Written by on April 8th, 2013 One Comment

Whitening products often contain hydroquinone, a potential carcinogen. In this mask, the antibacterial properties of honey are boosted with the anti fungal and whitening properties of lemon.

You can store this mask in the fridge and use it up within one week.

Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 4 teaspoons lemon juice (freshly squeezed or bottled)
  • 3 teaspoon plain or Greek-style yogurt
  • 1 egg white

Method:

Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and whisk until the mask thickens. Apply to clean, dry face and let set for 15 minutes. Gently wash off with warm water.
