Having a pen full of chickens in my backyard makes this one a real go to when i want to do a fun face mask. But don't stop reading now if your not Old MacDonald.
This is a quick and easy treat for all skin types, especially dry skin. I find I have some left over, but usually use it on my little sister, or even my hands. This is a great easy one to do with kids for a fun pampering treat.
Almost everyone has a carton of eggs in their refrigerator at all times. And if your like me, you usually have some yogurt in there as well.
Got those? Your good to go!
-gives you a great glow
- tightens pores
-removes excess oil
What do you need?
- 2 eggs (to cleanse, and remove excess oil, tightens skin and pores)
- 2 tablespoons of plain yogurt (not flavored) ( for moisturizing and softness)
- small bowl
- foundation brush (optional)
Step 1 - Separate the egg whites into the bowl from both of your eggs. (I usually cook the yolk for my dogs)
Step 2- Add two tablespoons of your plain yogurt. (I use organic unflavored yogurt. Flavored ones can clog your pores and cause irritation. I bake with plain yogurt instead of eggs usually because of an egg allergy in the family, so I always have this kind. Most health food stores carry it if your normal grocer doesn't.)
Step 3- Wisk with your fork until well mixed
Step 4- Apply to your face with a foundation brush, or you can glop it on with your fingers.
Step 5- Leave on your face for a few minutes (I usually do 3-5)
Step 6- Rinse your face gently with warm water in circular motions.
Step 7- Close your pores with a quick splash of cold water.
Step 8- Enjoy your soothed and moisturized skin (but try to keep your germy hands off of it.) =)
I do this around once a week to really give my skin a moisturizing drink. I find my skin is very dry after cleansing, even when i apply moisturizer twice daily. This helps balance my skin, and gives me a great glow.
-Replace your yogurt for honey for an extra sweet softening experience
Mix 1 tablespoon of honey with 1.5 teaspoon of cinnamon powder. Wash your face with a facial cleanser and pat your face dry. Also, consider once or twice a week to use a gentle exfoliant.
Then apply a thin layer of the honey-cinnamon mix to your face in the same way you'd put on a facial mask. Leave it on for about 15 minutes and then wash your face for a quick mask. It is recommended to apply the paste to any problem areas before bed and wash it off in the morning with warm water.

Bananas are a wonderful as an anti-wrinkle treatment & are full of vital nutrients for bodies and benefit the skin when applied in a facial mask. Bananas are high in Vitamin C, A, B6 and B12, plus they contain potassium and magnesium. The fruit acids in bananas help slough off dead skin and energize the complexion and moisturize your skin.
All you need to do is mash half a banana until it is a very creamy texture. Spread it all over your face and leave it on for 15-20 minutes. Then rinse it all off with warm water, followed by a dash of cool water. Using a soft cloth gently pat your skin dry.
This method is safe enough to be used daily as well! Also, you can add a little honey to the mixture for even more moisturizing! Your skin will thank you!
**Make sure if you have any left over you refrigerate**

Sure, strawberries are a very yummy fruit, perfect for summer, but if you have a few extra ones put them to good use for your face! Your skin will thank you later!
Strawberries clear up acne and oiliness, make skin younger and smoother, reduce under-eye puffiness and so much more! They also have alpha-hydroxy acid, that helps get rid of dead skin cells that rest on the top layer of your skin.
Here's what you do:
Step 1: Crush up 3-4 strawberries in a bowl, until there aren't to many chunks
Step 2: Add enough cornstarch to your strawberries to make it into a thick paste (add it a little at a time so you don't end up wit to much)
Step 4: Mix the two together and apply to your face (avoiding eye area)
Step 5: Leave on your face for 10-15 minutes and allow it to dry on your face for a bit (and take a picture of yourself looking silly!)
Finally, Rinse off your skin with cool water and pat dry! <3
