If you're anything like us here at Misumi, then you love a good pamper night. Although we all talk about the importance of self-care, not many people devote enough time to actually taking care of themselves. We lead stressful lives full of uncertainties, deadlines, and endless to-do lists, so it's no surprise that we put taking care of ourselves on the back burner.
However, by treating yourself to a relaxing night-in, you're actually increasing the chances of being productive in the future without burning out. And what is a must-have for any relaxing night-in? That's right - a skincare session. A face pack, among other things, is a wonderful way to pamper yourself and ensure you wake up with refreshed and glowing skin.
If you're on the hunt for quick, natural DIY face packs for glowing skin, this is the article for you! These homemade face packs will barely take any time to create, and they'll make your skin feel incredibly luxurious. Whether you have oily skin, dry skin, dark spots, or acne, we have something to help you achieve that instant glow.
Not to mention, the majority of our homemade face mask recipes are made of ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen! All you need to do is schedule a pamper night in your planner and give one of the following face packs a go!
Anyone into natural skincare should've guessed this magical spice would be on our list.
Turmeric is the king of all-natural cosmetic products, and studies have shown that it can help with many skin concerns. With its anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties, it can do wonders for acne-prone and oily skin. Turmeric kills acne-causing bacteria and controls sebum production. It also works on redness, irritated skin, and certain skin conditions like eczema and rosacea. All of this makes it a great ingredient for any face pack.
For this natural face mask, combine all the ingredients in a small bowl and apply the mixture to your face. Be careful not to make it too thin - otherwise, it'll run off your face. You can always add more honey to make it thicker. Let the mixture sit for 15 to 20 minutes, then wash it off thoroughly. Use this homemade face pack and you'll be left with healthy skin and a glowing complexion.
If you have acne, try out this homemade face pack.
Baking soda also has anti-inflammatory properties that help with acne and redness. Not only does baking soda treat existing skin conditions - it can also prevent future acne, dark spots, and hyperpigmentation from occurring in the first place. It also controls excess sebum, which makes it a great option for people with oily skin.
In addition, the lemon drops will brighten your overall complexion, making it one of the best homemade face packs if you suffer from acne and acne marks.
Mix the baking soda with the water to form a smooth paste. Then add the lemon drops to the mix. If you have overly sensitive skin, you can always replace the lemon drops with non-comedogenic oils like vitamin E or wild rose oil.
Apply the mixture to your face in a thin layer and let it sit for 15 minutes before washing it off with warm water. After you're done, apply moisturizer as normal - we recommend the Wrinkle-Free All Day Moisturizer. This mask also makes an amazing exfoliator, but it shouldn't be done more than four times a week.
This homemade face pack is super easy to create. You'll only need two ingredients: a tablespoon of honey and an egg white. Mix them and apply the concoction to your face. Let it sit for 15-20 minutes, then wash it off. Due to the moisturizing benefits of honey, it's a perfect option for people with dry or mature skin.
Even though this combination might sound odd at first glance, it's incredibly nutritious and will leave you with glowing skin!
Mix the above ingredients to form a smooth paste-like consistency. Apply the homemade face mask on your skin and leave it on for 20 minutes to half an hour. After you're done, wash your face with cold water. Gram flour has acne-fighting properties due to its high zinc content. In addition, it also helps control excess oil, which leads to breakouts.
This is one of the easiest homemade face packs to make, as you'll likely have all the ingredients in your kitchen!
Mix all the natural ingredients and apply them on a clean face. Let the face pack sit for 10-15 minutes, and then wash it off with warm water to reveal the radiant skin below.
This aloe vera gel face pack will not only leave your skin acne-free for a long time, but it will also hydrate your skin inside out and brighten your complexion, giving you a natural glow. It's one of the quickest homemade face masks on our list.
Mix the gel with a couple of drops of each oil and apply it to your skin, avoiding the eye area. Wash the face pack off after half an hour.
Here's another turmeric face mask you could try for glowing skin. Yogurt makes your skin bright and soft, while turmeric gets rid of all those imperfections.
Mix the mashed banana with the other ingredients and apply it all over your face. After 30 minutes, wash it off thoroughly and continue your skincare routine as usual. You can use this natural face pack up to 3 times a week for a healthy glow.
This option works wonders for people with oily skin, but it will also help treat hyperpigmentation. It sheds off dead skin cells and reduces the amount of sebum. Many studies support the anti-aging effects of lemon. Also, due to their antibacterial properties, honey and green tea will keep your skin clear from acne. So if you have acne-prone skin, this is the face pack for you.
