5 Delicious Homemade Facial Recipes

It’s time to stop spending an unnecessary amount of money on facial products, especially since you can get the same results from foods that you already have in your kitchen. The added perk of the second option is that you know exactly what you are putting on your skin because these options are all natural. So sit back, relax and get ready for some beautifully radiant skin!

What you need:

  • 2-3 avocados
  • ¼ cup of honey

Mash up the avocados, mix in the honey and rub onto your face with your hands. Leave it on for 15 minutes, then rinse with cool water. Avocado is a natural moisturizer and honey unclogs pores so putting the two together is a match made in heaven for those who are acne prone. The two are full of antioxidants, and vitamins A, E, and C, which help slow down the signs of aging and breathes a bright new life into your skin.

What you need:

  • 1 tbs cocoa powder
  • 1 tbs of coffee grounds
  • 2-3 tbs of coconut milk

Mix all ingredients together and apply onto a clean face. Leave it on for 15-20 minutes, then wash it off with warm water and a washcloth. Coffee grounds are a natural exfoliator, they help tighten skin and reduces redness. Cocoa is full of yummy antioxidants, which makes the skin smoother than a baby’s bum. Coconut milk holds amazing hydrating properties so for all those out there with dry skin- meet your new best friend.

What you need:

  • 1 ruby red grapefruit
  • 1 cup of cooked cooled oatmeal

Mix ingredients in small bowl, apply onto your face for 15 minutes and rinse. The grapefruit purges toxins, the oatmeal calms inflammation, and the milk exfoliates using lactic acid while soothing. Perfect for the day after a night of imbibing or if your face is simply getting too much of that cold weather. This is your face hangover cure. You’re welcome.
