The Craze of DIY Face Masks

  By Shahnaz Husain

In earlier times, where were all these beauty treatments and expensive products? Our grandmothers have always taken care of their skin by applying ubtan at home. I remember the first time I used turmeric and gram flour paste, I was surprised to see the glow on my face. Gradually times changed and people started paying attention to face masks. In the last few years, homemade, natural, and herbal face masks have brought a revolution. Today they are becoming an important part of the skin care routine. These face masks give natural, affordable, and effective skincare solutions.

These homemade concoctions, often crafted from kitchen ingredients and potent herbs, have transformed from simple skincare trends into an integral part of holistic beauty routines.

These face masks did not become popular overnight, rather the fact that they were easily accessible made them popular. Social media platforms and a community of beauty influencers have also contributed to its popularity. Today, the fast-paced life and deteriorating environment have increased its need. The way the poison dissolved in the air has started attacking our skin, these DIY masks are better than expensive and chemical-laden products. Benefits like removing natural oil from our skin, reducing dullness of face, hydration and instant glow have made it so popular.

Accessibility Made DIY Face Masks Popular

It would not be bad if you call this the appeal of DIY masks. In the early days of my career, I also wanted to introduce people to such options that would take care of them in the long run. That’s why I turned my attention to herbal, natural, and Ayurvedic beauty and skin care. Things obtained from nature do not harm you. The most important thing is that these things are easily available around you. From your kitchen to the nearest grocery store, you can find herbs and ingredients that make them affordable and approachable. This democratization of beauty rituals aligns with the broader trend of embracing simplicity and natural remedies.

Evolution of DIY Face Masks

You might remember, your grandmother often used to make decoctions and face masks for you using ingredients like turmeric, gram flour, curd, honey and cucumber. But with time, these DIY face masks also changed a lot. Today you can see many formulations of face masks. A wide range of natural ingredients are available in the market today. Made from exotic fruits, superfoods and herbal remedies, these face masks are known to take care of your skin. Not only this, but today there is a different DIY face mask for catering to diverse skin care needs.

The DIY face mask trend has seamlessly integrated with technology, with countless blogs, YouTube channels, and social media accounts dedicated to sharing recipes, application techniques, and before-and-after results. This digital era has fostered a global community of beauty enthusiasts exchanging insights and experiences, driving the evolution of DIY skincare.

You can create a new face mask by changing its ingredients according to the specific skin concern. Whether combating acne, addressing dryness, or promoting anti-aging effects, the DIY approach empowers users to personalize their skincare routines like never before.
