Homemade Face Masks Recipes – How To Make Homemade Face Masks?

Best Homemade Face Masks Recipes for clean, glowing and radiant skin.

Masks have been used for beautification and purification for both the face as well as the body since the ancient civilizations. Clay was especially valued and used as body paint during important rituals and events for its color variations.

Nowadays masks are used generally for cosmetic purposes to deep-clean the skin. Depending on their ingredients, they can increase circulation, tone and tighten, remove toxins, act as nonabrasive exfoliants, hydrate, calm inflammation, moisturize, and soften the skin.

Masks can be made from multiple natural ingredients such as various clays, brewer’s yeast, or grains, which absorb excess oil and dead cells from our skin’s surface and helps to stimulate a sluggish complexion.

Clay Homemade Face Mask Recipe

Clay is one of the most used ingredients in homemade face masks recipes.  Its masks help to gently exfoliate, stimulate circulation, remineralize, and soften the skin. As it can be customized according to skin type, this mask is soft enough to be used by anyone. You can also mix it with water, to make an excellent overnight pimple treatment.

Just apply a dab to each pimple using a cotton swab and leave on while you sleep. In the morning, rinse off the remaining bits of the mask with warm water. The clay absorbs excess oil during the night and helps in healing the blemishes.

Suitable for: All skin types
Follow with: Moisturizer
Tools: Small bowl, spoon or tiny whisk
Usage: 1 or 2 times per week

Instructions

Take a bowl and combine the clay with appropriate liquid to form a smooth, spreadable paste. Whisk or stir the mixture using a spoon to remove any lumps.

Application

Spread the paste onto the face and neck using your fingers or a brush and allow to dry completely for around 20 to 30 minutes. The mask will lift and tighten the skin. Rinse it off.

Oatmeal Homemade Face Mask Recipe

This mask acts as a mild exfoliant and its light bleaching action helps to even blotchy skin tone if used at least twice per week.

Ingredients: (5) tsp buttermilk, (4) tsp ground oatmeal
Suitable for: All skin types except very sensitive, sunburned, or irritated skin
Follow with: Moisturizer
Tools: Small bowl and spoon
Usage: 2 or 3 times per week

Combine both ingredients in a small bowl and let the mixture thicken for a few minutes. Then give it a few stirs again to remove any lumps. Add a tad more buttermilk if the mixture is too thick.

Application: Using your fingers, apply the mixture all over your face and neck. Let the mask dry for 20 to 30 minutes and rinse off.

Egg White Homemade Face Mask

Instructions

Combine the egg white and cornstarch in a small bowl and beat with a fork until it’s foamy and well blended. Make sure the mixture isn’t lumpy.

Application

Using fingers apply the mask evenly onto the face and throat. Lying down would be good to avoid wrinkles. Let it dry for about 20 minutes and rinse it off with water.

Yogurt Homemade Face Mask Recipe

Yogurt is great for treating blotchy, uneven skin. With repeated use, it slightly lightens and evens skin tone. Plain yogurt also works as a very gentle, soothing exfoliant that becomes more effective with repeated use.

Ingredients: (1) tablespoon plain yogurt
Suitable for: All skin types except very sensitive skin
Follow with: Moisturizer
Tools: Small spoon
Usage: 1 to 2 times per week or as desired

Application

Using your fingers or a cosmetic brush, apply the yogurt to your face and neck. You can lie down as the yogurt can become a bit runny when it reaches skin temperature. Leave on for 20 to 30 minutes and rinse it off.

Brewer’s Yeast Homemade Face Mask

This mask stimulates circulation and gives a definite rosy glow, making it excellent for the sluggish or clogged complexion. It may tingle as it starts to dry and tightens the skin quickly, which is normal. In case it starts to sting beyond your comfort level, rinse it off immediately with cold water and apply a moisturizer.

Ingredients: (1) tablespoon edible brewer’s yeast flakes, (2) tsp milk (low fat) or water
Suitable for: Oily, combination, acne, normal, or oily skin
Follow with: Moisturizer
Tools: Small bowl and spoon
Usage: 1 to 2 times per week

Instructions

Combine all the ingredients in a small bowl to form a smooth paste. You may need more or less liquid depending on the brand of yeast you are using and the size of the flakes.

Application

Apply the mask all over your face and throat in a thin layer. If the chest or back region is blemished, apply there as well. When the mask has dried for about 20 minutes, rinse with cool water to soothe skin.

Papaya Homemade Face Mask Recipe

This mask leaves your skin with a wonderful glow and even tone with its slight bleaching action. The papaya and pineapple contain certain protein-dissolving enzymes that help to dissolve and diminish dry scaly skin, which, over time, can build up on your skin and gives a dull appearance.

Its repeated use can make your pores appear smaller by the removal of dead skin debris, which can clog and stretch the pore wall.

Ingredients: ¼ cup freshly mashed raw papaya, 1 tsp fresh raw pineapple juice
Suitable for: All skin types except sensitive, sunburned, or irritated skin
Follow with: Moisturizer
Tools: Mortar and Pestle, small bowl and fork
Usage: 1 time per week

Mash the papaya using a mortar and pestle or a small bowl and fork, and mix the pineapple juice until the two are thoroughly blended and a smooth paste is formed.

Application

Gently pat the mixture onto the face and neck using your fingers, and lie down for about 15 to 20 minutes with a towel around your head and behind your neck as the paste can be a bit runny.

Your face might feel a tingling situation during this time. It just means the natural fruit acids are working and you can relax. After 20 minutes, rinse it off and pat dry.

Honey and Wheat Germ Homemade Face Mask

Honey acts as a humectant and draws moisture from the air to the skin, and helps in soothing, moisturizing, and hydrating. It’s amazing to use during the cold, dry winter season or area with low humidity and also works great if you travel quite a lot via airplane.

Ingredients: (1) tbsp fresh raw honey, (1) tsp fresh raw wheat germ, (1) tsp sunflower meal
Suitable for: All skin types, especially, dehydrated, sensitive and dry skin
Follow with: Moisturizer
Tools: Small bowl and spoon

Combine all the ingredients thoroughly in a small bowl and let it sit for a couple of minutes.

Application

Pat the mixture all over your face and neck with your fingers, and lie down, relax, and let it dry for around 30 minutes. Rinse it off with a very warm, damp cloth. Make sure to tuck your hair away from your face before application or you might end up with a sticky mess.
