So whether you want to wait for #SelfCareSaturday or try it out as soon as you walk in the door tonight, here are some celebrity-inspired DIY recipes that will leave your skin feeling like a million bucks.




Jessica Alba

Yogurt, Coffee, and Coconut Oil

Jessica Alba and her Honest Beauty line are staples for girls looking for clean beauty products. So it comes as no surprise that Alba has a slew of DIY face masks that she turns to whenever she needs inspiration from her cupboard for a new product.

On Instagram, Alba shared a scrub and face mask combo using ingredients she already had in her pantry by mixing up honey, fine table salt, yogurt, flax seeds, and coconut oil.

She also shared her favorite mask for rehydration and “beautiful skin” on a recent episode of The Dr. Oz Show. By mixing half a cup of full-fat plain Greek yogurt, a tablespoon of ground coffee, and a tablespoon of coconut oil (which can be substituted for lemon juice if you are feeling too greasy for the oil) she is able to create that fresh, soft look she is known for.

Hailey Bieber

Egg and Honey

In a recent “Ask Me Anything” on Hailey Bieber’s Instagram, the model revealed the secret to her flawless skin to her followers.

“This is gonna sound crazy, but I promise you it helps. Mix one egg and a dollop of honey in a bowl and apply it to your face. Let the mixture dry and then wash it off.”

She credited the easy DIY mask as the power elixir behind her natural glow and minimized pores. That and genetics, Bieber.


Mimi Luzon

Avocado, Chocolate, and Honey

Mimi Luzon, the celebrity facialist whose clients include Bella Hadid, Gigi HadidKaia Gerber, and Bar Refaeli, may be best known for treating her clients to indulgent, 24-karat gold facials, but on her Instagram stories, she shared her favorite DIY mask with a considerably cheaper price point.

Her ingredients? Avocado, chocolate, and honey. The quick mask is loaded with antioxidants, is anti-inflammatory, and provides glowing power that will leave you looking like a brand new woman.

Simply mash the avocado, add a spoon of chocolate powder, and a dollop of honey. Spread the mask on your face and let it sit for 10 minutes before you wash it off. And there you have it — the soft, dewey look of the stars.
