Not sure but..

My church group has an annual "Yuck Night" where we pretty much pelt each other with eggs, pudding, spaghetti, and other slimy gooey foods. When I got home that night, my face was covered in pudding. When I washed it off, my face was incredibly soft, way softer than it was that morning. I'm not sure if it was the pudding or something else...but if you have some time, try putting some chocolate pudding on your face and then washing it off once it dries. It might be a cheap alternative to a mud mask!

Thirsty skin or hair

I use a combo of an egg, mayo, olive oil, and honey in my hair. This makes it really soft, shiny, and easy to brush. I also use egg, and honey on my face. Works Great!

Vit A liquid Capsules + Vit E Capsules

I mix one or two Vit A liquid capsules with two Vit E capsules. Sometimes I add Evening Primrose oil as well. I pain this on my face at night. The Retinol in the Vit A is great for reducing wrinkles and it's a lot cheaper than Retinol cream.

shine to face

i use strawberry + yogurt on my face as a mask sometimes. It does really add shine to my skin. It looks clean & polished. Strawberry is natural source of acid, it does a good job in suppressing acne on face. My skin is dry/v.sensitive & mild acne prone. It works really well for me.

skin softener

i use yogurt + honey+2 drops of lemon+ pinch of turmeric+finely grated cucumber face mask for mild acne prone dry/combination skin. I think it does pretty good cleansing and help reducing acne.

Food for your face

I have these 3 basic items with me always, even when travelling - sugar (collect those portable little packets that the fast food offers, just make sure it is fine sugar), honey in a small glass jar and a single serving of natural yogurt can be easily purchased from the store. I use the sugar as a face or body scrub when used with the facial cleanser or shower gel. The honey is added to the shampoo and conditioner when doing my hair. I also use this versatile honey for a quick facial - wet your face and use the back of a small metal spoon to spread honey on your face - it doesn't drag the skin and it helps to smooth a thin layer of honey. You can also stir in the yogurt to the honey for a more luxurious facial.
