DIY Natural Face Masks for Every Skin Type

Ive been meaning to do this post for a while now but never got around to actually doing it. Better late than never eh!
I personally love making my own facemasks. Not only are they fun to make and put on but they're also 100% natural so you dont need to worry about putting nasty chemicals on your face! Plus they're super cheap, most of the ingredients you'll probably have at home!
Below I've listed each ingredient and which skin types it suits. You can mix and match the ingredients that suits your skin however you like. Ive also included underneath a few of my favourite mixtures to make to give you some ideas!

TIP: If you have an oily t zone but dry cheeks you can make 2 masks, and put the one for oily skin on your T Zone and the nourishing one on your cheeks and so on.
Also theres no set measurements, just add as you go along until you get the correct consistency (not too runny or it'll run off your face!).
Avocado: is very gentle on the skin, it contains natural vitamins, minerals and oils. Dry, Mature and Sensitive skin.
Egg White: has toning and tightening effects, it helps with the removal of blackheads and other impurities. Young and Oily skin.
Egg Yolk: is very nourishing for the skin. Dry skin.
Honey: helps remove impurities, hydrate the skin and delays the formation of lines. Its good for all skin types and also helps the ingredients stick together.
Banana: contains potassium, calcium and vitamins. It leaves the skin feeling very soft. Dry and Sensitive skin.
Strawberries: help to increase the moisture level, they have an acid reaction on the skin and help to correct the pH of dry skin.
Cucumber: has a cooling effect and so is great for puffiness especially around the eyes. All skin types.
Natural Yoghurt: like honey is a great base for masks.
Lemon Juice: is very stimulating and helps to dry out oily skin.
Oatmeal: is very good for exfoliation, if used in the mask, you can massage it in before removing the mask to exfoliate.
Banana, egg yolk and honey. Add oatmeal for an exfoliation.
Egg white, lemon juice and yoghurt.
Yoghurt, avocado and banana.
Avocado, honey and yoghurt.
Mix your mask and apply to clean dry skin. Leave for about 20 minutes, depending on your skins reaction (remove if itchy/painful etc), remove with lukewarm water. Apply toner (or splash your face with cold water and dry) and then moisture :)

Hope you all enjoy your pampering session, let me know what mask you mix! Also if you have any questions, please do leave them below!
