Aloe vera is a plant that’s rich in vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B6, B12, C, and E, which makes it a great ingredient for homemade face masks. While aloe isn’t a miracle cure for all skin conditions, it can help to make your skin more vibrant, reduce inflammation and blemishes, moisturize, and reduce signs of aging. When applying an aloe mask, use a thick brush to spread an even layer of the mixture over your forehead, cheeks, chin, and nose. After letting the mixture sit for several minutes, rinse it off with cold water. Experiment with different face masks and see which one works best for you!

Creating a Refreshing Mask

  1. Mix papaya, cacao powder, and aloe vera to create glowing skin. Cut a papaya into quarters and peel away the outer layer. Add the fruit into a small bowl, along with 1 tbsp (7.4 g) of cacao powder and a grape-sized amount of aloe vera gel. Using a fork or spoon, mash and mix the ingredients together until they form a smooth paste.1
    • You can use this mask whenever you want.
    • Papaya makes your skin look glowing, and can help get rid of acne.
  2. Reduce acne with a turmeric, aloe gel, and honey mask. Stir 1 tablespoon (15 mL) each of aloe gel and raw, liquid honey together in a small bowl. Once these ingredients are thoroughly combined, mix in 1 tsp (3.2 g) of turmeric powder. Continue stirring until there are no visible powder lumps within the mask mixture.
    • Turmeric is a great remedy for inflamed skin, while honey is known for its antibacterial and antifungal qualities.
  3. Soothe your skin by making a mask with matcha, aloe gel, and bentonite clay. Scoop 1 tablespoon (14.8 ml) (9 g) of bentonite clay powder into a small bowl, then pour in 1 teaspoon (4.9 mL) of water or so, until the clay becomes a paste. Next, mix in 1 tablespoon (15 mL) of aloe vera gel with 1 tsp (1.75 g) of matcha powder. Continue stirring these ingredients together in a bowl until they form a thick, consistent paste.
    • Bentonite clay is especially beneficial for oily skin, while matcha powder helps to fight skin inflammation.
  4. Make your skin look vibrant with coffee, sugar, and aloe gel. Scoop 2 tablespoons (30 mL) of aloe vera gel, 1 tsp (3 g) of coffee grounds, and 1 tsp (4 g) of white sugar into a small bowl. Next, stir the ingredients together until they form a smooth, consistent gel-like mixture.
    • The graininess of the coffee grounds can exfoliate your skin.

Applying the Aloe Mask

  1. Wash your skin with cleanser and exfoliant. Using the cleanser of your choice, clean off any oils, dirt, and cosmetics from your cheeks, forehead, nose, chin, and under eye area. Next, rub a cherry-sized amount of exfoliant onto your skin to clear away any dead skin cells. After this, you can rinse off the exfoliating product with lukewarm water.
    • Don’t exfoliate every day; instead, do it about 3 times each week. If your skin is especially acne-prone, you can exfoliate every day.
  2. Take a shower to open up your pores. Before applying any aloe masks to your skin, unwind by taking a hot, steaming shower. Stay there for several minutes, so your pores can naturally open up. This way, your skin will be more receptive to the mask!
  3. Brush the mixture over your skin. Dip a 1 in (2.5 cm) wide makeup brush into the mask. After coating the brush completely, spread the mixture along your cheeks, forehead, chin, and nose. As you go, try to apply the mixture in an even layer.
    • If your hands are clean, you can also apply the mask using your fingers.
  4. Leave the mask on your face for 10 minutes. Set a timer for 10 minutes and relax while the mask soaks into your skin. Try not to lose track of time—if you leave the mixture on your skin for too long, it might be difficult to rinse off later.
    • You need to keep the mask on for several minutes for your skin to benefit from the nutrients.
  5. Rinse off your face with cold water. Use your hands to splash cold water across your skin. As you work, use gentle motions to clear the mixture off of your skin. If you’d prefer, you can also use a soaked bath tissue to dab away the mixture.
    • Cold water helps your pores to close and absorb the nutrients from the mask.
