Beauty DIY: Cranberry Masque for Glowing Skin

So Thanksgiving is this week, and that can cause a lot of stress, whether you're cooking the big meal, hosting the dinner, or dealing with family. That stress can definitely show on your skin. Today I've got a quick masque that you can use before (and after) the guests arrive. This masque moisturizes and gives you glowing skin. I bet you already have the ingredients on hand, so carve out 15 minutes, get ready to relax, and let's make this masque!

N e e d:
  • 1/2 c washed, whole cranberries (I used organic)
  • 1 tbsp plain yogurt
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • blender, small bowl, small spatula

D o:
  • Blend the cranberries, yogurt, and honey into a blender. It should blended to a pulp, just like in the first pic. It doesn't look appealing, but it works!
  • Pour into a small bowl. Apply to face and leave for 10 minutes. Wash away masque.
  • Keeps in fridge up to a week. 
T r y:
  • The cranberries give you that glowing skin, the honey moisturizes, and the yogurt moisturizes, helps prevent breakouts, and brightens skin.
  • If your skin is really oily, switch out the yogurt for clay. You can buy powdered clay from a health food store, or Queen Helen Mud Masque Pack. If using powdered, add 1/2 tbp. of filtered water or 100% pure cranberry juice.
  • Be sure to use yogurt that is Greek or not fat-free.
  • Try using a small hair highlighting brush, from the beauty supply store, to apply the masque.
  • This masque is edible, a little tart, but edible!
Here's another recipe to try with cranberries:
