Frugal Beauty: DIY Face Mask Recipes {Strawberry Face Refresher + More!}

Taking care of your facial skin, doesn't mean that you have to buy expensive face treatments! Here are some easy face mask recipes that you can make yourself at home! All of these recipes are easy to make and the ingredients are easy to buy. That means that the ingredients won't cost you too much money, and you won't need to run around town trying to find strange ingredients. The ingredients in these recipes can be found in most grocery stores, or you might actually find that you already have some of the ingredients in your kitchen!

Pampering yourself doesn't have to cost you a lot of money - so go ahead and treat yourself to a "pampered mom spa" experience at home!

Strawberry Face Refresher {Good For Breakout Prone Skin}


  • 1 egg white
  • 3-4 Strawberries, hulled
  • 1 TBS. Honey
  • 1 TBS. Cornmeal

Here's How:

Beat the egg white until frothy. Blend strawberries and honey. Add mixture and cornmeal to egg white and mix.

Don't forget to pull back your hair with a headband. Apply the mask to a clean face. Leave the mask on your face for 15-20 minutes. It will start to feel tight as it dries. Rinse off with room temp water.

While you're at it, grab a cold cucumber out of your refrigerator and slice it up. Place one cucumber on each eye, lay back and relax!
