      CHOCOLATE FACIAL MASK

      This mask will soften your skin. The cocoa powder is an antioxidant which protects skin from free radicals. Oats help to soften the skin and honey is an anti-bacterial agent that deeply cleans and opens up clogged pores.

      1/3 cup cocoa powder
      1/4 cup honey
      2 tablespoons of heavy cream
      3 teaspoons of oatmeal powder

      Mix ingredients together, smooth onto face, wait 10 minutes, then rinse off with warm water.

        • PINEAPPLE POWER MASK

          Pineapple contains an enzyme called bromelain, which lifts dead skin cells and debris from clinging to your pretty face. Try this mask when your skin looks dull and lackluster.

          1/2 cup fresh pineapple chunks
          3 tablespoons cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil

          Mix ingredients in blender until smooth. Apply a thin layer to face. Lay back and think tropical thoughts for 5 to 10 minutes.

          3 to 5 drops rose essential oil

        • BOHEMIAN OATMEAL MASQUE

          Oatmeal is mild, soothing and acts as a gentle exfoliator while the egg white tightens the skin and the honey draws in moisture.

          2 tablespoons dry oatmeal
          2 teaspoons honey
          1 egg white

          Mix until you have a thick paste. Apply to clean skin and relax for 15 minutes. Rinse with tepid water and finish with a splash of cool water.

        • Peel-Off Mask Recipe
          This mask will peel off your blackheads and tighten your skin. It is very strong, so those with sensitive skin may want to rinse this off instead of peeling it off. Do not use if you have acne.

              * 1 tablespoon of unflavored gelatin

              * 1 1/2 tablespoons of cold milk

              * 1 egg white

              * Vitamin E Oil (break open a capsule, or buy in a bottle)

          In a small pan mix the unflavored gelatin and the cold milk. Stir until melted over a very low flame. Once melted, remove from heat and let the gelatin mixture cool slightly. Then add one egg white. Mix until smooth, and when cool enough to touch, apply evenly over face. Do not apply on, or directly under, your eyes or on your upper lip. Apply quickly before mixture hardens in pan. Apply enough to cover your skin but not too thickly. Lie on the couch and let it dry completely, about 30 minutes. Once dry, lift up a corner under your chin and peel off lightly in an upward motion. This will really tingle. Rinse face with lukewarm water and apply vitamin E.

          Tip: The vitamin E is for moisture. If you prefer, you can use your favorite moisturizer on your face instead.
