Hi Petals,

As a sequel to my Why Use a Face Mask? from last week I thought I would do a DIY face masks post. Face masks are a great tool to help us deep clean our face, but some of them can be fairly pricey. I have managed to compile four easy all natural face masks we can all make at home - so there are no more excuses ladies :).
With masks made out of all natural ingredients they obviously have a sell by date. Usually we are advised to throw them out after anywhere between 1 and 2 weeks - so please ensure to keep this in mind.

Honey, Almond Oil, Milk Powder & Lemon Juice Facial Mask

Mix these ingredients together for a great mask to help with treating any scarring you may have. You can even pop this in your fridge and this baby will last for about one week.
Almond oil helps prevent dryness and irritation of the skin. Almond oil contains vitamins A, E and D. Almond oil is great for moisturising, anti-inflammation, removing dark circles and reducing wrinkles (this may just become my new best friend).
Some face masks containing milk powder have been known to reduce excessive pigmentation, acne, and facial dryness.
Lemon juice helps with the reduction of scars and sun spots whilst also functioning as a fantastic natural exfoliant.

Honey & Blueberry Facial Mask

 Mix some honey with blueberry yoghurt in equal quantities until it looks like a fine paste. Pop on your face and allow it to sit for 15 minutes.  Rinse off with cold water resulting in a lovely, nourished, baby smooth face.
Blueberries are loaded with vitamin C, E, antioxidants, minerals, essential fatty acids and numerous other nutrients. Berries are often used for their anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. 

Egg Yolk & Honey Facial Mask

 Take one teaspoon of honey, one egg yolk, one teaspoon almond oil and one teaspoon of yoghurt. Mix this concoction into a fine paste and apply to your face and neck. This mask will leave your skin feeling lovely and soft as well as super supple.
Egg yolks are great for dealing with any acne problems you may be facing and for all of you out there with dry sensitive skin, just like me, egg yolks are great!!! Unlike other acne treatments egg yolks are not overly harsh on the skin.

Rosewater & Honey Facial Mask

Take three spoonfuls of rose water and a quarter cup of honey and leave on the skin for about 15 minutes. This wonderfully scented mask will leave you with lovely, supple skin.
Rosewater is one of the worlds oldest skin care products. It contains anti-inflammatory properties, it works wonders as a cleanser and with it's astringent like properties allows it to be used after a spa facial to help close up our pores. 

Honey & Milk 

Mixing honey and milk together is great for smoothing out fine lines and lightening the skin and to make it better these are super cheap to buy and most of us will have it lying around the house :).
Honey is wonderful for our skin. It has antibacterial properties, which help fight pimples and acne. It also helps reduce any infections quite fast. It is a wonderful cleanser as it soaks up any impurities, hence why it is listed in every face mask listed above.
