Do not try the "cure for pimples" facial, when I was done I had
two times as many pimples as before! It was a nightmare to
remove. My face is burning, the only good thing is that it
leaves your face feeling like a baby's bottom! (11/08/2007)
I read one of the things on here and thought it wouldn't work so
I adapted it to what I liked. It makes skin radiant, healthier,
and smooth! You'll love the smell too!
Lightly whisk the egg white to a froth then split the tea
bags and add the leaves to the egg, mix together, add the maple
syrup and baking powder whisk again then add the butter and
milk. Whisk once more then put in fridge to set and rise.
Take out of the fridge mix again (it will fall). Taking a
small amount rub all over your face and leave for ten minutes,
try not to move your face. After take a damp flannel and wipe
of, splash face with some warm water then cold. Pat dry then
leave for 10 minutes and wipe face again. This will leave your
face soft and silky. Yes I have tried it! It works wonders on my
dry cracked face. Once you have rinsed the residue the first
time, your face will be red and blotchy when you have finished
your face will be smooth and healthy looking! (12/04/2007)

Try this for your blemishes:
Make sure your face is clean. Get these round Bandaids and
dab the cotton part with olive oil and lemon juice mixed and
place them exactly on you blemish. Use it overnite for a week or
until it fades away. You will notice your blemish fade away from
Good luck. (12/14/2007)
Baking Soda has natural bacteria fighting properties which make
it ideal as a facial cleanser. I mix about 5-6 Tbsp of baking
soda with half tsp honey and a tsp or 2 of milk or water, enough
to make a pate. The honey acts as a adhesive and it also has
soothing properties. I add about 4-5 capsules of Vitamin E or
it's healing properties. Test a small patch of your skin to make
sure it doesn't burn before you do a full application. You can
keep this in the fridge for two weeks.
You can make a double batch and do you face every two weeks.
This works best if your face is clean, so using a facial bar,
gently wash and dry your face. Apply the mask and rinse after
15-20 minutes. You may follow with a toner. I make one by mixing
4oz of rose or lavender water, 1 tsp crushed lemon grass and 1/2
tsp ground ginger root. Shake and let sit 1/2-2 hours. Depending
on the strength you need, if you have sensitive skin steep less
time. Oily skin a little longer, strain. Test a patch of your
skin before you do a full application.
You can keep this in the bottle the water comes in. Keep it
in the fridge for up to 8 weeks. The cool toner feels good on a
freshly scrubbed face. This may not be a good toner for dry
skin. Follow with a non comedigenic moisturizer. The only two I
know of both work wonderfully: Clinique's Dramatically Different
Moisturizer, you'll know it because it's yellow, and Mary Kay's
Oil Free Hydrating Gel, it's lavender. I prefer the Mary Kay, it
gives me a glow. I hope you enjoy these recipes. They work well
for me. (12/29/2007)

Rub some sugar on you're face until you have no more dead skin
and then put you're favorite mask on you will feel fresh.
My acne isn't too bad, but obviously I'd rather have none. What
I do is take a tea bag (something like chamomile or 'Sleepy
Time') soak it in hot water, squeeze out the excess water and
just lightly pat it around your face. It smells good, feels
great, and I think it makes your skin look really healthy! Hope
it helps you! (03/09/2008)
What I have found that works well for acne that anyone can make
is to use this basil acne tonic. it is so easy to use!
all you need is:
Boil the water and add the basil leaves. Then let the water
sit in the fridge for about 30 minutes. Rinse your face with
this; it works.

This is so easy and does not take that long.
Stir in bowl (batter should be thin). Apply to face and rub in
for one minute. Let stand 15min. Then wash off.
You only have to use:
Mix until a creamy substance, if not creamy enough add a
little more flour, keep on for at least 15 minutes or more, it
really works. It might not be appealing, but it's wonderful in
the end! (04/11/2008)
Sun spots and redness can really mess up your love life. So
knock um dead with this spicy concoction. The mango infuses in
your pores and you achieve a sun kissed glow that will make any
guy salsa dance. OLE! Get your mango on.
Blend till it is thick. Spread over face with hands (don't be
afraid to get dirty ladies). Keep on for 12 minutes. Remove
with mint infused cotton balls (this has no affect on your
skin, but smells really good). Rinse with hot milk, followed by
cold milk to close pores.
There you have it for all you wannabe sun kissed beauties.
I tried this. It moisturizes as well as makes you glow.
Mix together and apply to face and neck. Wait 30 minutes until
dry. Rinse off. Skin glows and feels so soft. (05/26/2008)
A lot of masks involve toothpaste! Yea it works as long as you
rinse your face afterwards with cold water! If you leave it on
you end up with blisters and your skin burning when you wake up.
I tried Acne mask by pua. I'm making this comment to help people
make good choices about what face mask works best. My friends
and I made 2 different face masks at different times and we
tried this one out and it burned ALL of us not just me. I have
sensitive skin, not like my friends this burned us for future
reference don't use face masks that involve baking soda and
I have just created a great face mask that works on spots:
Stir until it is smooth and creamy. Apply to your face,
what's leftover can be refrigerated and used the next day!
