We’re in the heat of summer, and for many people, excess oil on the
face can be an annoying problem this time of year. If this is a
problem for you, pamper your face this week by applying a clay based
mask to absorb excess oil so that you can avoid excessive shine and
your makeup will have a little extra staying power. Milk of Magnesia
is a wonderful and inexpensive mask for those with oily skin.
If you have dry skin, you may want to first gently exfoliate dry skin
by mixing a little baking soda with your cleanser, rinsing, and then
following with a moisturizing mask. You can use a commercial mask or
mix honey and egg yolk for a moisturizing mask. Olive oil will also
work. After cleansing away the mask, apply moisturizer to the skin
while the skin is still damp.
A little extra time pampering our faces will give us another reason to
smile all day long!
Take time for you; you’re so worth it!
