As a new mother, you barely get enough sleep so getting time to go to the spa seems like a distant dream!

But there’s always a brighter side to life (of course having a baby is the bright side)! If you can’t go to the spa, you can create your spa at home when your baby takes a nap with some of these homemade face packs.

We’ve brought five extra easy and less time-consuming face masks ideas just for you. These masks will help you look good in just a few minutes and brighten up your day, mood, and skin.

1. Oatmeal and Grapefruit Face Mask:

Oatmeal can be used as a natural cure for dry, itchy, or irritated skin. Ground oatmeal can be used as an exfoliator, removing dirt, oil, and dead skin cells from the skin.

Oatmeal can also be used to cleanse, moisturize, and reduce irritation. On the other hand, Grapefruit changes dull, dehydrated complexions and leaves your face delightfully luminous thanks to the antioxidant Beta Carotene. Grapefruit also includes Lycopene, a pigment that helps to balance out skin tone by reducing redness and inflammation.

  • Prepare a mixture with 1 red grapefruit and 1 cup cooked oatmeal, add 1 cup milk to this mixture since it helps in soothing the skin.
  • Apply the mask to your face and let it sit for about 15-20 minutes.
  • Rinse it off with warm water and apply moisturizer.

2. Carrot & Honey Face Mask:

Carrots can help to protect your skin from UV radiation. Carrots contain beta carotene, a skin-friendly ingredient that the body converts to vitamin A. It aids in the healing of skin tissues while also shielding the skin from damaging UV rays.

Honey is one of nature’s most trusted skin remedial products. It may help oily and acne-prone skin because of its antibacterial and antiseptic properties. Honey is a natural humectant, which means it keeps your skin moist but not oily since humectants take moisture from the skin without replenishing it.

  • Prepare a mixture with 1-2 fresh carrots (ground, juice, lather) and ½ tablespoon of honey.
  • Apply the mask on the face and neck.
  • Let this mask sit on your face for 15 minutes at the most, and wash it off with.
  • cold water to attain naturally glowing skin.


3. Multani Mitti Face Mask:

Multani Mitti protects skin against rashes and sunburn 

The cooling effect of Multani mitti on the skin aids in the fight against dark circles and sun damage. It evens out skin tone, combats tanning and pigmentation, and protects against sunburn, skin rashes, and infections.

  • Prepare a paste with 1-2 spoons of Multani Mitti and ½ tablespoon of rosewater.
  • Apply the mask to your face and neck.
  • Let it sit for no more than 20 minutes and rinse it off after it has dried.
  • The anti-inflammatory qualities of rose water can aid to minimise skin redness, preventing further swelling, and relieving acne pain.
  • This approach is not just ayurvedic and natural, but also safe to be used on all skin types, which is an upside.


4. Baking Soda Face Mask:

Baking soda has antibacterial properties that are good for the skin 


Baking soda offers characteristics that help your skin in collagen production and makes it look younger. It removes all dead skin cells and acts as an exfoliant for your skin.

The antibacterial characteristics found in baking soda aid in the drying of pimples and the prevention of skin breakouts.

  • Prepare a mask with 1 tablespoon of oats (ground, with a flour-like texture and consistency), 1 tablespoon of baking soda, a few dashes of salt, and some warm water.
  • You may want to reduce the quantity of baking soda if your skin is sensitive, otherwise, the product might irritate the skin. Instead, you could increase the quantity of the oats in the same proportion that you’ve decreased the baking soda with.
  • Leave the mask on your face till it hardens and rinses with warm water.
  • Make sure you apply moisturizer at the end.

Potassium and manganese, which are crucial minerals for keeping our skin supple and healthy, are abundant in bananas. Manganese aids in the production of collagen in the human skin. Bananas are high in Vitamin C, which is believed to be good for the skin.

  • Prepare a mixture with 1 mashed banana, 4 tablespoons of honey, and 2 tablespoons of water.
  • Apply the mask to your face and neck.
  • Let it sit for about 20-25 minutes, for the product to seep into your skin, for maximum results.
  • Rinse it off with cold water and don’t forget to moisturize.

The face masks that have been mentioned above are safe to use for all skin types, although precautionary alternatives have been mentioned for skin types that may be a little more sensitive than others.

These face masks can be effectively and efficiently squeezed into a busy schedule to make you look like the glamorous celebrity moms!
