Homemade Face Masks

Homemade face masks have been used for hundreds of years to moisturize skin. Most of the top skincare ranges in our modern times contain active ingredients that are much the same or derived from the same ingredients - whether chemically derived or natural - as what the likes of Cleopatra or other famous beauties enjoyed.

Avocado Mask for Oily Skin

  1. 1/2 an avocado
  2. 1 tbsp of ground coffee
Mix the two ingredients in a bowl, apply on skin and leave on for up to 30 minutes. The coffee has anti-aging properties and is very acidic, so it's refreshing on oily skin.


  • One whipped egg white
  • 1 tablespoon red wine
  • 3 drops of yarrow oil or bergamot oil or a teaspoon of mashed banana

Mix and allow to sit in the refrigerator for 2 hours or overnight if you have time. Apply in a thin layer to skin and leave on for half and hour to forty minutes. Wash off with warm water and apply your favourite moisturizer.

Oatmeal Mask

One of the most common ingredients to use to make a homemade facial mask is oatmeal. Oatmeal is great for any skin type; it exfoliates and cleanses the skin naturally and gently, while the properties in the oatmeal itself restores the skin's moisture balance and soothes irritations and redness.

For Dried Out Skin

Ideally, mix ½ of the fresh avocado with ¼ cup of honey, 1 egg yolk and 1 tablespoon of essential olive oil. Mix to a paste then apply to your face, leave in place for 20 minutes then rinse off using lukewarm water and dab dry.

Yogurt and Honey

Take 1 teaspoon of ordinary yogurt, ½ teaspoon of proper honey and 1 teaspoon of granulated sugar. Mix thoroughly into a paste. Smooth the mix over your face with your fingers and permit remaining in place for Fifteen minutes. Use tepid to warm water to remove and rinse, dry face softly.
