Individuals who want to make their own facial masks can use ingredients they find in their kitchen cupboards. Facial masks as simple as mashed-up banana and honey can improve the complexion.

One popular homemade facial mask involves mashing up a banana with a teaspoon of honey. Adjust the quantity in accordance with the surface area the mask needs to cover. After making it, spread it liberally across the face and leave it in place for 20 minutes. Rinse away with cool water.

Alternatively, mixing powdered milk with enough water to make a thick paste produces a mask that makes the face feel fresh. After leaving it on long enough to dry, rinse it away with warm water.

When feeling tired and in need of a mask that perks up the skin, turn to oatmeal. Combine 1/2 cup of warm water with 1/3 cup of oatmeal and leave it until it thickens. Add in other ingredients, like a teaspoon of yogurt or honey. Smooth a thin layer over the face and leave it for 15 minutes, before rinsing it away with warm water.

Individuals who have whole egg mayonnaise in their fridge can smear a layer of it over their face and allow it to settle for 20 minutes before washing it away. Mayonnaise soothes the skin, leaving it feeling clean.
