Equipment

  • Small bowl
  • Blender or food processor (optional)

Materials

  • 2 tablespoons Greek yogurt —always use plain (unflavored), and choose full fat for extra moisturizing benefits
  • 1–2 teaspoons raw honey

Instructions

  • Blend yogurt, honey, and any optional ingredients (see notes below) together until you get a creamy paste.
  • Then, apply to your face and neck liberally with a brush or your fingers.
  • Leave the mask on for 20 minutes and then wash off with warm water. Apply moisturizer and enjoy your bright, glowing skin!

Notes

Optional add ins:
  • Dry skin? Mash and add 1/2 of an avocado or 1 tablespoon of facial oil or 1 tablespoon of honey.
  • Oily skin? Add 1/2 teaspoon of turmeric powder and 1 teaspoon of green clay.
  • Acne prone? Smash 1/2 banana until smooth and add 1 teaspoon of turmeric or 1 drop of lavender or tea tree essential oil.
  • Dull skin? Squeeze 1 tablespoon of fresh lemon juice—the citric acid will also help brighten skin.
  • Aging skin? Blend in a few blueberries for a boost of additional antioxidants.
  • Redness and irritation? Add 1 drop of lavender essential oil and 1 teaspoon of aloe vera gel.
P.S. If you don't use all of the yogurt mixture on your face, you can totally eat the leftovers.
