How To Make Your Own Spa-Quality Face Masks

A decent face mask can treat just about everything.

They're just as good at relieving tension from a bad day at work as they are in removing ugly dry spots, shrinking pores, and removing pimples.

However, instead of heading to Selfridges to get your next mask fix, you might want to look closer to home.

Trust us on this one: simple ingredients like yoghurt have exfoliating capabilities comparable to those found in a lot of skincare products, while honey is wonderful for fighting germs that cause spots, and cacao powder is a great glow-booster - hello, supermodel skin.

So, whether your new J.W. Anderson clogs have cost you more than you anticipated or you just want to get creative in the kitchen, here are the greatest and most spa-worthy homemade face masks to make right now.

Before you go rummaging through your kitchen cabinets, keep the following in mind...

1. Don't Put Certain Ingredients Directly on Your Skin

According to Lorraine Scrivener, "DIY face masks are totally safe," but "there are a few at-home ingredients you should avoid placing directly on the skin without pre-mixing first, such as lemons and apple cider vinegar."


'These could make the skin more susceptible to light and potentially induce skin bleaching,' she says.

2. Double-check the sell-by dates.

That jar of yoghurt you've had in your fridge for a long time? Yes, even if it's unopened, don't use it. It's not a smart idea to spread anything on your face that you wouldn't eat; you want skin that's clear, glowing, and beautiful, not full of red spots.

3. First, perform a patch test.

It's always a good idea to run a fast patch test before trying out a new laser or acid treatment to see how your skin will react.

'If in doubt, patch test on an out-of-sight region, such as the side of the neck, before applying all over the face,' Lorraine advises, because an allergic response isn't fun.

'Over-the-counter skin products are subjected to extensive testing and contain preservatives and anti-irritants, and while raw ingredients may appear to be a more natural option, it's always best to test them first,' she says.

4. Apply the mask on the same day that you make it.

Ingredients that are exposed to air and germs will soon deteriorate and may irritate the skin. Make your mask with fresh ingredients and use it within an hour after making it to be safe.
