DIY Skin Brightener and Softener
Just a very short post today. I recently read an article with various DIY ideas from models and one was a mix up of lemon juice, coconut yogurt and honey to soften and brighten the skin. It appealed to me so I tried it and ... it's AWESOME!!! Grab a couple teaspoons of plain coconut yogurt, squeeze about half a lemon into it and add a spoonful of honey. Mix it up and paste it over your face, neck, chest. It's goopy and, the more lemon you use, the more it may sting slightly (don't put it near your eyes). Leave it on about 20-25 minutes and take it off very gently with cool water and a washcloth. This is a very cool way of both brightening and moisturizing and I feel like I got some exfoliation benefits from the lemon as well. Play with the ratios until you get it right for your skin (more yogurt = more calming/soothing; more honey = more moisturizing; and more lemon = more brightening). Enjoy!
