With more than enough time on my hands I want to share a few face masks that you can make at home and that are affordable. You probably have most of the ingredients in your pantry too! So when you feel like a bit of extra pampering along with your Netflix or relaxation time. Try one out and let me know how it is for you.
Ingredients listed below in the masks:
Tumeric – helps reduce acne and any resulting scars. The anti-inflammatory qualities can target your pores and calm the skin.
Plain Yoghurt – Adds moisture and brightens skin. It also fights acne.
Raw Honey – Speeds up skin cells healing process and helps fight acne as it helps balance bacteria on the skin.
Oats – contains avenanthramides, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory compounds that soothe itchy, dry and irritated skin.
Gram Flour – helps gently exfoliate flaky skin and dead cells on skin. (Find this at most spice shops.)
Rose water – it has anti-inflammatory properties that can help reduce the redness of irritated skin, get rid of acne, dermatitis and eczema. It is a great cleanser and aids in removing oil and dirt accumulated in clogged pores. (Find this at most spice shops.)
Lemon Juice – is a great antioxidant. It naturally contains vitamin C, an antioxidant that may help reduce skin damage and premature aging.
Milk powder – acts as a great cleanser. The lactic acid in it lightens and smoothens skin. It gives the new skin formation a boost.
Mix up all the ingredients in a bowl, smooth a thin layer over clean skin, and leave it on for about 10 minutes. Rinse off.
Beauty mode mask

- 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
Mix up all the ingredients in a bowl, add one layer over skin, and leave it on for about 10 minutes or till starts to dry. Rinse off. Then use a facewash and continue to moisturise there after. This is my weekly and favourite mask!
Yoghurt and Tumeric mask
- 1 teaspoon turmeric powder
- 2 tablespoons plain yogurt.
Mix up then add to your face leave for 15 minutes. Make sure to not just use tumeric on its own as it has the tendancy to stain the skin to a wierd jaunduce looking color! Rinse and then continue with usual face wash and moisturize routine.

- 1 tablespoon honey
Mix up then add to your face leave for 15 minutes. Rinse with warm water. Continue with face wash and moisturizer.
