My sister greta somewhat reluctantly agreed to participate in this beauty experiment, but because she is usually my go-to guinea pig, i am happy to report that she soon gave in to my demands (there may or may not have also been a bribe involving fro-yo). 
so Here I am applying the puréed mixture to her face in the photo above. We decided to take advantage of the beautiful weather and did the treatment outside in our backyard. The sun helped the skin absorb the blend quickly and the mask only had to set for ten minutes. Not only did the fruit, yogurt, and honey mixture brighten her skin, but Greta also noted that it cured her headache!

Greta happily washing the mask off her face.               Skin bright, smile bright! 

Happy summer!
