DIY Beauty Fridays: Moisturizing Face Mask

2 weeks to go and not only is my skin breaking out BUT it's super dry and flaky. Seriously, I feel wretched!  Tonight is, without a doubt, a pamper-me-by-having-a-long-bath-and-scrubbing-my-face kind of night.

Since my skin is really flaky in addition to needing moisture, I will be using two different versions of the same type of mask, which has a yogurt base.  Yogurt is fabulous for moisturizing and by adding one extra ingredient to the mask, you can turn it into a great scrub too!

Yogurt Face Mask

2 TBSP Greek yogurt (try not to use fat free in this recipe as your skin LOVES the fattiness)
1 TBSP Honey (unpasteurized)
1 - 2 TBSP Oatmeal (cooked and cooled - personally, I use rolled oats)

Mix all ingredients together and apply to cleansed face.  Let sit for 10 - 15 minutes before removing with warm water.  **NOTE: if you're wanting to make the scrub version, make a second batch and add in either brown or white sugar.  Ensure the mixture is completely cold or else you'll have a sugary disaster**

This is actually my go-to face mask and scrub.  I love the way it feels on my skin and the way my skin looks after the treatment is done.  It's easy, cheap and effective.  EXACTLY what I need with only two weeks till the wedding.

Happy masking ladies!

  1. Hmmm...this looks interesting. I have heard that yogurt is a good skin care ingredient. Well. I am interested in trying this out. I usually prefer trying out homemade skin care products for I believe that they are safer for the skin.
