No matter how much makeup you put on your face, your problems won’t disappear. In fact, during the Victorian era, a well to-do lady was to have very minimal (barely visible) to no makeup on. Oh dear, but what if we’re not born with porcelain skin? :O
Women, therefore, resorted to homemade skin care treatments. Many of these creams contained water, almond oil, and floral scents, particularly rose, lilies, or violets. (source)
Today I will be recommending Fresh Face Masks from Lush to achieve soft and glowing skin!
Out of the 9 face masks by Lush, I have tried 5 of them: BB Seaweed,Brazened Honey, Love Lettuce, Oatifix, and The Sacred Truth. While all of the face masks leave skin cleansed and smooth, I found that The Sacred Truth was the mask for my combination skin. Meant for dry or maturing skin, this face cream is not limited to both but is also good for dull or sallow appearing skin, or just for regular maintenance. After all, the earlier you start, the better your skin will be. Whenever I use this mask, I simply cannot stop touching my cheeks for the rest of the day. Imagine baby-soft skin that glows!
“The Sacred Truth contains a powerful combination of rich, softening ingredients like linseed, eggs and shea butter to deeply moisturize and nutritious wheat grass, papaya, green tea and ginseng root to restore essential vitamins and brighten.”
If you would like to be more ‘authentic’ and use a face mask that contains almond oil, I recommend Brazened Honey, Love Lettuce, or Catastrophic Cosmetic (I have not tried this one yet). At $6.95 (USD/CAD) a pot (2.1oz), these masks will last you up to 5 uses, depending on how much you use and how often. Too expensive to try or rebuy? Take a look at your groceries and make your own face mask! The egg whites face mask, for instance, is great for those with oily skin.
P.S. You are what you eat, so don’t forget to eat healthy and drink lots of water!
