Take a minute and try these do it yourself face masks that you can make at home!

Brightening & Tightening Mask


Egg whites, honey, and lemon juice are DIY face-mask essentials, and for good reason. Lemon juice helps to lighten dark spots and scars, egg whites tighten skin and shrink pores, and honey helps retain moisture and heal skin. This mask from The Kitchen McCabe combines all of those qualities into one simple mask. You’ll need:

  • 1 egg white
  • 1/2 tablespoon raw honey
  • 1/2 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • Small brush

Combine the ingredients in a deep bowl, and whisk until foamy. Then, using a small brush, spread the mixture over your clean face. Make sure to avoid the eye area. Let the mask sit for about 30 minutes or until it has completely dried. Then rinse off the mask with warm water and a washcloth. Splash with cold water, and gently pat dry.

Edible “Mud” Mask


This “mud” mask isn’t exactly made of mud but works nonetheless. Combining the skin-care benefits of Greek yogurt, honey, cocoa, buttermilk, banana, and lemon juice, this mud mask from Essentially Eclectic will leave your skin feeling exactly the same as any store-bought mask. You’ll need:

  • 2–3 tablespoons Greek yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon buttermilk
  • 1/4–1/2 of a banana, mashed
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice

Note: This recipe makes enough for 3 to 5 masks.

Mix all the ingredients in a blender or food processor until the mixture is thick enough that it will not run down your face. Apply a layer to your face, and let it sit for 20 to 30 minutes. Rinse the mask away with cool water, and splash with cold water to close up your pores.

Overnight Oats and Honey Mask


Safe for all skin types, this convenient oat-and-honey mask from Free Peopleis perfect for moisturizing your dry skin or smoothing rough skin. Plus, it’s so easy to make. You’ll need:

  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon oats

Mix equal parts honey and oats together until they form a thick paste. Then apply evenly to your face while gently scrubbing in a circular motion. Next, go to sleep! In the morning, rinse away the mask with warm water to reveal smoother, moisturized skin.

Invigorating Coffee Mask


Beauty companies often use caffeine in their products to brighten and tighten skin. But you don’t need an expensive product to get the same effects. This mask from But First Coffee contains coffee grounds which have enough caffeic acid to increase your skin’s collagen production and decrease inflammation. You’ll need:

  • Coconut oil
  • Used coffee grounds

Start with room-temperature coconut oil, and blend it until it has the consistency of frosting. Mix in equal parts used coffee grounds. Gently rub the mask onto your skin in small circular motions. Let the mask sit for 5 to 10 minutes before rinsing with warm water.

After-Sun Mask


Beauty expert Julie Ricevuto of YouBeauty has the perfect DIY solution to cool and soothe a sunburned face. Her mask has anti-inflammatory properties, combating UV damage and free radicals. It will leave your skin feeling healthy and looking radiant. You’ll need:

  • 2 or 3 kale leaves
  • 1 cucumber
  • 2/3 cup chamomile tea, cooled
  • 6 mint sprigs
  • 1 tablespoon ANTIOXIDANT Inner Beauty Boost
  • 2 teaspoons citrus pectin

Blend the fresh ingredients together, and add the citrus pectin into the mixture until it thickens. Apply the mask to your freshly washed face, and let it sit for 10 to 15 minutes. Then gently rinse it away.

Bentonite Clay Mask


We’ve been a fan of bentonite clay for a while now—it brilliantly solves many skin-care problems—but we’ve never tried the DIY acne mask recipe on the bottle until we saw this post from Dear Crissy. You’ll need:

  • 2 tablespoons all-natural apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons bentonite clay

Note: Don’t use metal of any kind while working with bentonite clay.

Mix bentonite clay and apple cider vinegar together until the mixture has a thick, almost frothy texture. Then apply the mask to your face, avoiding the eye area. Leave the mask on for 10 to 20 minutes, closer to 10 if you have sensitive skin.

Refreshing Avocado Mask


Endorsed by Dr. Ava Shamban and AVA MD, this refreshing and smoothing avocado mask is designed to moisturize, heal, and protect your skin. You’ll need:

  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 tablespoon yogurt
  • 1/2 tablespoon lemon juice

Mix together the avocado, egg white, yogurt, and lemon juice. Apply the mixture to your skin, and let sit for 20 minutes before rinsing it off with warm water.

Cucumber Mask for Oily Skin


Cucumbers are an essential mask ingredient if you have oily skin because they’re a natural astringent. They cleanse skin, tighten pores, and whisk away excess oil. Combined with the gentle exfoliating power of oatmeal, this mask from Glamcheck is one helpful skin solution. You’ll need:

  • 1/2 of a cucumber or 1 small cucumber
  • 2 tablespoons ground oatmeal
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon honey

Cut the cucumber into 1-inch slices, and combine with the rest of the ingredients in a blender. Blend until everything is well mixed. Gently apply the mask to your skin, especially to pimple-prone areas. Softly scrub in circular motions. Then let the mask sit for 15 minutes. Rinse with cold water.
