To create your own inexpensive facial, simply gather the ingredients needed and follow these instructions:

  • Rub a small amount of milk of magnesia on oily skin.
  • Allow it to dry, then rinse with warm water.
  • Cook ½ cup of instant oatmeal. Beat in 1 egg and 2 tsp. of cold pressed olive oil.
  • Rub it on your face and leave it on for 15 minutes. Rinse.

To create an inexpensive egg and honey facial for dry skin:

  • Mix 1 egg yolk with 1 tsp of honey and 1 tsp olive oil. Mix them well.
  • Stir in a few drops of oil from a Vitamin E capsule.
  • Apply it on your face and leave it for 15 minutes. Rinse.

For a quick and healthy facial:

  • Slice a couple of grapes and rub them on your face.
  • Leave it on for a few minutes then rinse it off.

Another great healthy facial option is not to throw out overripe bananas and avocados:

  • Mash ½ avocado and ½ banana together.
  • Stir in a few spoonfuls of plain yogurt and 1 tsp and 1 tsp olive oil.
  • Apply generous amounts of the mixture on your face and leave it on for 30 minutes.
  • Rinse off with lukewarm water.

Strawberries also work wonders:

  • Blend 5-6 strawberries in a blender.
  • Add 3 tsp cream and 1 tsp honey.
  • Apply the mixture on your face and leave it on for 10 minutes. Rinse off.

Your skin will feel just as refreshed and revitalized as though you went to a spa for a facial.
