A D-I-Y Face Mask To Change Your Life!

No matter who you are, everyone has the obligatory pamper night now and again. A long soak in the bath followed by a deep skin cleanse never fails to exceed my needs on a Sunday night; But it all comes at a price. Who wants to spend £30+ on a face mask when you can simply make one using the contents of your kitchen cupboards?

Low and behold, and about 50 avocados later, I have found my perfect match. I don't know the science behind it, or why it works, but it just does. I mean if you can get over the strange smell, this D-I-Y face mask is an absolute godsend that I recommend everyone to try! It has made a dramatic difference to the quality of my skin and I have also seen a significant decrease in blemishes and redness since using this! There is absolutely no harm in testing it out, and for around £1.50, you seriously cannot go wrong.

1/2 Avocado
1 Egg White
1 tsp Oats
1 Lemon (optional)

  1. First off, cut your avocado in half. Depending on how much you will be using, you might want to use a full avocado, but I find cutting it in half does my whole face just fine.
  2. Mash up the avocado into tiny pieces, It should be mushy, semi liquid formula.
  3. Crack your egg akin sure you are only using the egg white and leaving the yolk.
  4. Mix in your porridge oats and combine together.
  5. Squeeze a lemon into the mixture (this is optional, will tighten skin) and apply to face.
  6. Leave on for 20-25 minutes and wash off with warm water.
  7. Finally, apply an once cold flannel onto the skin for a few seconds to tighten the pores.

Have you ever made your own face mask? Would you rather buy one pre-made or make your own?

Have a great day!

  1. I love mixing up my own masks, so much better and cheaper as you know what's going into it! I haven't thought of putting avocado in one though, so I will have to try this! x

    1. Yes exactly, I feel much better about plastering my face in something if I know exactly what's inside it. It's perfect for face masks, would love to know your thoughts once you have tried! Thank you for the lovely comment Kathryn. x
