I think it’s safe to say that we are all over winter. It’s snowing (too much for my Virginia raised taste), it’s freezing always, and my skin is paying the price for this cold. I’ve have decided enough is enough. I am taking control of my skin and bringing it back to its hydrated glory.
I’ve talked to a few of our resident aestheticians and done some research in the hopes to be able to bring you a few helpful tips to cure your winter (blues) skin.
Eager to get started refreshing and hydrating that skin? Here are a few budget friendly diy face masks made from ingredients that you probably already have lying around the house.
-Honey and Yogurt Mask
Mix together 1 tbsp or natural unflavored yogurt and 1 tsp of honey. Apply to clean face with hands or a cotton ball. Relax and let sit for 10-30 minutes. Rinse with lukewarm water and moisturizer immediately.
-Avocado and Almond Oil Mask
Mix together ¼ of a mashed avocado, 1 tsp of almond oil and 1 tbsp of honey. Apply to clean face and let sit for ten minutes. Take a warm washcloth and lay it over your face for one minute and then wash the mask off. Moisturize immediately.
Just for a sweet added bonus I thought I would throw in a diy sugar lip scrub. Winter can be tough on your lips too and with this scrub they will stay silky smooth all winter long.
Mix together 1 part brown sugar, 1 part coconut oil and 1 part honey. You can make a large batch to keep and use daily or a small one just to try out. Once mixed gently scrub lips. You can use your finger or apply with a clean tooth brush. Rinse with warm water and apply your favorite lip balm!
