Homemade face masks, but we aren’t talking Halloween. We are talking beauty.

It is so relaxing to treat yourself to a spa treatment. Unfortunately, a day at the spa can be somewhat costly. Fortunately, there is nothing wrong with having your spa day at home, in your bathroom, relaxing in your jammies and robe. A long, hot bath…soft music…some candles…hair in a towel…and a homemade face mask. Ahhh, feeling relaxed already, huh?

There are some great recipes out in cyber-world for facial style masks without the cost of a facial at a spa. Most are made to fill a specific facial need. It is best to use all-natural products with high standards of purity. Remember to start with a clean and dry face. Here are a few ideas.


Hydrating Mask

An avocado mask is great for hydration. This is helpful for people who have spent some time outdoors, or maturing skin.

½ ripe avocado-mashed
1 tsp honey
1 tsp plain, organic yogurt
*2 tsp olive oil (*optional - use for intense moisturizing)

Mix the mashed, smooth avocado with the yogurt and honey until it forms a paste. Apply to your face. Leave it on for approximately 15 minutes. Rinse with lukewarm water.


Acne Fighting Mask

Acne is an issue not only for teenagers. A soothing acne mask will calm breakouts down and refresh the skin. Honey is an anti-microbial ingredient and cinnamon has anti-inflammatory properties, so this combination is great for fighting acne. A recipe from Queen Bee Salon & Spa is highly recommended.

2 Tbs honey
1 tsp cinnamon

Mix honey and cinnamon into a paste. Apply to acne affected areas. Leave on for 10-15 minutes. You can allow the mask to sit, or steam your face while the mask is on. Rinse completely with warm water, not hot.


Glowing Sensitive Skin

Sensitive skin requires TLC. Masks, when you have sensitive skin, can be a case of trial and error. Sensitive skin can be dry or oily, young or mature. You must try some to find what works for you. Here is a DIY facial mask that will give sensitive skin an instant glow without causing irritation.

2/3 cup cooked carrots
1-2 Tbs honey

Make a smooth paste with the carrots and honey. Apply to your face. Leave on for 10-15 minutes; do not allow this to dry completely. Wash with plain, warm water.


Exfoliating Mask

Exfoliation is good for the face, and your body. As skin cells mature and die, they tend to collect on the outer layer of the skin. If left there, your complexion appears dull and possibly blotchy. It is a good idea to exfoliate using a gentle scrubbing cleanser, a washcloth or an exfoliating mask. The website theindianspot.com has a few recipes for exfoliating masks. Here is one of my favorites, and if you get some on your lips, it is tasty.

1 Tbs plain yogurt
1 tsp sugar

Mix well, then apply a thick layer to your face and neck. Let the mask slightly dry, approximately 15 minutes. With wet fingers, exfoliate the face gently using a circular motion. Rinse very well with warm water, ensuring there isn’t a sticky feeling left behind.


Adding a facial mask to your beauty routine is a simple way to improve your skin’s appearance and a relaxing way to treat yourself. If you are looking for an ageless face, a glowing complexion, or an acne treatment, a DIY facial can be a perfect complement to your beauty schedule. Be sure to follow up your DIY face mask with all-natural moisturizing products like those offered here at farragio.
