Tutorial for Homemade Face Masks

I will be the first to admit that homemade face masks can be a little dangerous. You're probably doing more harm than good to your skin unless you're using a recipe with simple, soothing components (looking at you, baking soda and lemon). But it doesn't rule out all DIY masks; you just need to know which ones are the safest to try. That's where I enter the picture.

With mild ingredients like aloe vera, honey, and oatmeal, I did you a favor by locating 12 easy-as-pie face mask recipes that address everything from rosacea flare-ups to stress-induced breakouts. Keep scrolling to uncover the perfect recipe for your skin type if you're ready to try the DIY lifestyle with ingredients that even your dermatologist will approve. Don't yell at me if your roommate accuses you of wasting all the avocados (excellent skin is worth it!).

This homemade face mask will brighten up your skin if it's looking a little tired

Despite the fact that YouTuber AnitaSamantha's face mask is prepared with only two (!) components, it nonetheless packs a tremendous punch. Green tea and raspberries in the mix, which are high in antioxidants and vitamin C, assist to brighten dull, blemished skin with each use. Isn't it impressive? Here's all you'll need to give it a shot:

The ingredients are as follows:

1 quart of water (boiled)
1 green tea teabag
6 raspberry berries

After steeping your green tea for two minutes in boiling water (which, by the way, has anti-inflammatory characteristics that help reduce redness and irritation), slice open the top of the bag and put the tea leaves into a small bowl. Use a fork to mash the ingredients together into a paste (it's alright if it's a little chunky—simply that's the natural texture of the berries). After it has cooled, apply it to clean, dry skin and leave it to work for 15 minutes.

For fine lines and wrinkles, try this DIY face mask

Bananas are chock-full of potassium, vitamin B-6, vitamin C, and vitamin A, making them ideal for hydrating, brightening, and even temporarily plumping fine wrinkles in DIY face masks. When you add anti-inflammatory honey, calming yogurt, and brightening turmeric to the mix, you've got yourself a fairly potent formula. Immy Maryam, a YouTuber, does it this way:

The ingredients are as follows:

1 banana, ripe
1/2 teaspoon honey (raw)
1 teaspoon yogurt (full-fat)
1 teaspoon turmeric

The secret to duplicating this face mask is to use an equal amount of banana and banana peel (which contains the majority of the nutrients). Slice the skin with a knife, mash the banana with a fork, and stir in the remaining ingredients until a yellow mixture forms. Apply a little amount to clean skin and leave it on for 10 minutes. Don't forget to moisturize after rinsing the mixture completely off. Trust us when we say that your skin will feel noticeably softer.

This dark-circle-fighting under-eye mask is made at home

I understand it: Sometimes you just want a face mask that targets specific areas, and this recipe is the one to use if you're seeking for a quick fix for puffy under-eye bags. Caffeine has the potential to constrict blood vessels and temporarily tighten your skin, therefore ground coffee is the star of this recipe from vlogger Kalasini Rani. I don't know about you, but that sounds like a very simple way to wake up your face. To get started, you'll need the following items:

The ingredients are as follows:

1/2 tablespoon coffee (ground)
1 teaspoon honey (raw) (more if needed)

In a small bowl, combine all of your ingredients and gradually add additional honey until you get a thin, liquid-y paste. Because the idea is to apply the mixture exclusively beneath your eyes, you'll want to use a little fan brush to apply it. Allow it to sit on your skin for no more than 10 minutes before rinsing it off. Your bags will seem smoother and less puffy right away.

Face mask for eczema created at home

YouTuber Loepsie breaks down a super simple face mask recipe for irritated, sensitive, or eczema-prone skin in this post. BTW, it's soft enough to use on any part of your body, so spread it on those dry regions on your legs and arms as well. What you'll need is the following:

The ingredients are as follows:

Oatmeal, 1 tbsp
1 teaspoon honey (raw)
a half teaspoon of water

Oatmeal is the star of this easy DIY since it possesses antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that assist to soothe dry skin and exfoliate dead skin cells. It's a wonderful skin-soothing delight when it's combined with antibacterial honey (and a little h2o for consistency). To achieve the full relaxing benefits, crush all of the ingredients in a bowl, apply a thin layer to clean skin, and let it on for around 10 minutes.

This lip mask is produced at home and is great for cracked lips

Although this isn't technically a face mask, your chapped lips are in desperate need of some TLC. Keep in mind that vlogger AnitaSamantha's recipe is a little too harsh for delicate or inflamed skin, and it should only be applied on dry lips once a week. Is that clear? Cool, go ahead and gather your supplies:

The ingredients are as follows:

1/2 tablespoon cane sugar (organic)
1/2 tablespoon honey (filtered)

You only need two ingredients: organic cane sugar (which gives the mask its rough, exfoliating feel) and filtered honey (which is loaded with antioxidants and helps your skin retain moisture). Mix everything together, gently rub it on your lips, and rinse it off after five minutes at most. Don't forget to apply lip balm afterward.

This face mask for fatigued skin can be created at home

Do you ever have those days when your skin just doesn't look right? That's when this DIY face mask comes in handy. It's refreshing and relaxing, and it leaves your skin looking dewy. But don't take my word for it; YouTuber Georgia Peach's flawless skin is more than enough proof.

