Excessive screen time, litres of wine and a lot more sugar (Lindt bunny, I’m looking at you) are currently sending our skin off-kilter. And while the above definitely hits the sweet spot in terms of lifting morale, it’s worth keeping our skin in check too. Whether it's dry and sensitive or oily and spot-prone, a weekly face mask treatment (just pop it on before a Netflix binge) can really do the world of good. Especially when said face mask can be whipped up with the ingredients in your fridge and can be created in the comfort of your own home. Enter: the DIY face mask.

Thanks to social media and quarantine, A-listers have been serving up an extra dose of their insider beauty tips, tricks and self-care routines. Amongst those, we’ve spotted a variety of DIY face mask recipes from the likes of Hailey Bieber and Adut Akech, which (as you can imagine) filled us with joy. To find out what three ingredients Akech calls upon, keep on scrolling…

Adut Akech’s DIY Face Mask

Earlier this week, supermodel Adut Akech, took to Instagram to share a post of herself robed up donning a yellow mask. The caption read 'Self-care night' and 'Home DIY face mask,' which, of course, triggered an influx of comments requesting the recipe. And Akech delivered. It turns out that the secret to her glowing complexion is a concoction of ingredients that are probably already sat in your kitchen cupboard - turmeric, honey, lemon juice, and apple cider vinegar.

Hailey Bieber's DIY Face Mask

Fellow beauty junkie, Hailey Bieber, has been delighting us with skincare tip after skincare tip over on the 'gram (see her entire routine here). And last week she even went live with skincare guru, Dr Barbara Sturm, for a masterclass in all things skincare. One trick, that Bieber herself swears by is an at-home DIY mask which calls upon two simple ingredients - one egg and one tablespoon of honey. So easy to make, this face mask should help minimise pores.

Bella Hadid & Gigi Hadid's Facialist DIY Face Mask

Celebrity facialist, Mimi Luzon, who counts Bella, Gigi Hadid and Naomi Campbell as clients, recently shared her favourite DIY face mask recipes with E! News. And for those of us currently experiencing some congestion (and don't worry, you're not alone) Luzon suggests mixing together one cup of antioxidant-rich tea, two cups of rice flour and half a teaspoon of honey. After 20 minutes, this mask should help boost glow and enhance skin tone. Double win!
