Best DIY Facials to Pamper Yourself at Home

During a pandemic, going to the spa is probably not top of your list of things to do. But self-care is still important during times like these, perhaps even more necessary. So skip the trip to the spa and test out these following face masks (not that kind) with ingredients that you most likely have lying in your kitchen.

For Clogged Pores

  • 1 tbsp. coconut oil
  • 1 tsp. baking soda

Mix together to form a paste and rub gently into skin with fingers. Wash off with cold water and use a clean towel to dry your face.

Combining these two ingredients creates an exfoliant that can get rid of dry skin and dirt, making your face look radiant.

For Dry Skin

  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1 tbsp. honey
  • A handful of oats

Avocados contain fatty acids that can help to moisturize your skin. Mixed with honey’s antioxidant properties, this mask will not only soften your skin but will also help with inflammation. Throw some oats in the mix to remove dry skin cells, and this mask will leave your face feeling like silk.

For Oily Skin

  • ½ tbsp. coconut oil
  • ½ tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp. plain yogurt

Lemons can be used as an astringent in order to tone skin and reduce oil. Combined with the moisturizing powers of coconut oil and yogurt and this mask will help to absorb oil without over-drying your skin, giving you the best of both worlds.

For Dark Spots

  • 1 medium banana, mashed
  • 1/4 cup plain yogurt
  • 2 tbsp. honey

There are so many things that bananas are good for besides just being a tasty treat. Vitamin A in bananas is great for lightening dark spots and it also smoothes aging skin. While you could just apply a mashed banana to your face in order to improve your skin, you can also combine it with yogurt and honey in order to create a moisturizing and acne fighting mask.

For Blackheads

  • 1 egg white
  • 1 tbsp. lemon juice

Mix these two ingredients together and apply to areas with blackheads, which are usually the nose, forehead and cheeks. Allow the mask to dry before rinsing off. Both egg whites and lemon juice work well as toners and can be used to tighten your pores.
