One of my favorites DIY maks by a long shot, I’ve used this one so many times, expecialy when I’m really stressed out any my skin feels like it want’s to crawl off my face.
What do the ingredients do?
Yogurt: This little beauty is moisturizing, helps clear acne, relieves sunburn and reduce discoloration. Like lemon some people don’t react too well to yogurt because of the live cultures in it.Â
Lemon Juice: Contains;Â alpha-hydroxy acids, citric-acid, vitamin C and is anti-bacterial. Over time lemon slowly reduces hyperpigmentation and scars owing to itâ€™s mild bleaching properties. It is also a mild natural exfoliant and good for (slowly) removing blackheads. Some people donâ€™t react too well to the citric acid in Lemons so I really wouldnâ€™t recommend more than a teaspoon for per face mask.
Honey: Is a naturalÂ antimicrobial, antioxidant, and hygroscopic (retains water). Its fantastic for skin which is irritated, mildly sun burnt and just in general needs a bit of love.Â
And the Rice?
Rice has emollient, exfoliating, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Itâ€™s also fantastic for controlling shine on the skin as it, like potatoes, contains starch (an astringent) which absorbs sebum (oil produced by the skin).
- Just because something is â€˜naturalâ€™ does not mean that you canâ€™t have a reaction to it, if your skin reacts negatively to any of the ingredients mentioned or if you have an allergy them DO NOT use this recipe.
