Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons powdered buttermilk

  • Rinse with warm water and gently pat dry.

This recipe makes enough for one facial, but can easily be increased and stored in the fridge for several days.

Skin Benefits:

  • Carrot – Turns out carrots aren’t just good for your eyesight! Carrot juice is packed with vitamins A and C, potassium, carotenoids, antioxidants, antifungal, and antibacterial substances. It can help reduce inflammation, acne, redness, signs of scarring, and the appearance of wrinkles. It can also provide hydration to your skin and even out your skin tone.
  • Buttermilk – Buttermilk, even in powdered form, is an excellent way to soften and moisturize your skin, soothe irritation or burns, and naturally cleanse your skin. Buttermilk is also ideal for those with oily skin, as it helps prevent excess oiliness.
