5 All-Natural DIY Face Masks That Are Good Enough to Eat

Exfoliating Peach Yogurt Mask

The secret to radiant skin is turmeric, according to Dr. Frank Lipman, M.D., a doctor and wellness expert who has worked with celebrities such as Gwyneth Paltrow and Maggie Gyllenhaal. For this mask, you’ll need 1/2 a banana, 1/2 tsp. of turmeric, 1/2 tsp. of matcha powder and a 1/4 cup of yogurt.

Mash the banana first in a small bowl before you mix all of your ingredients together. Then, continue to mix your ingredients until they become well-blended and smooth. Apply your mixture to your face and leave it on for 15 minutes. Once you’re ready, remove your mask with a damp towel.

Why it works:

Turmeric has been “embraced as an anti-inflammatory agent,” says Lipman. If you’ve been experiencing any redness or swelling, this mask can help soothe those symptoms.
Exfoliating Peach Yogurt Mask

Shrink your pores and get hydrated, soft and super-tight skin with just two ingredients, thanks to beauty blogger Farah Dhukai. All you’ll need is the egg white from 1 egg and 1 Tbsp. of sugar.

Whisk your egg white and sugar in a ceramic or metal bowl until the consistency turns from runny to a white, thick bubbly foam. Don’t use a plastic bowl and make sure you don’t get any yolk in the mixture or the mask won’t foam. Then, apply the mask to your face and wait to feel the bubbles tingle on your skin. Wash it off after 10 to 15 minutes and then look in the mirror to discover shrunken pores and gorgeous skin.

Why it works:

Eggs whites are high in protein so they can help firm up skin, and sugar acts as a natural exfoliant that can help eliminate dead skin build-up so you can steer clear of any blemishes you might feel forming on your face. If you feel extra tempted to taste your creation, you can because it’s basically the same recipe to make sweet meringue. But don’t snack too much or you won’t have any left for your face!

Cucumber Avocado Cooling Mask

If you’ve struggled with dry, flaky skin, try this refreshing mask from Genius Kitchen. You’ll need a 1/2 cup of chopped cucumber, a 1/2 cup of chopped avocado, 1 egg white and 2 tsp. of powered milk.

Once you’ve gathered your ingredients, blend them together in a food processor until your mixture becomes a smooth paste. Then, apply the mask immediately to your face and neck. Let it sit for 30 minutes and then remove it with warm water, followed by cold.

Why it works:

Cucumbers are loaded with water, potassium and vitamins A and C, which help with sunburns or severely dry skin, according to HuffPost. The flavonoids and antioxidants in cucumbers can also decrease swelling, redness and irritation and provide a cooling effect that’ll feel amazing during those hot summer months. The healthy fats from avocados can help deeply moisturize the skin, leaving your face feeling smooth and hydrated. You’ll love running home to whip up this refreshing mask after being out in the sizzling summer sun or after a beach vacation.
