Ingredients:

2 Tablespoons Organic Plain Yogurt

1 Tablespoon Raw Organic Honey

Prep:

Combine the two ingredients in a mixing bowl. Warm the honey for a few seconds in the microwave so it’s easier to mix with the yogurt. Make sure it’s not hot because it can burn your skin. Once blended well, apply the mixture to your clean face and neck and leave it on for 20 minutes. After 20 minutes, rinse it off with warm water and a washcloth then gently dry with a soft hand towel. Apply an oil-free moisturizer to your face and neck to retain moisture in your skin and keep the pH levels balanced.

Benefits:

This mask is wonderful for anyone that suffers from dry skin and/or acne. It’s gentle enough to use on all skin types and is safe on the most sensitive of skin, as long as one is not allergic.

Organic plain yogurt is great for the skin because it will leave your skin glowing due to the low amount of acidity in it, which will restore your natural pH balance. It is also great for adding hydration to the skin and is wonderful for soothing sunburns and irritated skin. If your skin is inflamed and red from acne, yogurt will ease the pain and redness. It’s a miracle drink for your skin. Make sure you don’t use a reduced-fat or non-fat yogurt because the more fat in the yogurt, the more it benefits your skin. It’s important to use only organic yogurt if it’s available since no chemicals or pesticides are added which can irritate your skin.

Honey is loaded with antimicrobial and antibacterial properties and is a natural antioxidant. Honey fights microbial infections that cause acne without irritating your skin. It will also kill acne-causing bacteria so it will instantly reduce infections and acne from spreading. Honey gently pulls out impurities from your pores that would normally stay clogged with excess oil, acne-causing bacteria, and dead skin cells, minimizing the growth of pimples.  It will also help restore your skin’s texture and reduce damage done to your skin by the sun and daily environments you come in contact with. Your skin will feel soft, smooth, and fresh after using this mask. It’s safe to use twice a week…Enjoy!

      Hi Rachel,

      First let me introduce myself, I am esthetician with many years of experience in the area of skin care. Your question deserves an answer because it’s natural people have not idea how many times a day they can use a product on the face. Never use daily, mask, scrub, astringent, waxing or any product that may irritate, burn or create a deep demage into your skin. Especially if you have acne, never ever use products that can develop more acne. A mask is good twice in the month. Yogurt contains lactic acid and use it as a mask twice a day can worsen the problem that you are trying to heal. Be careful.

        Interesting that you mentioned this. When I saw this mask with Yoghurt as its base, I wondered. This is because I have found that if I eat diary products, this causes me to break out a lot. I have had to cut out dairy from my diet. I just wondered if it was safe to then use yoghurt which is a dairy product as a mask.

          Sugar and dairy are the same. Eating sugar/dairy can cause breakouts, but applying sugar/dairy topically can stop breakouts! I know sounds crazy but it’s true.

    Hi, I was wondering I apply the mask everyday and its annoying having to make some each night can I just store it in the refrigiater and save till my next use?? Or will it not work as well…

    I use a honey/clay mask twice a day with no issues. When I did masks only a couple times a week they did nothing for my acne. Using a mask every day is actually reducing my breakouts.

    I use this mask 3 times a week and have had constant acne problems my whole life BUT THIS WORKS. I have tried various cleansers and soaps but none helped. This calms my breakouts and reduces the size and redness and swelling. I’ve also add a few drops of lemon juice sometimes and that works better. This mask is a life saver.
