Good evening, all! How has your week been? For me, as we are currently moving home it has been pretty mad!
And now my skin needs a bit of Friday night pampering, does yours need this also?!
I think one of the most fun parts of skincare routines is making a DIY treat!
Even better, most of you probably have these items sitting around in your fridge or on a shelve somewhere!
Ready to learn some amazing homemade face mask recipes for glowing skin?
Keep on reading!
Turmeric brightening mask
Turmeric has natural antioxidants and is also anti-inflammatory! It helps skin look beautiful by bringing out its natural glow! Plus, this recipe is so darn easy to make!
First, you'll need to mix one tablespoon of turmeric powder and one tablespoon of honey. Once it looks like a fun paste mixture, spread across your face put your feet up and relax for around 20 minutes.
Wash off and look in the mirror for that gorgeous glow!
If your skin feels a little dry and stressed out, why not try making the amazing avocado cocoa moisture mask?
All you'll need to do is mash half of an avocado in a bowl and add one tablespoon of honey and one tablespoon of cocoa powder.
Spread across your face and leave on for 15 minutes then wash off and feel that hydration!
Not many people know this, but cocoa powder is a dream for your skin! It is a great hydrator and will aid health of the skin!
Avocado is not only great for eating but also good to be applied to the skin! All the good fats in avocado help skin to stay moisturised and then honey is great to repair damaged skin.
So, if you are like me and have eczema, or dehydrated skin this would be a great option for you!
Any oily skin here? Then this is perfect for you!
Try making the breakfast mask!
Adding egg yolks to your skin will help to tighten it and pull away from the oil on your skin.
What you will need to do is mix an egg yolk with a tablespoon of honey and a tablespoon of olive oil and about half a cup of oats/oatmeal.
Then rinse with cold water. The cold water helps to treat oily skin by tightening the skin cells.
Did you know that ice is also good to use on your face?
I discovered this recently when my face was feeling tired and worn out after a long day.
I got a cube of ice and left it out for a minute so my hands wouldn't stick to it.
I started rubbing it on my face after I removed my makeup and wow!
My face felt instantly better, and this is a trick that I am definitely going to keep!
It can also combat ageing skin so here's hoping I stay a young spring chicken for as long as possible!
Does anyone have an uneven skin tone?
For you, I would go for The papaya perfect mask!
Mash up papaya and then mix with two tablespoons of honey.
Pop on your face for 20 minutes and wash off!
Papaya has vitamin C in it which can reduce irregular pigmentation and it can also increase collagen production.
Would you like a face mask for glowing skin? Try this super easy mask!
Mix about three tablespoons of freshly squeezed orange juice with three tablespoons of honey.

Oranges are packed with vitamin C which will give your skin an instant gorgeous glow!
How about a face mask to soothe skin down?
We have all had days where our skin needs a little extra TLC!
Try the calming coconut mask for a relaxing treat!
Mash a quarter of an avocado and then add in a teaspoon of honey, and one teaspoon of coconut oil. (You made need to melt the coconut oil if it's hard). And then add in two drops of lavender oil.
Leave on your face for 20 minutes and wash off. Ahhh, that's better!
The 1 ingredient face mask!
Do you have an aloe vera plant in your home?
If not, I suggest that you do!
Well, aloe vera has so many benefits such as!
- Helps to soothe sunburn
- Fights ageing skin
- Helps skin to heal from wounds
- Reduces infection
- It's good for healthy hair and scalp
- It is a good natural treatment for eczema (yay for me!)
- Helps to moisture skin
Just have an aloe vera plant sitting in your home and now and then break off a bit and apply the gel inside to your skin, hair, and scalp!
It helps with so many issues!
