Yogurt facial mask
- Feb 26th 2009
You don’t need to spend a ton of money on beauty products to get great skin, one of my all-time favorite face masks is plain, organic yogurt. The lactic acid helps to gently exfoliate your skin while making it baby soft. Do a patch test first to make sure your body is OK with it, you can do this by putting a dab of yogurt on the inside of your elbow and waiting 10 minutes. If you feel any irritation, rinse immediately and do not continue.
Wash your face and lightly pat dry. While the skin is still moist, put about two tablespoons of plain yogurt all over your face and leave it for 15 to 20 minutes. Rinse well and pat dry.
This is also a very effective way to soothe a sunburn, after doing a patch test, put it wherever you need it, and leave on for longer if needed.
I try to do this once every few weeks.
