DIY Essential Oil Face Masks

Face masks are a familiar and classic way to give your skin spa-like treatment at home. To help keep your skin healthy and looking radiant, a face mask can be just what you need — especially when the mask is made up of all-natural ingredients! With these DIY face mask recipes, you can give your skin the treatment it needs without paying the spa price. Just grab the ingredients from your cupboards or local grocery store, and your skin will be thanking you in no time! 

Benefits of Face Masks

We all may subconsciously know that face masks are good for our skin, but what do they really do? Here are just some of the many ways that face masks can benefit your facial skin: 

Face Mask Recipes

Note: Before using any face mask, it is important that you wash your face and remove any makeup. Having a clean face allows the ingredients in the mask to penetrate deeper into the skin, providing you with greater results. 

Nourishing Honey and Turmeric Face Mask

Great for nourishing your skin, reducing redness or irritation, and fighting acne. 

Combine all ingredients in a small bowl, and mix well. Apply an even layer of the mask mixture to your face, avoiding the mouth and eyes. Leave the mask on for 15-20 minutes. Rinse off with warm water, pat dry, and apply your favorite moisturizer. 

Anti-Aging Clay Face Mask 

This mask is great for fighting signs of aging and enhancing your skin’s natural glow. 

Mix all ingredients together in a small bowl until a paste forms. Add a few drops of water or milk if it is too thick, or add extra clay or oatmeal to make it thicker. You want your paste to be spreadable but not liquidy. Apply to the face, avoiding the eyes and mouth. Leave the mask on for about 15 minutes, or until it dries. Gently wash off with lukewarm water and a washcloth. Apply moisturizer. 

Acne-Fighting Face Masks

Do you experience frequent breakouts? These face masks can help reduce breakouts and soothe sore pimples. 

Clay Mask for Acne

Combine all ingredients together in a small bowl until a paste forms. Add a few drops of water as needed until your paste is thick yet spreadable. Apply to the face in an even layer, avoiding the mouth and eyes. Let the mask sit for 10-15 minutes, then gently rinse off with warm water. Apply moisturizer. 

Melaleuca Face Mask for Acne 

Combine both ingredients in a small bowl, and mix well. Apply the mask to a slightly dampened face, avoiding the mouth and eyes. Leave the mask on for 15 minutes, then gently rinse off with lukewarm water. Follow with your favorite toner and moisturizer. 

Super Hydrating Face Mask

This mask is great for adding and keeping hydration for those who have a dry skin type. 

Mix all ingredients together in a small bowl. Spread the mask onto your face and neck. Let the mask sit for 15 minutes, then gently wash it off with warm water. Apply moisturizer. 

Shine-Stopper Face Mask 

If you have oily skin, this mask is great for taking away the extra shine without drying out your skin. 

Combine all ingredients in a small bowl, and mix well. Apply an even layer of the mask to your face, avoiding the eyes and mouth. Leave the mask on for 10-15 minutes. Rinse off with warm water, and apply moisturizer. Use this mask up to two times daily for best results. Store any remaining mask in an air-tight container for 15-20 days. 

Even Tones Face Mask

This face mask is great for evening out your skin tone while also enhancing your natural glow. 

Mix the coconut oil and honey together in a small bowl. Add the Lemon oil, and mix to combine. Apply the mask evenly on the face, and let it sit for 15 minutes. Rinse off with warm water, and apply moisturizer. 

Smooth Skin Face Mask 

Remove dead skin, reduce the appearance of blemishes, and get naturally smoother skin with this great face mask! 

Whisk all ingredients together in a small bowl until the mixture is frothy. Apply the mask to your face, avoiding the eyes and mouth. Let it sit for 15-20 minutes, or until the mask is dry. Slowly and gently peel the mask off of your face. Wash your face with warm water, and apply moisturizer. 

*Because this mask uses Lemon oil, a photosensitive oil, we recommend using this mask at night. If you use this in the morning, avoid direct sunlight for 12 hours following use.
