We totally covet those spa days away from the house and family, but let’s be real here: Getting time to yourself outside of home base is practically impossible, unless you’re running errands or going to work. Instead of completely writing off your day of relaxation, we totally recommend trying one of these amazing DIY face masks.
We love that these recipes are made from all-natural ingredients like honey and oatmeal, and they are all very different. We’ve rounded up masks for everything from simple exfoliation to getting rid of those annoying acne scars.
Try these recipes at home during the kids’ naptime or whip out the yummy ingredients for an at-home spa day with your special little girl! Either way, definitely try one and let us know how they worked out!
Ultimate Acne Solution: Although we can’t promise a complete solution for breakouts (if only!), Twist Me Pretty’s recipe for a “Burning Face Mask” may help with the aftermath. The name is a bit harsh, but this natural recipe combines the anti-inflammatory action of Nutmeg with the antiseptic power of lemon to help reduce the appearance of acne scars.
Revitalizing Citrus: We love the soothing effects of oatmeal and yogurt mixed with the acidic features of orange juice in Food Plus Words’ face mask recipe.
Moisturizing Avocado: Enjoy the buttery properties of avocado in Remaking Mommy’s mask recipe to soothe away irritation.
Age-Defying Exfoliation: Pop a few Vitamin E capsules into the cinnamon and honey mixture on One Good Thing By Jillee to repair and protect your skin.
Glowing Skin: Henry Happened recommends spicing up your mask with a little bit of turmeric to help even out color and get the blood flowing for a healthy glow.
