16 Luxurious Homemade Face Masks
Remember to follow the instructions for each mask below. Leaving a mask on longer than recommended may actually not be a good idea, depending on what’s in the homemade face mask. Also remember that these are DIY face masks, not DIY face scrubs. That means you need to just apply them to your skin, don’t rub/scrub them on. Here are a few important tips before you get started:
- Apply masks to a clean face. It’s very important that you clean your face before you begin. Otherwise, you may clog your pores and end up with a break-out.
- It’s important to exfoliate your skin. Exfoliating is a great way to remove any dead skin as well as excess oils. It will allow the face mask to penetrate your skin better, too. A nice DIY sugar scrub can help with this.
- Don’t use a mask that you react to. If you break out or end up with a rash, stop using that particular mask. Odds are you have an allergy or are sensitive to one of the ingredients. It’s best to find a different blend to see if it works better.

There are so many homemade face masks you can try, and as you’ll see, they’re all inexpensive and easy to make! Just don’t try to use them all at once! Though you can use more than one mask on the same day (this is called multi-masking). Also, you won’t want to use face masks every single day (with some masks, there is a chance that over-use could actually damage your skin, or at least dry it out). In general, you shouldn’t use face masks more than 3 times a week.
And remember that these make great DIY gift ideas! Just put them in a nice jar with a pretty ribbon, and you have a thoughtful (and useful) homemade gift ready to go!
