SOYA MILK SUN-SPOT MASK
One of the most obvious signs of ageing, after wrinkles, is age spots – commonly referred to as sun spots or liver spots. Instead of turning to laser treatment and chemical peels, Dr Youn recommends regular use of home treatments which are altogether more gentle on the skin. Combine one tablespoon each of soya milk, honey and lemon juice, mix and apply to your face for 20 minutes, then wash off with warm water. Repeat two to three times a week. The citric acid in lemon juice is a natural skin lightener; soya milk contains enzymes that can inhibit the production of melanin in the skin, so preventing the darkening of pigmented areas (it is also full of vitamins A and E, which are both good for ageing skin), and honey has natural antibacterial properties, so it can help reduce acne; it also soothes irritated skin, moisturises dry skin and has a slight tightening effect.
