Summer 2019 is in full gear and if their is one thing all girls need – it’s to detox their skin in this sticky humid weather. Self care is essential to maintain glowing, acne-free skin. We’ve rounded up 5 Do-It-Yourself Face masks for you to try with your girlfriends this summer. Bask in the rich goodness of nutritious products working their magic, put on some music and RELAX!

  1. The Disprin Face Mask (YES, you read that right!)

Recommended to us by a friend, we were shocked at the results. If you want to achieve tighter skin and close down those pores, then apply this twice a week.

How to make it:

  • 2 tbsp Rice Flour
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1 Disprin crushed
  • 1 tbsp Besan
  • 1 tbsp Yoghurt
  • Dash of Rose Water

Mix all ingredients in a bowl till it forms a paste. Apply to clean face, wait ten minutes and re-apply another layer. Let it stay another ten minutes and then gently scrub it off with water.

2. Oatmeal and vinegar mask

This mask will do wonders for you if you have oily skin. Apply once a week.

How to make it:

  • 3 tablespoons of oatmeal
  • ¼ cup of hot water
  • 1 teaspoon of honey
  • 1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar

Wash your face with warm water to allow the pores to open up and remove and makeup. Pour the hot water onto your oatmeal and then combine it with honey. At the end, mix the vinegar and apply the mask while it is still warm. Rinse off after 15 minutes and then wash your face with cold water.

3. Citrus avocado mask

Avocados are somewhat an underdog of the fruit family with so many benefits. This mask is great for evening out pigmentation and adding a glow to your face. Apply twice a week


How to make it:

  • ½ of an avocado, mashed
  • ½ of a lemon, juiced
  • 1 tablespoon of coconut oil

This mask is super refreshing and will leave your face feeling smooth and skin tones evened out. Mix all the ingredients together and apply evenly to your face and neck. Rinse after 15 minutes and moisturize with your daily face cream (preferably NIVEA)

4. Chocolate Coffee Mask

Made from antioxidant-rich cocoa, chocolate has become known for its heart-healthy benefits. These beans are loaded with polyphenols, catechins, and flavonols, a powerful antioxidant that helps protect the skin, increases blood flow to the skin, keeps the skin hydrated and maintains the skin’s elasticity.

How to make it:

  • 1 tsp of instant coffee
  • 1 tsp of cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp of honey
  • Plain yogurt (enough to make a smooth paste)

Sounds appetizing right? But don’t stuff your face just yet! Combine all ingredients and spread your mixture evenly on your clean, dry face. Avoid your eyes, eyebrows, hairline and lips when you apply your mask and keep it on for 15 minutes before washing it off to reveal more beautiful skin.

These Pakistani models are endorsing makeup free look and we totally agree with their idea of being comfortable with one’s flaws having no fear of using a concealer or a lipstick.

A few months back, Sonam Kapoor posted a picture of her face without makeup embracing her flaws with a total grace and confidence. It looks like, being confident without makeup is now a new trend as we see many people posting their bare faces and preaching the new concept of self love.

Now that Ramzan is here, all the bludgers out there (including us) would find a way to stay away from the hassle of getting ready and putting a lot of makeup. So, this is the perfect time that our models and actors are giving the right vibes full of self acceptance by putting their makeup free faces on instagram. And guess what, we are totally loving it!!
