DIY: Facial Treatments and giveaway!

Hi ladies! This was my not-so-good day, because of school and some of not-my-responsibility-task that was given to me. First, I need to wake up as early as 4:30 am! I just have less than 2hrs sleep after I posted my Random Beauty tips and its killing me to wake up that early! Honestly, my regular waking time is 1pm-5pm, I can also sleep as long as 18 hrs! hehehe! that is my special skills and they called me SNORLAX for that (its a pokemon character who loves to sleep). So, after my class in Manila, I need to run to my second subject in Quezon City for my Psychology class, thanks for my guidance counselor, he allowed us to have some nap on his office ^^. After my class in Psychology, my professor in one of my major subject asked me to take place of her because she can't make it because blah..blah...blah! OMFG! I need to stay for another 3hrs! So exhausted, my eyes are really tired and want to have some sleep. This is actually the first time to teach English for freshmen and I killed them by spelling time! So sad, that even I gave almost bonus words, there are still who get lower than 10. I already took a nap for 3hrs and since I miss you all, I'm gonna post about DIY facial treatments!

I hope everybody experienced facial treatments at some beauty salon and pay for almost 1,500 or almost $30, am I right? I hate Math! Where we can achieved the same result in our own kitchen!


::.Skin Sauna

A good deep cleansing treat is to give your face a sauna.This is especially good for congested skin.

You need to fill a bowl with near boiling water and add four drops of each of the essential oils recommended for your skin type.
NORMAL : Mandarin and Lavender.
OILY : Lemon and Eucalyptus.
DRY : Rose and Chamomile.

Place a towel over your head and hold it over the bowl from a distance of about 30cm for a period of around two minutes. This opens the pores and prepares it for a face mask. You should not use a face sauna if you have sensitive skin, are pregnant or suffer from asthma.

::. Exfoliates

You can use your favorite exfoliation product
ex. apricot scrub You can also use brown sugar to exfoliates dead skin cell and deep seated dirt.

::. Facial Mask

This will help to solve some issues like dry and oily skin.

Face mask for dry skin

1. Take 1 tbsp olive oil and mix with 2 tbsp of fresh cream, leave it on the face for 10 minutes and then wash your face with warm water.

2. Mix 1 tbsp of honey with 15 drops of orange juice and 1 tbsp of fuller’s earth and add 1 tbsp of rose water. Mix well and apply on the face, wash off after 10 miuntes.

Face mask for oily skin

1. Mix a tbsp of honey with 1 egg white and apply thickly on the face and neck. Leave for 10 minutes and wash off.

2. Mix 2 tbsp of papaya pulp with 10 drops of lemon juice and leave it for 20 minutes and then rinse well.

3. Take fresh juice of any of the fruits (orange, sweet lime, watermelon or papaya) and apply on the face as a mask. This is very relaxing, it cleanses the skin, closes pores and stimulates blood circulation.

Random Facial Mask:

Carrot Facial Mask

Ingredients Needed:
2-3 large carrots
4 1/2 tablespoons honey

Cook carrots, then mash. Mix with honey. Apply gently to the skin, wait 10 minutes. Rinse off with cool water.

Glowing Facial Mask

You will love your radiant skin after using this recipe...

All you need is:
1 tbsp fuller's earth
1 tbsp honey
1 tbsp mashed papaya

Mix and put on face for 20 minutes then rinse off.

Honey Facial Mask

Perhaps the best facial mask is honey.

Place a cloth in warm water and apply to your face to open the pores. Smear on honey, and leave on for 15 to 30 minutes.
Rinse off with warm water, then use cold water to close the pores.
Use once a week.

Orange Yogurt Mask

Ingredients Needed:
* 1 tsp plain yogurt (I chose Balkan Style)
* the juice of 1/4 of an orange

Stir to mix and then dip fingers into mixture and smooth onto face. The sensation is both cool and relaxing. Leave on for a five minutes and then rinse. If you are feeling sluggish, this is the perfect mask for you.

* Yogurt will cleanse and nourish your skin
* The orange is full of Vitamin C and AHA's

::.Tightening your pores

Wash your face with a cold water and dub some ice on your face, this will help to close your pores.

You can also use toner.

:: Apply moisturizer

Any moisturizer will do as long as recommended for your skin type.

Tadah! You have your facial at the comfort of your house!

Hope you like it girls!
