Healthy Food and Skin.

After a rather heavy reunion night out with friends, both myself and my best friend Sunny were feeling a bit worse for wear. Yesterday we had a lie in and a TV/bad food day, which definitely helped but left us and our skin feeling guilty. So we decided to have a healthy evening tonight! We indulged in some home-made face-masks and I thought I'd share with you how I made it and what my favourite ingredients are :-)
I used:
1 tbsp of completely natural yogurt,
1-1.5 tbsp of oats,
3 teaspoons of honey,
and 1 tbsp of unrefined brown sugar.
I've got really dry and very sensitive skin, and yogurt is really moisturizing so I was probably a bit more generous with the yogurt! Oatmeal is a all natural cleanser, and produces a moisturizing milk when it gets wet. Honey is good for healing! It disinfects and helps gets rid of scars, and I read somewhere that sugar is good for dry skin, but I'm not sure why. What I am sure about is that it's an exfoliator, as is salt, but a lot more gentle because it dissolves and all it's goodness goes into your skin! :D Salt is better for oily skin as it draws out excess moisture!

Using natural ingredients is so much better than using artificial chemically products, especially for my delicate skin! And you know exactly what's going in! You just have to be careful about getting your ingredients chemical free and unrefined.
Sunny has a completely different skin type which is more combination than mine and breakout prone, and all these ingredients work well for her too, because they're natural oils they're much less likely to clog pores but are still really moisturizing!


Sunny has a tasty honey face!

To carry on the healthy theme of the night we had yummy berries to stop us craving chocolate! YUM YUM YUM YUM YUM YUM!!!
