How to make your own face mask


Are you looking for a way to clean your face? Do you want to save some money on commercial face masks? Fortunately, there are many home remedies for acne and other skin problems. You can even make your own face mask using natural ingredients.

1. Acne mask

Acne is considered the most common skin problem in the United States. Zits develop when oil, dead skin cells, and bacteria clog pores, and acne includes blackheads, whiteheads, pimples, nodules, and cysts. The protein in egg whites, however, may help kill bacteria on the skin and help stop blemishes.


  • 2 to 3 egg whites


  1. Separate egg whites from the yolk, and place the egg whites in a bowl.
  2. Dip a cotton swab into the bowl and dab the egg whites over your face.
  3. Let the mask sit for 10 to 15 minutes.
  4. Wash off with a damp cloth and apply a moisturizer.

2. Hyperpigmentation mask

Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation refers to darkened areas of skin often due to acne, age, or sun damage.

Dermatological treatments can help reduce hyperpigmentation, but they tend to be expensive. You can save money and even out your skin tone with a DIY turmeric mask, which also lessens inflammation.


  • 1/2 tsp. turmeric powder
  • 1 to 2 tbsp. raw honey


  1. Mix all ingredients in a bowl to create a paste.
  2. Gently massage the paste over your face.
  3. Let it sit for 10 minutes, then wash off with warm water.

3. Clogged pores mask

Oatmeal and baking soda have exfoliating properties, which can remove dead skin cells and unclog pores.


  • 2 tsp. oatmeal
  • 1 tsp. baking soda


  1. Combine the oatmeal and baking soda in a bowl. Slowly add a few drops of water to create a paste.
  2. Gently massage the paste over your face and let it dry.
  3. Wash off with warm water and apply a moisturizer.

4. Oily skin mask

Oily Skin occurs when your pores produce too much sebum, a natural skin oil.

Oils can clog pores, triggering acne and inflammation. Bananas can help absorb oil on the skin, while lemons help cleanse pores.


  • 1 banana
  • 10 drops lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. extra virgin olive oil


  1. Mash the banana in a bowl. Add the lemon juice and olive oil to create a liquid paste.
  2. Apply the mask over your face. Let it sit for 15 minutes and then wash off with warm water.

5. Dry Skin Mask

A hydrating facial mask can help your skin retain moisture and alleviate dullness and itching.


  • half a cucumber
  • 2 tbsp. aloe vera gel


  1. Blend the cucumber and combine with the aloe vera gel.
  2. Gently massage the paste over your face.
  3. Let it sit for 30 minutes and then wash off with water.
