10264850677?profile=RESIZE_400xSpring is here, and the masks are coming off. If you’re like me, you’re recovering from “maskne,” but you might be worried about the single-use packaging and chemical additives that come with many skincare products. Fear not! Consider these face mask recipes to give you some fun and simple DIY skincare recipes to try at home with minimal waste! 

  1. Use orange peels to get glowy, moisturized skin and protect from skin damage. What you’ll need: oatmeal, orange, honey, yogurt
  2. Relieve dryness with an oatmeal face mask! These are usually recommended for those with sensitive skin! Check out this site for a wide range of oatmeal skincare recipes and see what works for you!
  3. Have irritated or dry skin? Whip together some aloe vera and honey! The main ingredients include raw honey and aloe vera leaf, both of which are known to soothe and moisturize skin.
  4. Spice things up with turmeric! Turmeric provides antioxidants and anti-inflammatory agents to the skin. The main ingredients include turmeric, honey, greek yogurt, apple cider vinegar.
  5. Cocoa powder can be a great ingredient in face masks for its protection against UV rays and increases blood flow within the skin. Consider skincare recipes that generally have milk or yogurt and research recipes using vegan-friendly alternatives, like almond milk or coconut milk.

Selfcare and beauty products don’t have to come at the cost of your wallet or the environment. This spring get creative with your skincare and challenge yourself to use as many organic ingredients as you can! As always, do research regarding your own skin type before trying a face mask recipe, and make sure you aren’t allergic to any of the ingredients.
