I really love a DIY beauty treatment – it’s such a nice way to pamper yourself at home, and it can be such a fun way to spend time with your girlfriends, too! Just add a bottle of ice cold rosé, some sushi delivery, and you have yourself a party! This Detox Face Mask is one of my recent favorites because it is so great for those Summer breakouts and keeping skin clear and glowing. It’s much easier for skin to become congested in the warmer months from all the sun, sand, salt, chlorine, and sunscreen. Just whip up this simple recipe and reset! I’ve been doing it once a week and loving the results.
- ½ cup plain yogurt
- ½ cup Calcium Bentonite Clay
- 1 TBS (or one Trader Joe’s packet) Matcha powder
Mix all the ingredients together in a clean (non metal) bowl. A metal bowl will de-activate the clay! (Do not use a metal spoon either) Apply to a clean, dry face and leave on for 10-20 mins. Remove with a warm, damp washcloth. Glow on!
The yogurt is so moisturizing and calming, while the clay and matcha work to detox the skin and restore your glow. You could even use this all over the body if you wanted!
