• Natural yogurt
• Honey or aloe vera
• Coconut oil or facial moisturizer
• Bowl with chamomile tea
• Bowl with warm water
• Hand towel
• Cotton pads
Apply yogurt evenly over the face and neck. The lactic acid in the yogurt works as a natural peel and brings luminosity to the skin. In a bowl with warm water, soak a hand towel and gently remove the yogurt.
Tone skin with chamomile tea by soaking two cotton pads in the bowl and applying lightly to the neck and face. The tea will hydrate and soothe the skin.
Blend oats with yogurt (substitute sugar for a deeper exfoliation). Apply to the face and neck using circular movements for three minutes. This helps to remove dead skin cells. Remove the mixture from the skin and tone again.
Apply the honey or aloe vera mask with your hands or a facial brush and let it sit for 10-15 minutes. Honey has antibacterial properties, it also hydrates and helps to regulate oil production. Aloe Vera has countless benefits, like healing, soothing and regenerating.
Remove the mask and tone once again. Finally, apply a small amount of coconut oil which contains Vitamin E, or use a facial moisturizer.
