Grapefruit & Oatmeal Detox Face Mask


I don’t know about you but winter is a killer on my skin. All of those hot toddies, cold temps and heat blasting into my cube all day are taking their toll. I’ve been using and loving NYC-based celebrity facialist Joanna Vargas‘ exfoliating mask to put some pep back into my complexion (full review forthcoming!) so jumped when she shared her three-ingredient recipe for a skin detox using all things I have in my pantry. The grapefruit helps purge toxins, oatmeal calms inflammation after a night of imbibing while also helping to prevent breakouts, and the milk exfoliates using lactic acid while also soothing skin. Enjoy!
