Everyone feels self conscious at times, and people with mental illness probably feel it even more often. I have severe adult acne, and I am always having flare ups, but some are worse than others. I have tried every product on the market. As soon as I think I have found “THE ONE” my skin becomes immune. With my mental illness if I am feeling less than my best it can cause a spiral. I recently have a new hobby as well. My new hobby is to find awesome stuff to try on pinterest, and make it more awesome.
I have attempted homemade face masks before, that helped, but still weren’t quite right. Most recently I started trying to make a face mask, and I finally found the right combination. My skin hasn’t been this smooth in years. It not only is taming my adult acne, my face looks younger, and brighter. My husband is so impressed he feels I should try to sell it. Well I have to be honest, it looks gross, so I think it wouldn’t sell well. I will, however, tell you how to make it.
Then I added the same about in Nutmeg and since I have oily skin I went very low on this, but still a bit of Coconut oil, and a dash of Vanilla Flavoring. I also added Coffee grounds, for exfoliation and blood stimulation. The tea tree oil for the acne, and its anti bacterial properties. When possible I tried to use raw organic ingredients.
I put the mixture on very liberally all over my face. I then leave it on for at least 10 minutes. The longer the better. Then when ready I massage it around to get serious exfoliation, then rinse off. I actually took a no make up selfie and wasn’t afraid to post it!
