|Applying the mask- neem powder and olive oil with a little bit of water.|
So I have been breaking out this week and my skin feels dull and blotchy. I did the turmeric mask last week Friday and it did have my face looking brighter but for some reason my complexion is dull and blotchy for the last two days and I have had small outbreaks. I tried things like cleaning my phone with some anti-bacterial wipes- # 1 reason why you might be breaking out on your cheek. I washed and changed my pillow cases, cleaned my makeup brushes and wore my hair away from my face, so I think it must be some hormonal thing. One of the many joys of being a woman is that your hormones affect your skin. yay! But there's good news. I received a goodie package in the mail!!!!!! My girl Omo in Toronto, hooked me up with some ayuverdic goodies. If you don't know what the word means don't worry- lately as you know I have been researching and experimenting with home made beauty treatments and I complained about not having an Asian or Indian or Middle Eastern store in St. Kitts to get all the ingredients for the homemade recipes like turmeric.( which luckily I found). And Ms. Zee heard my cry and sent me some goodies in the mail. I got
-Henna for hair-black and blonde
Omo reminded me that Neem powder is good for acne, so great timing for me to try out a neem powder face mask. I looked up the recipes online and they are pretty simple. Here's the simpliest one I saw some others saying you can use olive oil, grapeseed oil and even rose water.
