Video: Beauty Blogger’s Skin Routine

My skin routine has changed several times in my life and I am sure it will continue to evolve as I develop my knowledge of all things beauty and skincare, but I can honestly say that I love how my skin has been looking lately. Because of that, I want to share my skin routine with you. Maybe all of these products will be perfect for you and maybe none of them will be, but here is the beauty of my skin care routine. It is affordable! If I can find an inexpensive product that works well, I am not going to keep looking for a fancier product that would do the same thing. I am a cheapo! So with that being said, yes there are probably better products out there than the ones that I use. BUT for the price I am paying for my current skin routine, I am happy with the results!

Homemade All Natural Face Mask

I have weird skin. In professional terms, it is referred to as “combination skin”, but let’s be real honest and say that it is just weird. One minute I have sad dry skin. The next minute I have oily acne prone skin. The third minute (which is actually more like 10 seconds) I have nice baby smooth skin. That third minute (10 seconds) usually comes after I have treated my skin with something special, like a face mask. I always love the way my skin feels after I put a face mask on. My problem is remembering to use them! I try to come up with a mental schedule of when I need to use a face mask so that my face doesn’t have to suffer for so long in between treatments. My favorite face masks to use are homemade ones because I know exactly what I am putting on my skin. I like to know why I am putting each ingredient on there too so that if I have a certain problem with my skin, I can know what ingredient I need more or less of. I am going to share with you one of my favorite homemade face masks today!

In this face mask, I use oatmeal, honey, coconut oil, and lemon juice. If you really wanted to, you could put this face mask on your face and then eat it all. I don’t recommend it though… we might think you are weird. Here is why I use each of these ingredients.

Oatmeal- Oatmeal adds moisture to your skin and gives it a healthy glow.

Honey- Honey is also a great way to add moisture to your skin and brings out the gorgeous glow in your skin.

Coconut oil- Coconut oil is a natural conditioner. It helps get the moisture really deep into your skin.

Lemon juice- Lemon juice will help get rid of impurities and close your pores to help make your skin look nice and smooth.

Now to make your own face mask.

Homemade All Natural Face Mask
Author: McKenzie at Girl Loves Glam
Ingredients
  • 1/4 cup oatmeal
  • 1/2 Tbsp honey
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • lemon juice from one lemon
Instructions
  1. Put ingredients in bowl and mix together with a hand mixer.

This recipe makes enough for about 3-5 facials. Put it on your face after you wash your face and let it sit for a few minutes. Keep it away from your eyes. The lemon juice can really hurt if it gets in your eyes! Wash it off of your face and your skin will feel fantastic!
