Apple Yogurt Natural Facial Mask (recipe)

Do you like to eat green apple?
Yes? Not? 
Err... I am not. >.< Because of its sour taste.  
嗯..... 我不喜欢。 >.< 我不喜欢它酸酸的滋味。

I have 5pcs of green apple in my fridge and of course I did not buy it. >.<
Although I don't like to eat green apples, but, I think maybe my skin will like it! haha~
So, I decide to feed my skin this delicious and fresh green apple, ha-ha-ha-ha.... ^_^
我的雪柜里面有5个青苹果,当然那不是我买回来的。 >.<
虽然我不喜欢吃青苹果,但是,我想啊~也许我的皮肤会喜欢! 哈哈~
所以,我决定要喂我的皮肤吃这个可口又新鲜的青苹果,哈哈哈哈~~~ ^_^

Apple is a good source of vitamins, such like vitamin A, vitamin C, and some small amount of minerals. Vitamin C is well known as a powerful natural antioxidant, it not only help our skin against free radicals, but also protect our skin from the damaging effects of the sun. In addition to these, antioxidants can encourage cell growth and this could be helpful in an anti-aging regimen.
苹果是很多重要维生素的来源,比如维他命A, 维他命C和其他少量的矿物质。众所周知维他命C是非常有效的天然抗氧化剂,它不但可以帮助我们的皮肤抵抗自由基,还可以保护我们的皮肤避免晒伤。除了以上这些,抗氧化剂也可以促进细胞生长,这也有帮助抗老化的功效。

Yogurt is nutritionally rich in protein, calcium, riboflavin, live culture along with lactic acid, zinc, vitamin B6 and vitamin B12. It helps in hydrating our skin because of the lactic acid content, and also gently exfoliates the top layers of the epidermis, which can clear up blemishes and discolorations. The rich amount of zinc in yogurt could help for some effects that sunburn leaves behind, and also helps in reducing and preventing acne and pimple problems. 
营养丰富的酸奶里含有很高的蛋白质,钙质,核黄素,乳酸活性益菌,锌,维他命B6和维他命B12. 它含有的乳酸可以帮助皮肤保湿,也同时可以非常温和的除去表皮角质,这能让我们的皮肤减少瑕疵和色斑。它所含的丰富锌还能帮助舒缓晒伤之后的一些症状,同时可以有效地减少和预防粉刺和痘痘问题。

Honey contains amino acids, sugar, gluconic acid, bee pollen and also antioxidants. Honey can be used as a mild antiseptic. The bee pollen could help promote new tissue growth. These gluconic acid is very safe to use on our skin, they are great exfoliant too, also help to balance out the oily skin. Amino acids and sugar content in honey help us to moisturize our skin and it is safe to use daily. It can also improve our skin's blood circulation which makes your skin look young and beautiful.

Here we start to make our Apple Yogurt Natural Facial Mask.
I suggest to use this mask during your shower time, no need to worry it will mess up your shirt or place, and you can finish all the mask paste. After applying on face, you can use it on neck, shoulder, even hand and breast! :)
我个人建议在洗澡的时候使用这个面膜,就不需要担心面膜会掉落或者弄脏你的衣服和地方,也可以完全的用完全部的面膜泥。涂抹完脸部之后,你还可以涂在颈项,肩膀,甚至手部和胸部! :)

1. One green apple.
2. 2 tablespoons of plain yogurt.
3. 1 tablespoon of honey (preferable raw).
1. 一颗青苹果。
2. 2 大匙的原味酸奶。
3. 1 大匙的蜂蜜(最好是野生)

1. Wash the green apple.
2. Diced the apple.
3. Put all the diced apple in a food processor.
4. Add in 2 tablespoons of plain yogurt, blend it.
    (That is not really easy to blend because too dry, try to shake the food processor then blend again, repeat doing this step until the diced apple completely blended.)
5. Add in 1 tablespoon of honey, blend well.
6. You will have a thick paste.
1. 清洗青苹果。
2. 把苹果切丁。
3. 把苹果丁全部放进去食物搅拌机里。
4. 加入2大匙的原味酸奶,开动机器搅拌。
   ( 因为没有加水的关系,其实不是很容易就能拌打均匀,尝试把搅拌杯举起来摇晃然后再开动搅拌,重复这个动作,直到搅拌被里面的苹果丁和酸奶被绞碎。)
5. 加入1大匙的蜂蜜,继续搅拌,直到苹果完全被绞碎。
6. 图6就是完成了的面膜泥。

Wash your face and body. (If you will use this mask at your shower time)
Wipe with a clean towel, apply the mask paste on your face and use your fingertips to massage your face.
Leave the mask paste stay on your face, continue to apply the mask on your neck and other body parts.
Let it stay for around 15-20minutes, rinse with water.
Wipe your face and body, apply your toner and moisturizer.
让面膜泥逗留大约 15-20 分钟,用清水洗净。

Wish you a nice day and always stay young and radiant !
祝福你拥有美好的一天 和 青春常驻 容光焕发 !
