I wanted to post some of the recipes for natural facial masks to do at home. 
Love them!

During the day your skin has a lot to endure. Toxic compounds present in our air, dirt, harsh weather, and store-bought cosmetics are damaging and aging your skin. To keep your skin smooth, refreshed, and healthy, it’s important to treat it with the best care.

The face is the most exposed and therefore needs the most attention. If you take a closer look at your store-bought facial cleansers you may find a whole list of chemicals you’d rather not put onto your skin.  So making your own, chemical-free alternative is the best way to nurture your skin and give it a clean, smooth, and fresh look.

No need to spend all your money on expensive treatments and facial cleansers. Actually, you may have all the natural ingredients hiding in your cupboards or fridge right now!

1. Raw Honey For All Skin types

Probably the easiest facial cleaner of them all. No need to mix things up. Honey can be used as a daily facial cleaner. It works as an excellent moisturizer and its enzymes clean-up dead skin cells to leave your skin supple, smooth, and hydrated.

How To Use Honey As A Facial Cleaner

Add a small amount of honey into the palm of your hands.
Massage into your face. For a better result, leave the honey on for about 10 minutes.
Rinse off with warm water.
The Honey will hydrate and soften your skin, so no need to apply a facial crème or salve after the honey cleaning.
If your skin is very dry, mix a little milk, yogurt or cream with the honey. For an oily skin, try adding lemon juice. If you use a lot of make-up, add the honey onto a wet wash cloth and sprinkle a little baking soda to remove all the residues.

Yogurt-Apple Cleanser For Dry Skin-types

Yogurt has natural cleansing properties and is full of proteins to soften and hydrate your dry skin. Honey and olive oil add and capture moisture into your skin. And why apples? Apples are loaded with vitamin A, B, C, and other powerful antioxidants for a fresher, rejuvenated skin.

How To Make A Yogurt-Apple Facial Cleanser

Peel and slice 1 apple. Blend the slices in a food processor with ¼ cup plain yogurt, 1 teaspoon olive oil (or any other oil of your liking), and 1 teaspoon honey until smooth.
Massage the mixture onto your skin.
Leave on for a few minutes and rinse with warm water.
