Today I want to share another thing with you... which is my latest skincare obsession =D
lol haven't showed my naked face in a while =P
So lately I've been noticing that my pores have been getting bigger O_O reason? It's simple: because the heater has been drying out my skin!
I do leave a cup of water in my room to have a little bit of moisture, but it's just not enough because it's been getting so cold and we turn the heater up like crazy.
I usually like to use plain yogurt mask or oatmeal yogurt mask, but I wanted something more hydrating, so I decided to give this DIY mask another go =)
Of course, from bubzbeauty XD
I did try this mask when Bubbi first uploaded this mask, but I thought it was just okay at that time. For some reason, my skin really doesn't like honey =_= every time I put honey in my DIY mask, my skin seems to absorb less.
So anyway since I have all that coco powder sitting around I thought I'd give it ago, this time just using my favorite yogurt from Stonyfield and Hershey's cocoa powder =) and ohmygosh, I LOVE it! it does give that extra hydration <3 <3 <3
it contains antioxidants!! lol! Cocoa is supposed to be really good for you... minus all that sugar that usually accompanies most cocoa products lol!
I like to put a lot of cocoa powder in my yogurt, mix them up real well, put it in the fridge then go shower. After I'm all clean I would apply the mask to my whole face. It's interesting though cuz the cocoa powder does change the yogurt into a more whipped texture that reminds me of mousse????
leave it on for about 25-30 minutes.
Results are happy, hydrated, and may I say, radiant skin =D (haha I think so! too shameless? XD)
My skin is naturally a bit pink-toned compared to the rest of my body
Anyway my skin has never felt better at the moment =D My skin tone has been more even than ever as long as I can remember (not just because of this mask, but it's a gradual process of eliminating anything that might aggravate my skin. For example, I stopped using any clay masks which is definitely the culprit that contributed to the redness of my skin). It's still a bit pink but that's just how my skin naturally is =)
I hope you guys give it a go ^_^ Especially if your skin is dried out and it seems like no matter how much moisturizer you put on your skin is still dry. I have been using this mask non stop for a week now =D lol but I'm gonna let my skin take a break from it and stop using it every day.
If you do try it out let me know what you think ^_^
Happy hydrated skin ^_~