The ingredients are as follows:

1 tablespoon yogurt (Greek)
1 teaspoon of oats
1 tablespoon of honey

Not only does slathering Greek yogurt all over your face feel very effing wonderful (just me? ), but it's also packed with lactic acid (which helps soften your skin) and probiotics (which helps soothe inflammation). Mix it with oatmeal and honey in a bowl, then apply it to clean skin for 10 to 15 minutes before rinsing it off with warm water. Trust me when I say that your skin will feel amazing.

This face mask for acne can be created at home

Nicoletta Xo, a beauty vlogger, lays down four distinct DIY face masks for acne-prone skin, including a calming, dark-spot-busting solution made with nutmeg, honey, and milk, as well as a brightening, anti-inflammatory mask made with turmeric, yogurt, and honey. But what's my personal favorite? This tea tree oil spot-treatment mask is a great way to get rid of blemishes.

The ingredients are as follows:

a drop of tea tree oil 1 tablespoon aloe vera gel

Okay, so tea tree oil, which is a natural antibacterial and acne-fighter, is far too strong to pour all over your face (even as a spot treatment, it can burn your skin if it isn't diluted enough). However, moisturizing, relaxing aloe is used in this mask to counteract the possibly irritating effects while soothing inflamed, broken-out skin. Allow it to sit on clean, dry skin for 10 minutes before rinsing it off and moisturizing.

This face mask for blackheads can be created at home

 Vlogger Ava Jules teaches us how to make her favorite DIY face masks, scrubs, and peels in this guide, utilizing anything from egg whites (a natural astringent) to my personal favorite, charcoal powder (an oil absorber), in this DIY mask below.

The ingredients are as follows:

2 teaspoons unflavored gelatin

2 tablespoons water

6 activated charcoal capsules (broken open)

Mix all of the ingredients together, then apply a thick layer to your nose, essentially creating your own DIY pore strip (don't worry, this one is much gentler). Pore strips can irritate your skin barrier to the point of causing more breakouts and blackheads over time, so avoid them and try this instead).

Charcoal acts as a natural "magnet," drawing out and absorbing excess oil from the skin, making it ideal for oily, blackhead-prone areas. However, because this mask dries into a peel-off mask, only use it on your nose, where your skin is less sensitive.

This face mask for inflammation can be created at home

I'll pretty much try anything vlogger SweetPotatoSoul (uh, attractive) suggests because she has really good skin. She lays down three different anti-inflammatory masks in this guide, one of which uses aloe vera and matcha powder and is my personal favorite.

The ingredients are as follows:

2 tbsp aloe vera juice (or, in a pinch, aloe vera gel)
1 tsp green tea powder (matcha)

Matcha powder is thought to have redness-reducing and anti-inflammatory effects, while aloe vera is naturally soothing and mildly hydrating (it's honestly deadly for itching and inflamed skin—what up, my rosacea comrades). Blend them together, slather the mixture on your face (you can freeze it for 10 minutes first for added cooling power), leave on for 15 minutes, then rinse and moisturize.

This face mask for dry skin can be created at home

If you have dry skin, you're probably aware that the bulk of dry-skin solutions contain heavy oils, which might clog your pores if you're acne-prone. That's why I'm a fan of vlogger Iamvenessae's avocado-and-honey DIY face mask. It has only two components and is extremely simple to make at home.


1 tablespoon honey,

half an avocado,mashed

Avocados are high in fatty acids, which assist to soothe and moisturize your dry skin barrier, while honey is a natural hydrator and astringent (it may be used to treat acne and inflammatory skin issues without drying or irritating your skin). Mix the two together, slather it on your face, then wash it off after 10 minutes (or 15! Or 20!). What a wonderful existence).

This face mask for dark spots can be created at home

Although this isn't a traditional tutorial video, it's nonetheless quite convincing for anyone dealing with hyperpigmentation and acne scars. Vlogger Supa Natural tried a three-day trial of putting a straight turmeric mask to her skin. “I can see my skin is really calm—the redness is nearly gone, and it just feels so smooth, and I'm just delighted I did this,” she says after three days.

Turmeric is the key ingredient here; it's an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory that's been shown to lighten discolouration while also destroying bacteria on the skin. Isn't it cool?


1 teaspoon powdered turmeric
plain yogurt (two tablespoons) (or olive oil, or your favorite face oil)

Although she only uses turmeric and water in the video, I've found that using straight turmeric without a "buffer" can turn your skin vivid yellow for a short time. So, to build a barrier and prevent any jaundice-like feelings, mix in a little yogurt or oil, let it on for 10 to 15 minutes, then rinse off with your regular face cleanser.

This face mask for oily skin can be created at home

What's the deal with homemade face masks for oily skin? They're usually packed with ultra-stripping, ultra-abrasive substances that do more harm than good. However, this gentle method from Khichi Beauty uses only two ingredients to help absorb excess oil without harming your skin: egg whites and aloe.

The ingredients are as follows:

1 beaten egg white
2 tbsp aloe vera juice (or, in a pinch, aloe vera gel)

I know, putting raw eggs on your skin sounds gross, but egg whites contain a natural antibiotic that can help prevent clogged pores while also absorbing excess oil. (They won't be as effective as clinically researched and designed acne remedies, but unless you're allergic to eggs, they can't hurt.)

Aloe, of course, is an all-star when it comes to calming, soothing, and hydrating. This two-in-one face mask will help calm your skin if it's overproducing oil as a result of irritation. Mix the ingredients together, then dollop them onto your face and leave them on for 10 minutes before rinsing them off.
