Homemade Yogurt Face Mask with Honey for DIY Winter Beauty

Winter skin can be your best skin, but it doesn’t come easy. Cold, dry air paired with harsh winds and rain/snowfall can lead to skin that lacks moisture, redness and gets scaly or rough in texture. This applies not only to your exposed face, but also to your body, which doesn’t have the chance to see the sun so often and is constantly chafing against layers and layers of clothing. Luckily, it doesn’t take much to remedy the situation. The following yogurt face mask recipe will improve your skin’s health and appearance, from head to toe.

Yogurt contains high levels of lactic acid and zinc, which are great for promoting healthy skin. Yogurt can remove dead skin cells, smooth out fine lines, tighten pores, hydrate dry patches and give your skin that extra shine and glow. Lactic acid is a gentle exfoliant that gets the job done without harming sensitive skin.

According to one study, a yogurt-based face mask successfully improved the moisture, brightness, and elasticity of treated skin. But you don’t need scientific evidence to prove it – try the following yogurt face mask recipe and see for yourself!

All you need are two ingredients: yogurt and honey. The honey has it’s own skin-enhancing properties. Honey acts as an emollient and humectant and keeps the skin young by holding back wrinkle formation. Honey also regulates skin pH and prevents pathogen infections. When choosing honey, opt for raw, local and wildflower honey.

Lather up!
