Unleash the anti-aging power of lemons with this homemade facial cleanser. The acid from the lemons will rid your skin of outbreak-causing bad bacteria while the healthy probiotics from the yogurt will infuse your skin with good bacteria.

  • 1 tbsp natural yogurt
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 2 drops essential lemon oil
Mix all ingredients together. Soak a cotton wool pad in the mixture and remove makeup. Repeat with fresh cotton wool pads until make up is removed.
Note: This mixture will not keep, so it should be used immediately.
Apples contain malic acid, which can help slough off dead skin cells. Freeze apple juice in an ice-cube tray, then grab a cube in the morning and gently rub it over your face, including the eye area. You’ll exfoliate dead skin cells while the chill will help to reduce any swelling around your eyes.
