Evening Lemon Yogurt Mask 🍋

September 23, 2021

We're clearly big fans of limited ingredient skincare and this exfoliating and moisturizing mask is one to add to your lineup. Plus, chances are very likely that you already have the two ingredients in your kitchen! Grab a lemon and some yogurt for this evening's happy skin moment. Both lemons and yogurt contain alpha hydroxy acids (AHA) that are super beneficial for your skin's health :)

 

The lactic acid in yogurt is an AHA that helps slough off spent skin cells for smooth and moisturized skin, while the citric acid in lemons is an AHA that is gently exfoliating, evening out skin tone and soothing inflammation.

 

What You Will Need 
3 tablespoons plain or greek yogurt
1/2 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
stirring utensil
small mixing bowl
makeup brush (or clean fingers will do!)
 
Process
mix yogurt and lemon in small bowl
apply to face (with a friend? apply each other's masks for mini spa feel)
set timer for 15-20 minutes, perfect amount of time sit silently with your thoughts, or doodle with watercolor paints or read Marlee Grace's 167 things to do alone after the sun goes down
~~~
As with all exfoliating rituals,
we suggest using the lemon yogurt
mask monthly, weekly, or seasonally,
and please apply this face mask
in the evening as AHAs can increase
your skin's sensitivity to sunlight. 
Depending on amount used,
and level of gloopiness,
you may want
to apply when
soaking in 
tub :)
