DIY peel-off face masks are a great addition to a weekly skincare routine. You can use peel off masks to achieve clear, glowing and moisturized skin.

DIY peel-off face masks are different from typical face masks because they are made to stick to your skin and dry out after application. They are then peeled off, not washed off, hence the name. Peel-off masks can aid in all sorts of different skin conditions. They are extra helpful for removing dirt and grime and giving your pores a deep cleanse. DIY peel-off masks are easy to make using natural ingredients. They are also customizable so you can switch it up as you wish. Below are our favorite DIY peel-off mask recipes.

Turmeric is great for acne-prone skin as it is a natural antiseptic. It fights acne-causing bacteria, reduces inflammation, and helps brighten skin. You can even grow turmeric at home. Honey is a great addition because it is also antibacterial, and provides moisture. 

  1. In a small bowl, combine 1/2 tablespoon warm water, 1 tablespoon organic honey, and 2 drops of turmeric essential oil (you can also substitute with 1 teaspoon ground turmeric).
  2. Set out two bowls and separate 2 eggs. Set the egg yolks aside and add the egg whites to your honey-turmeric mixture. You can save the yolks for later to make an omelet or spaghetti frittata
  3. Mix the egg whites and the honey-turmeric mixture well.
  4. Use a makeup brush to apply half of the mask to your face.
  5. Take a piece of tissue paper and layer it over the mask, gently pressing it onto your skin.
