    Here's my fave, the aspirin & honey mask:

    Put about 4 or 5 uncoated aspirins in a cup and use just enough drops of hot water to dissolve them.
    You don't want the mix to be watery. You can kinda crush them w/ a spoon to help them dissolve quicker.

    Add approx. 2 tablespoons of honey and mix well.

    Apply it to your face (and neck too if you please), kind of like a scrub, then leave it on for about 5 minutes or so.
    The graininess of the aspirin works like an exfoliator and the honey is a moisturizer/humectant.
    Gently rinse with warm water.

    It's quite messy, but it will leave your skin glowing and as soft as a baby's bottom.
    You can also use it on the backs of your upper arms, or any other body part that needs some extra pampering.

    Good luck!

    If you have oily skin:

    Take an egg, beat it and cut half a lemon and mix the lemon juice with the egg. Apply to face for 15 minutes and then rinse of with cold water.

    I agree with the honey mask. I never made one personally. They sold a similar mask as the one mentioned in France, but w/o the aspirin. It's really sweet, and it is very messy!! Also, if you have an orange honey- that's the best.

    I usually make a oat, lemon & honey conction and use it as a mask. Leave it on for 15 minutes. Its messy but SO worth it. And if you need a bit more exfoliation... add some grinded up almonds.

    After my skin feels super smooth

    Homemade Beauty Recipes - The Rosemary Honey hair conditioner is great.

    Natural Homemade Beauty Recipes - lots of different recipes... I'm going to take a whack at the cranberry lip balm this weekend.
    Lead me not into temptation... I can find it on my own!

    I agree 100%! I love the oats and honey mask. It really is worth the mess because it makes the skin feel so wonderful. I've never tried lemon in it though.
