorite white shirt while applying this mask.
Apply to your skin, let it sit for 15 minutes, and then rinse with cool water. Marvel at how gorgeous you look in selfies.
