I ran out of face wash last week and as I was walking up and down the aisles at Target trying to pick a replacement, it dawned on me that I should try to make my own. I have seen tons of diy facial scrubs & masks on Whole Living before and thought I would look for a recipe to try. I decided on this fruit and yogurt one because I already had all the ingredients in my fridge. Rowan was a little confused when I was making it- she thought she was getting a smoothie and then saw me rubbing it all over my face in the bathroom. I did end up making her a smoothie right after so I wouldn’t seem like a complete loon to her.
Kev may have mad a Save By The Bell reference (The zit cream episode) when I was walking around the house with it on, but I had no bright red face reaction like Bayside did. It was cool and tingly on my face when I put it on. It felt great. After I washed it off my skin felt super, super smooth. Pretty sure I will try this one again, and again and again.
1. In a blender add 2 Tbsp of honey and 2 Tbsp of yogurt. Blend together.
2. Add 1/4 cup of berries. Blend.
3. Add 1 Tbsp of freshly squeezed lemon juice. Blend.
4. Cover face with mixture. Wear around house for 10-15 mins.
5. Wash off with warm water.
Honey: Did you know honey is a mild antiseptic and will gently exfoliate your skin? Also, seals in moisture.
Lemon Juice: Is full of vitamin C and natural enzymes which help brighten the skin.
Berries: Blackberries are full of antioxidants (more so than blueberries and raspberries) and will keep skin looking young and fresh.
