Homemade Facial Masks
Dear Beauty Queen: What is a good face mask that you can make at home?
Beauty Queen: The easiest, cheapest, most versatile mask you can make at home doubles as a container of yogurt. No need to spring for the organic, probiotic or fat-free-regular, run-of-the-mill fat-full yogurt contains exfoliating lactic acid to help smooth the skin. To create a targeted mask, you can add an extra ingredient or two that you probably have in your pantry. Crushed almonds can be used to make more of a scrub, add honey (some say it has antibacterial properties) or tea tree oil if you’re blemish prone, and oatmeal can soothe sensitive skin. Have fun experimenting, and odds are if an ingredient is good enough to put in your body, it’s ok to put on your skin.
