It’s no secret that Greek yogurt is nourishing to the body, but it’s also nourishing to the skin. Alexandra Whitcombe, founder and CEO of Vendôme Paris Beauté, a new beauty brand launching later this year, is a fan of using it in a DIY facial mask. Thanks to its nutrient-rich ingredients, such as calcium, B vitamins, lactic acid, and zinc, it can help reduce inflammation, fight free radicals, and hydrate skin. “Greek yogurt is better than traditional American yogurt, because it is more in its raw form and all of the amazing natural properties that it holds are not processed out of it,” says Whitcombe. Here, she shares her go-to yogurt mask, which incorporates both honey and marigold blossoms for a natural anti-aging treatment.
3 tbsps of room-temperature Greek yogurt
3 tbsps of raw honey
3 large marigold blossoms
1. Grind the marigold blossoms into a paste using a mortar and pestle.
2. Mix Greek yogurt, raw honey, and marigold paste together.
3. Gently steam face.
4. Apply the mask and let set for 15 minutes.
5. Rinse it off with tepid water.
