Eggplant Yogurt Mask for Oily Skin

My next set of blogs is going to be about different facial masks. These are Grandmother's natural facials created, basically, with things around the kitchen.

Disclaimer: Remember, there's no scientific data to back this up. These are just old time ideas from grandma!

This is a fine mask for oily skin. Blend a quarter of a small eggplant with its skin and one cup of plain yogurt in a blender. Spread over your face, being careful to avoid the delicate skin around your eyes. Leave on for twenty minutes then rinse with lukewarm water. You might want to finish this treatment off with an astringent or toner. Keep chamomile tea in a spray bottle in your refrigerator and spritz the tea on your face after you rinse off the mask, or use anytime as a quick skin refreshener.

The reason grandma's skin always looked great was this inexpensive solution. She never had the money to purchase all those fancy skin preparations.

These facials are a fun way to pamper yourself. Invite some friends and have a facial party!

Facials are a wonderful idea for skin health and beauty. It's best to apply facials in the evening, when your skin will be free of makeup for several hours. Facial masks are most effective after a shower or bath, after your face has been gently steamed and the pores are open. Always start with a clean face and neck and rub the mixtures in with an upward circular motion.
