The Best DIY Face Masks for Glowing Skin

Skin that glows is skin that says to the world you are confident and happy. We've put together a list of the best DIY face masks you can do, right at home!

A Honey Facial Honey is an ancient remedy that has been used for many illnesses. Honey is the perfect thing to put on your skin for that extra glow. Mix up three teaspoons of honey with a teaspoon of freshly squeezed lemon juice. Apply to your face with towels that have been dipped in warm water. Let sit for twenty minutes and then wash off fully. 

Bathe Your Face in Oatmeal Oatmeal has been shown to absorb excess water and help restore the oil balance of your skin. Warm up a plain oatmeal packet with warm water or milk. Apply it to your skin for ten minutes. The oatmeal will leave your skin feeling less oily and help clear out your pores. 

Use the Power of Avocado Avocados are very rich in potassium and healthy animal fats. So tap into the power of an avocado with an avocado face mask! Mash up a single avocado with two teaspoons of yogurt. The oils from the avocado and the fat from the yogurt make the perfect thing to help your skin look great. Leave on your for twenty minutes for maximum effect. Remove with a soft washcloth and then bathe your face in cool water. 

Turmeric, Cinnamon and Sandalwood Beat facial acne and make your skin glow again with these classic spices. Make a facial mask of equal parts of each ingredient with a tablespoon of water and two drops of lemon juice. Let sit for at least ten minutes to allow the ingredients to blend together well. Carefully brush on the facial mask all over your face, making sure not to get any of the ingredients in your eyes or eyebrows. Keep on your face for twenty minutes to allow the skin to absorb the ingredients properly.
