Beauty Tips: Natural Homemade Face Masks (Normal Skin)

Updated on May 14, 2013

Did you think it needs much effort for a radiating skin? You will soon find out how easy it really is!

Ever since I got that really nasty allergy after trying an expensive moisture cream on my face I said “This is it. No more chemicals on my face again”, and started researching and gathering remedies and homemade natural face masks to get that fresh-looking face I always wanted. Making your own mask is a true tour de force, since you know exactly what’s in them. The best thing about the following masks is that you don’t need to go for special ingredient-hunting, since everything is practically within your hand’s reach: your kitchen!

Here is just a tiny bit of my collection of homemade natural face masks that can be used by anyone with a normal skin type. They are tested, proven effective and presented to you to enjoy!

Before starting with the face masks it would be nice to have your face properly cleansed and if you feel like reaching perfection, go for exfoliation after that! Also remember that all masks can easily be customized according to your skin’s needs, so after a few times trying them you will be able to tell exactly which ingredients fits perfect with your skin and make your own unique, natural homemade face mask! As you will see, honey is widely used in the masks, due to its various properties and it makes the perfect choice if you love its smell. For those of you that don’t, don't worry... there are other alternatives for you to choose!

Hope you enjoy!

Nutritional Tips:

Before proceeding in writing the natural homemade face masks, it is important to note that in order to have a healthy skin you have to "feed" it just like you do with the rest of your body. A diet based on lots of fruit and vegetables rich in antioxidants as well as foods rich in omega3 fatty acids are the best allies for a radiant skin, strong nails and shinny hair.

And here is why...

Antioxidants like vitamins C,E and A as well as B carotene can help reduce the free radicals that are to blame for early skin aging. A good idea is to include many colors in your everyday dish like strawberries, blackberries, grapefruits, spinach, cabbage, peppers, tomato juice, black rice and vegetables cooked in woks. Omega 3 fatty Acids are great anti-inflammatory and help greatly in cardio vascular and autoimmune diseases. They enhance memory and act protectively in certain brain cells and structure but also prevent inflammation causes by the sun's UV rays. They are found in most fish and nuts.

Face Masks for Normal Skin Types:

1. Egg and Yoghurt mask:

All you need are just 2 ingredients!

  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons of plain yoghurt


Separate the egg whites from the yolk and put them in different bowls. Add the plain ( not flavored) yoghurt in the bowl with the whites and mix them up. Apply to face and leave for a couple of minutes. Then rinse off with warm water followed by a warm cloth.

This mask should leave your face soothed and moisturized!

If you want to cleanse and rejuvenate your skin this mask is just perfect!!

2. Oatmeal and Yoghurt Face Mask:


  • 1 tablespoon of oatmeal
  • 1 tablespoon white yoghurt (organic preferably)
  • a few drops of honey


Finely ground the oatmeal , put in a bowl , add the yoghurt and mix well. Warm a few drops of honey (you can do that by leaving a spoon in a bowl with hot water for a minute and then add the honey drops in the spoon), mix together the ingredients.

Apply the mask to your face and leave for about 10 minutes. Rinse off with warm water followed by a warm cloth and then apply your moisturizer as usual.

3. Apple and Honey mask:


  • 1 apple (peeled)
  • 2 tablespoons of honey


Blend the 2 ingredients until it becomes a smooth paste and apply to your face. Leave for 20 mins and rinse off with lukewarm water.

4. Banana mask


  • ½ banana
  • 2 table spoons of honey


It is the exact same procedure as the apple mask (1). Just blend or mash ½ of a banana and add the honey. Mix well, apply, leave for about 30 mins and then wash off. Alternatively, you can omit the honey and add 2 tablespoons of yoghurt.

5. Fruit & Oatmeal Face Mask (or Summer Mask)


  • 1/4 cup peach (cooked)
  • 1/4 cup papaya (mashed)-optional-
  • 2 strawberries
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • instant oatmeal


Put the peach, papaya, strawberries and honey in a bowl and blend well. Add some instant oatmeal until your mixture becomes a paste that you can easily apply on your face. Leave for 10 mins and wash off with lukewarm water. Carefully pat your face until dry.

Tip: Instant oatmeal makes another great natural homemade face mask for normal skin, if mixed with 1 egg and 1 teaspoon of olive oil. Apply the paste on your face and leave for 10 mins before you wash off with lukewarm water. Half a cup of instant oatmeal will do, but you can adjust how solid you want your paste to be.

6. Cucumber Butter Face Mask


  • 1 Tablespoon of soft butter (preferably unsalted)
  • 1 slice of cucumber (1-inch)


Chop and mash the cucumber and beat with the soft butter. Apply the mixture to your face and wash it off after about 10 mins, preferably with lukewarm water. Softly pat your face dry.

*Alternatively, you can replace the cucumber with 1 big strawberry that you will mash and beat with the butter.

7. Clay Mask


  • Clay (any type)
  • 1 teaspoon of honey
  • Essential oil of citrus or floral (optional)
  • Milk


The ideal mix comes from 1 part of clay and 2 parts of milk, although you can adjust quantities according to your desire of the mixture’s consistency. If you want an extra aroma and a soothing effect you can add the essential oil (a few drops will do). After you mix well, apply on your face and leave for about 12-15 mins. You can also leave the mixture on your face until it dries before washing off with lukewarm water.

Variation: Replace honey, milk and essential oil with 1 beaten egg (white), floral water, cornflower and 1 drop of geranium oil. Make a paste and apply, leave until it dries and wash off.

8. Strawberry Mask


  • ½ cup of very ripe strawberries
  • ¼ cup of cornstarch


It is as simple as mixing the 2 ingredients until they become a paste you can easily use. Apply it to your face, leave for ½ an hour and rinse off. It is advised to avoid applying the paste to the area around the eyes and when you wash it off, prefer cool water.

9. Egg Mask


  • 2 eggs
  • Honey
  • 3 drops of vegetable oil


Mix the ingredients well until it becomes a mixture you can easily apply to your face, leave for 20 mins and rinse off with lukewarm water.

Help Become even Better!!!

You really exemplify the magic that happens when both worlds come together. Thank you for this inspiration today.

      Hello Stafiny,

      I'd suggest you add a few drops of essential oil. Try Young Living Peace & Calm essential oil...just 3-4 drops will give a divine smell to your mask.Let me know how this one goes!

      All the best,

      Thanks for this hub. I like using natural ingredients for beauty. I use coconut oil on my hair and have used it as a moisturizer. I also use olive oil and sugar as a scrub. However, I would never use vegetable oil on my skin. I don't consume it since it's partially hydrogenated, so I wouldn't put it on my skin. Plus I read that most vegetable oil come from pesticide ridden genetically modified vegetables. Yuck! Just thought I'd share. ;) I read that grape seed oil is great for skin and I use that to cook with in addition to coconut oil, so I think I'll try that next.

      Thanks for your hub!
