Banana, Sour Cream & Honey Facial Mask

The banana in this recipe acts as an astringent and the honey acts as a conditioner. The sour cream not only binds the two, but it soothes the skin.

  • 1/2 Banana
  • 2 tbsp. Sour Cream
  • 1 tbsp. Honey

Mash the banana, then stir in the honey and sour cream.

Brewer’s Yeast & Yogurt Facial Mask

This recipe is perfect if you have oily skin. The ingredients deep clean without over-drying the skin.

  • 1/3 c. Yogurt
  • 1 tsp. Brewer’s Yeast

Combine the yogurt and yeast to create a thin paste. Apply only to the T-zone (forehead, nose, and chin).

Green Clay Facial Mask

This one is the priciest facial make to make at home, but after the initial investment, it’s still inexpensive per mask. You can probably find the ingredients at your local health food store, but I’ve linked them to Amazon if you need to buy them online.

Combine the green clay, apricot oil, and enough warm water to make a spreadable paste. Add the palmarosa and work the mixture with your fingers until it’s well incorporated. Apply to the skin. You will feel it begin to tighten as it dries.

Honey Facial Mask

This is my favorite homemade facial mask. It takes several ingredients, but you can make it with your breakfast leftovers.

  • 2/3 c. Quick Oats
  • 1/2 c. Hot Water
  • 2 tbsp. Plain Yogurt
  • 2 tbsp. Honey
  • 1 Egg White
  • 1/2 Apple (cored with the peel on)

Stir oats into the hot water until they are smooth. Let it stand for 5 minutes so it thickens. Combine apple, yogurt, honey, and egg white in a blender or food processor until blended. Add the oatmeal and blend for another 20 seconds.

Strawberry Yogurt Facial Mask

This mask smells and feels great. Do not use this recipe if you have an allergy to strawberries or almonds.

  • 1 handful of Ripe Strawberries
  • 2 tbsp. Yogurt
  • 1 tbsp. Ground Almonds

Mash the strawberries and almonds together. Add the yogurt until it forms a spreadable paste.

Yogurt & Oatmeal Facial Mask

This recipe deep cleans and is perfect for all skin types. When I’m looking for a quick-to-assemble mask, this is my first choice. If this is your first facial mask at home, it’s a nice option.

  • 1 tbsp. Oatmeal (finely ground)
  • 1 tbsp. Yogurt
  • 1/2 tsp. Honey

Simply mix and use. It’s really that easy!

Applying Your Mask

For best results, use the mask of your choice once a week. Start with a clean face. Apply the mask with a cotton ball or clean fingertips in a circular motion. Avoid your hairline and eyes. Leave the mask in place for 15 to 30 minutes (start with 15 when trying a new mask for the first time). When the time is up, wash away the mask with warm water. Splash your face with cool water and pat dry with a towel.

    I love these. I have not had a facial in a long time. I love clay, I think I will try that one. Although, the banana, sour cream, and honey sounds really amazing too and so good for skin. I will just have to try them both. Thanks for the great recipes!
