We’re not sure what it is about summer, but there’s something about the summertime that just makes us feel the need to do face masks more than usual! We’re pretty sure this is partially due to the fact that we spend so much time on the beach and apply sun screen to our faces. Rather than simply buying the masks at the store, however, we always find that we have much better results when we make them ourselves using all natural ingredients! Because we like to do them quite often and changing up the kind of scent makes things more exciting, however, so we’ve always got our eyes peeled for new recipes and homemade kinds.
1. DIY honey and coconut oil face mask
Have you been hoping to find a simple, low maintenance face mask that’s great for giving your pores an easy clear out with each application? Then we think you’re looking for precisely what Mother’s Nichem shows you how to make here! By combining honey and coconut oil, you’re applying anti-bacterial and soothing ingredients to your face to get a natural glow.
2. Homemade avocado face mask
Rather than simply looking to clear out your pores, are you actually hoping to calm redness and absorb excess oil? Well, that’s the same skin type we have, so we can’t say we blame you! We’ve had great luck with this wonderfully smooth and cool feeling face mask that Freebie Finding Mom shows you how to make from avocado, ripe banana, and olive oil.
3. Simple coffee mud face mask
Perhaps you’re looking to absorb excess oils from your face but, rather than worrying about redness, you’d rather add an element that might exfoliate your skin as you was it off? In that case, we think you’ll get along a little better with something like this simple coffee mud mask outlined step by step on Be Daze Live.
4. Brightening turmeric and lemon mask
Besides adding a fun, bright colour to any mask you make and smelling great, turmeric actually also has anti-inflammatory properties as well, making it quite beneficial indeed for your skin. Lemon, on the other hand, has a brightening effect that has the capacity to make you feel revitalized. That’s why we loved this fantastic face mask from The Glowing Fridge that combines the two in one place! Honey makes for a good antibacterial mixing agent while oatmeal exfoliates.
