DIY Face Masks

During stressful moments in life, it is important to take the time to take care of yourself. Self- care can look different depending on the person, and for some, self-care manifests itself in face masks!  Here are a couple of DIY face mask ideas you can try out to at home to relax and show your skin some love.

Detox:

Let go of the bad and negative with a coffee/chocolate detox mask. Aside from smelling delicious, these ingredients work to gently exfoliate the skin while also providing beneficial anti-aging properties.

  • 1 teaspoon of instant coffee (or coffee grounds)
  • 1 teaspoon of cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon of honey
  • Plain yogurt (enough to make a smooth paste)

Hydrate:

If your skin is feeling a little rough and dry, try this avocado face mask. Avocado is packed with omega 3 fatty acids and olive oil, promoting collagen growth and smooth skin. Yogurt works to soothe the skin while honey’s rich antioxidants keep you looking youthful!

  • 1 avocado
  • 2 tablespoons plain yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon honey

Brighten:

Take your skin from dull to radiant! The enzymes in the Papaya work as a natural exfoliant, clearing away dead skin cells and leaving you with a glowing complexion. Honey provides antibacterial benefits while the egg white tightens the skin, working together to clean and reduce the size of pores.

  • 1/2 cup mashed papaya
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 whipped egg white

So, sit back, close your eyes and let these face masks work their magic. Feeling inspired? You can check out Cielo’s facial services and products here. We’ll be happy to serve you when we return!
