When uneven skin tone, wrinkles, acne or all three of these skin conditions are a problem, you’re not doing your skin a favor by slathering on harsh chemicals found in beauty products. Instead, give your skin a break by treating it with a natural, easy-to-make and happily affordable DIY face mask/cleanser. This is a no-brainer recipe and only needs 3 ingredients that are no hassle to find!
For this recipe you’ll need: aloe vera gel (5 tbsp.), plain yogurt (7 tbsp.), and crushed rose petals (2 roses). Mix all three ingredients together, and voila! Simple as that. Spread the mask all over your face, leave it on for 10 minutes, and then rub the mixture in circular motions to gently exfoliate before rinsing.
So what’s great about this recipe? Rose petals fight acne with their anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, help premature aging/wrinkles through antioxidants, and act as a toner for uneven skin tone. The zinc in yogurt also helps ward off acne and its lactic acid gently exfoliates skin while aloe vera refreshingly hydrates.
This recipe lasts one month to pamper your skin twice a week. You can save it for later or choose to share on a girls-night-in. Here’s to healthy skin!
