Flawless Friday: At-home beauty concoctions

At-home beauty concoctions are cooked up all over the place, ALL THE TIME! Some of them work, some — not so much. So how can you tell if something that generations of women in your family have been putting on their skin works? Well — you’ll have to ask a doctor, or chemist, or natural health practitioner that one.

Though we can’t determine whether or not your beauty secret is actually doing you any good, we can share one of our absolute favorite facial masks. We’ll let you in on our little secret. Well… if you watch Dr. Oz, it’s not much of a secret, because the creator of  this magnificent concoction shared it with his audience. She was a 60-something year old women and had absolutely flawless, wrinkle free skin. She was gorgeous. And here’s her magic potion.

Plain, all-natural yogurt

Lemon juice (fresh squeezed)

Sunflower oil

Apply this to your face, cleanse with a towel, and rinse, and your skin will look and feel AMAZING. Trust us. And — better yet, the good doctor says it works. In his own words

“It works! Yogurt has lactic acid, a type of alpha hydroxy acid that functions as an effective skin exfoliant. Sunflower oil helps seal in your skin’s moisture. Additionally, lemon juice is a natural whitener, and it inhibits melanin production, which causes age spots.”

Give it a go, and see your skin get more and more beautiful by the minute. (That’s an exaggeration, but you know what we mean).

What are some of your favorite recipes?
