Face masks are the ultimate way to treat your skin when it’s in dire need of a pick-me-up. The best way to ensure your skin is getting everything it needs (and none of the nasty stuff it doesn’t) is by making your own face masks. These fun, DIY face masks are super easy to make and even easier to switch up and personalize according to how your skin is feeling on any particular day. Read on to find the one that’s perfect for you!
Drier skin-types in need of a deep cleanse are going to want to cut Indian Healing Clay with a little bit of Grapeseed Oil. Prepare your Indian Healing Clay face mask as you normally would: equal parts clay and ACV or water, then add in 2-3 tablespoons of Grapeseed Oil. We opt for Grapeseed here because of its high vitamin E content, which makes for a creamier, extra hydrating mask.
If your skin leans more towards the dry, reactive side of the spectrum, you’re going to want to prime your skin with our soothing (and redness reducing) Rose Water Facial Mist. Just mist your face until it’s damp before applying the face mask. Applying a thin layer of the mask to damp skin will help maintain your skin’s moisture levels, while preventing any redness or dryness after the fact. Leave the mask on for no more than 15 minutes, then rinse off and mist again with the rose water.
Pore purifying at its best, you can’t go wrong with our Indian Healing Clay when your skin is feeling dull and congested. When mixed with ACV, Bentonite Clay exfoliates away dead skin cells and cleanses skin, and the exfoliating benefits are doubled as you wipe it off with a damp cloth. Adding a tablespoon of honey gives your mask an antioxidant boost while calming and moisturizing the skin – giving you that “I-just-slept-for-12-hours” glow.
Oilier skin types are going to want to boost the purifying power of their face masks to treat blemishes and reduce oiliness. To do this, we recommend bringing Tea Tree Oil into the mix by adding 2-3 drops to your Indian Healing Clay + ACV face mask. The Tea Tree Oil’s antibacterial properties will help reduce existing blemishes and prevent new ones from forming. Once you’ve removed your mask after 15 minutes, replenish your skin with Jojoba Oil to lightly hydrate skin and keep your oil levels in check.
