Zest for Life Grapefruit Mask

Grapefruit Facial Mask

A clarifying, revitalizing grapefruit mask.

This delightfully refreshing and clarifying facial mask came our way from nationally recognized bridal makeup artist and beauty maven Miriam Behar. She says it works for most skin types and preps the skin for a smooth makeup application or for an anytime natural glow.

Here’s what you need:

  • 1 whole grapefruit
  • 3/4 cup whole milk yogurt

Here’s what you do:

Using a zester, grate the rind of the grapefruit into a bowl and mix in the yogurt. Apply to your face with clean fingers or a soft facial mask brush, taking care to avoid the eyes. Leave the mask on for 10 minutes and then rinse, tone and apply moisturizer. For a natural and revitalizing toner, simply saturate a cotton ball with fresh grapefruit juice and swab the face and neck. Finally, avoid sun exposure directly after using this mask or liberally slather on the sunscreen. Natural citrus oils can make your skin temporarily sensitive to the sun.

    Can you use grapefruit powder for your face mask instead of zest?

    I’m not familiar with grapefruit powder. The essential oils in the rind are powerfully healing. Not sure what the powder is made of.
