Prepare them at home will be very simple: take a look at the pantry of the kitchen or to the refrigerator, in these places we hide surprisingly beneficial ingredients for skin and hair.

But before deciding which ingredients to use and what recipes realize, it is essential to know the type of skin and / or hair on which the mask will be applied (because, aihmè, we are not all the same!).

That's why we decided to divide them according to the needs for which they prove useful or even ideal, hoping to do what is welcome and keep you a bit of company❤️

Let's start with the DIY masks for the skin: oily or mixed skin, sensitive or reddened skin or that needs some extra brightness!

Fat and mixed skin

If the problem of your skin is the excessive production of sebum, you will be happy to know that many foods that are frequent in the kitchen are precisely useful to this imperfection.
For mixed skins instead, just apply the mask on some areas of the face (usually the T area).

Honey and lemon mask


  • Half lemon
  • Honey
  • oatmeal

The lemon has strong astringent and purifying properties, while honey serves to soothe the very aggressive action of lemon; Finally, oatmeal that, in addition to exfoliating the skin of the face, also has anti-inflammatory and anti-irritating properties, useful for attenuating any acne and pimple inflammation.

He mix in a bowl a tablespoon of honey with two tablespoons of oatmeal, then add half lemon juice.
Apply the mask on the face for 10 minutes, then rinse with plenty of water.

Tonic to apple vinegar


  • Apple vinegar
  • Waterfall

Another valid ally against sebum production and impurities is apple vinegar: famous for its antimicrobial effects, apples vinegar helps to remove dead skin cells and to regulate sebum production.

He mix a tablespoon of apple vinegar (if organic, even better!) At 1/2 glass of water and with a little wadding buffer the mixture on the parts of the face that interest you. Lets act for a few hours or even all night, then rinse with warm water.

Dried / sensitive skins

If instead your skin is very sensitive or easily irritable, here are some ingredients that will be very sweet with your face's skin!

Lenitive masks and  nutrients


  • 1 potato
  • Oatmeal

The oatmeal in fact, from the thousand resources, thanks to its anti-inflammatory and soothing properties acts perfectly on the reddened skins.
The starch present in the potatoes instead will feed the skin, making it incredibly soft and smooth.

Crush the potato until you get a puree and join a tablespoon of oatmeal: posing for 10 minutes and rinse with warm water.

  • Chamomile infusion
  • Honey
  • Oatmeal

He mixes chamomile infusion to a tablespoon of honey and one of oatmeal: posing for 10 minutes and rinse!

Exhausted skins

The skin turned off or slightly is often due to a bad or even absent beauty routine. More specifically, most of the time it is caused by failure to exfoliation. In fact, the skin cells die and regenerate day after day: it is precisely the presence of dead cells on the face of the face to cause that dark and off effect. It is therefore a good habit, for an always healthy and radiant skin, run scrubs or apply chemical exfoliating substances - as glycolic acid, present in many cosmetics - regularly, depending on the characteristics of your skin or more or less aggressive products Used.

That's why in this case, instead of a mask, we recommend a DIY scrub:here  You will find all our proposals for a 100% Home Scrub Made!

The banana, rich in vitamins and mineral salts, is a truly valuable ally for health and hair wellness. However, it can be a real puzzle if you don't pay attention to the consistency of the mask, especially for your hair that are not perfectly smooth: it is very important that banana is as smooth as possible to avoid having difficulty eliminating it with shampoo.

If you have frizzy or curly hair, easy to nodes and little you comb, then we recommend this alternative, ie:

  • Add a spoonful of honey
