Basking in a mask.

Basking in a mask.

The only thing bigger than my obsession with makeup is my obsession with skincare. My favorite thing at the moment are sheet masks. I find that it’s simple and pretty cheap to make them using plain masks. Below are mixtures I use to target different skincare concerns. Before you do any of these, test a couple drops on the back of your hand and then wait for 24 hours to make sure the ingredients are not irritating to your skin. Also, if you have any allergies to any of the ingredients DO NOT put it on your face! You can always adjust the recipes to fit your preferences.

What you’ll need:


*The cool thing about making your own sheet mask, is that they are completely customizable. You can soak your sheet mask in so many different combinations of ingredients. Sometimes I just use toner, but usually I mix up a concoction to treat whatever is troubling my skin. I love making I love doing this because I can use the extra liquid to spritz on throughout the day. Here are the steps for making three of my favorite targeting liquids.

Recipe One: Refreshing
This is my go-to when I’ve just pulled an all-nighter. Rosewater brightens up my face and also smells super good. I use grapeseed oil in all of my masks because it moisturizes but doesn’t leave my face feeling too greasy.

What you’ll need:

  • Four ounces of rose water
  • One teaspoon of grapeseed oil
  • 10 drops of rosehip oil

Recipe Two: Hydrating
Whenever my skin feels Sahara desert dry, I use this mask to get some moisture into my skin. Coconut water provides heavy-duty hydration while olive oil seals it all in.

What you’ll need:

  • Four ounces of coconut water
  • One quarter teaspoon of melted coconut oil
  • One teaspoon of grapeseed oil
  • Half a teaspoon of olive oil

Recipe Three: Calming
The first thing I do when I see any sign of stress in my skin is slap on this mask. It’s like a calming cup of tea, but for your face. Tea tree oil works wonders for acne prone skin, and chamomile tea soothes.

What you’ll need:

  • Four ounces of chamomile tea
  • A squirtle of honey
  • 10 drops of tea tree oil
  • One teaspoon of grapeseed oil

How to do it:

Step one:


Whichever recipe you’re using, start by mixing all ingredients together in a bowl. Then, take the plain sheet mask and soak it in the targeting liquid until it’s saturated.

Step two:


Apply the mask on a clean face and spray more liquid if it’s not sticking to your face enough. Let it sit for about 15 minutes, then peel the mask off and rub any leftover liquid on your neck.

Step three:


Store the excess liquid in a spray bottle and spray to wake up dull-feeling skin!


And that’s it! Step back and admire subsequent face glowiness! ♦
