A Pantry Friendly Mask
Use what you already have. Mash 1/2 ripe avocado with 1/2 cup of plain yogurt and 1/4 cup raw honey. This is an incredible hydrating mask. Gently distribute over the face, avoiding the eyes. Relax. Wash off after 20 minutes.
If you don’t have avocado, mix 1/2 cup plain yogurt with 1/4 cup cornmeal and 1/4 cup grapefruit juice. Refrigerate to thicken. This combination creates an incredible clarifying scrub. Using your fingers or a soft washcloth, gently rub over the face avoiding the eyes and skin around the eyes. Wash off after a minute or two of gentle rubbing.
Enjoy your spa day!
