Most of us are looking for ways to save money during this … what are we calling it these days … economic kerfuffle? Of course, one of the most logical places to look is at life’s nonessentials. You know, cable TV, restaurants, European vacations, and of course fancy schmancy cosmetics and beauty treatments.

In more robust times, I’ll spend $10 to $15 on a body care product that I really love. But how about this? For just a few cents, you can treat yourself to this fabulous at-home facial, and then eat the leftovers!

Ingredients and Equipment:

4 grapes, cut in half
1 tsp yogurt
1 tsp honey
2 washcloths

Step One:

Prepare the ingredients for your at-home facial, and place them in your staging area, probably the bathroom.

  1. Cut the grapes in half.
  2. Mix the yogurt and honey together.

Wet the washcloths, and place them on a plate in the microwave. You don’t need to warm them yet — just get them ready. (If you prefer to use the stove, just set the cloths in a steamer basket with a little bit of water underneath.)   

Step Two:

Cut the grapes in half and rub them all over your face (don’t forget your kisser!) in circular motions, squishing the grapes into your skin as they begin to run out of juice. And sure, go ahead and eat the skins when you’re done — why not? I’m not here to judge.

This sounds Delish! I have a hard time using facemasks because I am senistive to color and articficial fragerance. I also like the do-it-yourself recipies on the following link for The Queen of Green. She runs her own cosmetics line so you know they are tried and tested.
