Budget Friendly DIY Face Masks

Even though we might love to treat ourselves to a fancy salon facial, there are plenty of budget-friendly DIY face mask recipes out there! A face mask can help you feel as if you’ve got your whole life together, and it’s a great way to relax and practice some self-care. Believe it or not, ingredients found around your home can be a great way to make a face mask. For example, yogurt has exfoliating properties, honey is great for busting spot-causing bacteria, and cocoa powder is a brilliant glow-booster!


Budget-friendly DIY Face Mask Ideas 


For dry skin:

Turmeric and Yogurt Mask 



  • 1 teaspoon of turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon of honey
  • 1 tablespoon of Greek yogurt


Mix all the ingredients into a bowl and use your hands or cosmetic spatula to apply the mask to your face. Allow 20 minutes for the ingredients to seep through your skin.


Yogurt and honey prevent acne and add a nice glow to your face, and turmeric helps to reduce skin inflammation and redness.


Banana and Honey Mask


  • 1/2 ripe banana
  • 1 teaspoon of honey
  • 1 tablespoon of baking soda


Mash the banana and mix in your honey and baking soda. When they are all well mixed, gently apply them to your face. To begin with, the mask might feel runny, but within a few minutes, it will dry. Give 10 minutes for the mask to sit before washing it off.


Banana has many anti-inflammatory properties and helps to soothe your skin. Honey and baking soda help with the treatments of pimples and breakouts.


For oily skin: 


Fresh Aloe Vera Mask 




  • 1 egg white
  • 2 tablespoon fresh aloe (or, a pinch of aloe vera gel)


If you have fresh aloe, peel the clear jelly-looking section and mix it with the egg white. Apply the mixture to your face with a cosmetic spoon. Before rinsing off, let it sit for 10 minutes.


Aloe Vera helps to calm and hydrate your skin, and egg whites absorb excess oil.

Mojito Mask 



  • 1 egg white
  • Cucumber
  • Mint leaves


Blend up your ingredients until it’s smooth and put in the fridge for approximately 10 minutes. Apply the mixture to your face with a cosmetic spoon or your fingers. Give it 15 minutes to soak into your skin before washing off.


Egg whites eliminate excess oil, and mint and cucumber pump vitamin C and antioxidants into your skin.


For Combination Skin:

Anti-blemish Milk Mask


  • 2 tablespoons of honey
  • 2 tablespoons of nutmeg
  • 2 teaspoons of milk

Mix all the ingredients and use a cosmetic sponge or brush to apply the mixture to your face. This mask’s consistency is a bit watery. Leave it for 10-15 minutes before washing off.


Honey milk kills off bacteria and prevents future pimples, while nutmeg acts as a soothing exfoliator for all types of skin.


Chocolate Cake Mask 




  • 1/2 cup of cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons of oats
  • 4 tablespoons of cream (dairy)
  • 1/4 cup of honey


Mix all the ingredients in a bowl until it looks like a chocolate cake mixture. Then, apply it to your face with a cosmetic spoon. Let it soak into your skin for 10 minutes before rinsing off.


The antioxidants in cocoa powder fight off free radicals that can lead to early wrinkles, and honey and oats work as a team to improve the risk of acne.
