As a lot of my close friends and family will know, I'm a big fan of all things fashion,style and beauty.My bathroom looks like it could open its own beauty store, there are so many products in there for all things skin, hair, make up removal, make up products etc and the list goes on.
But recently this weekend, I did my usual weekend face mask routine as I felt but skin was breaking out a little. So I tried this face mask that I purchased at my local supermarket, ' Quick Fix Facial anti blemish face mask'... well it didn't exactly go down how I had expected.. there I was calmly watching a movie, then in the next 5 minutes something was not right and was definitely happening to my skin that didn't feel soothing. I had to quickly rush to the bathroom basin to wash it off, as my skin felt like it was literally burning and I felt like I had a temperature.
I took some pictures of what had happened to my skin because of this face mask ( CAUTION: see below...its not pretty). On my neck you can see the comparison in skin tone. YIKES! I rang my mum and freaked out to my boyfriend as I still do at the age of 27 and I asked them the usual questions? Am I going to die? is this permanent? and am I stuck like this forever?...the usual.
I survived...So the next morning my skin was so dry and just didn't feel like my normal skin, I decided to make my own homemade face mask for the day, to not only put back some nourishment into my skin but also to do what I had originally set out to do the night before and stop my skin from breaking out. It was so simple and so cost effective, I think the entire ingredients would have cost me the same amount of money of the actual tube of the other face mask.
For Dry dehydrated skin try this soothing Avocado, Honey and Yogurt mask.
1/2 Ripe Avocado
1 tbsp Honey ( any honey will do I chose an organic honey)
1 tbsp of Plain Yogurt
Mash Avocado until paste like, add in the honey and yogurt. Mix until a nice consistency and place in the fridge until chilled. Having a chilled face mask is good for the skin and to minimize large pores.
After using this mask, my skin was so dewy and soft and I could just feel the natural oils coming back into my skin from the avocado and honey, after having the life completely sucked out of it the night before. PHEW!
