Yogurt Strawberry & Parsley Exfoliating Mask
The fresh, sweet combination of yogurt, strawberry and parsley can be used to make a light exfoliating facial mask- your only struggle will be whether to put this on your face or eat it as a snack!
Parsley is a great herbal astringent for those with minor skin blemishes or skin irritation. Anita’s Yogurt is raw and contains active cultures. One of these is naturally occurring lactic acid which dissolves dead skin build up, leaving behind soft, evenly toned skin. Strawberry also contains a gentle exfoliating acid and is a mild astringent. This mask is great for those with normal to oily or combination skin.
1 tablespoon of Anita’s Yogurt
4 small to medium organic or wild strawberries, mashed to a pulp
¼ cup parsley, minced
Mix to combine. You might combine everything in a food processor or manually mash the strawberries with a fork and mince the parsley with a sharp knife. Apply all over face and gently massage for 1 minute. Relax with the mask on your face for an additional 3 minutes before rinsing with cool water. It’s best to use this mixture immediately after making, it does not keep well.
