A Day Of SkinCare DIY With Laila Cadne || Easy DIY Face Scrub & Mask

Homemade face mask and scrub recipe collage graphics for Cassie Daves blog postSometime during the weekend, I hooked up with my friend Laila who is a pro MUA/Beauty blogger to talk skin care, and shoot an outfit post. We also ended up having a day filled with skin care DIY and whipped together a homemade face mask and scrub.

DIY projects are so much fun! Especially when you get to do it with someone else. Getting together with Laila to do this was really exciting for me because I had just run out of my face scrub and I got to leave with my own budget-friendly and equally effective homemade face mask and scrub as a replacement.

Everything turned out so perfectly that I figured it would be a crime if I didn’t share this winning formula with Y’all.

I’m forever on the quest for natural skin care products – you might know this if you’re a regular here. I talked about going natural with my skin care routine in this post and also my experience with black soaps here.

There are probably a million and one homemade face mask and scrub formulas on the internet but I decided to go with Laila’s formula because I could see first hand the effect it has had on her own skin and I was impressed!

DIY Brown Sugar And Honey Face Scrub.

Brown sugar helps to exfoliate the skin (remove the dead surface skin cells), together with Lemon juice which is a key component of this scrub. Lemon is rich in vitamin C and citric acid, both of which can help brighten dark spots and tone your skin for that healthy glow. Honey, on the other hand, hydrates the skin and has antimicrobial qualities

Easy right?!


In case you’re wondering how you would measure the proportions to use – Honestly, it’s up to you and just like it is with cooking, you’ll know just whats enough as you go along. But we used just one half of the lemon and 8 cubes of the brown sugar as you can see. The consistency wasn’t super thick but If you want yours thicker, you can always add more brown sugar to it.


DIY Turmeric Face Mask.

The turmeric and honey face mask is a pretty easy one. I already stated the benefits of honey in the scrub recipe. Turmeric like honey, also contains antioxidants and anti-inflammatory components that help in brightening scars and toning the skin. It slows the growth of facial hair, controls oily skin and also helps with acne.

What You’ll Need:

Laila’s friend was eager to try out our DIY face scrub and mask, so we turned her to our model and she could also feel a difference in her skin immediately after use.

I’ve been using the scrub specifically for a while and I can attest to how effective it is. My face always feels smoother and softer every time, so much that I’ve been going around asking people to feel how soft my skin is. lol

Are you into skin care DIYs? Do you have any formula you already use or would you be trying this soon?
