A sprinkling of freckles across the nose and cheekbones is a beauty asset. However, if your face is liberally covered with freckles, you might want to fade them to minimize their appearance. Fortunately, there is a safe, natural method for accomplishing this goal.
Things You'll Need
- Small bowl
- Fork or small whisk
- 1/4 cup plain yogurt with active cultures
- 1 tbsp. fresh-squeezed lemon juice
- Night cream or moisturizing sunblock
Stir the yogurt and lemon juice together in a small bowl until thoroughly combined.
Apply the mixture to your face, being sure to avoid the skin surrounding your eyes. Lie down and relax for 15 to 20 minutes, using a towel under your head to protect the pillow or upholstery.
Wrap the towel around your shoulders when you rise, to protect your clothing. Using a wet washcloth and tepid water, remove the yogurt mask from your face. Rinse several times. Apply night cream or a moisturizing sunblock as needed.
Apply this gentle mask three or four days a week and look for a gradual change in the appearance of your freckles and glow of your skin.
