Homemade Face Mask and Scrub Recipes

joanna vargas at-home beauty tips!

You might not be able to get in to see facialist Joanna Vargas (and not just because her day is booked solid with bold-faced names like Rachel Weisz, Cornelia Guest, and Gucci Westman — you might not be in NYC). The next best thing? Her new line of skin care products and at-home recipes for gorgeous, dewy skin.

Moisturizing Face Scrub
Blend 6 teaspoons grape seed oil, 2 drops rose oil, 1 teaspoon warmed honey, and 5 teaspoons ground almonds to form a paste.

Clarifying Face Scrub
Mix together ½ cup plain yogurt, ½ cup cornmeal, and ¼ cup grapefruit juice. Refrigerate to thicken.

Hydrating Mask
Mash half a ripe avocado; add ½ cup plain yogurt and ¼ cup honey. Dab on lightly (with a sea sponge).

Calming Mask
Combine 3 tablespoons aloe vera juice, 1 tablespoon aloe vera gel, and 2 drops rose oil. Apply with a cotton ball all over face or area of concern.

Joanna Vargas’s skin care collection is available online at
