10 DIY Edible Face Masks

It’s been a long winter, and all of that cold Canadian air can leave even dewy skin feeling dull, dry and completely rundown. So what’s a gal or guy to do? Sure, you could go out and spend heaps of money on a fancy face mask filled with manufactured ingredients, or you could go the DIY route and concoct a fantastic mask with stuff you probably already have in your kitchen.

In fact, most of the masks we’ve found are so clean and natural you could even eat them – if things like tomato juice and milk are your jam, of course. If they’re not, we recommend sticking to at-home facials to tackle tons of skin problems, from a tired complexion to acne and everything in between.

MILK + TOMATO JUICE

If you’re looking to brighten your overall skin tone, milk and tomato juice will do the trick. Tomato is a natural skin lightener, which may give yours a more youthful glow. Meanwhile, milk is loaded with hydrating properties. For a winning combination, apply two tablespoons of milk mixed with one tablespoon of tomato juice.

BANANA + ORANGE JUICE + HONEY

If you don’t have any tomato juice on hand but still want to brighten up your complexion, mix half a ripe, mashed banana with a tablespoon of orange juice and a tablespoon of honey. Bananas contain vitamins E and C along with potassium and natural moisture, all of which can do wonders for the skin.

ALOE VERA + TURMERIC

Not all of us are challenged with dry skin; some of us have oily skin that we’re constantly trying to tame. If that sounds like you, whip up a mask of aloe vera (two tablespoons) and turmeric (one teaspoon) to help get things under control. We all know that aloe has soothing properties (hello, sunburns!) while turmeric is a natural anti-inflammatory.
