Fall Market Mask How-To:
1. Pick the seeds out of a pomegranate.
2. Using a mortar and pestle or a blender, pulverize the pomegranate seeds to make ¼ cup.
3. In a bowl, mix the pomegranate with ½ teaspoon honey and 1 tablespoon yogurt. Using your fingers or a clean makeup brush, apply the mixture to your face. Allow to sit for 15 minutes. With a massaging motion, rinse with warm water. Pat dry.
