DIY face masks are a fun and affordable way to show your skin some extra love. Whether you're looking for deep exfoliation or a healthy glow, creating a mask that aligns with your facial needs can be done with just a few ingredients. These eight masks are among our favorites.


1. Plain Old Oatmeal

Packed with a natural exfoliant called saponin, oatmeal is known for removing dead skin cells. They have anti-inflammatory properties and contain antioxidants that work to fix dry spots. Oatmeal is also known to help treat acne as it can collect excess oil on the skin.

Ingredients

  • Oats

  • Water

Directions

  1. Cook the oats per the instructions on the container.

  2. Allow the oats to cool overnight in the refrigerator.

  3. Apply the oats to clean skin and let it sit for 15-20 minutes.

To take it a step further, you can add a few drops of coconut oil for an added boost of antioxidants, protection, and other benefits.
