In this article, I want to share with you how I personally take care of my skin. So, without further ado let’s start.
One of my favorite treatments that I love using is a honey mask. And what makes honey so unique is that it’s nature’s antibiotic. So, not only will it help lighten the skin but also it has healing properties in there too where it helps heal the skin and nourish it. My favorite honey to use is Manuka honey. It’s much more rich in antibiotics than normal honey that you find on the market around the grocery store shelves, and it’s a little more expensive. If you are on a budget, Manuka honey might be a little more expensive but I love it because I don’t just use it on my face. wWenever I have a sore throat, or if I’m feeling sick, I take a teaspoon of Manuka honey, I just eat it. And the next day my throat feels better, and I don’t feel as sick. So, it’s really a wonderful way to heal the body and the skin. I do this twice a week where I apply honey on my face, I leave it for about five to ten minutes, and then I rinse it off, and my skin just feels amazing. This is a really great way to treat and nourish your skin.
And if you’re feeling a little fancy, then I recommend using a really good well-made skin mask. And this one is by Innisfree. I discovered this brand when I was in Korea, and I found the store, and I loved every single product that they had in there. It’s amazing quality, they believe in organic natural products. And what I love about this mask is that it’s a two-step process, so you have the serum that’s attached up here that you peel off and you apply on your face. It’s vitamin C, and then you apply the mask on. And right when you remove it, your skin just feels brand spanking new.
If buying mask like this is a little too expensive for you, there’s a way to make your own. It’s really simple. All you need are rectangle square cotton sheets and essence. What essence does is that it softens the skin, it lightens it, and it also helps prepare it for all the other products that you’re going to apply on later. So, what I do is I take the essence, I douse it all over the cotton pads, I let it sit for ten seconds, and then I start stretching it out. And then I peel it layer by layer, applying it all over my face, leaving it for about ten minutes, it’s good enough, and then just peeling it off, and your skin is going to feel so fresh and so rejuvenated. And then it’s ready for the next step.
The next step is to tone the skin. So when it comes to toners, you want to be careful with what’s on the market right now. Because there’s a lot on the market that has a lot of alcohol in it. And what alcohol does that it dries the skin. That’s the exact opposite of what you want to do. So. you want to find a toner that doesn’t have a lot of alcohol.
Besides using toner sometimes, I’ll switch it with apple cider vinegar. What I do, I take two cotton pads, one soaked in water, one soaked in apple cider vinegar; I wipe my face with apple cider vinegar, and then I wipe off with water, and I just keep doing it back and forth until my skin gets that tingly sensation. You don’t want to use apple cider vinegar raw on your face because it might sting a little too much and it might be a little too strong for the face, and that’s why I recommend offsetting it with water. So, water, apple cider vinegar, and just start mixing it up, and your skin is going to feel incredible; it’s going to be like” thank you so much for not piling on all these chemicals on my face and giving me something that is natural and raw.”
