Watermelon & Yogurt Face Mask
Amazing Watermelon Face Mask
Who doesn't love going to the spa and getting gorgeous, pampered skin? As amazing as it would be to have that ,most of us don't have the time or the money to go to the spa once a week for a facial treatment. If you are like me, it would be rather hard to try and make it to the spa once a month. That doesn't mean that we should have to sacrifice great looking skin! This watermelon face mask is proof of that. You will enjoy this extremely moisturizing mask. because it leaves your skin hydrated and dewy but never ever oily. It doesn't clog your pores at all. And it will not leave any type of film or residue like you can get with so many store bought masks. This is super fast and easy to make. Plus, it is affordable on any budget!
Watermelon is the first (and my favorite) ingredient in this hydrating mask. It just has so many wonderful benefits! This fruit is completely packed full of vitamins A & C. It is also such a great source of antioxidants, which are so very important in helping our bodies to rid themselves of free radicals! Plus, this super fruit has vitamin B and electrolytes. The electrolytes in watermelon help to keep us hydrated. Watermelon also has higher lycopene concentrations then any other fruit or vegetable. Lycopene has been said to help prevent certain types of cancer and heart disease. With all of this, it's easy to see why it is such an amazing ingredient for a face mask.
Yogurt is the only other ingredient that we use in this amazing face mask. This stuff is pretty fantastic all on its own! Because yogurt is so rich in zinc, it is great to use for evening your skin tone as well as shrinking your pores and fighting and preventing acne! Yogurt basically can act as a natural astringent for your skin. It also contains lactic acid which has been proven to help aid in hydration. Lactic Acid is an alpha hydroxyl that is essential for your skin and helps to defend against pre mature aging.Yogurt has all of these great benefits all wrapped up in a luxurious, rich, and creamy texture. It feels like silk spreading across your skin. You will feel completely pampered.
