When it comes to DIY beauty, my grandmother passed down these words of wisdom:

“What’s good for the inside of you is good for the outside of you, too.”

So while I have yet to find a kale facial (don’t worry; I’ll keep you posted), there’s another cheap and easy fix that uses everyone’s favorite protein-packed, probiotic snack: Greek yogurt.

Not only does the lactic acid help smooth fine lines and even out skin tone, but yogurt’s enzymes can also help remove dead cells and exfoliate your skin.

Add a spoonful of honey to help skin retain moisture, and you’ve got a simple at-home masque that stacks up against even the spendiest spa versions.

Honey-Yogurt Facial 

Ingredients: 

  • 3 Tbsp plain, full-fat Greek yogurt
  • 1 Tbsp honey

Directions:

  1. Mix ingredients together in a small bowl
  2. Apply to face evenly in a thick layer
  3. Leave on for 15 minutes
  4. Rinse off with warm water
