Face-masks are not only a great way to get back your glow after a year of on and off lockdowns and sun-deprivation, but making your own and taking the time to look after yourself is therapeutic for the mind too.

To round up what is to come, we have put together three recipes, all dependant on how you would like your skin to feel. The ingredients are easy to source… bonus points if you select organic and responsibly sourced versions of them.




Nourish sensitive or dry skin: Honey is known as a humectant meaning it will work with the avocado to hydrate and lock the moisture into your skin, meanwhile anti-oxidising blueberries help to repair the skin and oats gently soothe.


  • 4 tbsp Honey
  • A handful of blueberries
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp ground oats


  • Smash the blueberries with a fork or blender
  • Grind the oats in a blender
  • Stir in the honey, ground oats and coconut oil and mix together until a paste is formed (if its too runny add more oats)



Brightening, refreshing and rejuvenating. This cooling enzymic concoction will exfoliate away dead skin and grime. This one’s especially effective for those living in the city, it will blast away pollution that your skin has been exposed to in the day and get your face glowing and sparkling clean. Kaolin clay will draw impurities and dirt from your pores whilst lemon breaks down dirt and the cucumber cools and hydrates to make your skin glow.


  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • A squeeze of fresh lemon juice
  • Quarter a cucumber
  • Kaolin clay powder


  • Blend the cucumber into a liquid.
  • Mix in the lemon, kaolin clay and sugar and mix to make a paste.



If you’re in a mental slump, most likely so is your skin. Coffee grounds are stimulating for the skin whilst the aroma provides you with an uplifting and warming atmosphere. This one’s a deep cleanse – coffee grounds scrub away the dead skin whilst coconut oil and humectant honey collaborate to hydrate and lock in the moisture to give your skin some bounce and vitality.


  • Coffee grounds (used from machine or French press)
  • Coconut oil
  • Honey
  • Cocoa powder
  • Unsweetened oat milk


  • Blend together the coconut oil, honey, milk, and cocoa powder.
  • Mix in the coffee grounds.
