Today’s savings: $22.90

Heard about the benefits of a blueberry facial mask but don’t want to pay the steep price? Make a Maine blueberry facial mask at home.

Mash 10 blueberries with a spoon and add a tablespoon of plain yogurt, mixing the ingredients until smooth. Wash your face, then spread the mask on your face. Remove with water after 15 minutes.

This antioxidant-rich mask is perfect to treat sun-stricken skin and costs pennies to make, especially if you pick your own berries. The vitamins C and E in the berries repair and moisturize skin, and the lactic acid in the yogurt helps exfoliate UV-damaged layers of skin.

A similar 3.5-ounce jar of Ole Henriksen blueberry mask costs about $23; Lush Catastrophe Cosmetic brand blueberry products are well above that.

With berries in season, and the sun expected to be out in good supply this weekend, it’s a perfect time to try this home treatment.
