These ingredients are mostly harmful to the skin. However, there are DIY anti-ageing face masks for smoother and firmer skin.

Acne is a common struggle for both men and women. There are so many DIYs for acne treatment. It can sometimes be confusing. This recipe is easy and simple to make and use. It is an aloe vera mask. Aloe vera is a natural cleanser and calming agent.

6) Homemade anti-inflammatory mask

A long day at work or shuttling around town can make the skin feel red, irritated, and inflamed. This mask recipe helps to take care of such days. It’s easy and simple to make.


  • Papaya (it contains vitamins, enzymes and minerals that reduce irritation and natural moisturizer)


Get half a papaya. Scoop out the seeds. Cut the papaya into cubes and place in a bowl. Use either a blender to puree it or mash it manually until smooth. Wash the irritated areas and face with warm water to open the pores. Apply papaya mask and leave for 15-20 minutes. Rinse off the mask and moisturize.

7) Dry skin face mask routine

Having dry skin can be upsetting and annoying. Sadly too, most of the tutorials and DIY masks online involve oils. These oils usually clog the pores which is bad for the skin. The recipe below is easy and reliable. No dry skin and no pore-clogging.


  • Honey
  • Avocado


Mash half a piece of avocado. Add 1 teaspoon of honey. Mix until smooth. Apply on your face. Leave it on your face for 10, 15 or 20 minutes. Rinse off and moisturize. Easy and simple to do. It makes your face feel and look like a baby’s butt.

8) Oily skin DIY mask

The ingredients for treating oily skin are not as mind-boggling and tedious as some tutorials make them look. Two or three ingredients are all it takes to achieve perfect oil-free skin. To absorb excess oil on the face, you can use an oily skin DIY mask.


  • Aloe Vera
  • Egg white
  • Honey


Mask 1

Apply honey on the skin in the morning. Leave for a minimum of 20 minutes. Rinse with warm water. Dry your face and apply moisturizer. So simple, it can be done every day.

Mask 2

Mix 2 tablespoons of extracted Aloe Vera gel, and 1 egg white in a bowl. Aloe Vera has properties that hydrate the skin among other things. And egg white contains properties that can unclog the pores of the skin. As well as natural antibacterial properties. Okay so after beating the two together, apply them on the face. Leave this on for 10-15 minutes. Rinse and moisturize.

9) Dark spots face mask

YouTube has a ton of DIY tutorials on getting rid of dark spots. Turmeric isn’t the only DIY ingredient for dark spots. The following ace mask might not be the conventional DIY but it works.


  • Slice of onion( it has properties that work magic in getting rid of scars and marks).
  • 1 clove of garlic( it helps blood circulation).


Cut a slice of onion into a bowl. Peel garlic and add to the onion. Grind and mix, until a paste is formed. Apply on dark spots and leave for 20 minutes (the smell is a small price to pay for a dark spot-free face). Wash off the paste, until the smell is washed off. Apply a moisturizer. Doing this once a day is enough.

10) Glowing and dull skin mask

To get glowing skin is not as hard as many people make it sound. It doesn’t need a lot of ingredients and procedures. We will be sharing two different DIYs to help you glow and get rid of your dull skin. They can be done on a daily or weekly basis. For a better effect, it should be done frequently.


  • 1 cup of water
  • 1 green teabag
  • Raspberries
  • Half avocado
  • 2 tablespoons of oatmeal


Mask 1

Boil one cup of water. Add green teabags and boil for 3 minutes. Cut open the teabag and pour the leaves into a bowl (the liquid is good for the body). Slice 6 raspberries and mash together with tea leaves, until fully incorporated. Apply on clean and dry skin. Leave it on for a minimum of 20 minutes, before washing. Then follow through with a normal skin routine, i.e. moisturizers, etc.

Mask 2

Mash avocado in a small bowl. Add oatmeal and mix. Until fully incorporated. Apply mask to the skin and leave for a minimum of 15-20. Wash with cold water and pat dry. Apply moisturizers and done.


What is more beneficial is that there are varieties of natural face mask DIYs to try out. For those who prefer a specific routine, picking a natural face mask to stick with will be easy. The face responds better to natural remedies easily accessible at home and in the groceries than to chemical-based skin care products saturating the market.
