DIY Aloe Vera Masks to Soothe Summer Skin

Our skin has to put up with a lot in the summer months – sunscreen from beach days, make-up from nights out with friends, sweat from a long hike — your face deserves a little R&R.

Here are a few of her suggestions for easy-to-DIY face masks using skin-soothing aloe vera as a base, to give your skin a boost.

Refreshing Citrus Aloe Mask Recipe


1. Refreshing Citrus Aloe Vera Mask
Perfect after a long day at the beach, this Vitamin C-heavy mixture provides some much-needed healing, soothing inflammation and redness due to sunburn.


  • 1 tsp orange peel powder
  • 2 Tbsps aloe vera gel
  • 2 Tbsps lemon juice

Mix all ingredients into a paste. Apply on face, focusing on areas of sunburn. Leave on for 15-20 minutes, then rinse with cold water.





Hydrating Banana/Almond Aloe Mask Recipe2. Hydrating Banana/Almond Aloe Vera Mask
Skin dried out from too much product? This revitalizing blend prevents flakiness and keeps skin hydrated.


  • 2 Tbsps aloe vera gel
  • 3 tsp almond oil
  • 1 small, ripe banana

Mash the banana, then add the aloe vera gel and the almond oil. Mix thoroughly until evenly blended. Apply, and leave on for 30 minutes. Wash off with lukewarm water.






Radiant Glow Exfoliating Mask Recipe3. Radiant Glow Exfoliating Aloe Mask
For a more even skin tone, papaya is the way to go. It treats dark spots and helps in removing dead skin cells. Brown sugar acts as an exfoliant, scrubbing away dirt, make-up, and excess oil. When combined with soothing aloe, damaged skin is repaired, leaving you with a soft, radiant glow.


  • 1/3 of a ripe papaya

About me

Call it passion, or maybe curiosity -- whatever it is Jessica is fueled by, it's not slowing down any time soon. From the get-go, she knew that her desire to represent brands with a purposeful story was a strong one, and after graduating with a degree in public relations from SDSU, followed by a solid stint at a lifestyle PR agency, she landed in a role with a company whose story outshines the rest (hint hint, that's here). She's openly obsessed with the outdoors, reveling in cycling races, hiking adventures and, most commonly, brunching on patios. She is known for always taking the "scenic route" -- especially for fish taco pit-stops along the way -- and makes a solid effort to keep her schedule jam-packed with activities and friends, which keeps her on her toes.
