Avocados are loaded with good fats that help nourish the skin. They also contain lauric acid which helps combat inflammation, and vitamins A and E which can offer antioxidant protection. Honey makes the perfect mask partner for avocado thanks to its anti-bacterial properties, and it also helps soothe breakouts while gently clarifying the skin.


Egg White and Sugar

Egg whites help firm and tighten the skin. Thanks to the tightening benefits, the pores become more closed and can appear smaller. Sugar contains glycolic acid which helps to helps to stimulate cell turnover (when applied topically). It’s also a natural humectant which attracts and holds moisture to the skin. Sugar helps balances out the taut sensation egg whites can cause when used alone, so your skin will feel soft and supple after you wear this mask.


  • Crack an egg and remove the yolk; ensure no yolk mixes with the egg whites, otherwise your mixture will not thicken
  • Whip with a whisk until the mixture forms peaks
  • Add one tablespoon of sugar and mix well
  • Apply to face and leave on for 10 to 15 minutes
  • Rinse face with cool water and pat dry
  • Follow with your favourite moisturizer

Banana and Oatmeal

Bananas contain potassium which helps hydrate and moisturize the skin, as well as vitamins A and B which help tackle hyperpigmentation. Oatmeal helps gently exfoliate while providing antioxidant benefits, and it also has selenium and polysaccharides which help promote elasticity and firmness for a more youthful appearance. Your skin will be left glowing and feeling softer after using this mask.


  • Peel and mash a whole banana in a bowl
  • Add a tablespoon of oatmeal and mix until smooth
  • Apply to face and leave on for 10 to 15 minutes
  • Rinse face with cool water and pat dry
  • Follow with your favourite moisturizer

You can always add more ingredients to any of these masks for additional benefits. Essential oils, coconut oil and yogurt are also fantastic options to create a spa-like experience at home. If you have some leftover mixture in your bowl, how about you show your elbows some love? If you lean on your elbows often, you could benefit from some hydration and brightness to these often-neglected body parts. After all, short-sleeve tee season is just around the corner!
