3 DIY Face Masks (for kids)

3 DIY Face Masks (for kids)

Posted by Little Mash on

It's never too early to teach kids how to take care of their skin, so why not treat them to their very own face mask! Each mask is made from simple kitchen ingredients and can be whipped up within minutes - your little one will be thrilled to join you for a fun pamper night.

Oatmeal Mask
I have been making this mask for years and it is definitely a favourite - my daughter thinks it is hilarious putting 'porridge' on her face.

Ingredients:
1 tbsp colloidal oatmeal
1 tbsp plain yogurt
1/2 tbsp honey

Preparation:
1. To make colloidal oatmeal, put raw uncooked oats into a blender, coffee grinder or food processor. Grind the oats until they have the consistency of flour. Pour oatmeal into a small bowl and stir in the yogurt and honey creating a paste. Let stand for 5 minutes
2. Cleanse face with warm water. While skin is still damp, apply mixture to the face avoiding the eyes and mouth
3. Leave on for 10-15 minutes
4. Remove paste with lukewarm water and a washcloth

Chocolate Mask
Impress your guests at your next slumber party with this chocolate mask - so fun (but not very tasty, sorry)!

Ingredients:
1 tbsp plain flour
1 tsp cocoa powder
1 tsp honey
Milk

Preparation:
1. Mix the flour, cocoa and honey in a small bowl. Add enough milk to form a thick paste
2. Cleanse face with warm water. While skin is still damp, apply mixture to the face avoiding the eyes and mouth
3. Leave on for 10-15 minutes
4. Remove with lukewarm water and a washcloth

Avocado Mask
A crowd favourite, you can't go wrong with the classic avo mask.

Ingredients:
1/2 ripe avocado
1 tsp plain yogurt
1 tsp honey

Preparation:
1. Blend or mash the avocado until smooth. Stir in the yogurt and honey until you form a paste
2. Cleanse face with warm water. While skin is still damp, apply mixture to the face avoiding the eyes and mouth
3. Leave on for 10-15 minutes
4. Remove paste with lukewarm water and a washcloth
