It's the third day of our Valentine week. As promised, I am here yet again with some ideas to make this week as well as Valentine's Day special. With Valentine's Day knocking your door lovebirds have already started making arrangements for the same. We spend copious amount of time pleasing or you can say showing our love and care for a person, be it our partner, children or friends. But, do you know that our skin needs the same amount of love and care or more ? Imagine going out for a date with a rough and blotchy skin !! Your date will surely be terrified !!
Taking care of your skin should be included within our regular habits. Humans can speak. But how would you be able to understand whether your skin needs that equal amount of love and care ? Your skin can't speak. What you need to do is look for signals. Skin as a sensory organ varies in texture and thickness from one part of the body to the next. Along with various skin types comes a variety of skin ailments - dry and irritated skin, blotchy skin, acne and some serious ones like eczema, psoriasis etc. Although, a number of beauty products are available in the stores for your skin, it is advisable not to apply any cream, oil or lotion without prior consultation with your doctor.
Well, for today, just keep it light and let's focus on some homemade recipes for giving you that soft, smooth skin. Let's say, you have to go to this much awaited Valentine's party or an evening date with your boyfriend or you first date ever !! Looking beautiful is mandatory and you.need.to.look.the.best.
But how ?? All is well when you have strawberries for your skin. Strawberry Honey Face Mask.
Here's what you need :
- 9-10 fresh strawberries
- 2 tablespoons of honey
- 1 tablespoon of Jojoba Oil ( I have used Soulflower Cold Pressed Jojoba Carrier Oil )
- 1 tablespoon of sugar
In a bowl, mash the strawberries until smooth and then mix honey, oil and sugar and keep on stirring till a thick paste is formed. Now with a clean brush, apply the paste on your face avoiding the eye area. Apply it gently and the coating should be thick on your face. Lie down and leave the mask on for 5-7 minutes. Wash it with warm water thereafter.
Strawberry along with satisfying your taste-buds is also a great antioxidant. It has cleansing properties and also removes dead cells and gives you a soft skin with the lingering strawberry fragrance.
Jojoba heals dry, rough and irritated skin and lends a shimmering touch to it.
Sugar removes dead cells as well as moisturizes your skin along with cleansing your pores.
