One of my absolute favorite things to do is making things, especially things that can make you feel beautiful and relaxed. Before I decide what type of mask I’m going to make I’ll give my skin a quick, what does my skin need today. I’m going to give you some of my favorite recipes for some masks I make for a few different skin issues. Get ready to mix, relax and glow.
DIY Hydrating Facial: Since summer is coming to an end and my skin is a bit on the dry and a bit flaky side, I try and take care of the issue with my at home facials. So for dry skin I like to make a hydrating facial. This facial is easy to make and it feels so good. I call it the Milky Mask. I start with 1/4 cup of buttermilk and 2 tablespoons of plain Greek yogurt. I add 1 teaspoon of raw honey and 6 drops of rosehips oil. Mix well and with this mask, if you have the time leave it on for a few hours. Gently wash off with a soft wash cloth and warm water. There you have it, glowing, soft, hydrated skin.

DIY Papaya Glow Facial: The next facial I enjoy making is when my skin is feeling a little dull. I call this one the Papaya Peeler. Papaya has wonderful enzymes which make a gentle and effective exfoliant. My recipe for this DIY facial is 1/2 of a small ripe papaya. One tablespoon of raw honey, one egg white and 6 drops of rosehips oil. I put all the ingredients into a small blender and apply to my face. I leave this facial on until it’s pretty dry, about 30 minutes and then gently wash off with a soft wash cloth. I apply hyaluronic acid moisturizer right after this facial to lock in the moisture.
DIY Cool Cucumber Facial: And finally, this facial is incredibly soothing, it’s a wonderful facial for a hot summer day. I call this facial the Cool Cucumber. I start with 1/2 of a cucumber, peeled￼ and puréed. 1/4 cup Greek yogurt one tablespoon of raw honey. One tablespoon brown sugar. 6 drops of rosehips oil. Mix together well adding brown sugar last.
