Spa Treatments At Home - For Cheap!

I am all about caring for my skin and treating myself to a spa treatment every so often. But in all honesty, who wants to pay that much money when you can make your own facial masks with products straight from your kitchen!?
These masks are not only amazing for your skin, but they are inexpensive, and the ingredients are all natural.
So get yourself to your kitchen and have an at home spa day with these 3 masks that are sure to have you glowing!


1.) Egg and Yogurt Mask - To firm and soften your skin

2 egg whites
2 Tablespoons of plain yogurt

1. Beat egg whites in a bowl until frothy
2. Stir in yogurt thoroughly
3.  Apply mask to face and leave on for 2-5 minutes.
4. Rinse off with warm water, followed by a warm washcloth.



2.) Tomato and Lime Mask - For Oily Skin
 
 

Ingredients:

2 Tablespoons of lime juice
1/2 of a tomato

Instructions:

1. Mix lime juice and tomato in a food processor or blender to form a paste. (aprox. 15-20 seconds)
2. With clean hands apply paste to your face (avoiding your eyes).
3. Leave the mixture on your face for about 10-15 minutes.
4. Rinse face with cool water and apply your regular moisturizer.


3.) Oatmeal Mask - Pore Cleanser

1 egg yolk
1 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 teaspoon wheat-germ oil
1 tablespoon old-fashioned oats

Instructions:

1. Combine banana, honey, egg, lemon juice, wheat germ oil, and oats in a blender until it forms a smooth creamy paste. (add a bit of water if mixture is too thick)
2. Apply mixture to a clean face avoiding your mouth and eyes.
3. Let mixture sit for about 10 minutes.
4. Use a warm cloth to remove th mask from your face and neck.
5. Rinse face and then follow with a cold water rinse.
6. Pat dry face and apply your usual moisturizer.



A little note:

  • If you have sensitive skin you may want to test a tiny portion of the mask on the inside of your wrist for 10 minutes, then rinse and wait for 24 hours to make sure you're not allergic to any of the mask's ingredients.
  • Do not use these mask if you have allergies to any of their ingredients.
  • Do not use this mask if you have acne or other skin problems.


  • Have you ever made your own at home facial mask? What ingredients did you use?
