I love DIY bath and body products! There’s something rewarding about creating your own from ingredients you select and purchase yourself, and there are so many fabulous benefits packed inside this creamy homemade mask!
This mask is great because the citrus scent can fire up your mood, and the chilled aloe will help reduce puffiness. And let’s not forget about the probiotics in the Greek yogurt. Probiotics have been touted for years as the key to a healthy digestive system. Through recent studies, the American Academy of Dermatology has found topical application also decreases skin sensitivity and redness, and can result in a reduced appearance of fine lines. Applying probiotics topically might also fight rosacea and acne bacteria too!
3 Tbsp Greek yogurt
1 Tbsp chilled Aloe Vera
1 Tbsp Honey
1 to 2 drops Lemon Essential Oil
Mix all ingredients in a small bowl. Apply to dry skin. Let sit for 15 minutes, then rinse off.
Cheers to porcelain skin!
