Plain Yogurt (two big tablespoons)

Yield: 2 facials, use within 3 days.
Directions: Slice, peel and mash the avocado. Mix together with the honey and yogurt.
Slather this yummy skin nourishing mixture all over your clean face. After 15 to 25 minutes, rinse with warm water. Pat gently with a soft cloth and apply moisturizer. Rich Jojoba Moisturizer, containing jojoba and avocado, is a beautifully synergistic choice!
How it works:
Yogurt is rich in Lactic Acid which is an exfoliating AHA (alpha hydroxy acid) and moisturizer. It loosens up dry skin cells allowing nourishment to enter the skin, soothes dryness, alleviates flaking, and brightens skin tone.
Avocado contains omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins a, d, and e which deeply nourish and moisturize your skin.
Honey is full of antioxidants which fight skin damaging free radicals. It helps clear out pores, moisturizes and best of all, honey leaves your skin glowing!
Yogurt can be replaced with buttermilk, sour cream or sour milk – all good sources of lactic acid.
Don’t forget …. Beautiful Skin Starts Within
To achieve the best results from any skin treatment, start with the beautiful basics: Hydrate (drink plenty of water), Eat Well (lay off processed foods, eat a variety of natural foods including lots non-starchy veggies, and limit your salt intake), Sleep Well (get a good nights sleep every chance you get), Exercise (at least 3 times a week), Give Of Yourself (do something kind for someone else), and last but not least ~ Be kind to YOU!
Treat yourself well and enjoy~
