Kitchen Fridge Cures!

If your skin is in serious need of some pampering but you haven’t had time to stock up on beauty products, try our natural and additive-free alternatives.

** Tomato oask

**This is an astringent mask perfect for balancing out oily skin. Mix one ripe tomato and one tablespoon of yoghurt together and apply to the face, leaving it for ten minutes. Don’t use this if your skin is sensitive as the acidic juice of the tomatoes can irritate.

**Honey mask

**This is a rich, nourishing mask that is good for dry skin. Blend two egg yolks, two tablespoons of honey and a teaspoon of almond oil, spread over the face and let it dry for ten minutes. Rinse off for amazingly soft skin.

** Banana mask

**This is a conditioning mask for normal skin. Combine one ripe mashed banana, a tablespoon of natural yoghurt and a tablespoon of honey together to form a paste. Apply to the skin and leave for 10 to 15 minutes before washing, to reveal soft, glowing skin.
