Feeling creative, then whip up these simple and inexpensive face masks in your own kitchen. Skincare expert Raechel Cunningham of the New York Laser & Aesthetics spa shares her secret recipes that will leave your skin looking vibrant.

Don’t pop that pimple, say bye-bye to acne with the Mama Mia mask.

1 clove of garlic minced
1/2 tomato with seeds finely chopped
1 tablespoon tomato juice
1 egg white

Whip all ingredients together and apply to skin. Then lie down so mask stays put. Leave on for 5 minutes.


Skin feeling a little dry? Then try the Strawvocado mask.

1 mashed strawberry
1 teaspoon honey
ΒΌ avocado meat mashed
1 teaspoon wheat flour

Whip together and apply to skin. Leave on 3-5 minutes.


For those of you with normal to dry skin, go for the Blue Banana concoction.

3-5 blueberries
2-3 circular slices of a banana
1 tablespoon wheat flour

Mash together and apply to skin. Leave on 3-5 minutes. If mask is too firm, add a drop of apple juice.
