Summertime is a blessing and a curse for our skin. On the one hand, the sunlight can help our skin to feel rejuvenated and can, in some cases, help to clear up acne-prone skin. But, on the other hand, sunscreen can cause us to break out, and excess sweat on a hot summer day can also put our skin under distress. So whether you’re breaking out, have dry skin, or simply need a little refresh, check out these DIY facemasks!

Try this Facemask If You Have:

Dry Skin

Dry skin can be frustrating and just plain uncomfortable! If you suffer from dry skin, try making this avocado facemask by Everyday Health. All you need is an avocado, one tablespoon of olive oil, and one tablespoon of honey. Apply the mask to your face, and relax for 15 to 20 minutes before washing it off.

Oily Skin

Oily skin is bothersome no matter the time of year, but it can be especially noticeable in the summer. With all the sunscreen and sweat our face endures, it can cause those who typically have oily skin to feel even shinier than usual. Try one of these facemasks for oily skin by Style Caster. Combine orange, yogurt, and honey! The acidity of the orange can help to combat fine lines and wrinkles while controlling oil.

Break-out Prone Skin

Whether you get the occasional pimple here and there or seem to break out all the time, try this facemask to combat acne! While severe acne often requires additional methods, this facemask can help with smaller breakouts. All you need is turmeric and honey! According to Healthline, turmeric can help reduce inflammation in the skin, while honey is naturally antibacterial. Both of which can help soothe the skin and prevent future breakouts.

Sensitive Skin

If you’re looking to make your skin glow but have traditionally sensitive skin, you’re in luck. This facemask by Elle is sure to do the trick, and your skin will be radiant in no time. All you need is 1 tablespoon of cacao powder, 1/4 of a papaya, and a bit of aloe vera gel. Aloe vera is full of properties that soothe and boost the skin, and papaya is a great exfoliant! Apply this to your face, relax for ten minutes, and then gently remove.

There’s no better way to wrap up a long day than by relaxing with a facemask. No matter your skin type, one of these DIY facemasks is perfect for you! So light a candle, put your mask on, and relax.
