At Home Facials

I am on a new kick with this thing called a BUDGET.  Yes, it sucks, but it’s a part of my life.  In my new budget life I am trying to cut out some expenses and try “do it yourself” things…  For example the last 2 months I have given myself my own manicure.  It doesn’t look near as good but I’m saving at least $60 a month by doing it, so why not!  I still let the professionals do my feet because let’s face it pedicures just feel good!  Well ,I have also found little secrets to giving my own at home facials.  I was reading Women’s Day (wow, I just sounded like my mom there) about giving home facials and here are some helpful tips to do just that.

For Oil- and Blemish-Prone Skin

Lift & Tighten: Combine 2 Tbsp plain yogurt with 1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice (the juice of one lemon) and apply to your cleansed face and neck.  Let it dry for 20 to 30 minutes.  You’ll feel the mask tighten on your face and neck, which creates a lifting and firming effect.  Leave it on longer (up to one hour) for even more face-lifting effects.  Once done, rinse with warm water followed by a cool rinse.  This mask can be done two to three times a week or whenever you need a face lift.  “This instant face-lifting mask helps fade age-spots, acne scars and even helps keep blemishes and acne in check.  It also gets rid of uneven-looking skin tone,” says Macan-Graves.

For Dry Skin

Soothe: Combine 2 Tbsp honey with 1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar or lemon juice.  Apply to your clean face and leave on for 20 minutes.  Rinse with warm water followed by a cool rinse.  This can be done three times a week. “This mask heals, moisturizes and balances the pH of the skin,” says Macan-Graves. “Honey is a humectant and natural antibiotic that heals and moisturizes.  Apple cider vinegar helps balance the pH of skin and soothes damaged skin.”
