If you could Photoshop yourself on a daily basis, would you? The truth is, many of us have skin issues. We have things we don’t like. But we have what we have, we should rock what got, and fix what we can.
I have always been diligent about taking care of my skin, as my mom instilled the fear that sleeping with makeup on ages your skin 30 days. True or not, I NEVER go to sleep without washing my face, applying a little lotion and a spritz of lavender (just because I die for it.)
Now I have to get personal for a minute which I do not always do, nor enjoy. But the million times I have Googled the question, coupled with the fact that I’ve never found a solution that works is reason enough to share it with you lovelies. I have PCOS, and without getting into it, basically it affects my hormones DRAMATICALLY. AND to really get dirty in the root of it, the hormone wackiness lends my sensitive bikini line skin to be extremely irritable and susceptible to in-grown hairs. Plus I workout everyday and rumor is that sweat and tight clothing like yoga pants do not help the ingrown sitch. HOLLER! Talk about feeling sexy.
And I have tried everything under the sun. Everything to the point of too much pain and too many bumps to show for it. But I think I found a golden concoction that smooths the skin and my face and my bikini, it’s dirt cheap and EASY. (That’s what she said.)
DIY Beauty Mask + Ingrown Magical Cream
Two ingredients. That’s it.
To make enough cream for your face and bikini line:
- Mix equal parts – I used 1 tbsp of Apple Cider Vinegar and 1 tbsp of Indian Healing Clay
- Stir it all up!
- Spread it on pretty thick
- Grab a glass of chambubbly and let it sit for 5-10 minutes and then wash it off
- **If treating/preventing ingrows, make sure you exfoliate in the shower and I love the Dermalogica’s Exfoliating Towel
Two things. Ignore my overgrown eyebrows, those were my next step in my beauty day. Also, I know my skin is not perfect but this is me glowing with no makeup and fairly clean pores.
I swear by this lady lovely cream, like it has literally changed my life. BUT know that everyone’s skin is different and it is your largest organ so take care of it and maybe test a small patch of skin to make sure it is safe for YOU.
BONUS: If you have PCOS, my apologies, it sucks quite a bit. My best tips are this, go see an acupuncturist (an original tip from Gina herself), take a strong B Vitamin and take 2 tablespoons of Apple Cider Vinegar EVERYDAY.
