4 Natural Face Masks You Can Make Yourself

When it comes to giving your face a little bit of pampering, it is important you opt for a natural face mask.

Your skin is your biggest organ and some products contain ingredients that are absorbed directly into your bloodstream, which is why natural is best.

Thankfully, there are plenty of ways you can incorporate a more natural approach to your skincare.

To help you get started, here are some easy natural face masks you can make at home.

To hydrate and nourish

What You Need: 

- 1/2 Avocado.

- 1 tablespoon of honey.

- A handful of oats

How It Works:

Honey is an excellent humectant, which means it helps skin retain moisture without feeling oily.  But that's not all. Massaged onto affected areas, it can help with the appearance of scars as it increases healing and tissue regeneration.

Oats are healing on the skin and have moisturising properties. They're amazing at nourishing, calming and soothing skin too.

And because of its ultra-nourishing oils, the addition of mashed avocado will banish any roughness, leaving your skin silky smooth.

Leave it on for 10-15 mins and rinse with lukewarm water.

To fight acne and blemishes

What You Need: 

- 1 tablespoon of manuka honey.

- 1 teaspoon of turmeric powder.

- 1/2 teaspoon of Dead Sea salt. 

How It Works:


The bacteria-killing properties of manuka honey are pretty impressive and turmeric is brilliant at bringing down redness.

Turmeric is also a great natural option for raw, angry, acne-prone skin. It is anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial. Incorporating Dead Sea salt will help to reduce inflammation and infection. Use only a small amount of salt - a little goes a long way.

Used together, they help combat infection, irritation, swelling and excess oils which can block pores and leads to spots and blackheads.

Leave it on for 10-15 minutes and rinse with lukewarm water.

For oily skin

What You Need:

- Half an avocado.

- 1/4 cucumber, blended.

How It Works:

This is an ultra-cooling mask that will leave the skin feeling clean and fresh. Avocado cleverly regulates oil production, it's rich in Oleic Acid which helps reduce inflammation. Cucumber is super hydrating.

Cucumber is mainly made up of water and is great at hydrating the skin. It also contains vitamin C which will help reduce any breakouts.

Leave it on for 10-15 mins and rinse with lukewarm water.
