When you are stressed (regardless of whether it is "normal stress" or internal stress), it is often visible on the skin. I do not have a lot of pimples when I have calm periods, but right now there is so much to stand in and it is noticeable not least on the skin which has got a lot of blisters along the jawbones and is generally unclean and porous.
And part of the problem when you have bad skin due to stress, is that you rarely have so much time to do anything about it. Normally I would have done a facial sauna, peeling and a whole bunch of different things that are great, and then lots of sleep on it!
But now the reality does not really look like that, and therefore I thought I would tell you about a quick thunder cure that you can do while doing other things - face mask :)
Rinse face with warm water and cleanse skin. Feel free to rinse one a little longer than usual, to warm the skin and open up the pores properly.
Then I have two face masks in a row. I start with Lumene Matt Touch Deep-Cleansing Peat Mask* which is deep cleansing.
Rosemary opens the pores so that they are easier to clean.
Mineral rich peat is antibacterial and cleanses the skin from grease and impurities, and then closes the pores.
When that mask has done the hard work, I finish with a mask that is both deep cleansing and at the same time incredibly moisturizing, caring and soothing for the skin. It is also very important, especially when you have stressed skin. My skin, which is usually very sensitive (and oily), is even more sensitive now under stress, flares up for nothing!
Botanicals Balancing Mask Green clay & Avocado is an organic face mask with 100% natural ingredients of which 70% are organically certified. Contains, among other things, green clay, cold-pressed avocado oil and jojoba oil.
Green clay extracts dirt, dead skin cells and oil from the pores and deeply cleanses the skin.
Cold pressed avocado oil is gentle and moisturizes and protects the skin.
Jojoba oil is soothing and is often used in skin care for oily skin, as it balances sebum production.
Marigold soothes irritated skin.
Lemongrass and mandarin gets the skin in balance.
After a while I saw that oil came out and kind of blackheads pore out the pores on the nose, so heavenly sick! I usually never look at the face mask before washing it off, so I do not know if it will always be like this or if I am extra unclean now. And I can not tell 100% that it is impurities from the pores that have been sucked out (probably thanks to the green clay then) but the mask just looked like that on the nose, where I have the most visible and impure pores, not anywhere else in the whole the face. So do not know what else it would be?
At least now my skin feels absolutely fantastic compared to before! And it hardly takes any time either, as long as you have some benefit to do at home while the face masks work, it is not the case that you go out immediately;)
