I never was blessed with great skin, it’s always bothered me, upset me and made quite self conscious at times. As a kids I had freckles, as a teen I had zits and now as a 30 something I am moving in to the sun spots phase yey me! Somehow I stumbled across this idea for a face mask made from pantry items that promised to clear up spots, fade sun spots and pimple scars, exfoliate, cleanse, tighten pores it just seemed to good not to try. So I dug out the bi-carb soda, bought a lemon and found some Teetree Oil and had a go at it. I have to admit I was a bit scared as it sounded a bit nasty like it could burn my entire face off and maybe a new one would grow, but not the case it is amazing!!!
2 x Tbsp Bicarb Soda
1/2 Lemon Squeezed
2 x Drops of Teetree Oil
Mix it until it’s a consistency you like and plop it on your face. You could add water to lesson the active ingredients if you have very sensitive skin, which I do, but my face loved it. I put it on only for about 3 minutes the first time as I was that worried about my sensitive skin, but it was fine. The second time a week later (I like to do these things on Sunday nights) I left it on for 10 minutes. It kind of dries hard and when you wash it off you can feel the crunchy bicarb soda exfoliating your skin. Wash it off with cool water, pat dry and feel your new face OMG! It is as good as new, if you have some pimples the Tea Tree Oil will sort them out, if you have pimple scars or sun spots the lemon juice will sort them out, the bicarb is very cleansing so it will remove dead skin cells and all the other crap that accumulates on your face.
So there you go, a day spa in your bathroom that didn’t cost you a cent. Try it and let me know how you went! Now get off the net, get to the pantry and then the bathroom and try this awesome home made chemical and preservative free face mask.
