Home Facial 1

During the spa parties that I work, I offer 2 types of complimentary facials. One is an avocado yogurt facial (containing: avocado, plain greek yogurt, fresh squeezed lemon juice) and the other is a honey, oatmeal facial (containing: honey, a splash of milk and ground oatmeal). They are easy, safe for all skin types and really good for you! I am a big fan of DIY fresh facials, so I thought it might be a nice idea to share some good recipes I find here and there. In these difficult economic times, not many people can justify a trip to the spa.

Homemade Juice Mask (for oily skin)*
Strawberry and lemon juice contain natural astringents. Note: Recipe works for two people, so invite a friend, or cut recipe in half for just you.

  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 2 egg whites
  • 3 tsp honey
  • 1 cup strawberries
  • Optional: 4 drops of your favorite essential oils
  1. Mash or blend the above ingredients.
  2. Smooth over face.
  3. Let it stay for 10 minutes.
  4. Rinse.
