Guest post : Four DIY Skincare Masks Using Everyday Ingredients!

It is not always about buying the best and the most expensive of creams, chemicals, and products. Your kitchen pantry is where you need to hunt for that glow you have always wanted to have, but couldn’t get from any of the products that you tested. You can do wonders for your hair and skin with the help of simple foods and common ingredients. It may be astounding to know of some of the foods that you can use to make DIY face masks for yourself. Let’s take a look at them.

Lemon Mask

When it comes to lemons, it is safe to say that they are natural detoxifiers. They are the ones that create the perfect balance of the pH level for your skin and also have the same effect on it. Lemons release all the impurities of the skin, and they are great citric ingredients that help rejuvenate the skin. A fresh and vibrant look is what you get after using a DIY Face Mask that has lemon.


Juice of half a lemon
Gram flour- 1 tbsp
Turmeric powder- a pinch
Grated tomato juice from half a tomato
Rose water– few drops

Preparation and Application

This mask is simple to prepare. All you have to do is combine all the ingredients. Apply all over the face avoiding the eye area. You can also use the mask on the neck area. Wait for 15-20 minutes so that it completely cools down and hardens up. Then take a soft cloth dipped in warm water and gently rub it on your face. This mask is my personal favorite, and I keep making additions to it according to my time and convenience.

Honey Mask

Honey is one such ingredient which works wonders for your skin. It is the best when used raw, and it is rather a natural moisturizer. There are so many properties that honey has. It is even preventive against any microbial infections and is great for acne. Skin looks much younger and better when you make use of honey regularly as your body gets high in antioxidants.

Ingredients needed for the honey mask:

Just 1 tbsp of raw honey

Preparation and Application

All you have to do is put a generous amount of honey to your face. Your eye area has to be avoided, that goes without saying.

Let it be for 10 minutes or so, and then it can easily be washed off with a little lukewarm water.

Oat Mask

Oats are a staple diet for breakfast but more than that, they also are an excellent ingredient for face masks. There are some minerals and vitamins that are found in this breakfast cereal.

Oats work very well for any skin, whether itchy, dry, or even if it gets irritated from some irritant. Acne breakouts are best avoided with the help pf oats and powdered oats that are readily available in the market form a great exfoliating mask and scrub that can make your dead skin and all your sin troubles vanish.

Ingredients for the mask

Powdered Oats- 1 tbsp
Raw honey– 1 tbsp

Preparation and Application

All you have to do is combine both raw honey and powdered oats so that it becomes a paste. Apply this paste to your face and the neck area as well. Let it be for 10 minutes or so before rinsing it with warm water, and you can pat dry your face with a clean towel after all of these packs.


Cinnamon is tree bark, but it has more than one benefit. There are just so many pluses of this wonder ingredient that one may not be able to list them all out. Cinnamon and honey make for the best DIY facial mask, and it also happens to be the easiest. Another one of my personal favorites.


Cinnamon– a pinch
Honey- 1 tablespoon

Preparation and application

It is as simple as mixing the honey and cinnamon together and then applying it all over your face. It is great to use as an antibacterial pack and also to de-tan the face.

These are all some of the basic recipes. However, you can always be experimental and try out something of your own, just like I do, so many times. The homemade masks are a great and cheap way for you to get the clear and healthy skin that you have always wanted.

These lovely DIY homemade face mask jars also make fabulous gifts for your near and dear ones. You can keep many of them ready which do not have perishable ingredients and then gift them whenever required.

It is a fact that there are some beauty and household tips which, if followed, will do wonders for your hair and skin. There is just no need to spend big bucks on spas and beauty salons when all they are doing is just minting money off of you. There are various face masks which can be used by anyone, and everyone and all that is required to is just simple ingredients from your very own kitchen.
