Indulge Your Skin with Three Home-Made Facial Masks
by Francoise Rapp
Facial masks are a wonderful way to make your skin glow, even out its tone, and help it appear more youthful. And you can make healthy, all-natural facial masks right at home. I've created three simple recipes to share with you to bring out the natural beauty of your skin. I suggest you use these skin treatments at least every other week to maximize their benefits.

Remember, it is important to cleanse your face thoroughly with a gentle liquid natural soap before applying any facial mask.

Honey Mask for Toning and Cleansing
(good for all skin types)

-3 TBS of liquid honey

-1 drop Rose essential oil
-3 drops Geranium essential oil
