Beyond fancy body scrubs, most of us love to splurge on expensive masks and facials. Luckily for you, it's really easy to create your own at-home facial experience using items you probably already have on hand. Spend a few minutes in your kitchen and you'll be on your way to better-looking skin.


Masks are a great way to remove dead skin cells and toxins. They also help your skin appear brighter and younger. While facial masks at the spa can cost a pretty penny, you can easily make your own custom mask at home for only a few dollars.

Papaya is wonderful at helping skin heal-especially if you are prone to redness or acne-as well as exfoliating skin and getting rid of dead skin cells. To make this simple papaya mask, simply puree 1/2 a fresh papaya and mix it with 1 cup of pineapple juice and a tablespoon of honey. Leave the mask on for 15 - 20 minutes and you're one step closer to feeling like you've just spent the afternoon at a spa.

Another quick, easy, and edible option is a pumpkin mask. Pumpkins are full of great nutrients and mixing some pureed pumpkin with a few teaspoons of milk and honey make for a vitamin-rich mask that is a natural antioxidant and will support skin structure.
