During the last year, my daughters and I have had several at-home spa days. We usually do a homemade facemask and our nails. Occasionally we add in hair treatments. We have a lot of fun doing at-home spa days, save money, and feel rejuvenated afterward.
Today I want to share a few of our favorite homemade facial mask recipes with you. Most of the ingredients are things people usually have on hand.
These homemade facial masks can be messy. I suggest wearing a top you aren’t concerned about ruining. I would also have a towel close by.
Fruit & Veggie Facial Mask
The Fruit & Veggie Facial Mask is great for helping minimize fine lines and wrinkles. It also helps moisturize dry skin.
1/2 of a ripe avocado
1/2 of a ripe banana
1 TBS oil (coconut, olive, or avocado)
To make the Fruit & Veggie Facial Mask, simply combine the ingredients in a glass or plastic bowl until it has a smooth texture. Once they are blended, apply to your face and allow them to rest for 10-15 minutes. Then wash with a cool damp towel. Gently pat dry.
Tumeric & Oat Facial Mask
The Tumeric & Oat Facial Mask is great for exfoliating and hydrating dry skin. It also helps reduce redness, inflammation, and breakouts.
3 TBS oat flour
1 TBS honey
1/2 tsp ground turmeric
To make the Tumeric & Oat facial mask, mix the ingredients in a bowl (non-metal) until well blended then brush on your face. Allow the mask to stay on for 15-20 minutes. Then wash with a cool damp towel. Gently pat dry.
Occasionally the turmeric will leave a subtle yellow tinge on your skin. This can easily be washed off with your normal skin cleanser and/or an exfoliator.
Cucumber & Yogurt Facial Mask
The Cucumber & Yogurt Facial Mask can help soothe irritated skin, promote healing, and brighten your completion.
2-3 inches of a cucumber
1 TBS Greek yogurt
1 TBS aloe vera
2 TBS oats
To make the Cucumber & Yogurt Facial Mask, blend all ingredients until smooth. Apply the mix to your face and let the mask rest for about 20-30 minutes. Then wash with a cool damp towel. Gently pat dry.
Having an at-home spa day is a lot of fun. The three facial mask recipes I shared are both easy and inexpensive to make.
Do you have at-home spa days? What do you do for them?
Hello, my name is Laurie. I have been married to my husband for 14 years. We have two young daughters, ages 11 and 13 years old. My family and I live in Oregon so that means we are just minutes from the beach, mountains, and desert. We love it here and try to spend as much time outdoors playing as we can. When we aren’t outside playing, I enjoy reading, gardening, refinishing furniture, and other crafts.
