Hey, You! You’ve Got Some Food On Your Face! The Web’s Best DIY Facials

I read somewhere that you should never put on your body what you wouldn’t put in your body, and it’s stuck with me since. Because after trying one too many chem lab style commercial masks, scrubs, moisturizers and cleansers in the past that have left me feel red and blotchy and sad, I figured it was time to try out the all-natural DIY side of things. And please, not only do they work, but they work gently. Isn’t that such a nice thought?

Here then are some of the best at-home food-based facials. There’s guaranteed to be one for every kind of face–dry, oily, acne-prone, even aging. Give one a try!
