The DIY Glow-Getting Face Mask

Give dull, tired skin a boost of goodness straight from your kitchen – your new beauty routine for glowing skin takes just 15 minutes once a week
By Adriana Donnola

Don’t let winter time dull your skin. With some of the best and most effective ingredients in beauty coming straight from your kitchen, it’s pretty easy to whip up a spa-worthy mask at home. Not only will it save you money – especially if you use Imperfect Picks* from HFM – but it absolutely drives results using only natural ingredients.

It’s as easy as 1-2-3

This simple exfoliating mask uses just three ingredients to sloth-off dead skin cells, making way for brighter, healthier-looking skin. All you need are a few strawberries, a little plain yoghurt and raw honey.  

High in salicylic acid, strawberries are natural-born acne fighters; plain yoghurt is both calming and hydrating with skin-softening AHAs; and honey is both antibacterial and a humectant, meaning it naturally draws moisture into your skin. This mask is suitable for all faces  – from teenage to mature – and is best applied once a week.

Step 1

Mash 2-3 strawberries in a small bowl.

Step 2

Add 1 Tbsp of natural, plain yoghurt.

Step 3

Add 1 Tbsp raw honey. Mix the ingredients, slather on and wait for 15 minutes. Rinse with warm water only. Use a washcloth for easier removal and apply moisturiser. 

Self-care Sunday, perhaps? 

While it’s on, take time out to either lie back, paint your nails or do nothing! Or listen to a meditation app: the award-winning CALM has a range of breathing techniques to help you relax, and a kids’ section with meditations for ages 3-17.

Good enough to eat

Oh, and don’t throw out the leftovers. As an added bonus this mask makes a tasty, skin-boosting snack! Mix in walnuts and almonds (rich in good fats) and oats (high in manganese that helps form skin-plumping collagen) and you’ll be glowing from the inside out.

*Imperfect Picks at HFM are less expensive due to their appearance but their inner beauty still shines brightly.
Note: While this recipe is all natural, there is always the chance of allergies or sensitivities. Make sure you spot-test on the inside of your arm before applying to your face.
