effFACIALS anyone?

A day at the spa can be expensive, but sometimes we just need that feeling of total relaxation. What better way to do so than in the comfort of your own home? I have a facial recipe that you can do yourself and it's not just one size fits all Whether you have dry, oily, aging, or sensitive skin, I have a different recipe for you. Guys, you can try it too. Ladies like men with smooth skin!

ALL SKIN TYPES: Oatmeal and Yogurt Face Mask - This face mask is suitable for all skin types and is super simple to prepare. It will cleanse and rejuvenate your skin.

Ingredients: 1 tbsp oatmeal, finely ground, 1 tbsp live, organic yogurt (skip the flavored stuff) & a few drops of honey. Preparation: Add the yogurt to the oatmeal in a small bowl and mix together. Warm a few drop of honey. To do this, warm a spoon under hot water for a minute, then add a few drops of honey to the spoon. Stir the honey into the yogurt and oatmeal mixture. Apply the mask to the face. Leave it on for 10 minutes, then rinse off with several splashes of warm water. Follow with a warm washcloth. Apply moisturizer.

SENSITIVE SKIN: Yogurt Mask - This mask is great for soothing chapped, sunburned or otherwise irritated skin. Extra tip: This mask works well for other skin types as well. For oily skin, add a couple drops of lemon or lime juice. For dry skin, mix in a couple tablespoons of honey.

Ingredients:1 cup natural yogurt (we like it just-out-of-the-fridge cold) and ½ cup oatmeal (any type of basic oatmeal works here). Preparation: Mix the ingredients together. Apply to the skin for 10-15 minutes. Wash off mask with a washcloth steamed in the microwave (careful that it's not too hot).
OIL/ACNE PRONE SKIN: Banana Mask - This is a soothing face mask and great if you have bananas around the house.

Ingredients: 1 banana, preferably ripe (you can keep ripe bananas in the freezer. Let it thaw before using), 1 tbsp honey, & an orange or a lemon. Preparation: Mix the banana and honey together. Add a few drops of juice from an orange or a lemon. Apply to face for 15 minutes before rinsing with a cool washcloth or a steaming warm washcloth.

DRY SKIN: Avocado Face Mask for Dry Skin - Avocados and honey are particularly moisturizing. This mask is particularly great for mature, wrinkled and dry skin. It's best to use a ripe, fresh, organic avocado. Make sure to mash it up into a creamy pulp.

Ingredients: ½ avocado & ¼ cup honey. Preparation: A classic recipe for dry skin. Mash the avocado in a bowl, then stir in honey. Apply to skin and leave for 10 minutes. Rinse face with a cool washcloth.

COMBINATION SKIN: Rose Face Mask - This mask, based on roses, is perfect for balancing out the oily and dry areas of your skin.

Ingredients: Optional: 6 fresh rose petals, 2 tbsps rosewater, 1 tbsp natural yogurt, room temperature (not low-fat or non-fat), 1 tbsp runny honey (to get honey runny, you can warm it in a microwave for a few seconds). Preparation: Soak rose petals, then crush them in a bowl. Add the rosewater, yogurt and honey. Mix well and apply to the skin. Leave on for 10 minutes. Rinse.
