Part of a healthy skin care regimen is to pamper your skin every once in awhile which a wonderful, nourishing facial mask. You can end up spending $100s if you get these masks done at a store but you can make homemade facial masks, for all skin types, very inexpensively. The great thing about homemade facial masks is they contain all natural ingredients and no chemicals or preservatives. Spas may not be able to say the same thing and masks you buy at the store certainly can’t say there products are chemical free. You will commonly see honey, yogurt and oatmeal in masks because all are excellent for your skin.

If you are looking for homemade facial recipes for oily or acne prone skin, try this: you will need 2 aspirin, coffee cup, a dish, warm, runny honey and one of the following: olive oil, almond oil or coconut oil.  Crush the aspirin with the coffee cup and place the crushed aspirin in a dish. Add a few drops of water until the aspirin turns into a paste. To the aspirin paste, add the warm honey and the oil of your choice, about a tablespoon or two each.  Mix together and apply to your face or spot treat pimples. Leave on until dry, about 10 minutes, and wash away.

Sometimes homemade facial recipes are extremely easy, such as this one for all skin types: Simply mix warm, runny honey with 1 tablespoon of plain Greek yogurt. Do not use non-fat or low fat, you want full fat.  Place this mix on your face and let it sit for about 15 minutes. Rinse and follow up with a moisturizer if needed.

Homemade facial masks can get a bit complicated as well. This is for combination skin: Take 6 rose petals and crush them. To the rose petals add 2 tablespoons of homemade rosewater (boil 1 cup water, add 1 cup rose petals and simmer for about 15 minutes. Strain rose petals and keep rose water.), 2 tbsp natural Greek yogurt and 1 tbsp of runny honey. Mix together, apply to skin and leave on for about 10 minutes. Rinse and apply moisturizer if needed.

Homemade facial recipes are best for dry or sensitive skin. For this final recipe, add 1 cup of full fat Greek yogurt and ½ cup of oatmeal. To that you should add 1 tbsp of warm honey. Apply to face and leave on for about 15 minutes, then rinse.
