There's no need to spend a lot of money on expensive skincare products when you can make great DIY versions at home!

This luxurious DIY green tea face mask is one of the easiest beauty products to make yourself. And you will love how it treats your skin. We've used real ingredients to create a face mask that moisturizes and exfoliates, while fighting acne and redness. Plus, you probably have everything you need already in your pantry. Talk about a win!

So, sit back, get comfy, and make your own spa day at home with this easy DIY green tea face mask.

Let's talk about the good-for-you-ingredients and their benefits.

Green Tea: This superfood is bursting with antioxidants that are great for your skin. Additionally, caffeine reduces puffiness, giving you skin that is firm and refreshed.

Oatmeal: It's not just for breakfast! This pantry staple is moisturizing, cleansing, and helps relieve dry skin. Whether your skin is dry from winter winds or sandy shores, oatmeal will help with the recovery.

Honey: This is another skincare hero that we love to use in DIY face masks. It's anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial, which is bad news for acne and good news for you! Like the oatmeal, honey will also help moisturize your skin.

Materials List

DIY Green Tea Face Mask

This face mask makes enough for one use, so you don't have to worry about storing leftovers. Like most skincare products, avoid using this face mask on broken or sunburnt skin.

To Make the Mask

  1. Gather your ingredients. Use scissors to snip open the tea bag and empty the contents into a small bowl.

  2. Add the tea and oats to your food processor. Process for about 5 seconds until the mixture is finely chopped. A few larger pieces of oats here and there are fine.

  3. Transfer green tea mixture to a small bowl and add your honey.

  4. Stir to combine until you have a thick paste. If the mixture is a little too thick, add a splash of water to smooth it out.

To Use

Note that it's always a good idea to test any new beauty product on a small amount of skin first just in case it causes a reaction.

  1. Rinse your face with warm water and pat dry.

  2. Apply the mask to your face, avoiding the eye area.

  3. Relax and let the mask sit for 5-10 minutes.

  4. Gently wash your face with warm water and pat to dry. Admire your glowing skin!

Good to Know: Is Raw Honey Better Than Regular for Skincare?

Short answer: Yes!

Don't worry, we'll give you the long answer too.

Some of the best benefits of honey for skincare come from its vitamins, antioxidants, and antibacterial properties. When you think about it, the stuff has to be pretty nutritious if it can keep bees thriving even in the middle of winter!

However, heavy processing strips out most of those nutrients and antioxidants. After rounds of heating and filtering, the good stuff just can't survive. And so it doesn't make it onto your skin (or into your food).

So, for your best DIY skincare experience, look for raw and organic honey! Learn more about raw honey here, including what to look for to ensure that your honey is the right stuff.
