DIY Perfect Skin

This may not be a recipe persé but it does involve food! If you know me, you know I’m a pretty big fan of any product that’s all-natural, especially when it comes to skin care. I’m also a pretty big fan of caring for my skin with budget friendly solutions. So when I came across these DIY home facials I was eager to try.

Greek Yogurt Mask


Most of you already have the ingredients for this facial in your fridge. All you need is Greek yogurt, a couple drops of olive oil and 1 tablespoon of honey. Mix it all together and leave it on your face for about 20-30 minutes. It’s supposed to help with discoloration, blemishes, fine wrinkles and all that good stuff.

Honey Mask



Here’s another easy one. Warm up some honey and leave it on your face for 15 minutes. This one is especially good for those with dry skin. Just make sure the honey isn’t too hot.
