You see a lot of Greek Yogurt on here, don’t you? I just love the stuff. It is so healthy and packed with protein, so it keeps you full for a long time. I use Greek Yogurt in my kitchen in so many ways.

Recently around here you’ve seen it served with my delicious Cardamom Granola.

And also in my yummy Curried Yogurt Dip!

But did you know that Greek Yogurt actually makes a fantastic face mask!?

I am sure you’ve seen body washes in the drug store that boast “yogurt” as a main ingredient. That’s because the lactic acid in the yogurt can do wonders for moisturizing and exfoliating the skin. The zinc also has anti-inflammatory properties that can help reduce swelling and redness from acne or irritation.

But, there is no need to go out and buy a fancy yogurt wash, when you can make your own Greek Yogurt face mask at home. And all you need is just three simple ingredients! I have sensitive skin, but because the ingredients in this mask are all-natural, they don’t irritate my skin at all.

Simply combine 1 Tablespoon of Greek Yogurt, 1 teaspoon of honey and a squeeze of lemon (optional for extra exfoliation) in a small bowl or dish. Using your fingertips or a brush, apply the mixture to your face and leave on for 15 minutes. Afterwards, rinse off the face mask with warm water and pat dry with a washcloth.

That’s it! My face feels so clean and soft afterwards.

 

What is your favorite way to use Greek Yogurt? Have you tried it on your skin before?
