Rather than spend a bunch of money on anti-aging beauty products, use what you already have in your kitchen to take care of your skin the all-natural way. Nature is chock full of powerful compounds that can be used to boost your skin, reducing and preventing the appearance of things like wrinkles and dark marks. With that in mind, we bring you a powerful blueberry face mask to fight skin aging.
For this mask, all you need is three ingredients that we bet you already have in your refrigerator: blueberries, lemon, and yogurt. Yup, that’s it! All three of these ingredients contain compounds that boost your skin health. Blueberries are packed with antioxidants and vitamin C which fight the free-radical damage which causes skin aging. Blueberries also contain some zinc and iron which are beneficial to skin health.
Lemon juice is an all-natural skin brightener thanks to its citric acid and vitamin C content. Including a small amount of lemon juice in this recipe helps to fade away dark marks like acne scars, or even dark circles around the eyes.
Yogurt is another skin-healing ingredient for several reasons. First, it’s moisturizing and provides a healthy pH balance on the skins surface, leading to a youthful glow. On top of that, the lactic acid can increase firmness of the skin, helping to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
To make our simple blueberry face mask, follow the instructions below.
- 10 ripe blueberries
- 1 tablespoon plain yogurt
- 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
- Mash the blueberries in a small bowl.
- Combine the mashed blueberries with the yogurt and the lemon juice.
- Spread the mixture on your face and neck using a face brush or your fingers. Allow it to sit for 15-20 minutes, then rinse with warm water.
For best results with this mask, apply it twice per week. In no time, you’ll see a noticeable change in the texture and brightness of your skin!
Here’s to a beautiful, healthy glow.
