Leave-on facial masks are a great way to lift dirt out of clogged pores. They can also leave skin feeling smoothed and refreshed. Many facial masks can be made using ingredients from your own kitchen.

Bran Face Mask

Bran can be used to help unclog pores. Mix together equal parts of bran, baking soda and water. The mask needs to be left on for 15 minutes. To wash the bran mask off, rinse your face with a solution made of one part apple cider vinegar and eight parts water.

Rose Water and Cucumber

Place rose water in a bowl with cucumber paste. Make sure you have the same amount of cucumber paste as you do rose water. Stir the two ingredients together and apply it to your face. The mixture should be left on for 20 minutes then rinsed off.

Turmeric Paste and Flour

An at-home face mask can be created by mixing equal parts turmeric paste and whole wheat flour. This paste can be applied to the face and needs to be left on for 10 minutes. Wash off with warm water.
