Foody face masks whilst pondering London❤

Hi Chumerinas!!

Feel like I haven’t blogged in ages! Sorry about that, but I’ve just been lazing it up the last couple of days and spending time with the family, speaking of happy Fathers day everyone!!

So I’ve realised that 10 days from today I’m off to London for the very first time!! I’ve been overseas a few times before but never the UK and I’m sooooo excited!!

Any ideas of what I should go do? I know like the obvious touristy stuff but maybe some hidden gems? Feel free to leave some comments :)

Last week I made some amazing face masks, and I thought I’d share it with you :)

It’s for dry skin, because it’s winter here in South Africa and my skin goes really really dry and these face masks are the only things that helps.

The first one is an avocado one (they’re in season at the moment yay!)

All you need is:

  • ½ very ripe, soft avocado
  • ¼ cup honey

Then just mash the avo and stir in the honey, apply to your skin and leave for 10 to 15 minutes. Rinse and moisturize.

The second one is a Oatmeal and onion mask and is recommended for oily and acne prone skin and it’s really good :) It takes a little time to prepare and you might think the onion is weird, but it’s really nice and helps with controlling and preventing acne as well as with the scars it leaves behind.

All you need is:

  • 1/4 cup boiling water
  • 1/3 cup plain oatmeal
  • 1 large yellow or white onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon of honey

Pour the boiling water over the oatmeal. Let it steep for 5 minutes. Make a smooth puree of the onion in a food processor. Add onion and honey to the oatmeal paste while still warm. Stir (for 2 minutes) and spread on face leaving it for 10 minutes. If the mask isn’t thick enough, add more honey.

You can use it again, just store in the fridge for up to a week, but don’t freeze it and you can also warm it up when you want to use it again.

Ok I hoped you like this, and let me know if you’ve tried it or if you know of some amazing face mask as well.

Have a great week!! ❤xoxo
