Homemade Face Masks For Every Skin Type

Face Masks

We here in the One4all HQ are obsessed with cleansers, masks and exfoliants, and will spend large chunks of our pay check on all the latest skincare must-haves. However, we’ve recently discovered the power of facial products you can make at home. From oily to dry, rough, and dull, we’ve got recipes for magical homemade beauty treatments for every skin type.

Acne-prone skin

If you’re looking to reduce acne and its damage to your skin, this spicy mask is the perfect choice for you.

The mask

Simply mix a tablespoon of manuka honey, a tablespoon of turmeric powder, and half a teaspoon of sea salt in a bowl before applying to your skin. Leave on your skin for about 15 minutes before rinsing with warm water.

Why it works

  • Manuka honey draws out bacteria from your pores, carefully treating and improving acne-prone areas.
  • The very colourful and very antioxidant rich turmeric has anti-inflammatory properties and helps soothe angry skin with red spots. 
  • Sea salt cleanses your pores, removing excess oils and reducing acne.

Dry skin

Whether its from those cold, winter days or being exposed to household skin irritants like certain cleaning products, dry skin can be very uncomfortable. If you’re looking to add more moisture to your skin, this mask rich in fatty acids will do the trick.

The mask

Mix an avocado, two tablespoons of natural yogurt, a tablespoon of olive oil, and a tablespoon of honey. Using a clean foundation brush, gently apply the mixture to your face. Allow your skin to absorb this mix of goodness for 20 minutes before washing off with warm water.

Why it works

  • Avocado and olive oil are full of omega fatty acids which help seal cracks between skin cells.
  • Honey and yoghurt are moisture masters, helping your skin feel plump and hydrated.

Oily skin

If you’re looking for a way to minimise the appearance of pores and reduce the amount of excess oils they produce without paying a small fortune on designer skincare, this zesty natural serum will be your skin saviour.

The mask

Whisk one-egg white, a tablespoon of honey and a squeeze of lemon juice. Apply the mixture to your skin and let your pores drink it up.

Why it works

  • The protein in the egg white helps to tighten your skin, reducing your pore’s visibility.
  • The lemon juice has antibacterial properties which cleanses pores, helping to reduce acne.

Dull or rough skin

If you’re searching for the perfect product to brighten up dull or tired looking skin, this booster recipe is the remedy you’ve been waiting for.

The mask

Mix two spoons of natural yoghurt, a scoop of porridge oats, a tablespoon of honey, and a squeeze of lemon juice together in a bowl. Apply to your face and keep on until it dries. Wash away with warm water.

Why it works

  • Yoghurt contains lactic acid, a gentle exfoliation that helps create a natural glow and reduces the appearance of common signs of ageing, including fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Porridge oats is also an exfoliant, removing dead skin cells, allowing the young cells to shine through,
  • The wonder fruit lemon is full of nutrients and antioxidants and works to tackle dark spots and pigmentation.
