I'm one of those people that doesn't like to splurge on beauty treatments, but I love to pamper myself with fun at-home treatments. I've tried so many products and mastered so many techniques that I could probably open my own salon and spa. I try to avoid harsh chemicals in my skincare products, so my pampering routine consists of a lot of organic, store-bought items. That can get kind of spend-y. This year, I'm excited to try out of few homemade, natural, inexpensive facial masks to add to my primping protocol. Check out these easy recipes, and get your ready to luxuriate in lemon, honey, yogurt, and more.
Acne-Prone Facial Mask
I know, you're not supposed to ever squeeze a pimple. The temptation is so hard to resist sometimes. Make it easy on yourself, and get rid of the goo clogging your pores without relying on harsh chemicals and scrubs. If you've got turmeric on hand, you're halfway to a clearer face. The Global Beauty has a couple of recipes.
Exfoliating Facial Mask
Nothing makes me happier than the feel of smooth skin when I rinse my face in the morning. By the end of the day, it feels rough and weathered from the pollution and stress of life. This black tea and honey exfoliating mask from Tattooed Martha will be first on my must-try list.
Exfoliating Facial Mask for Sensitive Skin
If you have sensitive skin, but still crave the smooth effects of a good exfoliation, then this mask recipe from Stylecaster is for you. Gently buff your skin with a delicate mix of yogurt, coconut oil, lemon, and honey.
Hydrating Facial Mask
Oatmeal, yogurt, and honey sound like the makings of a delicious, hearty breakfast. But, it's also a recipe for a gentle, hydrating mask. This 3-ingredient recipe reduces inflammation and redness, hydrates, and help slough slough off dry, dead skin. Via Elle Sees.
Healing Facial Mask
Honey's natural anti-microbial, anti-bacterial properties keep facial bacteria at bay, while coconut oil is a fabulous moisturizer that can keep skin feeling soft and nourished all day long. The Everygirl also uses this combo to treat hair.
