Do It Yourself Facial – Right At Home!
Winters that are cold, full of smog/pollution, and maybe a tad bit dreary.
Summers can clog our skin with sunscreens, repellents and sweat.
This homemade facial is a GREAT solution for any time of the year and the ingredients are readily available; making it easy and quick to put together.
Try this once a week or so before bed. That way, after rinsing it off, it can continue to replenish the moisture that vanishes due to stress, the environment, make up – you know…..life…..
Here’s some information about the ingredients in this facial:
Did you know that OATMEAL is amazing for many reasons?
HONEY is excellent for your skin because:
It helps with acne to treat it and prevent it because it is a natural antibacterial.
OLIVE OIL is reported to make your skin softer and smoother and is a natural moisturizer. A quality product (such as my links claim) will not leave a residue on your skin to clog pores.
Now, here is my recipe for this amazing DIY Homemade Facial
(click on the blue titles to see products)
1 Tbl. Honey
1 Tbl. Olive oil
1 Tbl. Milk (use water if you have allergies to milk or dairy products)
2 Tbl. Oatmeal, ground – you can use quick or regular oats, it doesn’t seem to matter the type
In a small bowl combine the honey, olive oil and milk.
Mix together well.
Pulverize the oatmeal to a powder in a blender.
Till it looks like this:
In your small bowl, add to the liquid mixture, 2 Tbl, of the ground oatmeal and combine.Allow the mixture to sit for 5-10 minutes so the oatmeal can soften in the liquid combination.
Apply mixture generously to the face and neck.
Rub gently in circular motions to massage; making sure to do all of your face and neck.
I like to also put a bit on my lips to exfoliate them.
Now rinse your skin really well with warm water. The water needs to be warm enough to dissolve the oil and honey, but not so warm it burns your skin. Pat dry and use your normal skin routine, or allow to sit and rejuvenate your skin.
This is a terrific way to moisturize and soften your skin on a budget in all seasons.
