honey and yogurt in cups with flower decorations and DIY Capital lettersHi Peaches!! It’s official, winter has clearly hit South Africa. Here’s to snuggles in front of the fire, Glühwein, reading your fave book under the covers or just spending the entire weekend in (extremely) warm PJ’s being completely idle!

But with the sweet comes the sour – and by sour I’m referring to dry, and (heaven forbid) flaky skin, hence I thought I’d share one of my most-liked DIY beauty masks for supple, smooth skin, in addition to being ridiculously inexpensive, it’s easy to concoct, au natural and you’re likely to have these items in your home already!


4 TBSP of Plain Yogurt
1 TBSP of Honey

Mix the ingredients together in a container, thereafter, place it in the refrigerator for about 10 minutes (if you have time at your disposal) – I usually cleanse my face well and ensure that I remove all traces of make-up during this waiting period.

Using your (clean) fingertips gently apply this to your face and let sit for approximately 15 minutes (enough time to do a quick manicure!). Et Voila! You’re ready to rinse and enjoy the feeling of pampered skin!

There’s a multitude of products that you can enlist for homemade skin masks. What’s superb about this mask in particular is that the lactic acid in the yogurt exfoliates the skin, whilst honey is known for its anti-inflammatory and antibacterial compounds which help to decrease the appearances of scars and increase healing and tissue regeneration.
