We’ve just launched our Making my Fyace Beautiful Beuty Bowl Set, and we wanted to create a list of homemade masks for you to try with this gorgeous bit of kit.
Hey, I’ll be the first in the queue to tell you that DIY beauty products can be a little; hmmmm…shall we say, suspect. Unless you’re using gentle and simple ingredients, you may be doing your skin more harm than good (I see you, baking soda and lemon). However, that doesn’t mean all DIY masks should be barred. It just means you need to know which are safe to try. And that’s where I come in.
I waved my little fairy godmother wand and found you 6 of the best, easy-AF face mask recipes to try from the interwbz. Whether you just want a bit of pampering or you have a skin problem that you want to address, keep on scrolling to find which mask is best for your skin type. With gentle and natural ingredients like oats, banana, and honey, you’re sure to fall in love with the DIY lifestyle, just don’t come for me when your SO complain you’ve used up all the avocados…AGAIN.
