Honestly, I woke up this morning with no idea what I was going to write about today. However, I made it a New Years Resolution to start this blog back up and start updating it every Sunday and I at least want to make it past the first month before I let it slip even once! All day I’ve been looking for something to write about and then it hit me right in the face. In fact, I smeared it all over my face about ten minutes ago. In case you were wondering, it did not go as intended.
I’m not sure how many of you have been scrolling through Pinterest looking for natural beauty tips but I imagine there are a few of you. Since they’ve been coming across my Wedding Planning account, I decided to give a few of them a try before adding them to an album for future brides to bring into their pre-wedding routine. So far, there’s only one that has stood out with almost immediate results and I’m sure a lot of you have heard of it. The Milk and Baking Soda mask shows a lot of promise…..but Holy Lord and Baby Hippos that shit burns!
The idea of this mixture is a cheap, effective, and chemical free alternative to acne products for those who are sensitive to them (like me!). All that is required to make it is about a tablespoon of baking soda and a touch of milk, just enough to turn the mixture into a paste to smear on your beautiful face.
Note: Upon slapping this gritty, white, slightly transparent goo on your face, you will in fact look like you just walked out of Brazzers audition.
If there is anyone on this planet with sensitive skin, it is I. That being said, I’m not sure how common it is for someone to feel like their face is on fire while wiping this mask off once it dried. I’m talking so much pain that I could have dunked my head in a bucket of lava to sooth the pain. I was not expecting this much pain. However, looking at my face after I got it all off, it looked like I stole it from an angel because there is not such thing as skin that soft and clean on earth. To my surprise, it wasn’t even red from all that pain! The face cloth you ask? Disgusting. Words can’t even discribe how much gunk came off of my face with just that one sitting. I’m not even posting pictures this go around in fear of traumatizing someone. This stuff literally pulled every little thing from every pore on my face and stuck it to a facecloth for me to wash (or I’ll probably just burn after seeing what came off my poor face).
So there you have it, I finally tried to do a Pinterest home remedy for something. It worked, and the pain was only agonizing. Ladies, Gentlemen, neither, both, pending: I do say that this stuff really works….as long as you have a high pain tolorance and skin that is not nearly as sensitive as mine. Ye be warned.
