Yoghurt & Honey Facemask

Yoghurt & Honey Facemask

Even though cosmetics is one of my favourite things to look at and read about - it is not something I spend much time, money or energy on. As I venture further into my mid-20's, I have a select few products which I use: my go to basic products Angels on Bare Skin, Eau Roma Water, Ultrabland & Cosmetic Lad from Lush Fresh Handmade Cosmetics. Iwill sometimes splurge on something from Mecca Cosmetica. The rest of the time I make my beauty products myself from the fresh ingredients I have at home.

One thing I learned from my many years at Lush and that really resonates with me is that skin care should be fresh and as natural as possible. It should basically be like the foods I eat!

This Yoghurt & Honey Facemask is so simple and a great go to when you feel like your skin needs to be tighter, softer and brighter.

Greek yoghurt is great for the skin - if you do not believe me you should speak with my boyfriends Yiayia who has been smothering herself in it for years and looks fantastic for her age! - Yoghurt naturally contains lactic acid - which acts as a scrub free exfoliant, dissolving dead dry skin cells which makes the skin softer and brighter. It also moisturises and it soothing to damages skin. Applying topically will give your skin a beautiful glow and tightening effect. Meanwhile eating yoghurt is also just as beneficial for the skin - the probiotics help keep your gut healthy and this has been shown to influence the radiance of skin and hair

Honey is a wound healer as well as anti-bacterial. The high sugar content mean that it acts as a barrier to the growth of microbes and honey also has he ability to dehydrate bacteria - drawing moisture from around it. Honey is also super softening for the skin also. I like to use local honey bought from one of Melbourne's farmers markets.

Yoghurt & Honey Facemask

Honey and yoghurt facemask. Sustainable healthy lifestyle
  • 1/2 teaspoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon greek yoghurt

Mix them together with a little spoon or whisk. Apply all over your face and neck - leave for 10 - 15 minutes. Your skin will start to feel tighter as it dries. Massage the mask into your skin gently with your hands and rinse off with warm water. Pat your skin dry and then finish with toner and moisturiser.
