The honey avocado face mask

If your skin is in desperate need of some hydration, then this face mask is definitely for you. For this DIY recipe, you’ll need two teaspoons of honey, two tablespoons of fresh avocado, two tablespoons of olive oil, and one mashed mango. Together, this combination of fruit, oil, and a whole load of vitamins should plow your skin with fatty acids and vitamin C. As if that wasn’t cool enough, they will also add the anti-inflammatory processes within your skin, which should calm any skin that is prone to redness or sore patches. Simply leave this on for 15 minutes and then gently wipe it off.

The lemon yogurt face mask

If you don’t want to go to the store and buy ingredients you’ll never use again to make your face mask, then never fear! The lemon yogurt face mask only uses two ingredients, and there’s a high chance you have them both in your home. Yes, all you need is two tablespoons of yogurt and a small squirt of lemon juice. Leave this on your face for around 20 minutes, and all of the acids and cultures in these ingredients should detoxify your skin and leave it looking plump, smooth, and hydrated as anything.

The pumpkin face mask

Pumpkins aren’t just for Halloween, because they also team up with a few other ingredients to make an awesome face mask! All you need to make this face mask is one tablespoon of canned or cooked pumpkin, one teaspoon of honey, and one teaspoon of topical vitamin E. Once you’ve mixed this all up into a mask-like consistency, you just slather it on your face and leave it on for around 15 minutes. The mask should be cooling and refreshing, but all of the enzymes within this mixture should also leave your face looking plump, hydrated, and fresh.
