Fresh Fruit & Yogurt Face Mask

Fresh Fruit Face Mask

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.

Diy Fresh Fruit Face Mask

diy face mask

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.

  1. I actually took a tip out of Whole Living and started making my own oil cleansers and oil moisturizers for my face and it has made such a difference! I was working on a post about it for this week because I’ve been glowing and my friends I made it for are loving them too! I much prefer making stuff like that when I can.

  2. Interesting! I may have to looking into trying this!

  3. I have tried a yogurt/coco blend, and it is also super refreshing (not to mention hella tasty)!

  4. Looks delicious! Lush does some lovely natural facemasks not unlike this one if you ever want to try a pre-made one.

    This post reminded me that I have used just honey by itself as a face scrub. It’s excellent – very gentle but makes your skin feel really smooth and soft afterwards. Am wondering why I haven’t used it in ages!

  6. Hi Jen, I love your blog! Congratulations on the beautiful new addition to your family! I love the idea of a homemade mask. I love the font you used on the ingredients photo even more! What is the font?
    Thanks! Tara

  7. And if there are any leftovers … you can have a yummy snack! :)

  8. Brought to mind the Zit Remedy!

  9. I know I’d have to make at least two batches – one for a mask, one to eat!

    Just found your lovely space here and can’t wait to glean 3rd trimester maternity style tips from you! ;-)

    Your little family is precious.
