Hey there blog party people! Has Monday worn you down? Take a moment to refresh and revitalize yourself with this homemade and easy face masks. By the way, guys, these aren’t just for the ladies! You have skin than needs pampering too.

For normal to oily skin

  • 1 – 2 tsp lemon juice
  • ½ Cored apple
  • 1-2 Egg whites
  • 30-40 Seedless grapes

Puree in the blender and apply to your face. Leave on for 10 to 15 minutes. Wash off with warm water. Pat dry and moisturize! The grapefruit and lemon have are astringent and unclog pores, the apple has loads of Vitamins A, B and C. It also contains malic acid which helps your skin to absorb these vitamins.Egg whites tone and grapes are full of antioxidants.

If you have dry or mature skin, don’t use the citrus mask! It may irritate overly dry skin. Try this instead:

  • 1/4 cup plain yogurt
  • 1 medium banana
  • 2 TBSP honey (any kind works, but try to get the local and/or wild stuff)

Mash it all together to form a consistent paste. Apply to skin and leave on for about 10 minutes. Rinse off with a warm, wet washcloth. Make sure to moisturize afterward! The yogurt is good for cleansing & moisturizing, the banana is full of potassium and has emollient properties, and the honey is humectant which attracts and retains moisture. And it tastes good. 🙂

So sit back and down a few Blogging Betties while you and your skin relax!
