Hello, blogosphere!
This is my first official post as The Pampered Prep, and I can't wait to share this great face mask with you! It is super easy, and if you can't find all these ingredients at home, any grocery store will have them. The lemon juice and egg white in this mask helps dry out any excess oils in your skin, while the yogurt and honey help to nourish and moisturize your face. This facial is really effective, and very good for people with oily skin, and if you have sensitive skin, like me, then cut back the lemon juice to about 2 1/2 or 3 tablespoons. I'd love to hear your reactions to this mask! If your skin is feeling dull, I even added 3 uncoated plain aspirin diluted in a tablespoon of water. This facial can be used around 1 to 2 times a week. I'd love to hear your reactions to this mask!

Step 1:


In a small bowl, I combined all the ingredients in order:
4 tsp lemon juice (or three for sensitive skin!)
3 tsp plain yogurt (I used Fage)
4 TBS honey
1 egg white

Step 2:

Using a fork, I stirred and whisked the mixture until it was well blended. After washing my face, (I recommend using Cetaphil or another gentle cleanser,) I spread the mask over my face using my fingers. At first I was skeptical of rubbing raw egg on my face, but my mind flashed back to the cookie dough this morning... so I just went ahead! 

Step 3:
Kick back! It only takes 15 minutes for this mask to work its magic, so start your favorite show or read a magazine, or if you're in the mood, take a quick nap! After the timer beeped, I rinsed my face off with warm water. Don't use face wash! Using warm water will help open up your pores, so keep your hands off your face for a while to prevent any gross dirt and grime from clogging them back up. Enjoy your soft, clean skin!

This is what your mask should look like when it's all mixed up. If it doesn't don't worry. Roll with it!
