At Home Spa Night

Spa Night's

Honey Yogurt Facial Cleanser

Everyone loves summer and the sun but, let’s face it, it plays havoc on our skin. The skin on our face is especially delicate and sensitive and over exposure to the sun, sweat and wind can age us prematurely. This spa recipe for all natural Honey Yogurt Facial Cleanser will help keep your skin looking fresh and smooth.
Yogurt contains lactic acid which is well known to sooth and soften the skin and stimulate collagen production. Honey is a natural moisturizer as well as contains antibacterial properties and vitamin E is essential for healing. If you have oily skin, the lemon juice will help remove the oil.

1 cup full fat yogurt
3 tbsp organic honey
1 vitamin E capsule
1 tsp lemon juice (optional if you have oily skin)

Place yogurt and honey and optional lemon juice in a bowl.  Pierce the vitamin E capsule with a pin and squeeze into the bowl. Mix well until thoroughly blended. Store in fridge in air-tight container or jar.

Apply a generous amount to freshly washed face and neck.  Massage for a few seconds and then let it rest on your face for a few minutes. Rinse completely with luke warm water. Apply your favorite moisturizer to your damp skin. Allow to air dry or gently pat off the excess with a towel.

Baking Soda Blackhead Remover

This gentle, quick & inexpensive facial uses simple at home items.  The baking soda's acid-neutralizing alkalinity and milk's lactic acid clear out pores and lightly exfoliate.  After many, many store bought lotions etc... this seems almost too  simple to work but it does!!!!

1 tbsp baking soda
1/4 cup milk
Mix the two together and rub into blackhead prone areas using your hands or a soft makeup sponge. Rinse and repeat - delicate enough to use by the eye area as well.
