8 DIY Face Masks To Try This Weekend Plus Size Fashion

Instead of going out and splurging on expensive face masks, why not try a little DIY at home? Ingredients such as honey, yoghurt, papaya and avocado can be purchased at any supermarket, yet they can also be used in your skincare routine. Check out these simple face mask recipes below:



Yoghurt and honey face mask


Sounds good enough to eat! Take half a cup of yoghurt and add two tablespoons of honey, then mix well and apply to your face and neck. Wash off after 20 minutes. This nourishing combination will have your skin feeling fresh, plump and hydrated.


Egg white face mask


Egg whites are full of protein, and many believe this protein can have skin-tightening effects as well as absorbing excess oil from the skin. Try mixing egg whites with half a lemon, stirring until frothy. Apply a thin layer to the face and rinse off after 10 minutes. This mask is said to be great for oily skin types!



Apple cider vinegar face mask


Said to be acne-fighting, this natural face mask will leave you blemish-free and fabulous. Just ensure you do a test patch on your skin to make sure you don’t have any adverse reactions as apple cider vinegar (ACV) is a strongly concentrated product. Combine 1 teaspoon of ACV and baking soda, as well as 2 teaspoons of raw honey. Apply and leave for 10-15 minutes before rinsing off.



Papaya face mask


Rejuvenating and gorgeously scented, this mask is as soothing as it gets. Mash up 2 tablespoons of fresh papaya without seeds. Then add a teaspoon of each: raw honey, lemon juice and coconut oil. Leave 10-15 minutes.



Avocado milk face mask


Reap the benefits of superfoods through your skin, too! Avocado hydrates and moisturises, containing a large amount of vitamin E, healthy fat and natural oils. It also has anti inflammatory benefits and anti aging properties. Method on Bellatory here.


Turmeric face mask

Tumeric is the perfect natural ingredient for anti-inflammatory and brightening properties. Create your mask using a teaspoon of tumeric and a tablespoon of honey, creating this beautifully bright orange blend! Method here.



Mustard face mask

Sounds weird, but did you know that mustard seeds contain bacteria-fighting sulphur? This mask is perfect for skin sensitivity, acne and inflammation. Pat your face with mild yellow mustard, then leave for 15 minutes and rinse. Make sure you do a test patch first.


Lemon face mask

Lemon contains two types of hydroxy acid - AHAs and BHAs - which helps to remove dead skin cells and clear up blackheads. Mix up your homemade mask with juice from one lemon and a quarter cup of olive oil. Wait for 15 minutes before washing off.
