An easy, DIY anti-aging facial mask using ingredients that you most likely already have in the pantry. How simple is that?? Using North Coast RAW apple cider vinegar, this soothing mask heals, moisturizes and balances the pH of the skin leaving it soft, smooth, and glowing!
2 tablespoons plain Greek yogurt
2 tablespoons RAW honey
1 tablespoon North Coast RAW Apple Cider Vinegar
1 teaspoon Cinnamon
In a small bowl, mix all ingredients together until well blended. This will make enough for 2 masks.
Before applying the mask, make sure your skin is thoroughly clean and your pores are open and ready to take in some love. To do this, heat a pot of filtered water over the stove, with an optional splash of invigorating lemon juice. Once boiling, remove from heat and allow to cool for 4-5 minutes. When the water has cooled but still steaming, place your face over the pot (make sure any hair is pulled back and away from the face) and rest for 5-10 minutes. Allow yourself to take in big, deep breaths. The steam will also help clear the sinuses.
Once your pores are warm and softened, apply about two tablespoons of mask to your face and neck, avoiding the eye area. Then sit back and relax for 20-30 minutes while the ingredients do their job. Here’s what’s happening:
Greek Yogurt contains natural antibacterial and anti-fungal properties, which will naturally reduce fine lines and wrinkles. The lactic acid will help dissolve dead skin and tighten your pores.
Raw Honey is an natural humectant which promotes the retention of moisture and adds an energizing glow to the skin. Full of antioxidants, it is great for slowing down aging. It’s also antibacterial with significant healing properties and great for preventing and healing acne.
Raw Apple Cider Vinegar helps balance the pH of your skin and renews damaged skin. It contains alpha-hydroxy acids that will lighten the skin by taking away dead cells, reduce the size and pigment of age spots, and even smooth out dark patches revealing radiant healthy new skin. Apple Cider Vinegar, also antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral, contains malic acid which will draw toxins out of your skin and prevent pimples from forming.
Cinnamon also has antibacterial properties that help eliminate the bad bacteria that causes acne. It is known to reduce fine lines and lighten age spots, leaving your skin with a clean, youthful glow. Not to mention it smells fabulous!
After 20-30 minutes have passed, it’s time to wash off. Moisten a clean wash cloth with warm water and drape over your face allowing the mask to soften before wiping off. Gently remove entire area. No moisturizer necessary after this one, your skin will be soft and rejuvenated all on its own!
