The Kitchen Beautician

For: Dry Skin

Try: Hydrating mask from Emilie Davidson Hoyt, founder of Lather and Lather Spa.

  • 1 banana
  • 1 cup of yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 tablespoons rolled oats

Puree the banana, then add yogurt, honey, and oats. Blend well. Smooth the mask over damp skin, leave it on for 15 minutes, and rinse with warm water.

For: Soothing Red, Irritated Cheeks

Try: Rose-hip facial mist from Ole Henriksen, celebrity esthetician, spa owner, and product developer.

  • 3 1/2 ounces strongly brewed rose-hip tea
  • 3 1/2 ounces strongly brewed chamomile tea
  • 2 ounces aloe vera juice

Shake the ingredients together and pour the mixture into a mister bottle. After cleansing, generously spritz your face, then apply moisturizer to damp skin. Use in the a.m. and p.m. before bed.

For: Instant Radiance

Try: Scrub and mask for all skin types from June Jacobs, creator of June Jacobs Spa Collection.

  • 1 small handful dry short-grain rice
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon pomegranate juice

Using circular motions, gently rub the rice over your dampened face for 3 minutes. Rinse away and pat dry. Combine honey and pomegranate juice, apply the mixture to skin, and allow it to dry for about 15 minutes. Remove with a warm, dampened washcloth.
