Taking care of your skin is super important for, like, a million reasons. And while we all wish we could stock our medicine cabinets with every serum, cream, and K-beauty sheet mask our favorite celebrities swear by, that just isn’t super feasible on a college budget.
Think just because you can’t spend several hundred dollars on products means your a lost cause? Think again! Next time you’re out grocery shopping for ramen, treat yourself with a DIY face mask.
Here are a few easy homemade face masks that’s all-natural and saves you the trip to the beauty aisle. Oh, did I mention they’re 100% edible?
1. Strawberries + Plain Yogurt
This classic on-the-go breakfast doubles as a moisturizing mask. All you need is ¼ cup of fresh strawberries and ¼ cup of plain yogurt. Mash the strawberries in the yogurt with a muddler or masher, and viola! Spread the mixture all over your face and leave it on for about 20 minutes. While you Netflix and chill, I guess you can eat the leftovers.
2. Uh Huh Honey + Avocado
Brighten your skin with this avocado mask. Avocado protects skin from solar radiation, moisturizes and softens our skin, and it’s packed with vitamins A, C, and E which help slow down signs of aging. I know we’re all young and free, but it’s never too early to start taking care of our skin.
All it takes is one avocado mashed with one to two tablespoons of raw honey. If you keep it closed in a jar, this mask mix lasts three to five days in the fridge (or tastes delicious on top of toast!). Spread the mask over your face and leave it on for 15 minutes. Then, rinse it off with cool water.
3. Bananas + Honey + Plain Yogurt
This homemade remedy will leave your skin super moisturized and rich! Honey helps unclog pores, as well as hydrates and soothes skin which creates that sun-kissed glow. Bananas are high in potassium, and this mask boosts our lymphatic system which is what helps your skin clean itself and provides nutrients to every cell in our bodies. It also doubles as a quick breakfast when you’re running late to your next early morning lecture!
