DIY: Face Masks For Your Skin Type

October 16, 2014 2 min read

  The debate on whether sunscreen is good or bad for your health is ongoing. There are still plenty of products on the shelves that contain ingredients that may (or may not) increase cancer risk. But what about other skin products? When every moisturizer and cleanser contain ten "medical" ingredients that you can't even pronounce, how do you know what's safe? Who knows what the next study will reveal? Take care of your face the natural way with homemade face masks that match your skin type and help maintain glowing skin without the chemicals. DIY face masks are fresh, easy and economical. Here are six masks that can bring your skin from haggard to healthy: imageAvocado Mask: Combination Skin Avocado is great for all skin types which is why it is so often used in masks you see in stores. It is rich in antioxidants which protect the skin from environmental damage and premature aging. The vitamin C lends firmness and collagen to your skin, while the fatty acids leave skin soft and moisturized but not oily. You really can't go wrong with an avocado mask.   imageBanana Mask: Dry or Rough Skin Banana is great for dry or rough skin. The potassium hydrates and moisturizes while the vitamins A and E help heal scars and dark spots. The amino acids also increase elasticity and help you look refreshed. Find a recipe for a banana face mask at DIYconfessions.com.   imageOatmeal Mask: Acne-Prone Skin This mask can help with multiple skin conditions, including acne, eczema and rosacea. Oatmeal can work as an exfoliant in the mask to remove dead skin and therefore reduce your chances of a breakout. It also contains betaglucan which acts as a natural moisturizer but wont leave your skin oily.   imagePumpkin Mask: Dull Skin A pumpkin mask can turn dull, tired looking skin brighter. Fruit enzymes and alphahydroxy acids brighten and sooth the skin by rejuvenating skin cells, while the vitamin A and C boost collagen formation to reduce the look of wrinkles. If you want to look young, refreshed and healthy, this is the season to do it.

According to dermatologists, caffeine constricts blood vessels making dark circles look less intense. It can also reduce puffiness. This recipe from IndianBeautySpot.com combines the ingredient with aloe and vitamin E to maximize benefits.   image Green Tea and Aloe Mask: Oily Skin For oily skin, use this green tea and aloe mask to bring down the moisture. Aloe unclogs your pores and removes dead skin to prevent oil build up. The green tea in the mask offers a load of other benefits to your skin, including reduced inflammation and reduced sun damage. Use this mask twice a week for optimal results, as over-use can result in dryness.   Research: http://healthmunsta.hubpages.com/hub/Benefits-of-Banana-for-Skin http://www.stylecraze.com/articles/amazing-health-benefits-of-oats/ http://www.dermalinstitute.com/us/news/?p=1638 http://healthiestfoods.co.uk/the-top-4-avocado-skin-benefits http://www.womenshealthmag.com/health/morning-eyes http://bestnaturaltips.com/how-to-control-oily-skin http://www.webmd.com/beauty/sun/sunscreen-safety-labels-ingredients

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.


We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.


All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
