I recently had a friend message me on Facebook asking me for a masque recipe that she could use. I am usually reluctant to recommend lemon juice in a homemade masque recipe to those inexperienced folks who may get “carried away” with the lemon juice. Lemon has a PH of 2.0-2.5 which is obviously very acidic. If lemon juice is used improperly, it can cause damage to your skin’s delicate barrier.
When making a masque that includes lemon juice, it is important to use ingredients like yogurt that help to bring up the PH levels without compromising the wonderful exfoliating effects of the lemon juice. This particular masque recipe covers a lot of skin concerns, as it has ingredients that exfoliate to make the skin glow, and also ingredients that kill bacteria on the skin. The oatmeal is a great anti-wrinkle ingredient.
I know I just recently posted a wonderful hydrating and moisturizing Oatmeal Masque recipe recently. But this particular recipe is much simpler and leaves the skin with a beautiful glow and soft texture.
So here’s the recipe:
*2 Tablespoons of ground oatmeal
*2 Tablespoons of fresh lemon juice
*1 Tablespoon of plain yogurt
* 1 Tablespoon of honey
*Mix ingredients with a wooden stick or spoon until smooth. Apply to skin and leave on 8-10 minutes. Remove with a warm wash cloth. Enjoy your new beautiful soft glowing skin!
