Spa Day - Homemade Facials

I'm a huge fan of homemade spa recipes. When I was a student and couldn't afford going to a spa, I'd go through my pantry and fridge and make some homemade spa concoctions for my skin and hair. If you haven't tried this before, I totally recommend it - they'll leave you feeling great and refreshed, without spending big bucks! Here are a couple of homemade facial recipes.

Coffee and eggs facial exfoliating mask.  You can do this after you've had your morning coffee. You need 1/4 cup of the used coffee grounds and 1 egg white. Mix the two ingredients well and massage the mixture gently on your face. Let it dry. Rinse it off with cool water and gently pat your skin dry with a towel.

Honey and eggs facial for oily skin. Whisk 1 egg white, and then add 4-5 drops of lemon juice and 2 teaspoons of honey (you can also use orange or grapefruit juice). Mix well and gently apply to your face. Let it stay for about 20-30 minutes and then rinse it off with cool water and pat dry your skin.

Make sure you're laying down while waiting for the masks to dry - gravity will cause the mixture to drip down and drag your skin downwards. Besides, why not just have some YOU time and relax!

Hope you enjoy those, and stay tuned for some homemade hair masks next time!
