DIY: Let's clear that skin !

Good afternoon, sorry I've been a bit MIA lately I've been really busy as you know i was in the USA (i'll go into that at a later date) for a few months but now I'm back and ready to rumble !!! So anyway I have LOADS of projects planned for the upcoming future, what with Christmas, Halloween and birthdays around the corner I have lots of baking to do and no doubt I will be recording my every step to ensure you don't miss a thing 👍

Anyway today my post is all about SKIN !!! Weather you have oily, dry or combination skin we can all look after our skin a little bit better and rather than using the store bought face scrubs, cleansers and moisturisers which are mostly full of harsh chemicals, I'm going to let you in on a few of my go to skin remedies that I make at home with little effort and may I add it hardly costs a £1. BARGAIN! And there are no harsh chemicals involved. Ok so enough of me chattier chatting, let's get to it;

1) BLACKHEAD REMOVER - get rid of your blackheads in literally five minutes with this quick and easy blackhead remover, all you have to do is chop a lemon in half and add 2-3 drops of honey straight to the centre of the lemon, then rub the lemon all over your face making sure to pay close attention to the blackhead prone areas of your face. Leave this lemon and honey mixture on your face for around go 10 minutes and then rinse with cold water and you will see the results immediately !

2) ACHE SCARS - did you pick your spots when you were a teenager and
Now you are paying the price with scarring? Well worry no more with this easy ache scar remover. First off all your going to need is 4 tablespoons of honey, 3 teaspoons of plain yogurt, 4 teaspoons of lemon juice and 1 egg white. Now once you have all these products your going to want to mix them together and apply the mixture to your clean skin and leave it here for 15-20 minutes, then rinse of with cold water. You should do this twice a week and after a few weeks you will see visible reductions in your ache scars.

3) OILY SKIN - Do you suffer from oily, shiny skin that you have to constantly powder or blot ? Well now I have to answer to your blotting prayers. Your going to want to take a avocado, one egg white and half a teaspoon of lemon juice and mix them together to create a paste, then apply this paste to your freshly washing face and leave for 10-15 minutes. After this time you should rinse your face of with cold water and vwalllllllllaaaa!!! Your skin should now me oil free.

4) DRY SKIN - or do you have to opposite problem and your skin is constantly dry, forget the store bought moisturisers and creams, here's what you need to do... Go and grab 2 tablespoons of mayonnaise and 1 teaspoon of baby oil, combine them together in a bowl and apply this mixture to your face, elbows, knees or anywhere else you may have dry skin. Leave this mixture on for 20 minutes then rinse of with cold water. Repeat weekly for easiest results.

Anyway I think that's all i have for now, I'll be back a lot sooner than my precious post and will have more exiting, useful, creative tips and tricks to share with you (maybe even a little video to go along side them)

Thanks for reading my blog and as always have a great day 👋
