Instead of venturing to your local beauty store to stock up on indulgent facial treats, why not make a DIY face-mask from the comfort of your own home and say hello to a flawless face before your big night out?
Here are three of the best natural face-masks, all tailored to a different skin-type and concocted from the contents of your cupboard!
1. Egg white and yoghurt mask (1 egg, 1 tblspn natural yoghurt)
This face-mask is particularly good for those who suffer from acne or frequent breakouts, as it tightens pores and smooths out skin.
Separate the whites of an egg from the yolk and place it in a bowl.
Add one tablespoon of yoghurt and mix the two ingredients together with a spoon.
Apply to face, relax for three minutes, then wash off with warm water and pat face dry with a towel.
2. Honey and egg yolk mask (1 egg, 1 tblspn honey, Olive Oil)
This face-mask is good for dry skin-types, as its rich ingredients serve to moisturise and re-hydrate.
Separate the yolk of an egg from the white and place it in a bowl.
Add one teaspoon of honey and a few drops of Olive Oil.
Mix together and apply to face. Leave mask on for an hour, then rinse off with warm water and pat dry with a towel.
3. Apple and milk mask (1 apple, milk)
Peel the apple, grate it, add a little milk and whisk with a fork to make a paste.
Apply it to the face and wash off with warm water after 10-15 minutes.
