DIY turkish face mask

Other than small waists and surprisingly big breasts, Turkish women are also known for their organic skincare. They’re creative and resourceful when it comes to pampering. The Turkish face mask or Turkish coffee face mask has come to be known all around the world lately.

But there is much more to Turkish beauty than coffee scrubs. Every single thing in a vegetarian diet is a potential ingredient for an organic Turkish face mask. Below are the 6 most popular and organic Turkish face mask recipes to add to your skincare routine.

1. Turkish Coffee Face Scrub

This is a lifesaver when you want to combine a few of your skincare steps together. This face mask is perfect for exfoliating and hydrating. The result is plump, smooth, and glowing skin.

The mask is ideal for flaky and dry skin with a dull texture. And it’s better to have a steam bath or face steam before the application.

You don’t need to put anything else on your face after the application. Remember that exfoliation can be irritating to your face.

If you have active acne and breakouts, you should wait for your skin to heal first. At least, try to stay away from that area if you still want to try the mask.


  1. 1 tsp. Turkish coffee.
  2. 1 tsp. olive oil.


  1. Put the coffee and olive oil in a small container.
  2. Mix them well.

  4. Gently scrub and massage your face for a few minutes.
  5. Keep it on for about 10 minutes.
  6. Rinse off.

2. Turkish Coffee Face Mask

Turkey is one of the biggest honey producers in the world. Because of its innumerable benefits, honey has a special place in Turkish beauty too. Honey works great for hydrating and softening the skin.

That’s why this mask is ideal for dehydrated skin. You should also know that the application can get messy, so try putting a towel around your neck to prevent potential fallouts.


  1. 1 tsp. Turkish coffee.
  2. 1 tsp. organic honey.


  1. Heat the honey just a little to achieve a more liquid texture.
  2. Mix the honey and the coffee in another container.

3. Rose Water Face Toner

You can also buy this product, but give it a try if you want to keep things organic and natural. Rosewater toner has calming effects on the skin. It also works like magic on dry and dull skin.

The toner is ideal for all skin types. You can keep a small bottle in your bag to freshen up whenever you need it. You can also use it as a hydrating face mist before makeup or use it to dampen your makeup sponge.

You can also skip the other ingredients and put the tea bags on your eyelids to get rid of puffy eyes.
