Tired of spending a lot of money on facial products that don't even work? Try on some masks made from items you already own—they're all natural and good enough to eat!

Step 1: Think pumpkin and papaya
Pumpkin is loaded with skin-healing antioxidants, while papaya contains an enzyme that dissolves oil and dead skin cells. Mix one cup of canned, mashed pumpkin with 2/3 cup mashed papaya, apply to a clean, dry face, leave on for ten minutes, then rinse.

Don’t have papaya? Pineapple works just as well.

Step 2: Use a strawberry
Strawberries contain alpha-hydroxy acid, which helps slough off dead skin cells, and salicylic acid, which dries up oil that can block pores and cause breakouts. For clearer, brighter skin, simply cut a berry in half, rub on your face, leave for five minutes, and wash off.

Step 3: Use an avocado
Avocados are rich in vitamin E, which is great for moisturizing dry skin. Mash one, add a few drops of witch hazel—which dries oily skin and removes impurities—and apply for five minutes for smoother, softer skin.

Wash your face no more than twice a day; any more than that and you risk stripping the skin of its natural oils.

Step 4: Try a grapefruit
The acids in grapefruit exfoliate dead skin and boost cell renewal, leaving you with fresher skin, while the vitamin C increases collagen, making your face look smoother. Combine the juice of a grapefruit with enough sugar to make a paste, rub into damp skin in the shower, leave for one minute, then rinse.

Step 5: Try yogurt and honey
Honey softens and moisturizes dry skin, while yogurt has lactic acid that rejuvenates the complexion. Mix a teaspoon of honey with two tablespoons milk, heat it in the microwave for 15 seconds to slightly melt the honey, and apply for ten to fifteen minutes.

Step 6: Use peach and oatmeal
Like strawberries, peaches contain the natural exfoliant alpha-hydroxy acid, while oatmeal soothes and softens dry, flaky skin. Mash a ripe peach, add a tablespoon each of oatmeal and honey, and apply for ten minutes.

Don’t have a peach available? Plums and nectarines have alpha-hydroxy acid, too!

Step 7: Use brown sugar and milk
Brown sugar is a natural exfoliant that scrubs dead skin cells, while milk cleanses. Mix a cup of brown sugar with a tablespoon of milk, rub into the skin for a full minute, and leave on for 15 minutes.

Step 8: Grab a cucumber
Cucumber has cooling properties that reduce redness, inflammation, and puffiness. In a blender, mix together half a cucumber with a tablespoon of yogurt, apply to the face, and leave on for 20 minutes to feel refreshed.

Step 9: Use a banana
Bananas have natural fruit acids that slough off dry skin cells. Mash one ripe banana with two tablespoons plain yogurt and apply for 15 minutes for a revitalized complexion.

Step 10: Try an egg and lemon
Egg whites tighten pores in the skin while lemon is filled with skin-revitalizing vitamin C that can help remove blackheads and blemishes. Separate the egg white from the yolk, add a few drops of lemon juice, and apply for 15 minutes.

Did You Know?
You’ll replace each skin cell about eight times by the end of this year.
