Preparing your own facial treatment is a fun way to pamper yourself while rallying your skin. Whether you’re craving relaxation or natural reinforcements for an emergency breakout, the stars of this simple face mask, strawberries and oatmeal, will do the trick. Salicylic acid in the strawberries (also found in things like aspirin) rids the skin of dead cells, so it can absorb moisture more effectively. The oatmeal gently exfoliates, meaning it sloughs off anything on the surface clogging pores and causing breakouts. This universal formula works wonders for all skin types.
6 sliced strawberries
1 cup oats
1 6 ounce container of vanilla yogurt
- Dump the strawberries and yogurt into a blender and blend until smooth.
- Pour the strawberry mixture into a bowl and stir in oats. If the mask is too runny, add more oats to thicken. If the mixture starts to solidify, thin using a little water.
- Apply the mask after washing your face and removing make-up.
- For an extra treat, slice up some cucumbers and place on your eyes. Play your favorite tunes or enjoy the silence.
Now, sit back and relax! Rinse completely off whenever you’re ready to reenter reality.
