For Koreans, smooth and healthy skin is synonymous to good health, and thus they pay good attention to their skincare products and routines. 

The most popular face mask from Korea that most of you’ll probably already know is the sheet mask. It is the must-have skincare beauty product that you’ll find in all Korean homes. Tonnes of celebrities have posted pictures using these sheet masks and how obsessed they are with them. Here’s how you can make on for you too at home- 

The Green Tea Sheet Mask: Green tea is an anti-inflammatory agent that is packed with antioxidants that keep your skin glowing and healthy. The drill is simple. You just gotta make your green tea with about 5-6 bags for 15-20 minutes in hot water. Let it get to room temperature, and then soak a dry sheet mask or cotton wipes. Put it into the refrigerator for about 30 minutes and it is ready to use. This mask is going to remove impurities from your face and close the pores. 


Saudi Arabia

Saudi Arabian women are known for their ancient beauty secrets with their thick hair and naturally glowing skin. With natural ingredients and home remedies, they make sure their skin gets all the vitamins needed for a healthy role. 

The Saffron in cream face mask is widely used by Saudi Arabian women that help lighten your skin tone and give a natural glow. You just have to mix a pinch of saffron in 2 tbsps of cream (homemade or store-bought) and leave it overnight. The next morning, blend the mixture with your fingers, apply it on your face for about 10 minutes and then thoroughly wash with water. 



You must have known the beautiful and charming nature of Azerbaijani women, and that’s where their beauty standards come from. They believe natural beauty comes with happiness and kindness, and what’s wrong?

Azeri women like to keep their skin healthy with homemade remedies. One such homemade face mask is the Bittergourd cherry mask. Bitter gourd, which is also referred to as the secret of longevity, is mixed with Acerola cherry extract, which has the effect of suppressing the production of melanin. 

It moisturizes and brightens the skin and gives elasticity and radiance. 


United States

The Americans like to keep their skin-soothing and fresh and that’s what their beauty products are about. Most of the time, you’ll see an American smiling wide, her skin glowing and clear. 

Their DIY face mask includes local ingredients that you’ll easily find not only in American homes but in most countries. Here’s the drill:

Take a medium-sized ripe avocado and scoop it out in the bowl. Avocados are filled with nutrients like omega-3, fatty acids, Vitamin D, E, potassium and other minerals that you need to keep your body alive. Mash the avocados in the bowl and add 2 tbsp of raw honey into it. It’s the honey that’s gonna give the glow to your skin. Now apply it on your face, let it rest for 20 minutes and wash it. Americans usually apply face tonic and face cream on their face after that. 



Ladies in Pakistan have a clear fair complexion and a beautiful smile. Mostly, you won’t find dark spots on their faces, which is because they like to take care of their skin. A common beauty standard in Pakistan is fair skin, as stated by a local. 

For the scrub, mix half teaspoon ground coffee and half teaspoon coconut oil and apply it on your face. Let it rest for 5 minutes, and wash it. Next, for the mask, take 1 teaspoon chickpea flour, 1 teaspoon yoghurt, a pinch of turmeric and a vitamin E capsule. Mix all of these together and you’ve got your glowing mask. 



With pure black hair and brownish skin tone, Indian beauty relies on soft and healthy skin. 90% of the time, you’ll see hairless skin. Indians like to keep perfectly trimmed eyebrows and also shave off any excess hair on their face. 

The most common DIY face mask used in Indian homes is made with gram flour, turmeric and honey. Just mix 1 tbsp of each in a bowl and apply it on your face. Keep it for 10 minutes, and gently remove it with a wet cloth, while massaging your skin. Lastly, apply some moisturiser and tadaaa!



 In Israel, you’ll find people from ancestors of over 90 different countries, so you may be mistaken with their ethnicities. And thus, Israel has a pretty individual taste on beauty. Every individual is an incredible variety of colour and shape and eyes and hairs and without any doubt, all of them are beautiful. 

They make simple face masks with ingredients local to their country. Here’s Dr Nonna’s face mask recipe straight from Israel: Take 1 tbsp oat flakes, 1 tsp fresh cream, 1 cap of goldsin, 1 tsp of shokosin and egg yolk. Shokosin is rich in multiple vitamins and minerals. Mix all of them in a bowl and let it rest for 2 minutes. Then apply it on your face and voila!
