Overnight Face Mask

This overnight face mask DIY is a great way to pamper yourself while also treating your skin. We make it with simple, natural ingredients.

I’ve made and used a lot of DIY face masks. From the ultra scrubbie masks to the soft, oatmeal masks to the peel-off gel masks, they all work to some degree. But they don’t really stay on your face very long, so how can I make them more effective? That’s how I came up with an overnight mask.

  1. To make this overnight face mask simply mix all of the ingredients together. You can warm the honey a bit before you start to make it easier to blend.

  2. Before you apply the mask, put an old pillowcase on your pillow. This will keep your good ones from getting dirty or greasy. Then, apply the mask in a thin, even layer all over your face, avoiding the eye and mouth.

  3. Allow drying before you go to bed. In the morning, rinse off and continue on with your normal beauty routine.


I don’t use anything fancy for this mask. All it takes is a few simple things that you probably already have at home.

You can use this overnight face mask a few times a week. Some people feel that their facial skin can become irritated if any mask is used too often.

Making In Bulk and Storing

You can make this overnight face mask in a larger amount and keep it in the refrigerator. It will keep for up to a week. I make big batches and freeze the mask into cubes. When I want to use one, I take it out at dinner time and place it in a small bowl. By the time I get ready for bed, it’s all thawed out. Over time, the mask can thicken. Just add a few drops of distilled water to make it thin enough to apply.

Essential Oil Options for Overnight Face Masks

Other great essential oils to try are:

You can also substitute another oil in this DIY overnight face mask. I use grapeseed because it is close to your skin’s own natural oils. Another good choice here would be apricot kernel oil. But you can use jojoba or sweet almond oil if you like.

Try this overnight face mask for a new way to treat your skin!
