Being a natural redhead, my face likes to try to match my hair color and turn red. I don’t even have to be embarrassed and I can feel my cheeks blush. With this being said, I was so excited when Lauren Conrad posted this greek yogurt face mask for softness and redness. Thanks Lauren!
DIY Beauty: My Greek Yogurt Mask
I love at-home beauty remedies that can be whipped up using only a few readily accessible ingredients. Today I am going to share one of my favorites with you: My Greek Yogurt Mask. It’s very simple and only consists of two ingredients—Greek yogurt and a probiotic capsule (although the probiotic can be optional as the yogurt alone is still very effective). Greek yogurt contains lactose enzymes, which dissolve dirt and nourish your skin. Essentially, it works like a cleanser while the probiotic invigorates your skin leaving it with a lovely glow. This combination also helps to reduce redness and clam breakouts. Not bad, right?
What You Need:
1. cotton balls
2. probiotic capsule
3. cold, plain Greek yogurt
How To Do It:
To make this mask, simply split open the probiotic capsule and mix it into 3 or 4 tablespoons of Greek yogurt in a small bowl or dish. Using a cotton ball, apply the mixture to your face in an even layer. Let the mask set for 10 minutes then rinse with lukewarm water and pat dry with a towel.
Note: If you do not have a probiotic capsule, this mask is still very effective even if it’s only Greek yogurt! Also if you are lactose intolerant you might want to give this ice facial a try instead.
My skin always feels so soft and silky after I do this mask. I also notice a major reduction in redness…
