Many different things. I'm always researching online and there are so many to try out. I mostly use the avocado, honey or yoghurt mask.
You could try this: it's a watermelon one.
Take one slice of water melon, one table spoon of lemon juice and then Squeeze the juice of lemon over the watermelon slice and keep in the fridge for about 15 minutes. Take out the slice and cut it into bits and place it over your face. This will reduce body temperature and moisturizes it.
For the avocado one:
This mask combines avocados, which are rich in Vitamin E, with carrots, which are high in beta-carotene and antioxidants, and cream, which is high in calcium and protein. These ingredients will rebuild skin collagen, improve tone and texture, and fade age spots.
1 avocado, mashed
1 carrot, cooked and mashed
1/2 cup heavy cream
1 egg, beaten
3 tablespoons honey
Combine all ingredients in a bowl until smooth. Spread gently over your face and neck, and leave in place 10-15 minutes. Rinse with cool water and follow with your favorite toner.

It has all the ones I use :-)
I have a great regimen that I een use for emergencies with clients:
1tsp lemon juice + 1 tblsp water + a drop or 2 vitamin e oil applied with a cotton pad for scars or as a moisturizing astringent/ cleaner
whole milk applied with cotton pad to gently exfoliate, soften & nourish skin, rinse well with cool water
yogurt after too much sun or in this great mask that exfoliates, refines pores, softens & tightens skin for taking pictures: 1 tblsp yogurt, 1tsp chocolate or coffee powder, 1tsp honey
The girls swear by the mask before a date, weddings, prom etc. I do it in place of makeup.
Lactic acid in milk and yogurt exfoliates, the proteins nourish, and milk lightens and makes skin luminous! Lemon juice is a natural bleach and the vitamin c is great for acne. Honey softens and nourishes skin: I use the raw stuff for an extra boost! Chocolate and coffee both have antioxidants, refine pores and tone/tighten skin.
Tanning cream makes your body one shade so u hav very little redness so u dont hav to wear alot of foundation.
i wear tanning cream, foundation under my eyes, nose, and on redness but dont cake ur face cuz u look really fake tht way. dont bother with blush it just looks bad by the end of the day and blochy. wear dark masquera so it highlights ur skin. use dove soup to remove makeup it smooths out ur skin and then apply aveeno cream.apply tanning cream to ur body after every shower and on days u dont shower just put it on ur face cuz wen u wash ur face, it will be lighter thn the rest of ur body. i perfer liquid foundation so it looks real and not powdery
1)Sleep- Since the skin's repair processes are hard at work while you sleep, being sleep-deprived can actually worsen the look of your skin.
2)Hydrate- Drink lots of water.
3)Don't Touch- Never pick, pop, or squeeze those zits and blackheads. The dirt and oil from your hands will clog your pores and make your skin breakout even more. No to mention it can cause scaring.
well, what i do is i use scrbing pads to clean my face, but when i feel a pimpl or zit coming put toothpaste on it, believe it or not it works for me.. also if u were makeup idk if u do, idk use a mineral powder it worksbwith ur skin to keep it clear.. good luck! hope i could help!
I use lemon juice on my face like twice a day , it helps freckles and dark spots fade. And I also drink tons of water and use only powder based foundations like "Sheercover" or "Bare Minerals" . Hope I helped(:
I wouldn't say my skin is exactly flawless. In fact it's not at all but it's soft as a babys bum. The secret? Home remedies. They're most effective than anything I've tried on racks in stores. :-)
My skin is not perfect, but it is clear amd soft, all I use is the grape fruit wash 2 times a day, then after that I use oil free face lotion, and im in love with my skin now!
I agree with cookielove, natural homemade products work wonderfully and don't have all the chemicals that actually cause more damage than do good.
Drinking a good amount of water, not leaving the house without sunscreen and using a mild, natural cleanser with seaweed and no preservatives.
baking soda and water scrub!
drinking lots of water/green tea
just try and be nice to your face :)
What do you use?
