Fitness Friday ~ Love Your Skin

Yogurt, honey and mixed berry mask
It dawned on me that what I put on my skin is just as important and what I put into my body and for the most part a lot of the beauty products I have in my bathroom probably should be tossed out.  Recently I ran out of facial wash perhaps instead of running to the store to pick up a new bottle I should try to make my own cleansers for my face instead.  I have seen tons of diy scrubs and masks on Pinterest before and thought I would make my own. I decided on this fruit and yogurt one because I already had all the ingredients in my fridge. Jessica was a little confused when I was making it- she thought she was getting a smoothie and then saw me rubbing it all over my face in the bathroom. I did end up making her a smoothie right after so I wouldn’t seem like a complete loon to her.
The mask was cool and tingly on my face when I put it on. It felt great. After I washed it off my skin felt super, super smooth. Pretty sure I will try this one again, and again and again. 

How to make your Fruit Face Mask:

1. In a blender add 2 Tbsp of honey and 2 Tbsp of yogurt and blend until smooth.

2. Add 1.4 cup of berries. (blackberries, blueberries, raspberries, strawberries whatever you have kicking in the fridge will do!)Blend.

3. Add 1 Tbsp of freshly squeezed lemon juice. blend.
4. Cover face with mixture and leave on for 10-15 minutes.
5. Remove with warm water and a soft face cloth.
Did you know?

Honey is a mild antiseptic and will gently exfoliate your skin while locking in moisture.
Lemon juice is chalked full of vitamin C and its natural enzymes help brighten the skin.
Blackberries are full of antioxidants and will keep your skin looking young and fresh.
Use this mask weekly to knock off dead skin cells and rejuvenate the skin.
