For this refreshing (and tasty!) treatment, mash up a handful of ripe strawberries with 3 tablespoons of ground almonds. Add 2 tablespoons of yogurt and mix until the mixture has a pasty texture. Apply it to your face and rinse for soft, smooth skin. Use it within 24 hours, making sure to keep it refrigerated if you’re not using it immediately.

This treatment, meant especially for younger people with oily skin, requires a package of dry yeast, which you can easily purchase if you don’t already have some. Mix the contents of a 0.25-ounce (7-gram) packet with three drops of lemon juice and 2 teaspoons of water until it forms a paste. (Add more water as needed to get it to the right consistency.) Spread the mixture on your face and let it sit for ten to 15 minutes, then rinse off, for a refreshing deep clean. These are the best beauty products for oily skin.

Honey facial masks

For this homemade face mask, start with 2/3 cup of instant oats and heat them in a 1/2 cup of hot water for about five minutes until the mixture thickens. While you’re waiting, toss half a cored apple into a blender with 2 tablespoons of yogurt, 2 tablespoons of honey, and one egg white. Blend at a pulse for 45 seconds, then add the heated oatmeal mixture. Blend at a pulse for another 20 seconds. Apply the mixture to your face and let it sit for 15 minutes for maximum nourishment.
