DIY Face Masks For Self Care at Home

We love natural face masks that use simple and delicious ingredients we all have in our cupboard. We love them even more when they only take 2-3 minutes to prepare and do wonders for the skin and your mood. All the face masks listed below are vegan, cruelty-free and super indulgent. We’ve warned you…

Also check out our bonuses at the end of each recipe. Each face mask can also be made as a vegan, gluten-free and healthy recipe.

Cooling Cucumber

Refreshment for cool, soft skin.

1 Cucumber (Grated)

1 tbsp Lemon Juice

3 Fresh Mint Leaves (Crushed)

Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Apply to face and neck. After 15 minutes, rinse off thoroughly.

 

Bonus: Why not also drink it? While you wait for your face mask to spread its goodness, you can also put the same ingredients in a glass filled with sparkling water, and add 1 tsp. of maple syrup. The only difference is to not grate the cucumber but thinly slice 3 or 4 strips.

 

Oatmeal Energiser

Energising and reinvigorating.

45g Whole or Rolled Oats

60ml Unsweetened Almond or Coconut Milk

1 tbsp Raw Apple Cider Vinegar

Blend the oats in a food processor until no large chunks remain. Add the remaining ingredients and pulse until well mixed. Apply to face and neck. After 10-20 minutes rinse thoroughly.

 

Bonus: In the meantime, why not prepare a porridge? We love this delicious recipe from Minimalist Baker: The Perfect Bowl of Oats

 

Chocolate Pudding

Rich, indulgent pampering for silky smooth skin.

1 Avocado

2 tbsp Cacao Powder

1 tbsp Agave Nectar

Mix all ingredients in a bowl until smooth. Apply to face and neck. After 10 minutes rinse thoroughly.

 

Bonus: you can also make some chocolate mousse pots. Instead of using 1 full avocado, use only half. Sweeten with natural sweeteners according to your preference.

 

Turmeric Chickpea Dream

Great for acne-prone skin that needs a calming moment.

2 tbsp Chickpea Flour

½ tsp Unsweetened Coconut Milk

1 tsp Cucumber Juice

1/3 tsp Turmeric

Mix all ingredients in a bowl to form a paste. Apply to face. After 15 minutes (don’t let paste dry) rinse thoroughly (makes 2 applications).