Mix the ingredients and apply the mixture to your face. Leave it on for 10-15 minutes, then wash it off with warm water.
Papaya is one of the best things you can put on your skin! It makes your skin brighter and softer and keeps it clear. Papaya contains an enzyme called papain, which acts as a natural exfoliator that gets rid of dead skin cells.
Mash the papaya and combine it with the egg white and honey. Apply the mixture to your face and let it sit for 15-20 minutes. Once the time is up, wash it off your face.
Oatmeal provides gentle exfoliation, which is crucial for keeping the skin clear in the long run. Almond oil is full of vitamin E and vitamin A, protein, and zinc, all of which keep your skin healthy and blemish-free. Vitamin E is an exceptional source of antioxidants that protect the skin against oxidative stress, which improves skin health. Oatmeal has also been known to treat sunburn.
Mix all these ingredients and apply them to your skin in a thick paste. After 10 minutes, massage gently into your face. This incredible recipe works as a face pack and an exfoliator. It removes dead skin cells, oil, and dirt, which is why it's so effective.
Clay is an extremely purifying and calming ingredient and is widely used in skincare. Tea tree oil has amazing antibacterial and antifungal properties that combat acne successfully. Combine these two and get an acne-fighting face pack that will prevent breakouts in the future!
Combine all these ingredients in a bowl and put the mixture on your face. Once 20 minutes pass, wash it off with warm water. You can also massage it onto your skin for a quick and gentle exfoliation. It removes excess oil and dead cells, making it one of the best homemade face packs for fighting skin texture.
This might sound like a random mix of a few ingredients, but each serves a specific purpose and can target different skin concerns. For instance, pumpkin is rich in vitamins C, A, and E, and it's an antioxidant powerhouse that protects the skin in the long run. Chamomile contains anti-inflammatory, antifungal, and antiseptic properties, and it works for both acne and hyperpigmentation. Coconut milk is an amazing plant-based alternative to regular milk, as it's rich in vitamin C. If you didn't know, vitamin C helps speed up collagen production, improving skin elasticity and helping your skin heal. It also improves the appearance of wrinkles, resulting in a youthful glow.
Mix the pureed pumpkin with a few drops of chamomile oil (make sure it's organic) and a tablespoon of coconut milk. Put it on your face, let it sit for 10-15 minutes, and then wash it off with lukewarm water. Your skin will be radiant and refreshed as a result.
Although these homemade face masks contain natural ingredients that have proven time and time again to be extremely effective for the skin, every skin type reacts differently to each ingredient. Before trying any of these natural face packs, make sure to conduct a patch test first.
Patch tests are a super simple and easy way to test for allergic reactions. To conduct a patch test, all you have to do is take a small sample of the ingredient and apply it to a small patch of your skin. Use a cotton ball or your finger. If you don't experience a reaction in 24 hours, you're good to go.
If you notice any negative reactions, such as itching, redness, or dryness after you've applied any of these homemade masks, stop using those ingredients immediately.
Remember, too much of a good thing can be bad. The optimal number of times you should include a face pack in your routine is no more than four times a week. If you have any skin concerns, speak to a doctor.
Although natural ingredients are amazing for the skin and can leave you with a soft and glowing complexion, the best way to keep skin radiant is by investing in a good skin routine. These homemade face packs should be used in tandem with a routine - not as an alternative. Remember to keep skin clean and clear to avoid skin problems.
If you have acne-prone skin or suffer from breakouts, try Misumi's Complete Clear 3-Step System. With a toner, cleanser, and moisturizer, you can get the glowing skin you deserve - without the fear of acne breakouts.
Textured, dry skin might not give off the impression of a healthy, glowing complexion. If you're looking to improve your skin health, we have many homemade masks that can help. When choosing the best face pack, look for ingredients like lemon (to brighten skin), aloe vera (or moisturize), and turmeric, which provide healing properties to help heal skin damage.
If you're looking for a way to brighten your face and achieve a natural glow, try homemade face packs that contain lemon juice. Lemon is a natural bleach and will help tackle dull skin, hyperpigmentation, dark spots, dark circles, and more, giving you healthy skin.
However, be careful when using this ingredient, as it can cause irritation, especially to sensitive skin types.
Try one of these homemade face packs for glowing skin on your next pamper night. With so many different ingredients out there, you'll never get bored of making face packs for your skin.
