Cleansing Greek Yogurt and Olive Oil Mask for Acne

The ingredients:

  • 1 Tbsp plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 Tsp olive oil
  • 1/2 Tsp lemon oil

“Believe it or not, I love to cleanse with oil,” Argenti says. For this facial, she combines plain Greek yogurt with olive oil and lemon oil (not to be confused with lemon juice; lemon oil is an essential oil that can be found at health food stores). The mixture should be a little bit runny but not easily poured out. Massage it over skin, then immediately wipe it off with a washcloth soaked in tepid water. This can be done daily. “You want to use good-quality oil and you’ll be surprised at how clean your skin will feel,” Argenti says. “You don’t need a harsher product, even for skin with acne. Just be careful around the eye area … [the mixture] tends to be very sticky.”
