Last year I posted my el cheapo (but all natural) microderm recipe with baking soda. Now I’m going to post my 2nd el cheapo at home facial recipe.
This one involves:
First, mash up one or two strawberries.
Add a tablespoon of plain yogurt and mix together.
Slather on your face and leave on for about 10 or 15 minutes. It gets a little sloppy, so just pull your hair back and lay on a pillow. Rinse the mask off gently with cool water and pat your face dry.
Strawberries are full of anti-oxidants, vitamin C and salicylic acid. Plain yogurt is full of lactic acid which helps slough off dead skin and tighten the remaining skin underneath. Also, I’ve been told the acids in both strawberries and yogurt help diminish age spots, brown spots, etc. My brown spots are still here sadly, but they do seem to be getting lighter and smaller.
While going to the spa and getting a full facial is a real treat, these at home remedies aren’t too shabby either. Plus I love that they are all natural and you know exactly what’s going on your skin.
Coming up, I’ll show you part 3 of my el cheapo at home facial steps.
Oh, and guess what another huge benefit is for making this strawberry mask?
That’s right, strawberry shortcake! And you know I made some as soon as I was done with my facial mask.
Love, strawberry shortcake and tighter pores,
