10 Amazing Homemade Powder Face Mask Recipes

We all enjoy a good DIY mask. Before we began using skin care products, the majority of Indians used powder face masks as their skin care. These days, a variety of products seem to be eclipsing face packs in popularity. But you know what? For many of us, these lovely homemade face masks continue to be the most accessible, practical, and effective way to indulge in skincare. Not that we should use these DIYs every day, but treating ourselves once a week seems like a nice idea.

What are Powder Face Masks?

Powder Face Masks are typically made of dry components such as clay, flour, or any powdered grain. It’s just that – a face mask that is in a powdered form.

You can whip your own powder face mask at home. You just need to mix it with a liquid medium like water, rose water, or aloe vera gel to make a paste and then apply it.


Since they are in powder form, you won’t need any preservatives, additives, or fillers.
