1 table spoon honey
1 egg yolk
1 teaspoon olive oil
Beat one egg yolk with a fork, add the oil and blend well. Add the honey using a spoon that you have rinsed with hot water and blend well again. Smear it all over your face with your fingers, except do not cover your eyes. Leave it on your face for 15 minutes, and then rinse it off.
2. Cucumber Facial:
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon witch hazel (you can buy this in any drug store)
1 egg white, beaten with an electric beater until fliffy.
Combine the cucumber liquid with the lemon juice and the witch hazel. Stir it and add the beaten egg white gently. Put it on your face and leave it on for 15 to 20 minutes, then rinse off.
3. peach Tightening Mask
1 peach, ripe, peeled, pitted
1 egg white
Whip the peach and egg white together in a blender until smooth. Gently pat the mixture all over your face. Relax for 30 minutes, then rinse it off with cool water.
4. Apple Mask For Normal Skin
1 apple, cored & quartered
2 tablespoon honey
Drop the apple pieces into a food processor and chop. Add honey and refrigerate for 10 minutes. Pat the mixture onto your face with a light tapping motion, tapping until the honey feels tacky. Leave it on for 30 minutes and then rinse well.
5. Cucumber Mask For Oily Skin
1 egg white
1 T Lemon juice
1 tsp Mint
Puree everything and refrigerate for 10 minutes. Apply the mixture to your face and leave it on for 15 minutes. Rinse with warm, then cool water.
6. Strawberry Drawing Mask
1/2 cups strawberries, very ripe
1/4 cups cornstarch

7. Citrus Freshner
2 cups boiling water
1 vitamin C (a preservative)
Lemon peel (zest) from 2 lemons
Dissolve the vitamin in the water. In a glass bowl put the lemon zest and pour the water over them. Let it sit over night. Remove the zest and put in a spray bottle. You can use any type of citrus peel.
8. Blemished Skin Mask
1 tomato, ripe, chopped
1 tsp Lemon juice
1 T instant style oatmeal or old- fashioned rolled oats
Blend everything until just combined. Apply to skin, making sure the mixture is thick enough to stay on blemished areas: cheeks, forehead, or chin. If necessary, add a bit more oatmeal to thicken the mask. Leave it on for 10 minutes, then scrub it off with a clean wash cloth dipped in warm water.

Just mix one egg yolk with a little honey and spread it on your face and neck. When it dries, rinse it off. Your skin will feel so fresh and soft!
