DIY Dorm: Homemade Face Masks

It seems like face masks have become such a big craze recently. College students, like all young adults, need to constantly take care of their skin due to breakouts and aging. But seriously, who has the kind of money to blow on those kinds of beauty products? I mean, come on… it’s college we’re talking about! There are more urgent things that our money needs to go toward. Luckily, you can actually get many of the same benefits as more expensive face masks using simple ingredients that you probably already have. We put together some easy DIY face mask recipes for every common skin concern. The best part? They’re so simple, you can whip them up right in your dorm!

If you find yourself breaking out, this mask is a good choice because green tea naturally has anti inflammatory components and will reduce redness as well. Honey is great for soothing the skin and is also an antibacterial.

 

Ingredients

1 tsp matcha (ground green tea) powder
1 tsp honey
1 tsp water

Sometimes after wearing makeup all the time or exposing your skin to the sun and wind, your complexion can become a bit dull. Baking soda and lemon juice both have a slight exfoliating power, which will remove dead skin and bring out it’s natural glow. Honey works to bind the ingredients together, and will also soothe the skin. You can also try this mask for breakouts!

 

Ingredients

1 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tbsp honey

If you often get dry patches of skin on your face, a hydrating mask is perfect. Avocados work wonders for hydrating. The banana helps hydrate as well, and the water will help thin out the mixture so you can easily apply it to your skin.

 

Ingredients

1 avocado
1 banana
If the mixture is too thick, slowly add a little bit of water until the mixture thins out a bit. Be careful not to add too much where it becomes runny.

With warmer and more humid weather here, pores sometimes start appearing larger. Egg whites have a slightly drying effect, which helps to tighten pores (keep in mind – this isn’t a permanent fix). Since the egg is a bit drying, honey will help soothe the skin so you won’t dry out too much. Add some lemon juice to help brighten your skin as well, because why not?

 

Ingredients

1/2 tsp lemon juice
1 egg white
1/2 tbsp honey
