7 Inexpensive Face Mask Treatments

Your Cupboard

* MAYONNAISE. Apply whole egg mayonnaise on
your face (right from the jar) for about 20 minutes.
Rinse with cool water.

* PEACH & BRANDY. Mash up a peach (use ripe,
canned or frozen) and mix in a tablespoon of brandy.
Leave it on for 20 minutes, then rinse off.

* TOMATO MASK. For oily skin, mash up a ripe
tomato and leave it on for 15 to 20 minutes. Rinse
with warm (not hot) water.

* BANANA MASH. Mash up a very ripe banana.
Add just enough honey to make a soft pulp. Apply
over face and hair. This is such a great firming mask
that aging movie stars have been known to put it in
the cups of their bras to make their breasts "perky."
(Just make sure that you don't use too much honey
and you use a sturdy bra.)

* HONEY MASK. Apply pure honey (straight
from the bottle) to your face and neck. Allow it to
set until dry (about 15 minutes). Rinse with very
warm water.

* MILK OF MAGNESIA. Apply it straight from
the bottle. Let it dry for about five to ten minutes.
Rinse off with warm water, then gently pat your
face dry with a fluffy towel.

* PEPTO BISMOL. This is a face mask particularly
suited for those with sensitive skin. In the same way
that this product coats the stomach, it gently caresses
the face. Apply it straight from the bottle, using a
cotton swab. Allow to dry, then rinse with cool water.
