Watermelon Honey Face Mask Recipe
Makes 1/2 cup, enough for approximately 12 masks
¼ cup cubed watermelon
¼ cup plain Greek yogurt
2 tsp honey
1. Add the watermelon, yogurt, and honey to a blender and blend until smooth.
2. Transfer to a jar and use immediately or seal tightly and store in the refrigerator.
3. To use immediately, apply a thin layer, about 2 teaspoons of the mask evenly to clean skin using a brush, or your fingers. Leave on for 20 minutes. Remove with a damp washcloth.
4. Refrigerate the remaining mask mixture for up to 1 week, or divide into 2-teaspoon portions and freeze for up to one month. If the mask separates slightly, stir to combine before using.
