As a student, and now part time worker, I’m always looking forward to the weekends, they are my me time. I pamper myself with my favorite face masks, play around with new makeup products and try out new hair-do’s, that sort of thing.
This weeks DIY Face Mask is one I am sure everyone will love. It’s specifically used to tackle unwanted blackheads and whiteheads which I’m sure most of us suffer from!
I have combination skin: oily on my t-zone and dry on my cheeks. Blackheads and whiteheads are my worst nightmare and it’s so hard to get rid of them especially when they are small.
If I say I’ve tried almost every remedy to get rid of them, trust me I have. Many end up to be just temporary solutions and in a week or so, they are back. So when I came across this simple, easy DIY Mask I knew I just had to give it a try!
Things You’ll Need;
- Colgate Toothpaste (RRP-12.95)
- Pick n Pay Brand Lodated Table Salt (RRP -R4.99)
Step One: Squeeze out one part of toothpaste in a bowl.
Step Two: Add one part of salt in the toothpaste bowl.
Step Three: Mix both of the ingredients
Step Four: Wet your face and then apply this paste on the affected area i.e. chin and nose. Let it sit for around 5-10 minutes. You will probably feel a tingling sensation but don’t worry its normal and it will go away after a few minutes.
Step Five: After 10 minutes, wet your fingers and gently massage the area with two fingers in circular motion. Be gentle as harsh massage can harm your skin.
Step Six: Now rinse your face thoroughly with warm water. To close facial pores take one ice-cube and rub it on your face. It will close the pores and will prevent the entry of dirt.
Some Quick Tips:
- Do not apply the above mixture close to your eye area as the aroma of mint toothpaste can cause irritation to eyes.
- Your nose can appear red initially but it’s normal.
- If you have dry skin then hydrate it thoroughly.
- Clean your face completely after completing the procedure to get rid of the paste.
