Hello, Spring! We spring clean our house, so why not our skin? After a long winter, our skin is often left feeling dull, dry, flaky, and lifeless. A facial will give it the care it needs to shed those dry flakes, brighten up that complexion, and create a healthy face all around.
Making your own facials is amazing for several reasons. Not only are you saving tons of money by doing it yourself, avoiding harsh chemicals by using all-natural ingredients, and pampering your skin, you are also giving your face the extra boost of nutrients it needs to stay healthy and radiant.
Welcome the warm weather and prep your skin for the sunny months ahead with this easy, affordable, and simply delicious DIY strawberry yogurt facial. You probably have most of the ingredients on hand already! An added bonus – this facial smells (and tastes) amazing, and only takes a few minutes to put together. .
Strawberry Yogurt Facial
- 5-6 ripe strawberries – filled with antioxidants, vitamin C, and salicylic acid
- 2 tablespoons ground almonds – perfect for a gentle exfoliation
- 3 tablespoons yogurt – gently exfoliates due to lactic acid and provides hydration and radiance
To grind the almonds, use a coffee grinder or blender until almonds resemble small crumbs.
In a separate bowl, mash the strawberries very well. Add yogurt and ground almonds and mix.
To apply, spread the strawberry mixture all over your face and let sit for about 20 minutes. Wash off with warm water and pat dry.
This facial is perfect for dry skin, or skin that suffers from breakouts. However, it can be beneficial for all skin types.
