Yogurt--Breakfast and Beauty ?
Topic: Education and Values

Now that Winter is settling in ( I know technically it's still Autumn but it was 3 degrees this morning at the Farm!)--everyone is inside, we are cold-stressed, our resistance is lowered and exposure to illness heightened. Don't forget to include yogurt in your diet.

Here's my favorite breakfast that takes no time to create. Plain yogurt, mixed nuts, a drizzle of honey.

 


 

 Now... what about this yogurt recipe?

 

Looks edible,doesn't it? Well, it's another yogurt recipe but this one is the real focus of today's blog. The weather and the holiday food and just the aging process are likely doing a number on your face, so why not try this ANTIOXIDANT-YOGURT FACE MASK ?  You probably have everything around to make this right now.

 Antioxidant- Yogurt Facial Mask


2 Tbsp. Coffee grounds, fresh, cooled

2Tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder

3 Tbsp. Plain, unsweetened yogurt (greek styled or regular)

1 Tbsp. Honey

Conbine in a mini-processor or hand mix very well.

Apply the mixture with a cotton ball, disposable makeup pad, OR your fingers to your entire face and under the chin and lower jaw, avoiding the eyes. It's a thin mixture, so slide it on but do NOT rub it into the skin since the grounds can actually scratch the facial skin. (note: avoid rubbing any masks or scrubs with particles into the face for this reason) Just apply it on the skin surfaces and let it dry. Keep it on about 20-30 minutes. Then—into the shower and let warm water rinse it off.

You will notice very smooth skin and a reduction in puffiness and wrinkles!

Refrigerate the remaining mask mixture and you can repeat a mask in the next couple of days while it's still fresh and use-able.

Obviously, do not use this recipe if you are allergic to any of the ingredients.
