7 Homemade Summer Skin Mask Recipes for All Skin Types
1. Homemade Tomato Skin Mask for Blackheads
Tomatoes contain natural acids that clear blackheads, lighten and tone the skin, after a simple application. One cannot imagine something simpler and more effective. This is why, this summer skin mask recipe is one of the best homemade skin masks you can make and use this summer.
- one large ripe tomato
Cut a large, well-ripened tomato into thin slices. Lie down on the bed and apply the tomato slices all over your face. After 15 minutes, rinse with lukewarm water and pad dry your face with an absorbent towel without rubbing. Do not apply any kind of face cream for at least two hours.
2. Homemade Peach Skin Mask for Dry or Normal Skin
A ripe peach is one of the best summer skin masks for all skin types, especially dry and normal skin. The reason is that peaches are highly hydrating and loaded with antioxidants such as beta-carotene, and leave the skin smooth and shiny.
Mix the peach puree with the cream, then add the flour, and mix well. Spread the mask on your face and leave it on for 30 minutes, then wash off with cold water. There is another version of this summer skin mask. Peel and cut two very well-ripened peaches, and puree them in a small glass or porcelain bowl (never in a metal bowl). Combine the crushed peaches with 2-3 spoons of yogurt. Use this face mask the same way.

7. Homemade Skin Mask for All Skin Types with Sunflower Seeds
Sunflower seeds are rich in vitamin E, oils, and lecithin and, together with the nutrients from honey and oil, make an exceptional natural skin care product. We recommend this skin mask for all skin types. Instead of honey, you can opt for egg yolk or fresh cream for variation.
- a handful of sunflower seeds, hulled
- one teaspoon of wildflower honey
- one teaspoon of sunflower oil, cold pressed
Grind the sunflower seeds through a coffee grinder. In order to remove the bigger chunks, sift the ground seeds through a sieve with larger holes. Melt the honey in a little warm water, and mix the liquid with the sunflower seed powder and the oil. If the preparation is too thick, add a little more hot water, until you get a paste that can be easily spread on your face. Apply the face mask and leave it on for half an hour, then rinse it off with warm water.
