Face Masks Made at Home

Face Masks Made at Home

At Nakin customers often ask us why we do not have a face mask in our Natural Skincare Range. Facemasks can benefit skin if they are used for the right skin type; as they can offer a really intensive cleansing, hydrating and conditioning treatment for the face. All of this can be achieved without a face mask and by using our Nakin Anti-Ageing Facecare Products - from our award-winning face cleansers, moisturisers and treatments. But we know some of us love to use a face mask and find them very pampering. It's a time that they can take for themselves and properly rest. So, until we add one to the Nakin range we have outlined some easy face masks that can be made at home. The nice thing about making face masks at home is that they are fresh and can easily be made using every day nutritious foods.

Face Masks Made at Home for Every Skin Type

Follow the formula recipes below and simply mix the ingredients and pop onto skin and leave for 15 minutes before rinsing off. We also recommend that you apply the homemade face mask onto the neck area as well as the face. This may make the process a little messier and trickier, but our necks often get left out of skin pampering and they really benefit from the same care that we give to our face. Our necks are often one of the first places to show a lot of signs of skin ageing, so it is worth taking care of them. When you use our natural face products always include your neck in every step, in both the morning and evening. 

When the face mask has been applied onto the skin then take some time to relax and rest while it works its magic. It's a nice time to apply our Eye Cream Complex to the eye area, or use a reusable cool eye mask. If when using the face mask at any point skin feels any sensitivity then take the face wash off immediately. These homemade face mask recipes are completely natural and very caring to skin, however, we can be allergic to even natural organic ingredients. You can also substitute any ingredients if you do not have them, just be careful that the ingredients you put on are suitable for your skin type. We would not recommend for example putting coconut oil onto oilier skin types, as it is really rich and fatty so can clog pores. Experiment with what feels right for you. Homemade face masks feel fantastic on skin and leave skin bright, soft and refreshed afterwards.

Homemade Face Mask for Oily Skin Types

Let's start with oily skin as there is a natural ingredient that we love for oilier faces, it is great for home-made face masks and this is charcoal. Charcoal is perfect for people with greasier skin types, and even those with excessively oily faces because it draws impurities out from deep down in the pores with its detoxifying ability. Often when a charcoal face mask is on skin you can actually see the pores opening up and cleansing. Here is a recipe to follow.

  • 1 tsp activated charcoal powder
  • 1 tsp aloe vera gel
  • 1 drop tea tree essential oil

Homemade Face Mask for Normal Skin

Normal skin types have more flexibility on the formulas that can be used for the face and include ingredients that both purify and hydrate skin, as well as giving all round skin conditioning and nourishment. Try this face mask to boost, hydrate and freshen skin.

  • 1 tsp of honey
  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • 1/3rd banana mashed up into a smooth paste

Homemade Face Mask for Dry Skin

One of the important things for dry skin is intense moisture, but also exfoliation to remove dead skin cells that can lead to flaking. Before applying this face mask use our Exfoliating Radiance Tonic to slough away dead skin cells. The freshly exfoliated skin can then more easily drink-up the goodness of the homemade mask for really intense and super nourishment, that helps even with dry patches. Try this recipe for the perfect skin food.

  • 2 tsp’s oats
  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • 1 drop rose essential oil

Homemade Face Mask for Combination Skin 

Face masks for combination skin need to combine the moisture for dry skin, while still leaving a matt finish. This simple mask contains honey which has the richness for drier areas, but it’s also good for helping skin impurities, break outs and acne.

  • 1 tsp of honey
  • 1 tsp aloe vera gel
  • 1/3rd banana mashed up

Homemade Face Mask for Sensitive Skin 

Face masks can quieten down sensitive skin so that it feels back to normal, fresh and beautiful. The ingredients in this recipe are ones that are gentle to even irritated skin. Always carry out a patch test first though, in case of any allergies.

  • 1 tsp natural plain yoghurt
  • 1 tsp shea butter
  • 1 tsp jojoba oil
