Today I’ve prepared some of my favourite at home beauty tips for you.

Taking care of your face and your skin is so important these days due to all the pollution that surrounds cities and UV rays. Therefore, I’ve come up with 5 face masks you can make at home. I must admit I’ve tried most of them and for me, they made wonders.

I’ve always enjoyed sheet face masks and the miracles they do, but from time to time it’s good for our skin to receive something more natural. All the recipes contain natural ingredients, therefore even if you try the mask and it doesn’t work that well for you, there is no harm!

Get your ingredients ready and let’s do an amazing facial treatment at home 😉

1. Cucumber and Aloe Vera Hydrating Face Mask


– Cucumber

– Aloe Vera gel/serum


1. Cut half of your cucumber into small slices

2. Mix them in a blender until their consistency becomes watery

3. Add two tablespoons of the aloe vera gel and blend again

How to apply?

Once you finished the mask itself, apply it evenly on your face and keep it on for about fifteen minutes to half an hour. Then, rise it off with water until your face is completely clean. Dry your face with a smooth towel and you’re hydrated!

The recipe is great considering that the cucumber has cooling properties and that the aloe vera works incredibly well in healing your skin and in the anti-ageing process.

2. Strawberry and Yogurt Hydrating Face Mask


– 3 Strawberries

– Greek Yogurt

– Honey


1. Blend the three strawberries with a mixer until their consistency is smooth enough

2. Add two tablespoons of greek yogurt and mix

3. Add one tablespoon of honey and mix

How to apply?

After you’ve finished preparing the mask, apply it evenly to your face. The amount of time you leave it on for depends on how dry your skin actually is. Leave it on for ten minutes if your skin is dry and fifteen if your skin is oily.

This mask is has strawberries which contain vitamins and antioxidants and yogurt which is great because it exfoliates the dry skin.

3. Honey and Avocado Hydrating Face Mask


– 1/4 of an avocado

– 2 tablespoons of honey

– A half of a tablespoon of cider vinegar


1. Add all of the three elements in a bowl and mix them until the consistency of the masks becomes smooth.

How to apply?

One of my at home beauty tips is to apply a thin layer of this mask to your clean skin. Let it on for about 10 minutes and the rinse it off with warm water. For the mask to provide visible effects you should try at least two times a month.

This masks composition is thorough considering that the avocado is great for hydration, the honey is a cleanser and the cider vinegar is a toner.

4. Pumpkin Hydrating Face Mask


– 2 and a half tablespoons of pumpkin purée

– 1 tablespoon of honey

– 1 and a half tablespoons of lemon juice


1. Add the pumpkin purée in a bowl

2. Add one tablespoon of honey and mix them together

3. Add one and a half tablespoons of lemon juice and mix until all the ingredients are blended together

How to apply?

Your face should be clean and dried when you apply the mask on. You can use your fingers or a special brush, but make sure to apply it evenly. Let it sit on your face for about ten minutes then you can rinse it off with some warm water.

The pumpkin contains lots of fruit enzymes and will help in removing the dry cells off your skin. The honey is a healing ‘tool’ and the lemon juice contains antibacterial agents and Vitamin C.

5. Avocado and Banana Hydrating Face Mask


– 1/4 of an avocado

– 1/3 of a banana

– Honey


1. Add the avocado and blend it until it becomes smooth

2. Add the banana and blend until the consistency of the mask is creamy

3. Add the honey and mix the ingredients one last time

How to apply?

Another one of my at home beauty tips is to apply this mask also as a thin layer due to its creamy consistency. Leave it on for about ten to fifteen minutes the rinse it off with warm water.

This face masks is one of my favourites due to its nourishing and hydrating properties. The avocado is an amazing healer and great as an anti-wrinkle product. The banana helps with moisturising the skin and the honey reduces inflammation and it’s high in antioxidants.

All things considered, enjoy a glass of wine and some time for yourself while keeping all these great DYI face masks on. Once you wash them off I bet you will probably have a much more hydrated skin and a better mood.

Which is YOUR favourite home made face mask?

With love,
