As the weather turns decidedly autumnal, our thoughts have started to turn to pampering sessions to keep our skin in top condition and protected from the elements.
Do It Yourself (DIY) facemasks are extremely popular around this time of year. They’re easy to make and give that Instagram glow at next to no cost.
Half the fun of a DIY facemask is the actual rifling through your cupboards looking for just the right ingredients to go in your home-made mask. The great thing about “doing it yourself” is that you know everything that is going into it.
My favourite ingredients to use are things like honey or turmeric to give you a glow, egg white to minimise pores, avocado to hydrate your skin or lemon to even and brighten your skin tone. It’s a great way to relax. To create your own facemask, simply mix all of the ingredients you’ve chosen in a mixing bowl.
My ‘recipe’ for an instant glow is to mix honey, turmeric and a few drops of lemon in a bowl, then smear it all over your face for about 30 minutes. Finally, wash it off and you will immediately see and feel a difference in your skin for almost no money at all!
Although making your own face mask from scratch can be fun and creative, if you’re in a hurry, you can try out the excellent DIY facemask options available.
