FACIALS FRIDAYS | The Apple face mask/scrub

Yup, today's friday, and nope, i didn't forget that it's 'Facial Fridayyyyy'!


By the way, TGIF, and after the 2 weeks i've had, i'm embarking on a well-deserved rest *wipes brow*. It's been 2 hectic weeks, but i really had fun all the same. That's why it's good to do what you love doing and what you have a passion for. That way, no matter how tired you are, you will still love doing it, and you will put in your best.

I had good students who learnt well, and i really wish them well in their endeavors. And as they set out to set places for themselves as MUAs, may God help them achieve all they want to achieve.


Ok, so today's facials post is on a mask/scrub....The apple face-mask/scrub (doubles as a mask and a scrub). This mask/scrub is mainly for people with mature skin....perhaps in their late 30's and upwards. As the name implies, the main ingredient in this mask is the apple.


I've mentioned before that i didn't come up with these recipes, but i got them from my researches so that it will benefit you my readers..... anything for you...*tongue out*.

The Apple face mask/scrub is meant to help reduce fine lines and wrinkles and promote a youthful-looking appearance.... (who doesn't wanna look like a sweet sixteen *winks*). Even if you don't have mature skin, you can still use it to delay the appearance of wrinkles on your facial skin and help you age gracefully.....i really like!




INGREDIENTS
1 Small Apple

1 Tablespoon Heavy Cream

1 Teaspoon Olive Oil

PREPARATION
Peel the skin off the apple then grate the flesh of the apple on a grater.

Combine all three ingredients in a small mixing bowl.

When blended well, apply the face mask to your clean face and neck, leave for 20 minutes then srub with circular motions on your face, then rinse off with warm water.

Gently pat dry with a soft hand towel then apply an oil-free moisturizer.


WHY APPLES?

Sliced apples



Apples contain a high level of glycolic acid and when combined with the granules of the apple that you have blended, it creates an awesome exfoliator for the skin! It helps minimize scarring from acne, reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and removes cellular build-up from the skin, stopping oils and bacteria from getting trapped under the skin’s surface.


AND THE OIL AND CREAM?



Heavy cream


Heavy cream and olive oil will hydrate your skin while soothing irritated and inflamed skin. This combination will reduce fine lines and wrinkles as well.


Recommend this mask/scrub to your mum, your mum-in-law, and your aunts.

Have a wonderful weekend.

    1. Hello Jovita.

      Errrrrrrm, the cream I'm talking about in this pos† is no† actually body cream. The cream I'm refering to is the thick, fat-rich part of milk, which rises to the top when milk is fresh and is skimmed off.

      I'm sure you can ge† i† in stores. I†'s also called whipping/whipped cream.
