1. For minimizing pores

If you want your pores to appear smaller and be less prone to storing skin grease that later turns into acne, gather the following ingredients at hand:

  • Lemon juice – 1 tablespoon

To make this DIY mask, beat the egg white and lemon juice together with a whisk until a thick white foam appears. Apply the mixture onto your face with a brush. Wait for the mask to dry completely. Wash off with lukewarm water. To make the effect even stronger, rub your face with an ice cube immediately after washing off the mask.

3. For oily skin

Despite the popular myth, you should not wash oily skin with harsh chemicals or scrub it too often. A DIY face mask is a wonderful way to cleanse your skin and balance out the oil production of your skin.

To make this mask, you will need just one ingredient: a ripe tomato. Cut it into chunks and mash up with a fork in a bowl. Apply to your face for 15-20 minutes and then wash off with lukewarm water. In addition to removing the excess oil from your face, the tomato will also shrink your pores and give you a brighter complexion.

4. For dry skin

Having oily skin may be uncomfortable, but dry skin can be equally annoying and hard to deal with, since it’s also often sensitive and difficult to take care of. Luckily, this face mask will help you soothe and nourish dry skin. Get the following ingredients ready:

  • Aloe vera gel – 2 tablespoons
  • 1/2 of a cucumber

To prepare the mask, put the sliced half of a cucumber in a blender and blitz until the mixture is watery and homogeneous. Add the aloe vera gel, mix well, and apply to your skin in light massaging movements. Wait for the mask to dry for about 30 minutes, then rinse off with lukewarm water and apply your favourite moisturizer.

A DIY face mask is the easiest and safest way to give your skin a desired even tone and achieve a glowing complexion. This mask recipe is full of effective skin lightening agents. You will need the following ingredients:

  • Milk – 1 tablespoon
  • Lemon juice – 1 tablespoon
  • Honey – 1 teaspoon

Make the mask by whisking together the ingredients with a fork in a small bowl. Wash your face, pat it dry, and apply the mask to your skin, avoiding the area around your eyes. Leave on for 15-20 minutes, then rinse off with lukewarm water. Make sure to only do this mask before sleep, as lemon juice makes your skin more likely to sustain sunburn.
