The Best DIY Face Masks To Get Rid Of Wrinkles

There’s absolutely no need to spend money on expensive products to keep your skin looking firm and fresh—all you need is your kitchen pantry. We’ve rounded up five of the best DIY anti-wrinkle face masks that you’re sure to love.

For best results, apply these masks at least one or twice a week. A single mask usually takes about 5 to 30 minutes, but you can always leave them on overnight for better results.

1. Nourishing Egg Mask.


What it does: Raw eggs are incredibly nourishing for your skin. The water and fat content in egg yolks make it a natural water-binding agent while the protein-rich egg white can help tighten the skin. With an egg mask, you not only get rid of wrinkles, you lock in moisture too. This makes eggs great for erasing fine lines and achieving a youthful glow.

What you need: 1 Egg

What to do:

1. Beat the egg until the egg yolk and the egg white are mixed together.
2. Apply the mixture to the face and leave it on until it dries.
3. Wash it all off with lukewarm water.

2. Moisturizing Avocado and Honey Mask.


What it does: Wrinkles are not only caused by age, they’re also caused by dryness. And guess what dryness’ greatest adversary is? Moisture. This avocado and honey mask is perfect for giving your skin the moisture surge it deserves. Avocados are rich in fats and vitamins that evens out your skin and boosts its moisture content. With its humectant properties, the honey binds the newly-produced moisture to your skin. Together, they rejuvenate and smoothen your skin, and promote collagen production. Here’s a pro-tip: warming the honey will cause the mask to penetrate even deeper into your skin.

What you need: 1/2 ripe avocado, 1 tablespoon of honey

What to do:

1. Remove the skin from the avocado and cut it into pieces.
2. Mash the avocado with a fork or a potato masher. Unless you like it chunky, mash until you’re left with a smooth and creamy consistency.
3. Add 1 tablespoon of honey to your avocado mix.
4. Spread the avocado and honey concoction on your face and leave it on for 15 to 30 minutes.
5. Wash the mask off with lukewarm water.

3. Vitamin Rich Aloe Vera and Vitamin E Mask.


What it does: Aloe Vera’s healing properties are well documented. For over a thousand years, it’s become a natural remedy for almost anything—including treating wrinkles. Its vitamins and minerals help to hydrate, restore, and smoothen skin. Mix this with vitamin E and you’ve got a skin care recipe for the gods.

What you need: Aloe Vera gel, Pure Vitamin E oil

What to do:

1. Place a teaspoon of aloe vera gel into a mixing bowl. Feel free to add more if you feel that a teaspoon is inadequate.
2. Add 2-3 drops of vitamin E oil.
3. Stir well until the gel and the oil blend together.
4. Wash your face with lukewarm water to open the pores.
5. Paint the resulting mix to your face and let it sit for 30 minutes before washing it off with water.

4. Banana Yogurt Mask.

The lactic acid in milk softens and peels off dead cells while unsweetened cocoa powder has properties that hydrate the skin. Not only that, pure cocoa firms and tones your skin too! Make sure to use pure, unsweetened cocoa powder. As for milk, we recommend skim or 2% milk but you can opt for other types as well.
