Summer is just around the corner! Make sure you are taking the time to pamper your skin during these steamy months – always use sunscreen for protection and make sure you give your face some summer loving by using a face mask at least once a week to rejuvenate and re-moisturize your sun kissed epidermis.
BRIGHTENING STRAWBERRY LEMON MASK
This yummy face recipe is so tempting you might just start licking the bowl after you apply it to your face! Its full of antibiotic properties due to the honey and yogurt! Strawberries contain salicylic acid (which is great for acne-prone skin), while the lemon juice removes old, dead skin cells and helps to tighten pores.
1/4 cup mashed strawberries
2 tbsp of lemon juice
1 table spoon of greek yogurt
1 tbsp on honey
Mash all of the ingredients together, but do not puree in a blender: you want this to be spreadable, not a liquid. Apply evenly all over your face and let sit 8-10 minutes. Wipe off with a warm, damp facecloth and then rinse with cool water. Pat dry.

Vinegar acts as a natural makeup remover, while pumpkin contains enzymes that break down the toxins in your pores. Rosewater helps to maintain your skin’s pH balance.
The antioxidant properties of rose water help to strengthen skin cells along with regenerating skin tissues
Mix all of the ingredients together in a small bowl. Apply to your face and leave on for 15 to 20 minutes. Rinse off with warm water before cleansing your face.
ANTI-ACNE LEMON HONEY TEA MASK
