10 fabulously frugal homemade facial tips
- A good facial needn’t be expensive- an egg white whipped up nice and frothy will work wonders. Leave it on for 10 minutes, rinse with cool water and pat dry.
- For a great facial toner, mix a few drops of lemon juice with yoghurt, but make sure you keep it away from your eyes.
- Try an oatmeal facial combining one egg yolk with 1 tbsp of cooked oatmeal, I tbsp of honey and 1/8 tsp of lemon juice. Pat gently on face, keeping away for your eyes and rinse off after 20 minutes.
- Moisturise your skin by blending half a mashed banana and half an avocado with 1 tsp of honey and leave on your face for 20 minutes.
- Tone up and moisturise tired skin with a carrot juice facial. Blend 2 tsp of carrot juice, an egg white ( for oily skin) or an egg yolk ( for dry skin) and 1 tbsp of honey. Leave it on for 20 minutes before rinsing.
- Need an astringent? Grapefruit juice is excellent or if you would rather not use something quite so acidic, try using buttermilk over your face, allow to dry and rinse off with cool water
- Blemishes will fade away with frequent dabs of lemon juice applied to them.
- Dead skin will peel off elbows knees, feet and your face when massaged liberally with mayonnaise.
- Pack your bags (eye bags, that is) with dampened gauze squares filled with raw grated potato. This will temporarily eliminate puffiness around the eyes.
- Refresh tired eyes with slices of cucumber; keep them in place about 10 minutes while you day dream of paradise isles…
