Should you be trying face masks? Absolutely. Face masks are the perfect skin care treatment to help you with your skin care concerns. The right face mask can help hydrate skin, remove excess oils and help improve the appearance of your pores. They’re also an excellent way to help pull out impurities. Another advantage of wearing a face mask: the feeling of being pampered like you’re at a spa from the comfort of your own home.

Here's a list of DIY face masks that are incredibly easy, with ingredients you probably already have at home.

The Vinegar Toner and Face Mask

What you'll need:

- Water

- Apple Cider Vinegar

How:

To make a toner, after you wash your face, mix 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar with 2 cups water as a finishing rinse to cleanse and tighten your skin.

You can also create a face mask by mixing 1/4 cup cider vinegar with 1/4 cup water. Gently apply the solution to your face and let it dry.

Oat Meal Face Mask:

Whats you'll need:

- Water

- Oatmeal

- 1 egg

- Plain Yogurt

- Honey

How:

Combine 1/2 cup hot (not boiling) water and 1/3 cup oatmeal. After the water and oatmeal have settled for two or three minutes, mix in 2 tablespoons plain yogurt, 2 tablespoons honey, and 1 small egg white. Apply a thin layer of the mask to your face, and let it sit for 10 to 15 minutes. Then rinse with warm water.

Yogurt Face Mask:

What you'll need:

- Yogurt

- Orange slices

- Aloe

How:

Mix 1 teaspoon plain yogurt with the juice from 1/4 slice of orange, some of the orange pulp, and 1 teaspoon aloe. Leave the mixture on your face for at least five minutes before rinsing it off.

Lemon Face Mask:

What you'll need:

- Lemons

- Olive oil or almond oil

How:

Mix the juice from 1 lemon with 1/4 cup olive oil or sweet almond oil.

Home Peel Off Mask:

What you'll need:

- Lemon

- Egg

How:

Squeeze out 1 teaspoon of fresh lemon juice into a mixed egg white. Whisk the mixture thoroughly. Apply the mask on clean skin using a clean makeup brush. Press a tissue paper on top of the first coat. Apply another layer of the mask. The tissue paper will keep the mask intact. Once the mask is completely dry, slowly peel it off. The blackheads and dirt will tag along with the tissue paper. Wash your skin with lukewarm water and pat dry.
