DIY Face Masks

Sometimes we forget how day-to-day life affects our skin and how a bit of time-out is much needed. Simple, quick and fun are just a few reasons we wanted to try some DIY face masks, and lets not forget, all at a bargain too!

The ingredients in each mask are no doubt already in your kitchen cupboard. Whether you are having a relaxing evening in or a few friends round, the masks are a great solution to help your skin feel a little more loved.

Each product has only 3-4 components meaning they take no time to make at all. By using natural ingredients you know exactly what is in your mask without the worry of any animal testing. So what’s not to love!

Coffee Eye Mask

(Because we want our eye bags to be more wallet sized than a family suitcase)

Ingredients and Benefits:

1 teaspoon of coffee – Reduces redness and inflammation

A pinch of ground black pepper – Helps blood flow

¼ teaspoon coconut oil – Acts as an anti ageing moisturiser

Splash of hot water

Mix it all together (it should look like Marmite) and apply to clean skin. Leave on for 10 mins.

Instant result with soft to touch skin after just 1 use.

Cocoa Hydration Mask

(If you love the smell of chocolate you will love this mask, remember this goes on your skin, not in your mouth)

Ingredients and Benefits:

¼ avocado – Replenishes and hydrates the skin

1 tablespoon of honey – Anti inflammatory and antibacterial, great for acne and blemishes.

1 tablespoon of cocoa powder – Helps repair skin cells.

Mash the avocado and mix all together. Apply to clean skin and leave for 10 mins.

Recommend to use once a week. Great consistency, smells delicious and gives skin a rehydrating boost.

The Breakfast Mask

(Reduces the shine that oily skin gives. Because only the sun should be shining in the morning)

Ingredients and Benefits:

1 egg yolk – Rich in Vitamin A and leaves your skin glowing

1 tablespoon of olive oil – Contains anti-ageing Vitamin E and fights bacteria

6 tablespoon of oats – Removes dead skin cells and exfoliates the skin

1 tablespoon of honey – Anti inflammatory and antibacterial, great for acne and blemishes.

Mix it all together and leave on clean skin for 20 mins.

Once you have got over that there is egg on your face you will see the smooth and shine-reducing result. Recommend to use on a weekly basis.

After each mask make sure you wash off with warm water and moisturise. We would love to see your pictures and hear your reviews on what these masks did for your skin. Enjoy!
