How To Brighten Skin

Clear, bright, glowing skin sounds like a fairytale, huh?

I came up with this facial mask to help clear up scars, dark spots and to brighten my skin.  I felt desperate because my skin was looking pretty rough!  I didn’t know if it was the weather getting colder or what the heck was going on, but it looked like I hadn’t slept or moisturized my skin in ten years!

I didn’t want to do anything harsh or irritating either, that would have just made things worse!   This mask did the trick for me, though!  It brightened my skin right up and made me feel so much better!  It’s perfect because it’s gentle on your skin and it does help brighten your skin and can eventually fade scars (who doesn’t want that?)!  I recommend doing it 3 times a week for the best results!

All you need:

1 Tbsp non sweetened greek yogurt .  Yogurt contains lactic acid, an alpha hydroxy acid, that dissolves dead skin cells.  This gentle exfoliation not only helps to create a natural glow and prevent breakouts, but works to diminish the appearance of lines and wrinkles.


Yogurt and honey



1 Tbsp organic honey.  Honey’s benefits for skin care work in a few different ways. The chemical makeup of honey gives the substance properties that can speed healing and prevent infection. The smooth, thick texture also keeps moisture close to the skin, which can help your complexion become supple and glowing.

1 Tsp fresh squeezed lemon juice.  Lemon juice is a natural antiseptic and, when used in a facial mask, it can help clear oil and dirt as well as bacteria which can cause breakouts.

Mix up the ingredients and apply all over your face (even the under eyes, but be careful) and leave it on for 30 minutes.  Rinse with cold water and pat dry.  I put on face cream afterwards just to really pamper my skin.  I even read something the other day where this lady used extra virgin olive oil as a moisturizer!  I’m thinking about giving it a try?


I hope this helps!
