Greek Yoghurt & Honey Face Mask


Face masks, I haven't treated myself to one in such a while so where better to start than in the kitchen, welcome back the kitchenista. I was using a new product to review and it didn't react well with my skin - at all. Needing a face mask that can help get my skin to a good point, Greek yogurt and honey face mask to the rescue.
Greek Yogurt is good for the skin it's full of protein which helps wrinkles by making the skin firmer. It can help calm dry, irritated or sensitive skin. Honey is fantastic for acne, it's a good antiseptic and can help the redness of your spots.

They suggest Manuka Honey which can be expensive. I just used Sainsbury's own brand of honey and greek yogurt, I mixed equal parts of each and I used about 2 tablespoons which proved too much. Using a brush to apply it onto the skin and left it on for 20 minutes and washed off with warm water. You can feel it getting tighter when it dries thanks to the honey and if your like me and need to feel or/& see the affects of a face mask then the honey addition is perfect. Helped calm my skin :)


Do you have a favourite go to face mask?

  1. I used to use this recipe when I have acne back in the day, it would help calm my skin down. I believe yogurt also contains lactic acid!

    It's difficult to resist the greek yogurt though, I could a eat a tub of this stuff on my own *hangs head in shame*.

  4. As I was saying when I tweeted you - this would be lucky to make it to my bathroom and not get eaten along the way! I love DIY beauty - its natural, cheap and easy :-)

    I like doing a honey and oat face mask, thats always nice and when my skin is playing up the aspirin and honey mask is lovely and effective

    1. I haven't done one in so long my skin was overdue for one. It's a safe one to use as long as your not allergic to any of the ingredients of course xo

    1. I keep seeing that Neutrogena face mask, but I've been so scared of skincare lately now after a break out (-_-) but yeah it's true being a kitchenista is time consuming it's like preparing another meal but for your skin lol. xo

  7. Ahh I couldn't imagine putting this on my face, it would feel so wrong and I'd just want to eat it! But if it really does work, then I need to try it! xo
