10 easy face mask recipes

You totally don’t need to spend tons of cash on expensive products to have great skin. In fact, you don’t need to buy any skincare products at all! Most of these easy face mask recipes can be made entirely from items you already have in your kitchen.

But before we get to the masks, a quick warning. A ton of DIY face masks out there recommend using lemon juice, an ingredient you should NEVER put on your face! Lemon juice can create a mild chemical burn, potentially leading to eventual hyperpigmentation and messing with your skin’s acid mantle. The TL;DR version is that while it is actually effective at reducing acne, it does more harm than good in the long term.

Anyway, enjoy these fun (lemon-free) masks! Send us pictures of yourself with your mask on for a chance to be featured on our blog.
