A Fabulous Skincare for Oily Skin

Having Oily Skin can be a real pain ⇒ 8 Easy Step to kill that pain! Especially when you are constantly having bad breakouts. As someone with incredibly oily skin, I can tell you that I have done a lot of research on this in the hope of preventing such breakouts; and now I think I have found a routine that works well for me. I wanted to share this with you in the hope it does the same for you:)

1. Wash your Face

This might seem obvious but it’s surprising how much you can forget to do this sometimes. It’s easy enough to do when you have a shower, but you really should be washing your hair twice a day if you can. This way any build up of oil and dirt accumulated throughout the day can be washed off.

2. Exfoliate

When I was a teen, I didn’t really know what exfoliating was and I left it out of my skin routine. My skin was always flaky around my nose which caused more spots due to blocking my pores. When I finally started exfoliating, it took me a good year to find the right scrub for me. Now, I exfoliate usually once every week. List compelled by GingerFox.

3. Moisturising

To be honest, the first time I read about moisturising oily skin, I was skeptical. I mean- my skin was oily enough without adding anything else into the mix! However I was completely wrong. As I have sensitive skin I use simple light moisturiser, and it works wonders for me.

Another option here- to avoid any chemicals contained within conventional moisturisers- is to use Argan Oil. The first day I tried this, it felt strange. But after a few minutes it soaks right in and it is really nice. I also add in tea tree oil to mine because it has anti-bacterial properties.

4. Face Masks

Face masks are an essential part of any good skincare routine- however they are often forgotten. I recommend using a face mask once a week if possible, to provide a deep cleanse that may not be achieved with your every day face wash and make-up removers.

5. Diet

Diet is a big part of having healthy skin, because if you don’t look after yourself inside- your body won’t be healthy on the outside. Foods such as nuts and fish are good for skin because they contain essential vitamins.

Taking about nuts, I have concocted for you a lovely and amazing almond milk recipe that will make your skin glow naturally.

6. Drink Water

Drinking water is one of the best ways to rid your body of toxins. It is recommended to drink 8 glasses of water each day (2 litres).

If you aren’t keen on the taste of water- try adding in some fruit to it to give it some flavour. Lemon water is a brilliant way to cleanse your body and if you drink it first thing in the morning- it can help to kick start your metabolism.

PS – You can also drink lemon water.

7. Primer

The first time I wore make-up, nobody told me about using primer. It wasn’t until last year that I decided to give it a go. If you haven’t used primer before- you should.

It basically provides a barrier on your skin and stops foundation soaking into your pores and causing blockages. It also makes your make-up go on a lot further.

8. Sun care

I can’t urge this strongly enough: look after your skin when you go out in the sun. Not only can your skin become badly burnt, but you can end up with age spots and even cancer.

It is really important to wear sun lotion before you go out into the sun and also apply after sun when you come back inside to stop your skin from drying out. Another point is that when you sweat- your pores get blocked and this can cause spots- so make sure you wash your body well. The benzoin could also be a good alternative to protect your skin daytime.

The Beverage of the Goddess

Almond milk is a plant milk with a creamy texture and nutty taste. It contains neither cholesterol nor lactose and is often consumed by the lactose-intolerant and others who wish to avoid dairy products, including vegans. Commercial almond milk comes in sweetened, unsweetened, plain, vanilla and chocolate flavors, and is usually enriched with vitamins. Recipe and photo from Lasofra. The good thing is that you can make your own almond milk at home, and here is how.

What you need

  • 2 cups water + more for soaking

∴ Instructions

1 – Place the almonds in a bowl and cover with about an inch of water. They will plump as they absorb water. Let stand on the counter, covered with a cloth, overnight. You can also refrigerate for up to 2 days.  It will do the job  😉  ❤ Simple.

2- Drain the almonds from their soaking water and rinse them thoroughly under cool running water. You will notice at this point the almonds feel a little squishy if you pinch them.

TIPS : It’s best to discard the soaking water because it contains phytic acid, which inhibits the body’s ability to absorb nutrients.

3- Place the almonds in the blender and cover with 2 cups of water. Pulse the blender a few times to break up the almonds, then blend continuously for two minutes. The almonds should be broken down into a very fine meal and the water should be white and opaque.

4- Pour the almond mixture into the strainer. You can then squeeze & press (with clean hands) to extract as much almond milk as possible. You should get about 2 cups.

Done! Taste the almond milk, and if a sweeter drink is desired, add sweetener to taste.

Benefits of Almond Milk:

While almond milk is becoming more and more popular, it is important to note that it does not provide as much protein or calcium to be a complete substitute, so make sure you receive adequate amounts from other sources. However, almond milk has a lot of benefits. It help with weight management and the following 😉

  • It keeps your heart healthy and do not impact your blood sugar. Keeping your cholesterol under closed watch. What about your digestion? No worries here. Almond milk is also spot on! It will keep your digestion in check.
  • It keeps your bones strong since it also contributes to muscle strength and has natural healing properties.
  • It keeps your skin glowing. Almond milk is an excellent source of vitamin E, a known antioxidant. Antioxidants protect cells from damage caused by free radicals. It contributes to collagen and elastin depletion.

Vitamin E, present in almond milk, protects the skin from the harmful effects of free radicals; this makes the skin healthy and younger-looking.

  • And the big plus. You will love the taste and how easy it is for storage and conservation made easier. It does not require refrigeration! Yep 

Hope you enjoy the recipe. Always remember what you eat reflect on your skin!

Happy week end to all of you, I am off to the beach now ❤❤❤
