5 Easy DIY Facial Masks

Everyone knows that the basis of every beautiful makeup design is healthy, glowing skin, especially if you’re preparing for your wedding day. A facial mask from a spa can be one of the best ways to achieve radiant skin, but who has the money or the time? Try one, or all, of these easy DIY facial masks to improve your skin and feel great, whether you’re getting married soon or just don’t feel that your skin is as healthy as it could be.

3-2-1 Acne Mask

We've all had to fight acne at one time or another. Just one zit can cause heartbreak, but a breakout can ruin an entire weekend. That's where the 3-2-1 acne mask comes in. Not only does this mask blast away acne, it is also dead simple to make. In fact, you'll need just three ingredients: turmeric powder, coconut oil, and lemon juice. The odds are, you already have most of these in your kitchen.

To make this mask you just need to remember the simple rule of 3-2-1. Combine 3 tablespoons of coconut oil, 2 tablespoons of lemon juice and 1 tablespoon of turmeric powder. Rub the mask onto your face and leave it on for two minutes before rinsing. At the end, your face will feel clean and tingly!

Soothing Bedtime Mask

After a long day, it is easy to feel stressed and tired. Your skin feels it too, and tired skin is not pretty skin. This mask will calm your tired skin and soothe you after your long day. As a bonus, it only has three ingredients so you won't have to waste what little energy you have left trying to make your mask.

Stir together 2 tablespoons of plain Greek yogurt, 1 tablespoon of honey, and 1/3 tablespoon of lavender oil or lavender flowers. Relax with this mixture slathered on your face for about 10 minutes. Try not to fall asleep! Once the 10 minutes are up, just rinse, moisturize, and drift off to sleep.

Ultra-Hydration Mask

Fighting dry skin seems like a never ending battle. Either rough patches are showing under otherwise flawless makeup or greasy moisturizers slide right off of the face, taking the makeup with it. This 2-ingredient mask starts hydrating instantly and allows the face to drink up all of the moisture it needs to look flawless all day.

To make this mask just mash half of a ripe avocado into a quarter cup of honey and apply to the face. Wash off with a good facial soap after 10 minutes. Smooth, hydrated skin is just around the corner.

Oily Skin Fighting Mask

All the way on the opposite end of the spectrum, oily skin is wreaking havoc on many faces. There is an easy mask for that too. This mask is soothing as well, giving it double power and, of course, it's completely simple to make.

Just combine 1 tablespoon honey, 1 tablespoon plain yogurt, and 1 tablespoon of ground oatmeal. Apply the mixture to your face and leave on for 10 minutes, then wash it off. Your face will feel oil-free.

Wrinkle Fighting Mask

Wrinkles are a natural part of life, but that doesn't mean they must be accepted. This simple 3-ingredient mask can help fight wrinkles and tighten the skin of the face. Younger looking skin is just 15 minutes away.

To make this mask start by mashing 1 banana, then stir in 1 teaspoon of olive oil and 1 egg yolk. Keep the mixture on your face for 15 minutes, then gently wash away. You'll feel the benefits instantly!

When you're battling everything that life throws at your skin, you now have an arsenal of easy masks that can aid in your fight. Wearing one of these masks in preparation for your wedding can be a great way to prepare your skin as well. With healthy looking skin and a dress from a store like Bridal Elegance, you can be prepared for the happiest day of your life.
