Buying a weekly face mask from the shops can add up and start to break the bank over time. As a student, I don’t have that kind of budget to spend on my skin and I can’t really justify using my student loan to cover them.

But with the left over ingredients lying around in the kitchen and the fruit you can’t be bothered to eat you can make your own face mask suited to your skin.

Here are six easy to make face masks…

1. For Dry Skin

Carrot and Avocado Mask

This mask is full of moisturising agents to aid dry skin. You will need one carrot, half an avocado, one tbsp of honey, half tbsp of oil, one tsp of lemon juice and one egg yolk. This may seem like a weighty list, but long-lasting results will make it worthwhile.

2. For Oily Skin

Banana Mask

Use one banana and two tbsp of honey. For an extra boost add an orange or lemon. This will sooth the skin, leaving it soft rather than oily.
