Whether you’re trudging through the slushy streets of New York for Fashion Week or just making the morning commute, being outside for more than just a few minutes can wreak havoc on your skin–no matter how much moisturizer you slather on. Cue a peach yogurt face mask: the yogurt’s lactic acid will gently exfoliate dead skin cells while the vitamins A and C in peaches to help moisturize and brighten the skin as well as help regenerate skin cell production. Oh, and we recommend doing the mask in the morning, partially because your skin renews itself overnight, but mostly because you can eat the leftovers for breakfast!
What you’ll need for the mask:
- 1 sliced peach
- 2 tbsp plain yogurt
Combine the yogurt and peach slices in a blender (or mash with a fork) until it is a smooth mixture. Apply the mask with your fingertips and let set for 15-20 minutes. Rinse off with warm water.
What is your favorite face mask?
