Mariam Youssef - Feb 2022

Do you have problems with acne, oily skin, wrinkles, blemishes, or age spots? Having great skin is not just a matter of genes; it also involves maintaining a healthy diet and a good skincare routine that includes cleansing, exfoliating, and moisturizing your face. In addition to these great steps, you will also need weekly masks to apply to your skin to address specific problems in your skin. That said, let’s jump into 5 awesome homemade recipes for different skin conditions.

For starters, you have to know that masks need to be applied once or twice maximum per week and it needs to be applied after the toner and before the serum.

Acne Mask

Most teens and some adults face big acne problems, which manage to shake their self-confidence and overall appearance. You’ll be surprised to know that egg whites can help to kill bacteria on the skin and stop blemishes.

Ingredients:

  • 2-3 eggs

Instructions:

  • Separate the egg whites from the yolks and place the egg whites in a bowl.
  • Dip a cotton pad in the bowl and dab the egg whites on your face.
  • Leave the mask on for 10-15 minutes.
  • Rinse with a damp cloth and apply your moisturizer.

Hyperpigmentation Mask

Hyperpigmentation often refers to areas of dark skin due to acne, age, or sunburn damage. Dermatological treatments can help reduce hyperpigmentation; however, they tend to be costly. DIY turmeric masks that can also reduce inflammation can save you money and even out your skin tone.

Ingredients:

  • ½ tsp. turmeric powder
  • 1-2 tbsp. raw honey

Instructions:

  • Mix the two ingredients in a bowl to create a paste.
  • Massage the paste gently over your face.
  • Allow it to sit for 10 minutes, then wash off with warm water.

Clogged Pores Mask

Using oatmeal and baking soda on your face can remove dead skin cells and unclog pores thanks to their exfoliating properties.

Ingredients:

  • 2 tsp. oatmeal
  • 1 tsp. baking soda

Instructions:

  • Mix the oatmeal and baking soda in a bowl and slowly add a few drops of water to create a paste.
  • Massage the paste over your face gently and let it dry.
  • Wash off with warm water and follow with a moisturizer.

Oily Skin Mask

When your skin produces too much sebum (a natural skin oil), it can clog your pores, triggering acne and inflammation. Luckily, bananas help to absorb excess oil on the skin, while lemons help cleanse pores.

Ingredients:

  • 1 banana
  • 10 drops lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. extra virgin olive oil

 

Instructions:

  • Mash the banana in a bowl using a fork, then add the lemon juice and olive oil to create a liquid paste.
  • Apply the mask over your face. Let it sit for 15 minutes and then wash off with warm water.

N.B: If you have sensitive skin, you can replace the lemon juice with rose water.

Dry Skin Mask

Using a hydrating facial mask helps your skin to retain moisture and alleviate itching and dullness.

Ingredients:

  • Half a cucumber
  • 2 tbsp. aloe vera gel

Instructions:

  • Use a blender to blend the cucumber with the aloe vera gel.
  • Gently massage the paste over your face.
  • Let it sit for 30 minutes and then wash off with warm water.
