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. Always do a spot test when trying a new beauty treatment to test for allergies.
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!
