DIY: 2 Ingredient Face Mask

I think it is the general consensus that most wives tales are well...tales. However, once in a while they got it right. One of the easiest and most effective methods for attaining blemish-free, softer skin is a Lemon and Yogurt face mask. The best part about it? It's super cheap, super easy, and great for your skin. What's not to like about it? 

What you will need:
1 Tablespoon
1 Lemon (any breed is fine)
Plain Yogurt
Lemon Juicer (optional)

Start by adding roughly 5-6 tablespoons of plain yogurt to the bowl

 Juice one whole lemon. (You can add more or less depending on the sensitivity of your skin)

 Mix the lemon juice and yogurt, making sure to mix in all clumps. The consistency should be a thicker liquid (if it's too watery just add a little more yogurt to balance it out)

Pour your mixture into the container and voila! Super simple, and foolproof. All you have to do is apply it on your face and then rinse it off after a few minutes! This will last you 3-4 days(refrigerated) and should be applied once or twice a day.

modern vampires of the city

 Let it be accepted, Ezra Koenig is a genius. Vampire Weekend's latest album is a miraculous mosaic of songs that is utterly brilliant. If y'all don't know who Ezra or VW are (which, frankly, should be illegal given how amazing they are) I highly suggest that you go and purchase all of their albums right this instant. Right. This. Instant.
