So brief disclaimer: I am not a dermatologist or an herbalist. I am someone who tries to find the simplest ways to get maximum results, naturally. I’ve been very vocal on this here blog about my skin. That time I called myself not so pretty and healed my face in a week was really the beginning of my slight obsession with natural products. Now I won’t say I get all Martha Stewart in the kitchen and make everything myself. I don’t have time or patience for that. But I do try to find products that have the least amount of chemicals.
One Friday night in, I was watching Hey Fran Hey videos and I came across one about a honey facial. That lead to me doing research on honey facial masks. So I figured, I have honey in the kitchen pantry, I have oats and I have plain greek yogurt. So I watched a few more YouTube videos and applied the paste to my face. Almost immediately after removing it, my face broke out in the craziest rash!! Why? I did not use raw honey; I used the stupid one in the bear bottle. DO NOT USE THIS ON YOUR FACE. Also, I did not like the Chobani brand of plain greek yogurt. Something about their products that smell really spoiled. Only make enough for one mask and make sure you use the yogurt up before it starts to funk up. I recently bought the Kroger brand plain greek nonfat yogurt and there was no smell.
