A spa-quality DIY face mask is just one grocery trip away.


Now don’t get me wrong, your girl loves a good day at the spa getting a facial, pampering, and sippin’ on some cucumber water. However, that sadly is not allotted of my current monthly budget. So, being the thrifty millennial I am, I’ve found some amazing beauty bloggers each with their own tried and true DIY face mask for any skin condition! Best of all, the ingredients are probably already in your kitchen or only one grocery trip away.

Wasn’t this supposed to end after graduating high school?! Lots of things in our adult lives can cause acne: work stress, diet, exercise, genetics, or a combination of all these things! Keeping your skin clean and pores unclogged is critical, and this DIY face mask by Farah Dhukai is exactly what you need to annihilate acne.


This DIY face mask contains calcium bentonite clay, which is key for pulling out impurities and excess sodium, and it helps with blood circulation. This product is probably not already in your home, but can be found at a local health store, The Vitamin Shoppe, or on Amazon. The other ingredient, apple cider vinegar, helps reduce acne, restore your skin’s pH levels, and battle wrinkles. Simply mix two tablespoons of each ingredient into a plastic or ceramic bowl with a plastic utensil (metal conflicts with the clay’s elements)until creamy, immediately apply a thick layer to your face, let it dry completely, rinse off with water and voila! Baby soft clearer skin!




  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tbsp calcium bentonite clay

DIY Face Mask For Blackheads


View this post on Instagram

✨BYE BYE????????BLACKHEADS✨ 2nd recipe this year & I'll keep sharing more, till you find THE ONE that works BEST for you! ???????????? ???? ???????????????????????? who'd love to try this! ????????????????????????????????????????????: 1 tablespoon bentonite clay 2 capsules activated charcoal 1-2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar 3-4 drops tea tree oil (mine's from @ilovenaturalliving) ????????????????????????????????????????: Add enough ACV to form a paste. Mix everything & apply a layer over all the areas where you have blackheads. Leave on for 10 min then remove with lukewarm water & a soft washcloth. Apply moisturizer as usual. I mix mine with 2 drops of tea tree oil as well, to help keep blackheads & acne at bay (which in the case of my skin it means – get LESS of them on my face ????). ???????????? ???????????????? ????????????????????: Bentonite clay has an abundance of minerals, including calcium, magnesium, silica, iron & potassium. It will help unclog & shrink pores, exfoliate, & control the production of sebum. Activated charcoal is known for its absorbent properties, so it will help remove impurities from the skin & reduce inflammation. Apple cider vinegar kills bacteria, removes excess oil, dirt & dissolves dead skin cells. It will help restore the pH level of the skin. Tea tree oil has antifungal & antiseptic properties. It deeply penetrates skin, disinfecting the pores & drying out blackheads, whiteheads & pimples. I also kept seeing this "Spotcleaner" tool in a bunch of IG ????videos & decided to try it. First I used it after the mask but didn't notice anything getting extracted. Then I tried it on the chin, where I didn't use the mask & a little gunk came out. I wish it had better suction & wouldn't have to push hard & hold the ON button down, so for those reasons I'll give it a 6️⃣ on a scale of 1️⃣➖1️⃣0️⃣. Luckily I saw it for sale on the 'Wish' app for just $1. Happy Monday beautiful friend, TY for watching! I ❤️you! _________ #blackheads#acne#pimples#organicbeauty#organicskincare#hudabeauty#skincare#acneproblems#nailsbrowshair#wakeupandmakeup#breakouts#girlsociety#acnetreatment#blackhead#acneskin#blackheadremover#glowingskin#naturalskincare#beautyvideo#beautybloggers#diybeauty#DIY#pressplay#diyskin#videotutorial

One of the grossest but most satisfying pleasures in the world is seeing blackheads removed from your skin. The process of extracting dirt from your pores is typically less than glamorous but oh how sweet the rewards are when your clean, poreless skin is revealed.


Beauty blogger Alexandra Potora swears by her DIY face mask to remove her blackheads. It contains a killer combination of bentonite clay, activated charcoal (found at your local CVS or vitamin aisle at the grocery store), apple cider vinegar, and tea tree oil (get it at Target or Walgreens) to kill bacteria, disinfect pores and dry out blackheads. Simply mix the ingredients together in a bowl until a paste like mixture is formed (add in more activated charcoal if necessary). Immediately apply paste mixture to your problem areas, leave on for 10 minutes, remove it with a washcloth, and revel in your flawless complexion.




  • 1 tbsp bentonite clay
  • 2 capsules activated charcoal
  • 1-2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 3-4 drops tea tree oil

Ridding your skin of excess oil but maintaining a hydrated healthy glow can be a taxing balancing act. It’s all about finding ingredients that will soak up excess oil without stripping your skin completely of it, causing dry skin issues instead. That’s why I’m obsessed with this incredibly simple DIY face mask from beauty blogger Farah Dhukai, created with just egg whites and sugar. The egg whites are a natural astringent that take away the excess oil in your skin while tightening and minimizing pores. The sugar is a natural exfoliant and assists with cell turnover, keeping your face looking fresh.


Mix the two ingredients in a ceramic or metal bowl (plastic will not allow the mixture to foam) until a white, thick, bubbly foam appears, apply to your entire face with a brush, and let it sit for 10 to 15 minutes before rinsing off with lukewarm water to reveal your newly tightened face and pores!




  • 1 egg to separate or egg whites
  • 1 tbsp sugar

DIY Face Mask For Dry Skin




Say you’re coping with the opposite of oily skin and instead have naturally dry skin or temporarily dry skin due to harsh, chemical astringents. Never fear, loves! There’s a DIY face mask for your dry skin condition! Put down the expensive face creams, walk out of the beauty aisle, and head to the grocery aisle for some turmeric, aloe vera, and honey. These natural ingredients help rejuvenate tired skin, pack in moisture, reduce inflammation, and promote a healthy glow. Beauty blogger Beauty By Mathu mixes aloe vera, honey, and turmeric in a bowl until blended, applies to her face, and lets it sit for 20 minutes. She then washes the face mask off with water and towel dries to reveal hydrated skin!




  • 2 tbsp aloe vera
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tsp turmeric

DIY Face Mask For Sensitive Skin

DIY Turmeric face mask! Great for acne and dark circles! Turmeric has amazing antioxidant properties! It reduces inflammation and redness, promotes skin healing, and softens lines and wrinkles. Here’s the recipe for this Amazing ACNE fighter: Ingredients 1 teaspoon of turmeric
1 teaspoon of raw organic honey
1 teaspoon of natural yoghurt 1 teaspoon of lemon juice-optional (great for lightening the skin and fighting oil) Put all the ingredients into a small bowl & mix together well. You can adjust the amount of the yogurt you use to make the thickness as you like but make sure it’s a firm paste that will stick to your face. Turmeric is a dye and it can stain anything, so you don’t want it dripping off your face. Apply the mask evenly all over your face! Let the mask dry on your face for 20 minutes and then wash it off with cool water. Dry your face gently with a face towel. You can repeat this mask ever few weeks. The only side effect is that turmeric will turn your skin a little yellow since it is a dye but that can be cleared using a cotton pad and facial toner.
 Turmeric is a good antioxidant, and an anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial agent. Honey is a great moisturizer & yogurt is a great exfoliator! #DIY #acne
