I was in Bangkok last weekend for a stretch of 5 days bumming around the bustling, crowded city enjoying the sights, sounds and smells. Midway, though, my face started spotting tiny oil clots.
I suspected that it was a due to the dry air in the air-conditioned room, sweat from walking around in the humidity during the day AND the fumes and dust from the very heavy traffic I walked with daily.
Back home, I would use the usual lotion cleanser to clean and tiny flakes would soon appear as I massaged the lotion into the skin.
With all that rubbing, more oil clots appeared. The skin was over-stimulated. Sigh.
So, today, I decided to get rid of the dead skin cells using yoghurt.
Took a teaspoon of plain, low-fat yoghurt from my fridge and pasted it all over my cleansed face.
Rested for 10 mins to let the yoghurt work it’s magic, I then cleaned it off with just water and a cotton pad.
My face looked lighter and clearer! Finer pores too, especially the nose area! More info about yoghurt as a facial in this article.
I ended the DIY facial with a mask from my stash of My Beauty Diary disposable masks.
Let’s hope that this mini-facial works!
