Today is part two of my DIY home spa series. As much as I wish summer sun gave me a gorgeous glow and nothing else, that's just not the case. I tend to tan unevenly, especially on my face. While some leave the pool looking sun kissed, I end up with blotchy dark spots that usually have to be spackled with concealer.
I found the recipe here, and this mask made promises to help reduce uneven skin tone and brighten your complexion. Since it called for ingredients that I already had in my fridge, I gave it a try. I'm not gonna' lie; it was a runny mess. Do not apply while standing on Persian carpets, or for that matter, even a rug from Target. I wanted to take a funny shot with it on my face, but it dripped so much that I stayed in the bathroom for the 15 minutes. I think next time (yes, I will be using this again) I'll just apply it before a shower.
One plus was that this mask didn't tingle like the basking soda mask I posted several months ago, but it also didn't have the immediate results. I know yogurt and lemon are natural whitening agents that need more than one application to work, as do most skin care products whether natural or synthetic. My plan is to do this mask every other day for a week and see what happens.
