Who doesn't love some time at the spa...even if that spa is your bathroom with a couple of candles? With these homemade face mask recipes, you’ll not only save money and get the same results as expensive store-bought varieties, you won't mind that you had to lock the door so your kids won't barge in.
Simple avocado: Just mash up a ripe avocado (the fruit shouldn’t be tough, and it give a little when touched). Apply to your face and let set for 15 to 20 minutes. Add some cucumbers to your eyes for extra relaxation! Rinse with warm water.
Go bananas: Bananas are great for oily skin. Mash one banana with a teaspoon of honey and a couple of drops of lemon juice. Apply to your face and let sit for 15 minutes before washing with a cool washcloth.
The solution for dry skin: Mix one egg yolk with a teaspoon of honey and teaspoon of olive oil. Leave on your face for as long as possible, then wash off. The vitamin A in the egg yolk is great for your skin!
Tastes pretty good, too: Mix 1/4 cup brown sugar with 1 1/2 tbsp of whole or 2% milk. Rub into your face, then leave on for 10 minutes. The brown sugar will exfoliate while the milk will moisturize.
You won’t believe it till you try it: Clay cat litter is actually the exact same clay that’s found in some of the most expensive face masks on the market. Find some cat litter labeled “100% all-natural clay” and mix it with water until it gets to the consistency you want. Adding a couple drops of scented oil will also help make it seem less like you’re applying cat litter to your face. Wash the mask off after it hardens.
Skin soother: This face mask is perfect for sunburned or irritated skin. Combine 1/4 cup full-fat yogurt with 2 tbsp of oatmeal. Mix vigorously for one minute, then apply to your face. Leave on for at least ten minutes, then wash off with warm water.
