It’s the most humid time of the year. Whenever Kuma and I step out the door, we are welcomed by warm moist air. I’m seriously contemplating giving in to the Hermione hair and sporting a broom stick the next time I head out.
But the sticky humidity contributes to a much worse epidemic than frizzy hair. I’m talking clogged pores, people! Blackheads!
Store bought facial scrubs can only remove dirt from the surface, and are usually too harsh for the skin. Plastic micro-beads in facial scrubs can cause lacerations and allergies! Stay away from that stuff!
I bring to you, a natural, safe, cheap and far more effective way to get rid of dirt and blackheads!
And I bet that the stuff you need is already in your kitchen!
~ Things you will need ~
~ Honey and sugar (crystals) mix
~ Green Tea
~ Patience and Music ^_~
~ Steps ~
~ Heat about 500ml of water in a pan or kettle. Mix 2 tablespoons of salt into the water. Bring it to a rolling boil and pour it into a bowl. Add a green tea bag to the bowl. ~ Now turn on some relaxing music and light a candle or two. Lean over the bowl of steaming water and cover your head with the towel. Make sure to stay 10-12 inches away from the bowl. The Towel will trap the steam and it will slowly open up your pores.
Let Towel Cat guide you in the art of towel steaming. Or you could take the grudge route and scare the living daylights out of your mum when she enters your room! ~ Salt has anti-inflammatory and healing properties. You’ll notice a visible reduction in breakouts and redness. It will soothe your skin and heal acne scars!
Green tea is an anti-oxidant, and has anti-ageing properties, so glowing skin is right around the corner!
~ After 10 minutes under the towel, take your honey and sugar mix, and gently scrub your face for 1-2 minutes.
The sugar crystals will gently scrub away dirt and blackheads, now that your pores have opened up!
The honey will help balance oil production and moisturise your skin, leaving it soft and smooth!
P.S. You can rub ice all over your face to close your pores! This will ensure that no more dirt gets clogged in your pores again!
~ Repeat this process once or twice a week and you’ll notice a visible difference in how your skin looks and feels! Let me know how it goes pals!
