4 Quick & Effortless DIY Masks For Glowing Skin

Achieving a radiant glow for your skin in the comfort of your home has never been more effortless. With four fuss-free mask recipes, using ingredients easily found in your local supermarket, we are sure that you’ll be glowing and smiling in no time!

 

1. Rice Flour and Honey Face Mask

First up on the list of easy, effortless masks to pamper your skin with, we have beneficial nutrients from rice and honey to hydrate, heal and repair your skin in minutes.

You’ll Need:

  • 1 tablespoon of ground white rice flour
  • 2 tablespoons of raw honey

Simply mix both ingredients till well blended and apply using a cosmetic brush. Avoid the sensitive area around your eyes during application. Leave the mask on for 15 minutes — gently massage into skin in circular motions, before wiping it off with a warm washcloth and rinsing with cool water. Follow up with a light toner, such as rose water, and your preferred moisturiser. Use this mask twice a week for 3 weeks to start seeing results.

Why It Works:

Rice powder has been used by Asian women for centuries to brighten and smoothen their skin naturally. The amino acids and vitamins found in rice act as skin-clearing agents and control the shine of the skin. Combined with the anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties of raw honey, this mask helps to lighten acne scars on the skin and increase the rate of cell regeneration too.

What We Love about It:

We love how this mask requires only two readily available ingredients that you can keep in your pantry and can be made in a jiffy. Perfect for the busy bees to keep up with the regime without frills.

 

2. Cocoa & Yoghurt Face Mask

A delightful and decadent recipe for both your tongue and skin, this mask contains enriching proteins and lactic acids to give your skin a boost in achieving glowy skin.

You’ll Need:

  • 2 teaspoons of cocoa powder
  • 3 tablespoons of Greek yoghurt
  • 1 teaspoon of raw honey
  • 1 teaspoon of fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 a ripe banana, mashed

Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix thoroughly using a blender. Apply mask on to entire face except for the eye area and keep it on for 20–25 minutes. Rinse the mask off with water and gently pat dry. Apply two to three times a week for at least 3 to 4 weeks to get glowy, well-moisturised skin.

Why It Works:

Cocoa powder contains powerful antioxidant properties of flavonols, which help to fight free radicals. The flavonoids present in cocoa would also help nourish your skin, boost its elasticity and reduce blemishes that dull your skin. Combined with lactic acid in Greek yoghurt and fresh lemon juice as a natural bleaching agent, this mask will leave your skin feeling soft, supple and fairer.

What We Love about It:

If there is ever a recipe for your yummy and nutritious bircher muesli base that you can double up as a face mask, this would definitely be it. We are sure that both your skin and tummy will be well pleased.

 

3. Tomato, Yoghurt & Oatmeal Mask

Providing excellent properties in exfoliating, healing and anti-ageing, you’ll definitely fall in love with this refreshing effortless 3-in-1 glow mask.

You’ll Need:

  • 2 teaspoons of freshly squeezed tomato juice
  • 1 teaspoon of Greek yoghurt
  • 1 teaspoon of oatmeal

Mix all ingredients listed in a bowl and apply to entire face, avoiding the eye area. Rinse with warm water 20 minutes after. Pat dry and moisturise with your skincare regime. Use this mask preferably two to three times a week.

Why It Works:

Fresh tomatoes contain lycopene, vitamin C and an abundance of antioxidants, which can protect skin from ageing and help make your skin glow. Working hand in hand with oatmeal and yoghurt as gentle exfoliants, these ingredients aid in removing dead skin cells and impurities, which in turn results in fairer skin and definitely better absorption of the beneficial nutrients and vitamins in this mask.
