My experience with the honey yogurt face mask
First, I used a gentle face wash to cleanse my skin thoroughly.
Unlike my usual routine, I skipped the scrubbing this time.
Afterward, I gently patted my face dry with a soft towel.
Next, I generously applied the Greek yogurt honey mask to my face and neck using my fingertips.
I then allowed the mask to work its magic while I wrote this post, feeling the soothing sensation on my skin.
After several minutes, I rinsed off the mask, removing any residue from my neck.
Once done, I gently patted my face dry and applied a face cream.
My face and neck skin look smoother and more moisturized.
But I think next time, I’ll use my trusted coffee honey face scrub before using the Greek yogurt and honey face mask.
I prefer to scrub first, then use a mask.
That way, my pores are open to soaking up the face mask’s benefits.
Which makes my skin even brighter.
