6 Ingredients You Already Have In Your Kitchen That You Can Turn Into DIY Skincare

DIY face mask and natural skincare

Despite writing about DIY skincare and other beauty topics for a living, I haven’t made my own face mask at home since I was a kid. One of the biggest reasons is that I always feel like I never have time to mix a mask on my own — I’d rather just try out one of the many formulas I get sent in the mail from a brand to test.

The other reason — which I’m reluctant to admit! — is that I’ve always felt natural ingredients wouldn’t be enough to transform my skin in any way. It seems almost silly: how could a few tablespoons of yogurt smeared across my face actually do something? Yet, as I’ve learned more about skin and ingredients throughout the years, I’ve come to realize that even one simple, straight-from-nature ingredient can do a lot more for your skin than you realize. Case in point: yogurt is loaded with lactic acid, an alpha hydroxy acid and a naturally gentle exfoliant.

Now that we all have ample amount of time to spend indoors, it’s the perfect time to get crafty when it comes to our skincare routines. Here, to take “natural skincare” to a whole other level, we’ve turned to the experts for ways to use ingredients you already have in your kitchen to concoct powerful DIY face masks. Keep reading to discover their recipes below. We promise — even if you’re typically not a whiz with a whisk, you’ll be able to whip up these simple skin DIYs.
