As win­ter looms, blus­tery winds, dry air and cold tem­per­a­tures wreak havoc on skin, caus­ing wrin­kles, dry patches and sag­ging to come into harsh fo­cus. To the res­cue: DIY face masks made with in­gre­di­ents straight from your kitchen! “Face masks are a great way to turn back the clock be­cause the anti-ag­ing in­gre­di­ents sit on skin’s sur­face plus deeply pen­e­trate skin’s many lay­ers,” says New York City der­ma­tol­o­gist De­bra Jal­i­man, M.D. For the best re­sults, use this mix-and-match chart—it lets you tai­lor a mask to your skin’s spe­cific needs, com­plete with Thanks giv­ing time sta­ples that are rich in skin-nour­ish­ing nu­tri­ents. Sim­ply fol­low the in­struc­tions be­low for beau­ti­ful skin all sea­son long!

YOUR RECIPE TO GLOW­ING

1 Scoop 1⁄4 cup of a base in­gre­di­ent from the first col­umn into a small bowl.

2 Stir in 1 Tbs. of a tar­geted anti-ag­ing in­gre­di­ent from the sec­ond col­umn.

3 Add 3 drops of a mood-boost­ing es­sen­tial oil from the third col­umn (op­tional).

4 Mix in 1 Tbs. of a bonus ben­e­fit nu­tri­ent from the last col­umn (op­tional); stir well.

TO DO: Gen­tly mas­sage the mask onto clean, dry skin us­ing cir­cu­lar mo­tions (this in­creases cir­cu­la­tion and helps in­gre­di­ents pen­e­trate bet­ter). Let sit for 15 min­utes; rinse off with warm wa­ter. Re­peat twice a week for a flaw­less com­plex­ion.

Left­overs? Try this!

Keep any un­used mask mixes from go­ing to waste by scoop­ing the re­main­ing mix­ture into a small re­seal­able jar (like 4 oz. Ball Quilted Jelly Jar, $2, Michaels.com) and store it into the fridge—it will stay fresh for up to two weeks.
