Homemade Cleansing Facial Masks for ALL Skin Types

DIY Cleansing Facial Masks
Hello Everyone,
I’m the beauty blogger behind “Beauty expression by Luchessa”. Based in Germany, with a big passion for makeup, traveling, languages and different cultures. It’s a pleasure to meet you.
We all live in a hectic fast moving world and from time to time our body and soul need a time out. So does our skin, as it’s the largest organ of our body and has to be taken care of in especially loving way.
What I like to do is to pamper myself with homemade scrubs, hair masks and facials – not only on weekends, but at least ones during the week as well.
Today I would like to share with you three cleansing face masks for different skin types. Obviously I used only one of them myself and did the other two on my best friends a few times. (Besides having a rich smelling face masks applied by someone else, immediately gives you this special relaxing effect, don’t you find?!)

Cleansing mask for normal skin.


Homemade Cleansing Facial Mask
Ingredients: 2 tablespoons of plain yogurt, 1 tablespoon of honey, 1 egg white, half of an avocado made into puree.
(If you rather have normal to sensitive skin, you can simply exchange the egg white for 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil or walnut oil, as I did this time – it will do wonders for your face! Smooth and silky finish.)Yogurt contains milk acid, that helps to get rid of the dead skin. Honey has an antibacterial and moisturizing effect and avocado gives your skin a deep hydration and silky feel. The egg white puts a thin film over your skin, which takes all the bacteria, additional sebum and other impurities away, when you wash the mask off again.
How to: Mix all the ingredients together, until you reach a light green completely smooth consistency. (Keep in mind to use a really soft avocado, to get a much better & smoother result, as I did. Unfortunatelly I had only a hard avocado at home…)
Put the mask on your face and leave it for about 15 minutes. Rinse it off with cool water.
2 Additional Homemade Cleansing Facial Masks

Cleansing mask for dry skin.

Ingredients: Half of banana, half of avocado, teaspoon honey, teaspoon olive oil.
These fruits will have a deep hydrating effect on your skin, while the olive oil not only hydrates, but also gives a soft cleansing effect.

How to: Mix avocado and banana to a smooth consistency, add your honey and olive oil and apply the mix on your face.
Leave the mask on for about 20 minutes and rinse it off.

If your face feels a bit oily afterwards, I simply recommend to touch up with a paper towel and leave your skin absorbing the rest.
Cleansing mask for oily skin. 

Ingredients: 2-3 strawberries, half of small papaya and egg white. (You can easily exchange the strawberries for black grapes, work very similar.)
Strawberries contain Salicylic acid, which helps to fight against the pimples and blackheads, papaya is great for keeping the additional sebum to the minimum and the egg white as already mentioned before, will help in this combination to deep clean your skin.

How to: Prepare a smooth consistency of papaya and the strawberries and mix in the egg white.
If your skin is very oily, you can even add a few drops of a fresh lemon.
Apply it all on your skin for about 15 minutes and rinse off with cool water. This mask is great for making it ones or maybe twice a week, but not more often, since you don’t want to irritate your skin. (mostly because of the strawberries and lemon). 

I hope today you discovered something new to try for your next home spa day.
