Make your own Aging Skin Fighter! This mask works wonderfully to decrease age lines and spots, tighten and moisturize your skin. I love using this!
Sometimes my daughters get together with me and we have a Home Spa day and pamper ourselves with home pedicures, manicures and facials. It’s expensive and great fun.Combine yogurt, honey and lemon juice. Prick open the vitamin E capsules and squeeze contents into mix, stir.Apply to skin for for 15 minutes.
For Each Mask you’ll need:2 teaspoons plain yogurt
1/2 teaspoon honey
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
3 capsules vitamin E (equivalent of 300 units)
Rinse off and pat dry. For the best results, use daily. You can mix it up ahead of time in larger batches and store it in a container in the fridge.

Just wondering…after the 15 minutes, do we wipe it off or rinse it off? Moisturize afterwards?

Homemade Greek Yogurt is a snap to make all you need is a crockpot, 1 gallon of milk, 1 cup of yogurt for cultures, pectin or plain gelatin , cheesecloth to strain. Heat milk in crockpot on low for 2 hours. Turn off mix in cup of yogurt and gelatin put in a warm area and wrap with a towel or cover with a heat insulating bag overnight or about 8 hours.
Strain with cheesecloth to desired consistency. Add fruit enjoy
- February 7, 2014 at 5:39 pm #450264I just started washing my face with, of all things, oil (vitamin E). I am going to try this recipe as a masque before bed! Thanks for posting!
I also make yogurt at home… Heat your milk to 185degrees and keep it at that temp for 5 minutes. then let it cool to 120 to 115 degrees.
Mix in 1 cup of your starter yogurt and 1/2 cup of powdered milk. I place mine in mason jars with the cap on. wrap each jar in a tea towel and place in the oven.Put the oven light on and leave overnight up to 12 hours. the longer it stays in the oven the thicker it will be. I don’t strain mine.

please give us the recipe for homemade yogurt 🙂

I think of my yogurt as ‘scientific method’ as opposed to a recipe 🙂I use 6 cups of milk (2%) plus 1/2 cup of powdered milk.
Heat to 180 – 185 degrees
Let the milk cool to 115 – 120 degrees.
Stir in 1 cup of greek yogurt (really important to have ‘live cultures’)
I place the mixture into 3 mason jars, cap them and wrap individually in a tea towel. I heat my oven to the lowest setting (mine is 200 degrees) and shut it off. Wait 5 minutes…
then put the jars in the oven with the light on. Leave them for 8 to 12 hours. Then put them in the fridge for a few hours to chill.The longer you leave the yogurt in the oven, the more tart it will be.
I use the powdered milk to make the yogurt thick like sour cream. I use it as a substitute to sour cream.
Mix-in Ideas for single servings:Go crazy with making great flavors – but I only do it with single servings.
Fruit – of course
Cocoa powder and powdered sugar (excellent chocolate flavor)

How often are you supposed to use it?
- March 11, 2014 at 7:24 am #452239Vitamin E oil is good stuff. Both of my kids were over 10 pounds and I bought the highest E concentrate I could find and rub it on daily – not a single stretch Mark!
