As you probably already guessed, we’re pretty fond of powder facial masks—and for good reason. For starters, they’re super customizable which means they’re great for just about any skin type. Upon activating a powder facial mask, you unleash all the benefits the ingredients have to offer, which in turn, ensures the potency of each ingredient.
If you’re wondering what exactly you can mix with our powder masks besides just water—you’re in luck! We’ve rounded up our favorite mixing agents below, all of which can most likely be found right in your pantry or fridge.
An obvious (and easy) choice, but still worth mentioning because both of our masks have been formulated to activate and be extremely effective by simply mixing them with a few teaspoons of water—and this works for just about any skin type.
Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple cider vinegar has gotten quite the hype over the last few years—but for good reason! If you tend to have more oily, breakout prone skin, then mixing our masks with some apple cider vinegar may be the answer you’ve been looking for. It helps to balance your pH as well as calm any active breakouts. If you’re nervous to use apple cider vinegar (since it can be a bit strong) try mixing with a little bit of water and vinegar and viola!
This is a our favorite for all skin types and if you’re looking for something with a little more exfoliation power. The natural lactic acid helps to break down dead skin cells, which is key if you have skin that's more on the oily or combination side but also the perfect remedy for dry itchy skin. This is also a great choice for those with sensitive skin since the yogurt never fully dries which is often the reason clay masks can sometimes be problematic for them. Another tip—you can mix the mask then pop it in the fridge for 10 minutes to make it extra cooling (which feels great on a hot day btw).
Aloe is another great option if you have dry or sensitive skin and is also a humectant, which not only makes it moisturizing but incredibly soothing. You can also mix a little bit of aloe and honey together with the mask if you’re looking for a little extra hydration.
I'd recommend adding this superstar to all of the choices above for a little moisture boost. Again this is another additive that is perfect for all skintypes whether you have dry, sensitive oily, or acne prone skin. Honey is a humectant which means it helps to retain and attract moisture to the skin, so mixing it with either of our powder masks means you’ll be left with soft and hydrated skin. It also has antiseptic properties which can help to ward off and even prevent breakouts. Mix a teaspoon of honey in you mask with water, ACV, Greek yogurt, or aloe and trust me, you're skin will feel softer than a babi...well you know the phrase.
