DYI – Frugal Facials

honey recipes

DYI – Frugal Facial

We all want to keep our skin looking young and fresh however, spa treatments and professional treatments can be astronomical in price… definitely not a priority for us who live frugally. Well, I have a solution. You can make great facial masks with things that are already in your pantry. These are my own personal recipes that I have or my daughters have used and they really work.

Do you or one of your teens have to deal with acne? My oldest daughter suffers from it. We spent hundreds of dollars at the dermatologist with no change in her skin. Not to mention the medications they prescribed burned her skin. She and I did some homework and this is our solution for acne.

Acne Mask:

5 aspirin -I buy the uncoated generic type at  CVS. They have a bottle that has 1000 tablets for $10

2-3 Tbsp. Greek yogurt

1 Tbsp raw honey –

I use my Mortar & Pestle to ground the asprins. Mix yogurt and honey. Add ground aspirin. Fold until aspirins are disolved. You will have a paste. Coat face, leave for 10 to 20 minutes. Wash off with warm water.

We do this mask twice per week until breakout is gone.  My 13 year old has just started this mask. Hence the 1000 count bottle of aspirin….LOL. This mask is really inexpensive and it really works.

Next, I will share our Moisturizing Mask.  Making oatmeal for breakfast? Save a  couple of teaspoons for your mask. Here’s what you do…

2 Tbsp. Greek yogurt

1 Tbsp. raw honey

1-2 Tbsp. cooked oatmeal

Mix everything into a paste. Smooth over face in circular motions. Leave on for 10-15 minutes. Wash off with warm water.

Finally, the our Exfoliating Mask for irritated skin.  This is probably the most expensive of the mask because of the price of the nuts. I’m working on a substitue and when I find one as effective, I’ll let you know.

1 Tbsp honey

1 plain Greek yogurt

1/2 tsp. lemon juice

2 Tbsp. finely round almonds (again, I use the mortar & pestle)

Mix all ingredients. Rub in circular motion. Leave on face 10-15 minutes. Wash with warm water.

Well, that it. I hope you enjoy your frugal facials.

Bar Keeper’s Friend… Cheap Cleaner, Many Uses

Bar Keepers Friend… Cheap Cleaner, Many Uses !!!!

I thought I would share with you one of my secrets to keeping my pots and pans in tip top shape…

Yes, I am one of those women that ask for kitchen gadgets for special occasions. For one of my anniversaries (I can’t remember which one, it’s been awhile), my husband presented me with the most beautiful set of All Clad cookware.  I wanted  good quality cookware that would last for many, many years. I believe in buying good stuff so you don’t have to replace it, even if it cost a little more in the beginning.

Anyway, I quickly learned how quickly the bottom of my shiny pans became black from use.  Enter… Bar Keepers Friend. This stuff is amazing. Just sprinkle a little on, add a little water to make a paste, and gently scrub with a non-scratch sponge.  In no time at all it gets all the dirt and grime off you pans. Remember, cleaning your cookware properly will keep things from sticking!!

I also use BKF for cleaning the tile floors and showers, the bath tub, the kitchen sink, my counter tops, the rims on my car, my patio… just about everything.

The best part is this cleaner is very inexpensive.  The powder form (IMO is the best) is under $2 at your favorite store.  Use this $.50/1 Bar Keepers Friend Coupon…A little goes a long way.  I have had my cookware for about 10 years now and it still looks brand new!

New Beginnings


New Beginnings:

Good morning. As most of you may have noticed, I am not Kristi. She has decided to take a new path and I want to be the first to wish her the best of luck!

So a little about me… I am a wife and mother of four children ages 17 to 10. I have three daughters and a son.

Growing up in south Alabama taught me many things.  My family was very poor and being frugal was not a choice but a necessity.   Fast forward 25 years and even though I am no longer living in poverty, I still choose to be Frugally Thrifty.  Why would you pay full price when you don’t have to?

So grab your purse and follow me on the journey of making your life Frugally Thrifty!
