Skin lightening face mask
3 tbsp whey(thin liquid on the top of homemade yogurt)
1tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 small piece(about 1tbsp) of ripe avocado
Blend all the above ingredients in stone mortar to a thick paste. Apply the mixture to your skin. Leave it on for 30 minutes to one hour and rinse off with cold water. Do not apply soap on the day you use mask. Nutrients from the mask stays on the skin even after you rinse it off. They takes few hours to get absorbed. If you apply soap which has harsh chemical it wipes off all the good nutrients. Do this twice a week for 2 months and see change in your skin tone. I am sure you will get many compliments from your spouse. Do this as evening mask.
If you don’t have pecans, you can substitute with almonds or walnuts. Make sure you soak almonds overnight and drain before you grind them. No need to soak pecans or walnuts.
Why stone mortar, why not blender?
Stone mortar’s pulverizing action extracts the oil and juice out from nuts and veggies. Blender has cutting action.
