Coconut oil + brown sugar
It wouldn’t be proper to start a DIY vegan face masks session without a coconut scrub! This will make your skin clean as a whistle and free of any residual makeup or dirt. It’s as simple as mixing coconut oil and brown sugar! Coconut oil solves everything, and mixed with brown sugar as a natural exfoliant, will clear your skin of any hidden nasties!
2 strawberries, ¼ avocado, ½ banana, squeeze of lemon juice
Mash together with a fork or whiz together in a blender, adding in lemon juice until you get a sticky consistency.
Of all the DIY vegan face masks, this is the one that is equally good for your skin as it is nutritious for you body! Why is it so good? Strawberries are naturally acidic and help remove any excess sebum causing acne or blemishes, and partnered with the lemon juice, also brightens the skin. Banana is high in potassium and moisture to hydrate the skin. Avocados contain poly and monounsaturated which keeps your skin moisturised and fights against inflammation. Winning combination! Leave it on for 10-15 minutes and before gently washing off with a damp cloth.
Cacao Powder + Ground coffee beans + Ground oats + touch of coconut milk (or any other plant-based milk)
Mix all the ingredients together, slowly adding the coconut milk until you get a thick paste consistency. Spread over your face and leave for 10-15 minutes (it will start to harden slightly) before washing off with a damp cloth.
Cacao is an ancient ingredient, packed with Vitamin C, magnesium and Omega 6 fatty acids. When used on the skin it promotes blood flow and cellular repair- equalling a youthful radiant glow! Coffee is also known to brighten the skin, so partnered with cacao, it’s the perfect match.
So why not treat yourself this weekend to a pampering session you barely have to lift a finger for! Prepare your masks, settle down with a book or a glass of red, and make an evening of it!
