Your skin is an extremely important part of you body to take care of.  Women spend hundreds of dollars every year in the pursuit of and maintaining perfectly clear skin.  One of the priciest treatments for skin are facials.  Facials rejuvenate your skin and leave you with a healthy glow.  Did you know you can achieve that rejuvenation and glow without leaving your house?  Take a step in your pantry!  Save some serious money by trying out these incredible homemade face masks that are simple and work effectively.

*All of these masks should only stay on for about 20 minutes.

Tightening and Firming Mask

If you are wanting to tighten and firm your skin try the coffee and honey mask!  Rubbing coffee grounds on skin is known to stimulate skin and increase blood flow.  This is applicable to people who have cellulite.  Cellulite usually occurs when there is a lack of stimulation and blood flow to a certain area.  That is why cellulite often occurs on a person’s legs and bottom due to the lack of blood flow when sitting often for an extended period of time.  This mask can be applied to your face or any part of your body.  Mix 2 tsp of coffee grounds and 2 tsp of honey, rub it into skin in a circular motion, then rinse after a few minutes.

Acne Clearing Mask

Acne is kind of the worst.  It seems like you have to blast your skin with chemicals in order to say goodbye to those pesky pimples, until now!  Your pimples have met their maker with just 2 tsp of honey and 1 tsp of lemon juice!  Lemon juice’s citric acid wages war on pimples and honey’s anti-inflammatory quality calms skin.  Mix them together, rub them on your face, and rinse after a few minutes.
