All Natural Recipes for All Skin Types

MidEast Glowing Skin Cleanser
Mix 2 tablespoons of milk to 1-2 tablespoons of lemon juice and use it to wipe skin with a cotton ball like a toner. It cleanses skin and makes it glow while lightening up darkened areas.

Ancient Eye Mask
For under-eye puffiness and dryness: peel an avocado, remove the pit, and slice off some quarter-inch crescents. Lie down, secure a few slices under each eye, and rest about 20 minutes.

Easy Purifying Mask
Make a paste with a handful of Epsom salts and a little water. Apply to your skin and leave on until it dries. Rinse off with warm water. It brightens skin while drawing out impurities and helps clear up acne.

Easiest Natural Mask
1 tablespoon honey blended with 2 tablespoons heavy cream or whole milk. Leave it on for 20 minutes and wash off. If skin is oily, you can substitute sour cream or buttermilk for the milk which are more astringent. The cheapest, easiest way to get a good moisturizing, nourishing, clarifying mask for all skin types.

Glowing Skin Mask
Half a banana
2 tablespoons powder milk
1 tablespoon honey
2 tablespoons rose water
Mix till well blended. Apply to face and leave on for 20 minutes.

Nourishing Egg & Honey Facial for All Skin Types
To cleanse, clarify, soften, moisturize and nourish skin.
1 egg yolk
1 tsp. honey
1 tsp. vitamin E oil
1 tsp. almond oil
Mix all ingredients together until smooth. Apply to face and leave on 20 minutes, then rinse well.

Honey Egg Tightening Mask
1½ tbsp. honey
1 egg white
2 tsp. glycerin
1/3 cup flour
Whisk honey, egg white and glycerin together, and then add the flour until it becomes a thick paste. Apply to face and rinse after 20 minutes. This mask moisturizes as it tightens skin, leaving it smooth and soft.

Skin Tightening Mask
Mix half powdered egg whites with half cornstarch (you can premix these and keep them in a tight closing jar until ready to use). Mix a couple tablespoons of the powder to any liquid desired until it is a paste consistency (milk, cucumber juice, green tea, aloe vera gel, water, etc). Apply to face being careful not to apply near eyes and leave on till it dries. The paste will pull, tighten, and harden (if your skin is very sensitive, test this first because it really pulls skin taut). Remove by softening with warm wash cloths, or stand directly under the spray of the shower head. It gives skin a tighter, more refined appearance. Removal of the hardened mask can be a slow process, but the result is worth it.
