Maybe all of the holiday shopping has your wallet on the lighter side or perhaps you’re up for some beauty experimenting. Either way, there are some multitasking edibles in your pantry or fridge that can be mixed together to create a super moisturizing face mask. Food for your face is no news flash, but finding an effective and easy-to-mix recipe can be tough. Given the time of year, we’ve rounded up DIY face masks that boost radiance and hydrate the skin — goodbye dull winter skin! Whether it’s sweet like honey or on the savory (avocado!) side, check out these dry-skin-healing masks that you can make in the comfort of your home, on the cheap.
1. DIY Moisturizing Orange Face Mask
This five-part concoction exfoliates the skin and is basically a parfait — orange, yogurt, honey, oats and juice — that’s good enough to eat.
2. Milk and Banana Kitchen Beauty Face Mask
The first thought that popped into our minds was “smoothie!” The creamy mix smooths and soothes skin instantly.
3. Oatmeal, Milk and Honey
Honey is the hero ingredient in this face mask — it actually helps retain moisture and is an anti-irritant, which means it’s good for sensitive skin, too.
4. Banana, Yogurt and Almond Oil
The trifecta of sweet ingredients in this mask takes no time to whip up, and nourishes skin equally fast.
5. Avocado Face Mask
If you are an avocado fan, then look no further — this version is on the “complex” side, using both sweet and savory ingredients to give you soft skin.
