Why pay more for an adorable face? If you have no time to go to an expensive spa house to pamper yourself, then do it at home. This article is written for facial treatments only.

First and foremost, determine your skin type; is it oily, dry, or normal? After you have determined your skin type, simply follow the steps below.

Facial Scrub

Dead skin cells make our face look tired and stressed out. So the first thing to do to revitalize your face is to scrub it. Scrubbing removes dead skin cells, oil, and dirt.

For rejuvenating facial scrub, just mix:

2 tbsp. of honey

½ tbsp sugar

Sugar will serve as the exfoliating beads. Cover your face with the mixture and rub your face in slow circular motion for 3-5 minutes. Then, let it set for 5 more minutes. Now, rinse it with warm water, and dry your face.

Finally, finish up the re-hydration process with 2-3 tbsp of cold milk. Let the milk dry on your face about 10 minutes, rinse well and feel the new you!

Oily skin

Oil is necessary to prevent our skin from drying. However, too much oil  can fry our sensitive face. Control it with the invigorating orange batter.

A. Make a thick paste by mixing:

½ tbsp of four

½ or 1 orange

Thoroughly coat your face with the batter. Let it dry then rinse with warm water.

B. Another trick that would help control oil is to head in your refrigerator and grab an egg. Freshen up your face with the egg white added with a bit of lemon. Relax and wait for 30 minutes, rinse, and glow!

C. Vinegar is also another effective ingredient. Mix:

½ cup of apple cider vinegar

½ cup water.

Wash your face with the solution, let it dry, rinse.

Dry skin

Dry skin could be hormonal problem or your sebaceous gland (oil gland) is not producing enough oil to moisturize your skin. So give yourself a fancy spa facial at the convenience of your home with mayonnaise. Just spread the mayo over your face, leave for 20 minutes, and rinse with cool water.

An egg yolk with a teaspoon of olive oil is another affordable and fantastic recipe to moisturize your face. Let the mask dry on your face for 10-15 minutes, rinse.

Avocado has essential oil that is very beneficial for dry skin type. Mash up one small fruit until smooth, gently massage it on your face and neck. Wait for 15 minutes then rinse with cold water.

Normal skin

You don’t have to spend an hour or two in a beauty salon just to get a facial treatment. For a stimulating facial mask, simply use banana. Right, as in b-a-n-a-n-a. Just mash:

1 medium banana

2 tbsp honey.

Let the mask dry for 20 minutes on your face and rinse with cold water.

Here’s another great recipe for your face – oatmeal. In a blender, blend together to make a paste:

1 chopped ripe tomato

1 tbsp oatmeal

1 tsp lemon juice

After cleansing your face pat the mask on your face and neck. Let it stay for 10-20 mins, rinse with warm water.
