So, my skin has started to suck. Not sure if it’s an aging thing, the weather, or a combination of both. But I’m having issues I’ve never dealt with before. Forehead wrinkles, under eye circles, blotchiness, and break outs are things I have battled off and on since I hit my 20’s. My newest issue though is that my T zone has become so dry it was scaling. Specifically my forehead in between my eyes, and the creases of my nose.
I had a breakdown over it today and spent my lunchtime researching remedies. My breaking point was when I was sitting in my office, and I scratched my forehead and my SKIN WAS FLAKING OFF. I don’t care who you are, that is so not OK.
So I start searching. I checked pinterest and found a couple links to using olive oil to moisturize and cleanse makeup off. Started link hopping across YouTube and came across this video:
I decided it was perfect. I’m on a bit of a budget this week, so I needed to keep it cheap, plus I don’t know if this will be an ongoing issue, so a quick fix without a money dump is great. Best part was that it’s made with things I have at home in my kitchen. So if it sucks, no real loss!
I get home, run to my kitchen and whip up the concoction. All it takes is:
- 3 tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- 2 tablespoons Honey
- 1/2 cup Sugar
Mixed it together and quickly ran upstairs to hopefully get rid of my flakes.
It works. Not only does it work, but my skin feels downright amazing. I’ll probably do it once more in a few days, and then once a week. I mean, you can’t beat a cheap homemade scrub that works!
