One of my all time favorite natural mask is the raw egg white mask! Keep your egg shells after use, because that is enough to apply onto your face as a mask. You may also add a few drops of honey into the mix, but egg white by itself is also sufficient. If you want to go further, you can peel the thin egg skin layer and to place on top of the applied egg white.
