Yaaaay it’s Friday finally. If only you know for how long I’ve had shopping and ‘owambe’ on my mind, lol.
Anyway, how have you been? Hope you’ve been putting your time to good use. As for me, I’ve spent the past weeks trying out a home-made facial scrub with my sister and friend. Though they have both been too lazy to keep up with it, I’ll say it’s been working wonders on my face, considering how often I have a break-out.
Recall that I put up a post on the many benefits of honey. Well, here is another way to make use of honey for your face.
What You Need:
Its anti-bacterial properties work great for acne treatment and prevention. It contains anti-oxidants which slow down aging. It also moisturizes and soothes the skin, thus creating a glow.
It absorbs oils and removes impurities while gently exfoliating your skin without being too harsh. It relieves irritated, red and dry skin and is also overflowing with anti-oxidants, so it helps promote a healthier, glowing complexion.
How To Make It:
Get a pack of oats (I use Good Morning Oats) and blend dry with your electric blender. Store in a clean, dry air-tight jar.
*Put a tablespoonful of the blended oats into a clean mixing bowl.
Add a tablespoonful of pure honey to the blended oats.
Stir the mixture till it looks like a gooey, yucky substance.
Wash your face, ensuring that is squeaky clean. Apply the mixture to your face and massage into your skin in soft, circular motions. Leave it on for about 20minutes or more. You could even go about your morning routine while you have it on.
Rinse off with clean water.
This home-made scrub leaves your face feeling fresh and soft. It should be applied twice or thrice a week if your acne is really bad, and then can be done once a week as it gradually reduces.
Try this out and let me know if it works for you.
Do have yourself a fab weekend. Until later, ciao :*
