Your Own Face Masks

Face masks can be expensive, but the experience of putting something on your face that will (hopefully) change the texture of your skin-and make you feel like a fancy spa patron-is incredibly satisfying. Luckily, there are DIY versions of most masks that can be made with household items, for a whole lot less cash.

Clay Witch Hazel T-Zone Mask

The t-zone area for many usually produces the most oil and can be the home of breakouts. You’ll want to use this mask on the forehead, chin and nose region, as it’s designed to control oil, fight bacteria and curb acne.

  • prep 5 mins
  • cook 10 mins
  • total 15 mins

yield 1 mask

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon witch hazel
  • 1 teaspoon bentonite clay
  • 2 drops lemon essential oil (optional)

Instructions

  1. Combine ingredients and stir until blended. Don’t use metal spoons or bowls to mix.
  2. Apply to your forehead, chin, and nose with clean fingers and leave on for 10 minutes. Super oily skin types can leave on for up to 20 minutes.
  3. Rinse off with warm water.

Carrot Eye Mask

The area around the eyes show signs of aging the quickest because this area of the skin has the fewest oil glands, making it prone to dehydration and fine lines. You’ll want to treat the eye area with it’s own powerful mask to best fight fine lines and firm the skin.

  • prep 5 mins
  • cook 15 mins
  • total 20 mins

yield 1 mask

Ingredients

  • 1 egg white
  • 1 tablespoon finely shredded carrot. Use a regular carrot, not a baby carrot. Baby carrots loose a lot of their natural nutrients when turned into little nubs.
  • 1 teaspoon aloe vera

Instructions

  1. Combine egg white, carrot and aloe vera in a small bowl. Beat mixture together with a fork until frothy (about 1 minute).
  2. With clean hands or a brush, apply the mask around and under the eyes. Avoid the eyelids because you don’t want to get it in your eyes.
  3. Let the mask dry for at least 15 minutes or up to 30 minutes. You will definitely feel the mask tightening your skin! But if it gets uncomfortable, go ahead and remove it.
  4. Use a soft, wet towel to gently clean off the mask.

Vitamin E + Avocado Mask

The sections around the outer edges of the face, usually the neck, temples, and outer cheeks, can also be dry and often need extra hydration. Choose a mask that will help retain your own skin’s moisture.

  • prep 5 mins
  • cook 10 mins
  • total 15 mins

yield 1 mask

Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon vitamin E oil (about 3 vitamin E capsules)
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1/4 avocado

Instructions

  1. Mix all of the ingredients in a bowl and apply to your neck and dry areas for 10-15 minutes, rinse off with warm water.
