This homemade face mask is perfect for that extra moisturizing boost your poor skin is in desperate need for. It is completely natural and costs less than $5 to make. Simply mix half an avocado with 1 teaspoon of olive oil and ¼ cup of milk. Apply it as a moisturizer for 15 minutes. Wash off with lukewarm water, pat dry, and feel the difference.

Exfoliating Scrub

There’s no reason to spend big money for an exfoliating mask that was probably animal tested. Make your own scrub by mixing aloe vera gel (or the crystals from the plant) with granulated sugar and baking soda. Scrub, scrub, scrub and wash away the concoction to reveal amazing and fresh looking skin.

Oatmeal Mask

Nothing is as soothing and cooling as an amazing homemade face mask with oatmeal and coconut milk. Add 2 tablespoons of honey, and use it as a moisturizing mask for about 20 minutes. You will not believe how incredible these face masks will leave your skin.
