DIY Face Masks You Can Make With Ingredients From Your Pantry

As the days start to blend together, we could use a few things to help us stay creative during this time, so here are some quick and easy recipes to help you concoct the mask of your dreams. Whether you want to moisturize your dry skin or want to make the most of the extra downtime, these DIY masks will do it all and the best part? For most of these masks, all you have to do is turn to your pantry or refrigerator in order to get things started!

Turmeric Face Mask

Sometimes we need an anti-inflammatory face mask, and this DIY miracle mixture does just that. All you have to do is mix the ingredients together in a bowl, then lather it on your face. Leave mask on for 10 minutes then rinse off. It is that simple and chances are you have most of these ingredients at home. This mask is rich in antioxidants and is a remedy for acne, dry skin, wrinkles, and dark circles. Here is the recipe:

– 1/2 teaspoon of turmeric

– 1/2 teaspoon of honey

– 1-2 tablespoons of yogurt

Brightening Mask

If you have some avocados lying around, you are already a third of the way there with this mask. Mix the avocado with honey and yogurt and you have got yourself a brightening mask. Apply and leave on for 15-20 minutes then rinse off. This mask is great when you are looking for that gorgeous glow. Here is the recipe:

– 1 avocado

– 1 teaspoon of honey

– 1 tablespoon of yogurt

Blueberry Mask

Blueberries make for a killer face mask ingredient. The deep blue color is the result of powerful antioxidants that protect the skin against harmful free radicals. In addition, blueberries are packed with vitamin C, explaining why this super-fruit is good for the body inside and out. Once the ingredients are mixed together, leave the mask on for 20 minutes, and then wipe your face clean with warm water. Plus, the honey’s antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties work hard to defeat acne-causing bacteria. Here is the recipe:

– 1/3 cup of blueberries

– 2 tablespoons of yogurt

– 1 tablespoon of rice flour

– 1 teaspoon of honey

Nutrient Mask

For this mask, Manuka honey is the main ingredient. You can then add mix-ins of tocotrienols (tocotrienols are perfect if you live in a place that’s lacking in vitamin D), algae powder (algae powder works hard at mineralizing and alkalizing your skin), Shea butter (Shea butter relieves parched skin), or more matcha (matcha works to reduce inflammation and even out your skin tone). Whatever way you mix it, leave on for 10 minutes, rinse with warm water then moisturize. Here is the recipe:

– 2 tablespoons of Manuka honey

– 1 teaspoon of brewed green tea or matcha (chamomile for sensitive skin)

– 1 tablespoon of tocotrienols

– 1 teaspoon of algae powder

– 1/2 teaspoons of Shea butter

– Additional matcha
