One of my favorite things about being in New York this past summer was the humidity. It drove me nuts for a few weeks but then I noticed the amazing transformation of my skin; my pores were unclogged and my blemishes vanished for the most part. Growing up in the Arizona desert I was never able to experience this type of weather.
Now that I am back in Idaho I have many cold months ahead of me. This means I have to be extra careful with my skincare routine. I have been using a DIY facial for a few weeks to get into a healthy habit of taking care of my skin. In the pictures I posted I am not wearing foundation. I am not against make-up by any means; I have made it a personal goal to use much less and to only use foundation for special occasions. The mask feels a tad itchy on my skin but it hasn’t given me rashes or irritation. Tip: NEVER fail to moisturize your skin before putting on make up and after you wash your face EVERY night
-1 teaspoon of cinnamon
-2 teaspoons of baking soda
-3 teaspoons of raw honey
* mix ingredients and apply on clean face for 10 minutes, rinse off
If you’re like me you probably use heat on your hair a little too much. I apply this hair mask once a week to gain shine in my hair and it’s so simple but makes a noticeable difference.
-1/4 cup of olive oil
* mix ingredients and apply to clean, wet hair after shampooing. Leave for 10 minutes and rinse off (I usually tie it up in the shower while I shave my legs).
I exfoliate my lips twice a week with sugar and olive oil for smoothness 🙂
