2 DIY Facials You Can Do At Home – No Matter Your Skin Type

Whether your skin is oily, dry, acne prone or normal, we’ve got you covered.

As an aesthetician, I know how important a professional facial is for healthy, glowing skin. But I always tell my clients that their skin is only as good as the work they put in between treatments. Since none of us knows when we’ll be able to go in for our next facial due to stay-at-home orders, it’s more important than ever to take good care of your skin at home. Luckily, many standard kitchen items make great DIY treatments, so you can take care of your skin even as the global pandemic rages on.

Since every person’s skin is different, the same mask might not be suitable across the board. The two below are some of my favorites. If you have normal to dry skin and need hydration – even if you suffer from acne – use the hydration mask. If your skin needs a detox from environmental pollutants, pollens, toxins, or debris from sweat or touching your skin, use the detox max. Either way, these mix-it-yourself masks are easy to recreate at home to keep your skin looking and feeling fresh.

Hydration Mask for Dry Skin

Spending a lot of time indoors means that you’re often stuck in a dry environment that zaps moisture out of your skin. As the weather heats up, AC will make that dryness even worse. This mask is a moisturizing multitasker: the vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that helps soothe irritation caused by dryness, while argan oil and avocado hydrate and strengthen the lipid barrier with omega fatty acids to prevent moisture from escaping the skin. Bonus: this mask makes an excellent hair treatment as well.
