Natural DIY Face Masks

There are plenty of face mask options to choose from at the store, but if you want to avoid harsh chemicals, reduce your impact on the environment, and save a bit of money, making your own natural DIY face masks is a great choice!

On this list, you’ll find a few different types of face masks to suit different needs. Some will be better for dry skin, some help a ton with acne, and a few are great for all-around everyday use.

When you find a homemade face mask that you want to try, just follow the tutorial to learn how to make it at home! Most of them are pretty simple and require few ingredients.

1. Face Peel Mask for Dry Skin and Acne
