Beauty masks are a great way to revive your skin and hair and come packed with all the ingredients to smooth, soften and hydrate tired locks, put a glow back into your complexion and give weary hands the pampering they deserve.

Beauty masks can be bought online or at any supermarket or department store, and like hair products or skin cleansers, come in all different brands, types and at all kinds of prices. What’s right for you should depend on your skin and hair type and not your budget. If you don’t know what type of skin or hair you have then give our Skin Type Consultation and Know Your Hair Texture and Elasticity Consultation a try.

For those looking for a cheap or chemical free alternative to store bought beauty masks, here a few masks that you can make up at home using all natural products straight from your own kitchen.


This hair mask is great for reviving hair that’s been damaged by everyday wear and tear and over styling.

What you’ll need:

  • 1 banana.
  • 1 egg.
  • 3 tablespoons of honey.
  • 3 tablespoons of milk.
  • 5 tablespoons of olive oil.

Method: Mix all the ingredients together and then smooth over your hair and leave for 15-30 minutes before shampooing out.


Use this easy, two ingredient face mask to smooth your skin and inject some moisture.

What you’ll need:

  • 2 tablespoons of plain yoghurt.
  • 2 egg whites.

Method: Mix the egg whites and yoghurt together in a bowl and then apply to your face and allow the mask to dry (your skin should tighten up) while you relax with your feet up. Next, rinse your face with warm water until all traces of the mask has been removed. For best results, use this mask as part of a facial routine.

When it comes to beauty treatments we often forget about our hands. Use this hand mask to exfoliate, soften and moisturize your skin.

What you’ll need:

  • 1 and a 1/2 tablespoons of oatmeal.
  • 1 tablespoon of warm water.
  • 1 teaspoon of olive oil.
  • 1 teaspoon of lemon juice.
  • 1 teaspoon of glycerine.

Method: Combine all ingredients and then massage into your hands and leave for 10 minutes before rinsing off with warm water. For a concentrated treatment, apply the hand mask and then pop on some cotton gloves before bedtime and then wash your hands (and the gloves) the next morning. The same mask and method can also be used on your feet. For extra hand and feet pampering, check out our beauty articles, 6 Simple Steps to a DIY Manicure and 6 Simple Steps to a DIY Pedicure.
