I have observed that most of the people pamper their skin only on sundays or holidays . I confess , even I was like this when I was in school. Even though my life has become more hectic since last one year because I have to manage my blog and my college simultaneously , which means I get no time for myself . And my work not only includes this , I am also learning German language from Max Mueller Bhavan (a part of german embassy) which adds to my workload . But still somehow I take out 20 minutes daily to take proper care of my skin . NO I don’t use face masks daily but I follow the CTM regime quite seriously in the morning . By not masking daily I do not mean that I do not use kitchen ingredients daily on my face. I use face masks on my skin three times a week but only natural face masks . On days when I do not use face mask , I apply any fruit or sometimes vegetables that I have at home , favorite ones being papaya , watermelon , tomato , potato and orange .
Most of us have been habitual to the idea that face masks are meant for holidays or when we have time. But I promise you , start using masks three times a week and also try fruits that I mentioned above on your face , the texture of your skin will improve leaps and bounds .
What I have noticed after one month of using masks more frequently and applying different fruits on my face directly , was that the skin condition improved drastically , blackheads reduced , oil formation is controlled . My skin looks more hydrated ,vibrant and pores looked smaller .
We all have hectic lives , taking care of skin and laying back with a mask on helps relax ourselves and have some peaceful time . You can’t hurry the absorption of skincare, and you can’t hurry a face mask. Sometimes, when the pressures of the week gets too much, a mid-week face mask treat forces you to slow down, stop and chill for a few minutes.
Just remember that we owe ourselves some time to relax and unwind. Just take out half an hour from your schedule and your skin will shine .
