Orange peel against white background

Ingredients

Argan Oil – 3 – 5 drops
Plain Yoghurt – 2 Tbsp.
Lemon Juice – 1 Tbsp.
Honey – 2 Tbsp. (Organic, Raw)
Blueberries – A few
Blackberries – A few

Method

In a mixing bowl, or a blender, blend the yoghurt and honey till they mix well. The mixture should be smooth and curdle free, with honey and yoghurt mixing and blending well.

If you are using a blender, you can also add in the berries, to form a smoothie consistency. Or you can blend it separately and add to the yoghurt mixture.

Now, add the lemon juice, mix well and yippee, you are all set to apply the mask!

Always apply the mask to clean face. Let it sit for about 20 minutes and wash off.

Made more than you need? Leave the remaining mask in the fridge and use it within two days!

How does your face look like? Yep, looks radiant and fresh right? Want to know how?

Argan Oil

Argan oil does not clog your pores and is not greasy. Hence, it is ideal for all skin types, including acne-prone skin. The essential fatty acids in Argan oil nourish and hydrate your face, while regulating serum production. We all know Argan oil helps reduce scars and prevent acne outbreaks.

Yogurt

We have all heard about Yogurt and how healthy it is for your body. It is equally good for your skin too and your skin loves it! Make sure to use plain yogurt without any additions, including sugar!

Yogurt is a great moisturizer, rich in proteins and zinc and gently lightens your scars and spots.

Lemon Juice

Nature’s best skin brightener and lightener, this Vitamin C rich ingredient ensures your face looks radiant.

Honey

As mentioned in the ingredients list, use raw and organic honey for best results. Processed and refined honey lacks most skin-friendly properties and laden with antibiotics! They probably do more harm than good, for skin or for your body!

Raw honey gently exfoliates the skin, retains moisture and also, promotes tissue regeneration. It also helps lighten scars and pigments on your face.

Blackberry & Blueberry

Rich in antioxidants, they nourish your skin. Also, the Vitamin C and other active ingredients leave your skin glowingly radiant by lightening the imperfect areas of your skin.

When you apply this mask, it is sure to leave your skin supple and happy.

Tweaking the Recipe

Most of the above given ingredients are suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin. Those with sensitive skin can skip or reduce lemon juice, though it is a key ingredient in this Radiance mask. However, you can increase the berries to make up for it at least partially.

It is a good idea to add orange peel powder, or orange juice, though it is not as potent as lemon juice. Still, it is a worthy alternative for those with sensitive skin.

You can also consider adding saffron, in case you can’t stand both lemon and orange. If you are planning to add saffron, heat about half spoon of water till it is warm. When warm, soak 3 – 4 saffron strands and crush with your fingers after a minute and add to the mask.

After the mask, you can consider using Rose Water as a toner. Besides, the smell is invigorating and also leaves your skin shinning.

You can use this mask as a quick fix solution while having to head out, or make it a regular mask for reducing acne outbreaks, scars and also, for curbing other skin problems.

Since lemon is sun-sensitizing agent, don’t step out right away. However, we use this mask more often for occasions, don’t we? In that case, don’t forget your sunscreen!

With so many benefits, what’s not to like about this mask? After all, it is quite simple and the ingredients are often readily available. Isn’t it? Do let us know how it helped you!
