Face masks from shops are usually amazing. But they can be pricey!! So, sometimes, you need to know how to make your own. And, if you have dry skin, you'll need one at least every week!! So, if you have dry skin, and you need to make your own face mask, from things in your store cupboard, read on....


  1. Applying a face mask is all about preparation. If you prepare your skin, it will look 10x times better than a face mask alone.
  2. Wash your face thoroughly with warm soapy water.
  3. Apply some sort of cleanser, made especially for dry skin. You can buy cleansers at your local supermarket, but keep in mind that you do get what you pay for! You can buy creams, liquids, wipes (beware, these aren't very good, and won't thoroughly cleanse your face). Wipe off your cleanser with cotton wool.
  4. Exfoliate your face, with an exfoliator, made especially for dry skin. Make sure this is a face exfoliator, not a body exfoliator - it's not gentle enough and will make your skin flaky and sore. Wash off exfoliator.
  5. If you have sensitive skin, move to Step 7; if not, go to the next step.
  6. Grab a towel, and a heat-proof bowel. Fill the bowel with boiling water, then place your face on top on the water, catching the steam, but not touching the water with any of your face. Place the towel over your head, and the bowel, to catch more steam. This cleans your pores. Steam your face for 5 minutes.
  7. You are now ready to start making your mask. Grab a banana, a tablespoon of mayonnaise, Bran or Weetabix, an egg, and some milk.
  8. Mash the banana. Bananas are amazing for dry skin, holding special chemicals in them.
  9. Add the mayonnaise, the egg, and the milk. You should be left with a thin creamy texture.
  10. Add the Bran, (or if using Weetabix, shred it, then add) until you have a thick, and grainy texture.
  11. Smother the mixture onto your face generously.
  12. Relax and leave the face mask on for 30 minutes. It needs longer than most, because there aren't any harsh chemicals that will react with your skin if left on for too long.
  13. Wash off the face mask with warm water.
  14. Moisturize your skin with a moisturizer made for dry skin.
