1. Greek Yogurt Mask. I always have Greek yogurt (almost exclusively Fage) on hand; this is mainly because I used to love sour cream and would eat it all the time. We're talking multiple times per day. This was clearly prior to realizing how fatty it is - you live / you learn. Now I chow down hardcore on Greek yogurt because it's great for your skin, keeps that digestive tract in check, and tastes amazing on twice-baked potatoes (true story). But on top of all that, Greek yogurt makes an unreal face mask - no additional ingredients necessary! Just slap some straight from the fridge onto your face, leave for 10 to 15 minutes, and rinse off with warm water. The lactose enzymes in the yogurt will dissolve dirt and tone down redness and irritation, leaving your skin bright, clean, and soft.
3. Chocolate Mask. Chocolate's not just for eating (although that's still good, too, duh). It's overflowing with antioxidants and a touch of caffeine which leaves skin de-puffed and brighter after a face mask by improving blood flow to the skin. Mix some cocoa powder - LIVE for this stuff - with finely ground coffee beans to kick the caffeine up a notch and really wake that skin up. Add in some cold pressed organic coconut oil, and you've got yourself an unbeatable concoction. Slather on and leave for 15 to 20 minutes, then rinse with lukewarm water (I also like to end with a splash of cool to close up those pores).
