Having a facial mask at home is quite expensive. Also, it’s quite hard to find different brands and types of masks that you know won’t harm your face. It happened to me once, I tried a facial mask and then after a few minutes, my face got so irritated! Then by morning, I got pimples and my skin was all red… A disaster! Now, I’m thinking twice before buying masks…
To avoid the same misadventure than me, here are some safe facial masks to make at home:
1. Strawberry Facial Mask
- 8 Fresh strawberries
- 3 Tablespoons of honey
In a bowl, mash the strawberries with a fork until smooth. Add in the honey and mix the ingredients together. Using clean hands or a sanitised brush, gently apply the mixture all over your face, avoiding the eye area. Lie down and leave the mask on for 10 to 15 minutes. Wash it away with warm water, pat your face dry and follow up with your favourite toner and moisturiser
2. Kiwi Facial Masks
- 4 Kiwi Finely Chopped
- 1 Tablespoon of Yoghurt
Mixed the chopped kiwi with the tablespoon of yoghurt. Apply the paste evenly on your face. Leave it on for 15-20 minutes and then wash off with warm water for a glowing skin.
3. Coffee Powder
- 1 teaspoon Coffee Powder
- 1 teaspoon Honey
Mix the above two ingredients and apply on washed face and neck in circular motion. Let it gets completely dry for at least 15 minutes. Wash your face with cold water and wipe with a wet tissue to remove the stain of coffee, if any.
4. Aloe Vera Facial Masks
- 2 tsp Aloe Vera Gel
- 1 tsp Egg White
Cut off a leaf from the plant and scrape out the gel, mix it with egg white to make a smooth paste. Apply this mask generously on your clean face and let it dry for 15 minutes. Wash your face with cold water.
5. Coconut Oil Facial Mask
- 1 tbsp Coconut Oil
- ¼ tbsp Turmeric
Mix these two ingredients in mentioned proportion and apply on your face. Wash your face after 15 – 20 min with cold water and pat dry.
