This is an old favourite of mine. My friend and I used to make this when we were 14 before the kiddie disco on a Friday evening, ah the memories (at that time I took my fashion inspiration from the Spicegirls, Baby Spice to be exact).
This recipe is best suited for normal to oily skin which makes it great for those prone to breakouts. You only need three ingredients, occasionally I have done it with only two (leaving out the essential oil). This recipe contains AHA’s and lactic acid. The AHA’s in the raspberries act as a gentle exfoliator and the lactic acid in the yoghurt (yes, that’s how we spell it this side of the Atlantic) brightens the skin.
- 2 tablespoons of plain yoghurt
I am posting my first natural beauty recipe. This one is great for dry, dehydrated, sensitive or mature skin.It’s nourishing and moisturising. It takes 5 minutes to make and is so much cheaper than buying a mask. Best of all, it has no harsh chemicals and preservatives.
This recipe makes one treatment.
- 1 tbsp heavy cream
- Half of a very ripe, small, peeled, peach
Use a pestle and mortar or a bowl and fork tomash the peach, combine cream and smooth.
Smooth mixture on to your face and neck lie down and leave for 30 minutes. Because of the creamy consistency use a towel on your hair in case it drips. Rinse with a warm cloth (muslin is best if you have one but an ordinary face cloth will be fine)
Enjoy gorgeous skin!
I will post mask recipes for other skin types soon.
