The average woman spends over $300 per month on beauty products and cosmetic procedures, according to research. That equates to approximately $3,700 a year and over $220,000 over the course of a lifetime, though a lot of objects of expenditure can be replaced with home procedures. At the very least, we all can make our own face masks with natural ingredients instead of buying them.

Here at Bright Side, we’re all for spending time at home usefully, so here are a few recipes that can compete with store-bought facial products.

1. Peppermint and orange peels for smoothness

Ingredients:

  • A few leaves of fresh mint
  • Orange peels
  • 1 tsp of honey

Method:

Mix it all together in a blender and apply gently to the skin. The mask is great at clearing pores and making skin soft and smooth. Mint is an antibacterial, it’s good for skin with acne, and it also reduces redness. Orange peels have a lot of vitamin C which can extract dirt from the pores and give the skin a healthy glow.
