Salon facial treatments can be expensive. So if you're on a budget or if you simply want a facial regimen that won't take a lot of your time, you can make your own facial mask to encourage healthier skin right in the comfort of your home.

Milk of magnesia is effective as a deep-cleansing facial mask. Moisten cotton balls with milk of magnesia and gently dab on the face, taking care to avoid the eye areas. Leave the milk of magnesia on your face for 10 minutes. To remove, use a washcloth that's been dipped in warm water. Follow it up with moisturizer.

A paste made from oatmeal, honey and lemon juice makes for a cheap but effective facial mask for those who have oily skin. Apply the paste generously on the face, leave it on for ten minutes and then rinse it off with warm water.

A good facial mask for dry skin consists of one egg yolk, a teaspoon of honey and 2 tablespoons of sour cream. Using a cotton ball, apply the mixture onto clean skin, leave it on for 15 minutes and then rinse thoroughly with warm water.

For normal skin, mixing half a cup of finely ground almonds and witch hazel into a paste makes a good facial mask. Apply the paste evenly on the face and leave it on for 15 minutes. Gently wipe the paste off with tissue or cotton cloth before rinsing the face with warm water.
