3 Facials From Your Fridge

Acne, wrinkles and puffiness are all common skin complaints. Calm and cleanse your skin with these all-natural recipes.

Strawberry Cream Mask

Wrinkles are a normal part of aging. If you are concerned about premature wrinkling, monitor your sugar intake. Excess sugar can damage collagen and elastin, fibers that support your skin. For a healthier sugar fix, try incorporating blueberries into your diet; they are high in vitamin C, which will help strengthen collagen and prevent skin from wrinkling and sagging. This simple anti-aging recipe will moisturize your skin and its high vitamin C content will minimize the appearance of wrinkles. 


1/4 cup fresh strawberries
1/4 cup plain yogurt


Mash strawberries, and then mix in with yogurt. Leave mask on for 20 minutes, and then rinse with cool water. 

Chocolate Oatmeal Facial
ondering which culprit in your diet is giving you acne? It could be that milk is causing the production of testosterone to clog up your pores with excess oil. If you find that acne is a consistent problem, try swapping regular milk with almond milk and monitor the results. This facial recipe features chocolate, an antioxidant that leaves skin feeling soft and smooth, and oatmeal, a natural cleanser that will unclog your pores.


2 tbsp chocolate
1 oz oatmeal
1/4 cup heavy cream
2 tbsp cottage cheese
1 tbsp honey


Melt chocolate. Mix the rest of the ingredients together and apply.
Apply for 20 minutes, then rinse off with cool water.

Banana Honey Face Mask

Frustrated with puffy skin? The food that is sabotaging your skin might be processed meat. The excess chemicals and salt in these meats cause water retention, which can contribute to the puffy skin. For a less salty alternative, replace processed meats with a grilled chicken breast. This easy to make recipe has anti-inflammatory benefits that help to minimize the look of puffiness.

1 ripe banana
1 tbsp organic honey
A few drops of an orange

Mash banana. In a bowl mix together mashed banana, honey and orange juice. Apply for 20 minutes, and then rinse for 20 minutes.

Health Benefits

Tomatoes: Along with its many vitamins, minerals and antioxidant qualities the tomato contains lycopene. Studies show lycopene prevents prostate cancer and heart disease. Lycopene is the substance in plants which protects them from the sun’s UV rays, it does the same in our bodies, kind of like a natural sunscreen. Yes, it’s true that some tomato sauces and canned tomatoes also contain this protective quality but fresh is still best.

Olive Oil: Extra Virgin Cold Pressed olive oil is one of the highest natural sources of Vitamin E. This nutrient has been known to erase fine lines on the face, repair connective tissues, repair the circulatory system and soothe the digestive tract. In many studies, olive oil has also been shown to reduce the risk of cancer and heart disease, our two biggest killers. No wonder the Mediterranean diet is so beneficial.

Sea Salt: Sea Salt is our friend, it is packed with nutrition containing more than 80 minerals, including calcium. The sodium in salt is necessary for brain function and for balancing our system. However, getting sodium from table salt or sodium found in canned, preserved and highly processed foods is damaging as it lacks a complete array of minerals. Table salt has a bad reputation because it has been dried at scorching temperatures, chemically bleached and then often enriched with iodine. It’s a similar story for rock salt and kosher salt.
