LUX Beauty: 5 DIY Facial Masks
Go all natural with your skin care and make these masks on your own.
Ditch your store bought masks and save some money by making your own. Free from any harsh chemicals that can wreak havoc on your skin, these five DIY masks are all natural and good for you. Head to the farmers market and into the kitchen to whip up one of these DIYs.
Banana Honey Face Mask
It’s no secret honey is good for your skin, but did you know bananas are, too? Combine the two for a moisturizing mask that will ease skin that could be suffering from the cold. With only three ingredients, this is a cinch to make and it’s inexpensive. Leave on your skin for 30 minutes for a soft and smooth texture.
Floral Face Mask
Everyone loves flowers, and they’re even better when we can implement them into our beauty regimen. A mask that uses the wonders of clay, this mask also includes oats, almonds and, the main ingredient, flowers. Take dried lavender and rose petals and add them to the mix for a mask that will help treat acne and moisturize skin.
Oatmeal Face Mask
As we transition into spring, help smooth away dead skin with a natural exfoliate such as this all-natural oatmeal mask. The three-ingredient mask will help reduce puffiness and reduce pores for glowing and healthy skin. This will be a quick fix as results will be seen after leaving the mask on for only 10 short minutes.

Chocolate Oatmeal Face Mask
Salons also offer this decadent mask, but it can be quite pricey. Save money and mix up your own mask in the comfort of your kitchen. Pamper your skin with the mood-boosting ingredient and let the results amaze you. Skin friendly ingredients such as oatmeal and honey play a role in the mask and the cocoa aids in freeing the skin from toxins that have damaged the skin.

Draw impurities out of your skin with this clay kaolin mask. A popular mask, clay utilizes antioxidants to help repair skin and reduce inflammation. You can easily purchase powdered clay online and head to your local health food store for an all-natural cocoa powder. An optional green tea can be used to mix the powders and create texture.
