Last week I tested out a homemade deep conditioner
. It was an avocado and mayonnaise concoction that had impressive results. Days later, my hair felt great!
This week I tested a homemade face mask. I tried out the Autumn Apple Face Mask
. The results were a little less impressive, but I'll share the recipe and experience with you, and you can see for yourself.
The Autumn apple face mask
This seasonal mask is designed to combat dry flaky skin that tends to creep up on us with the changing season. The apple and oatmeal recipe helps you get rid of dead skin cells, invigorating your skin, creating a bright, fresh complexion.
What you'll need
What to do
- 1/4 apple
- 1/2 tsp half and half
- 1 tsp honey
- 1 T oatmeal
- Small mixing bowl
- In a small bowl, combine ingredients, and mash together - I diced the apple very small first so it mashed easily
- Apply to face
- Leave on for 10 min.
Take a look through the gallery for steps with pictures.
What I'd do different next time
- I found this one awkward to apply, and as you can see in the picture, it was like trying to get apple juice and oatmeal to stick. I put in some extra honey to help it stay together more easily but it didn't really work.
- Oatmeal does not rinse down the sink with ease. So, unless you want to come back to us and find out how to fix your sink, I'd advise against it.
After rinsing the mask off, my skin felt fresh, but no better than if I had just washed my face. I was a bit disappointed with this DIY spa treatment. Most face masks that I've tried before have had a yogurt base so that the mask is applied like a paste. I think next time I'll stick to some old favorite homemade face masks. I've found a simple mixture of yogurt, oatmeal and honey to work wonders.
