I work as a sales person. So makeup is absolutely my daily routine. Not good for my skin, I know. So I do some natural homemade skin care to preserve the balance. Here they are:
1. Makeup Remover
Before bed time, I give my face and neck a little massage using olive oil. It can even removes waterproof mascara, eye shadow or eye liner, but prevents skin from dryness. Afterwards, I was my face and neck with a little amount of liquid baby soap.
2. Ice Facial
Upon waking up in the morning, I rub my face and neck with a cube of ice. It is not an ordinary ice cube, actually. I infuse green tea and freeze it. This beauty secret of Korean artists is believed can reduce face swelling in the morning, and minimizes pores. Plus, anti-oxidant from green tea gives benefits for the skin.
3. Deep Conditioning
The night before my schedule to wash my hair, I apply some olive oil on my hair, mostly on the tip. Let it sit overnight, then wash using shampoo on the morning after. Everybody knows, olive oil is a great natural moisturiser.
4. Face Mask
Twice a week, I mix 1 table spoon of olive oil with a quarter tea spoon of turmeric powder, then apply it all over the face and neck. Let it sit for 5 minutes, then wash with a little liquid baby soap. Turmeric can help acne problems.
5. Face Scrub
Mix 1 table spoon ground coffee, 2 tea spoons brown sugar, 1 table spoon honey, 1 table spoon olive oil. Apply a sufficient amount to face and neck, then gently rub it in circular motion for a few seconds and wash thoroughly. This mixture is enough for 4 times scrubbing. I scrub my face once to twice a week.
