Citrus is known for it’s astringent, antiseptic and detoxifying effects on the skin. Lemon reduces hyperpigmentation and also exfoliates. Adding a drop of ylang-ylang gives citrus added beneficial effects. Why not try this homemade mask recipe I found over at Organic Authority
1 teaspoon lemon juice (You may substitute grapefruit, orange or another citrus juice, but don’t mix them.)
2 teaspoons honey
6 ounces plain yogurt
1 drop ylang-ylang essential oil (optional)
1/4 cup oatmeal or crushed almonds (optional)
1. Blend ingredients.
2. Apply to face.
3. Allow to dry.
4. Rinse with warm water.
