There's something about the sun being a little hotter, the breeze a little sweeter, to make you want to spend every single day in the outdoors. I feel like a total granny when I walk into shops looking for wicker baskets and tropical print blankets. I can't even stop obsessing about the picnics I'll be planning for this spring!
But also around this time is when I start breaking out like-A LOT! It gets hot outside and I have this horrible habit of touching my face a lot. With the added heat I find myself doing that more often to wipe away sweat or fan myself in the hopes of cooling down. So basically at the end of the day I'm a mess and it takes a toll on my skin in the long run.Lesson learned? Don't touch your face. This month I've been loving this Honey Papaya Facial Mask and Rosy Glow Facial Steam to add into my evening cleansing routine.
I'd never done masks before except the oatmeal and avocado ones I'd made in the kitchen from Pinterest DIYs . But unlike that one, this went on smooth and cool rather than chunky and hard (my bad lol) readying my chips for bits of guacamole that slid down my cheek took a lot more energy too! The major active ingredient in the mask is the Papaya enzyme "papin", which is a gentle exfoliant that dissolves and digests inactive proteins and dead skin cells. That's the kind of stuff that builds up on our skin and clogs our pores giving the skin a dull appearance.
Soooo the Papaya mask goes on ahead and takes care of that. Not to mention there are a bunch of other yummy stuff in the mask
It smells like summer & spring & sunny days & breakfast & fancy cafes ALL got together and had a baby and it's all in this little jar that I slather on my face generously. Oh baby!
I usually do the facial mask first and rinse off with the rosy facial steam which is a lovely blend of herbs and essential oils that are specially formulated to revive dull and dry complexions.
