1 Minute Easy DIY Lush Inspired Face Mask!

diyfacemask

Ever wanted to make a face mask, but you didn’t know where to start? You may think face masks are super expensive and time consuming, but the truth is, you can probably make a face mask out of items that are already in your house! Here’s how to make a DIY Lush quality face mask in under one minute, with items in your own kitchen!

IMG_9294You will need:

Plain Greek Yogurt (1 cup)

Serves as an amazing base for a thick, creamy mask. The lactic acid will help with dry/itchy acne prone skin as well!

Avocado (1/2)

Contains Vitamin A, which is a form of retinol (ooh science words). This basically means it will help reduce discoloration and dryness.

Almonds (One small handfull)

A great natural exfoliant! (#BanTheBead) Almond will give your face a shiny, healthy glow.

Honey (2 tablespoons)

Honey helps to fix pimples, scars, wrinkles and even (of course) dry skin. It’s basically the best thing in your kitchen to slap on your face. Literally just bathe in honey.

Glycerin ( Optional/1 Teaspoon)

Glycerin is a common ingredient in many anti aging products. You can find it in the grocery store! It basically holds same benefits as honey, so this is optional- but it will do good things and make you feel super medically intelligent when you mix it into a mask!

Step 1: Add greek yogurt, honey and glycerin to a small bowl/tupperware IMG_9325 Step 2: Add in your almonds! I used around 20… and ate around 20 as well. Mix these together.IMG_9333Step 3: Add in one half of avocado. Note to self: Getting a rock hard avocado isn’t the smartest idea.

Step 4: Blend all together in a blender! It will blend really nicely into a thick face mask, identical to the feeling of Lush’s Mask Of Magnaminty. I used a personal bullet blender from Ninja so I wouldn’t make as much of a mess, and it worked really well.
IMG_9336Step 5:  Put it on your face, and enjoy it’s powers for 20 minutes! It will stay on your face really well, and doesn’t smell half bad either! It’s the perfect mask to make as a DIY with some friends at a sleepover!

Have you ever made your own face mask? Let me know in the comments below!

xoxo, Eva

Note** I recommend only keeping the mask for up to 5 days (if you preserve it in a closed lid container.

    Hi!! Okay, so this may sound kinda weird, but because you have soooo many fangirls, it’s hard to reach you or something. But I hope, because your blog has way less comments and stuff, that you will read this. Because Eva girl, you’re literally my hero! I love you so much! You helped me through some hard times and you inspired me to be myself and to be proud of myself. Okay, so I don’t want to make this too long, but I hope you realize that I, and I think millions and millions of girls with me, love you so so much!!

    I dont know any other face mask but I know one for the body that really helps , you just need greek yogurt and coffee crumbs then you mix it until it becomes dark brown then youre ready to put in on your skin but youre only aloud to applie it on your but , legs and your stomach .

  • Arianna

    im allergic to nuts. is there anything i could use besides almonds?

    • RJ (Rachel Justice)

      You can use anything with texture. Honey, sugar, clay, eggs, and even yogurt. Although I suggest that if you use a thick liquid, I wouldn’t leave it on your face as long. Causes breakouts and skin tissue damage. Hoped this helped!

  • Brooke O’Connor

    Hey Eva! I just started watching your videos and they are really cool. You put a smile on my face every day and I want to try and do that for others as well. I watched your “How to be successful on YouTube” video but I don’t have the money to get a fancy camera or a Macbook laptop. I am starting highschool in a month and I am getting a new computer. Probably the Asus Chromebook C300. I have no idea if the camera is good, but I just really admire what you do, and pursuing that would be really cool I think. If you have any tips or anything feel free to reach out to me I would be more than happy and pleased to see you want to help me follow in your footsteps. My email is oconnorbrooke@gmail.com so hit me up sometime if you feel like helping me out! Thanks again! Love you! -Brooke 🙂 <3
