6 Homemade Masks For Fresher Skin

With the right skincare routine, anyone can achieve vibrant and fresh-looking skin. There are numerous skin care products available in the market, but they have various chemicals and preservatives that can be damaging for the skin; moreover, any somewhat decent products are quite expensive.

However, that doesn’t mean that you can’t have fresh and glowing skin. You should opt for natural homemade face masks that are very beneficial for your skin. With a little bit of effort, you can make super active, exfoliating, moisturizing, and healing face masks at home.

Here are some of my favorite DIY face masks that you should try to make.

The coffee, lemon, and honey face mask

This is an excellent anti-aging mask that can easily be made from products that you find at home. The three ingredients work wonders on your skin. Caffeine can tighten sagging skin and reduce puffiness. The citric acid from the lemon is great for removing excess oils and cleaning your pores, and finally, honey gives the mask some structure, and it also works as an anti-inflammatory substance.


  • Ground coffee (2 tbsp)
  • Honey (1 tbsp)
  • Lemon juice (a few drops)

Directions for preparation:

  • Mix the ground coffee with the honey in a small bowl.
  • Add some lemon juice, a few drops at a time, until you achieve a smooth paste-like consistency.
  • Apply the mask to your face for 5 to 10 minutes, but don’t scrub, because the coarse coffee grounds can damage sensitive skin.
  • Wash off with lukewarm water, and use a moisturizer afterward.

The Brown sugar and grapefruit face mask:

This is an excellent exfoliating mask that will help remove dead skin cells and make your skin look fresh and vibrant. The brown sugar has an exfoliating effect, whereas the grapefruit provides vitamin C and citric acid, which helps clean out your pores and remove excess oil.
