Step 2

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.

Step 3

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.
