DIY FACE MASK

By celebrity facialist and founder of Joanna Vargas Salon and Skincare Collection

Vargas says, “Yogurt is anti-inflammatory, and I recommend avocado for every skin type because it has lots of B vitamins and fatty acids to keep the skin hydrated." Honey also hydrates and is antibacterial to “really transform the skin,” she notes.

INGREDIENTS:

1⁄2 cup yogurt 

1⁄2 avocado

1⁄4 cup honey

DIRECTIONS:

Mix ingredients, leave on skin 20 minutes; rinse.
