DIY: Face Scrub to Combat those not so Pretty Pimples

It’s the weekend, and as you planning your outfit for the wedding tomorrow, your hot date or just a day out, you look into the mirror and you notice these horrible looking zits that are visible from a mile away, you try a few products hoping it will disappear or look less visible but these zits have become really comfortable on your face. This is freaking you out, so more zits appear and now you have no idea what to do, so you sadly decide to postpone¬†this date that you have been planning for, for quite a while until your face is back to normal. Sounds familiar? We’ve all been there at some point, cancelling due do the hideous zits on our faces.

Well, that’s not going to be an issue any longer, as yours truly has came up with this amazing DIY that will help combat those not so pretty zits. This amazing DIY will help you get rid of those zits using all natural ingredients using ingredients which are right in your kitchen and also give you clear skin overnight.

 

To make this scrub, you will need:

*Less then half a lemon

*1 tbsp. raw honey

*1 tsp brown sugar

How to do it: Take the brown sugar and mix it into the honey. Then add the lemon and mix thoroughly. First cleanse your face and then apply the scrub all over your face. Massage in a circular motion for 20-30 seconds avoiding your eye area. Rinse your face and finish off with your favourite moisturizer.

Lemons: Lemons are natural exfoliants, and are packed with anti- bacterial properties which helps to diminish acne.

Honey: Honey is gives you an amazing and natural glow, and its filled with antioxidants.

Brown Sugar: Brown sugar makes a great exfoliator for the skin as it dissolves easily and improves the texture of the skin.

Well, after doing this, you won’t have to cancel any of those plans and did I mention that your skin will smell amazing. And, oh, you welcome!

Wake up with fresh, bright and glowy skin

You know how each of us want super amazing skin when we wake up and each day, but most of the time getting this super amazing and glowing skin fills your pocket with an extremely big hole hole and to add on to that hole it takes a lot of time and commitment. Well don’t you worry about this any longer because yours truly is here ¬†and has decided to share a huge beauty secret with you (that she lives by), to help you get that amazing skin that you’ve been lusting after without even a cotton being unstitched in your pocket.

This product has changed my life and how I look when I wake up, like literally! And hopefully will change yours too. I obtained this product a month ago when I went to Dis- Chem and I’ve heard that using it before apply foundation will give your foundation the dewy finish that I’ve always want. So I thought why not? It’s not that expensive, if it doesn’t give me the dewy finish that I want I’ll figure out another way or something else to use it for. And as I expected my foundation looked so dewy and fresh, I loved it. I was using this product for a few weeks with my foundation and since I only use a few drops each time, I thought well I’d better find another use for you because you can’t just be used occasionally.

Well I’m sure you are wondering and cringing in your seats or beds and screaming what is this product? Just tell us what this product is so we can go out and get our taste of this product already! Let me just tell you what this not- so- mysterious product is and then I can get back to helping you get that glowing skin when you wake up.

Sweet Almond Oil. Yes, you read it right! Sweet Almond Oil, that’s what I’ve been going on about and shall be going on about in this post.

Continuing about how this product is super amazing; about ten days ago, as I was about to put my eye cream on before I slept, I decided that I was going to put the sweet almond oil under my eye instead of the eye cream.

Sweet Almond Oil: R47,95

I liked the way my under eye looked when I woke up in the morning. I did it the evening and again liked the result. The third night before I slept I decided that I wasn’t just going to put it under my eyes but also on my face and eyebrows, so I put a few drops and massaged it in a circular motion on my face. When I woke up the next morning and looked in the mirror I was so amazed! My skin looked so fresh, bright and glowy. I was in awe!. I did this continuously and each day when I look in the mirror I’m probably more amazed then what I was the previous day. Not only does my skin look super fresh and glowy but after a few days I could see the marks on my face being reduced and my dark circles under my eyes were not as visible, it also helps with the growth of eyebrows.

I can even go out just when I wake up because my skin is so fresh and looks amazing. This miracle in a bottle can also be used all over your body to get super smooth and glowy skin.

I hope you enjoyed this post, and if you have tried it or plan on trying it, I would love to know if you obtained similar results.

Please like and share, so that everyone knows how to get “I woke up like this” skin.
