Edible Masks for Eyes and Face

Want a homemade remedy for natural skin care? Here are a few delicious recommendations to try!

Face Maybe you’ll spend too much time in the sun this Memorial Day and your parched skin needs some TLC. This cooling, soothing yogurt face mask is good for many skin types. You’ll need:

  • 1 tablespoon of yogurt at room temperature. Do no use low fat or non-fat yogurt.
  • 1 teaspoon of soft honey. If your honey is firm, pop it in the microwave to soften it up a bit.

Additions:

  • 3-4 drops of lime juice for oily skin
  • An additional teaspoon of honey for dry skin

Smooth mask onto skin and allow it to stand for 10 minutes. Remove mask with a warm, wet face cloth.

Eyes Eyes show signs of aging and lifestyle habits like no other part of the body. Unfortunately, most masks aren’t suitable for the delicate skin around the eyes. Try this eye mask for bright, youthful eyes:

Cucumber Drops are an age old secret. Many of us have tried placing cucumber slices over our eyes but its not the most comfortable or convenient of treatments. Try juicing the cucumber and smoothing the liquid around your eyes. You can still read and watch TV while its working. Juicing the vegetable releases its helpful properties faster.

As with any new skin care product, it is a good idea to do a sample test on an inconspicuous spot of your skin before applying the full mask.
