DIY Blueberry Facial Wash

I noticed that my skin seems to be breaking out more than usual  (post-period effects); hence I decided to make my own Blueberry Facial Wash. Blueberries are loaded with antioxidants. They help with blotchy skin and acne problems.  Who knew almond milk is filled with nutrients including vitamin E to help maintain a well balanced look. Hold off on those Vitamin E creams, almond milk has a high level of it. You can have restored skin and reverse the effects of sun damage in just seconds with this DIY facial. Can’t forget the cinnamon! It fights acne, blemishes, and leaves your skin with a glowing youthful complexion. Rice is great for those summer days when you get sunburn. It helps to cool your skin off for flawless skin.

All of the ingredients are beneficial for your skin. Hold off on buying those expensive creams, and make a simple recipe using only 4 ingredients. If you have any extra facial wash, refrigerate it. I recommend using it within 2 days for the best skin results.

What you’ll need:

Method:

Pour ingredients into a nutibullet and blend until desired consistency.

Christa Alexis makeup of the day

My makeup for the day was a combination of dark eye shadow colors with a black eyeliner on top and bottom. I decided to wear lighter vibrant colors on my cold shoulder shirt paired with white jeans to really make my makeup pop.

Apply light eye shadow and then a darker shimmer shade on top. You can apply the pencil eyeliner after you put on the eye shadows. Repeat until you get the desired look.

Next, apply the eyeliner on bottom and mascara. I put my liquid foundation I like to check the ingredients and make sure they are organic. Apply to face and rub in thoroughly.  You’re almost done. Just add your simmer on your cheeks.

Walk out of your place feeling fabulous. Christa Alexis here! xo

I’d recommend washing your face first and then applying a few small drops to your face. It’s currently their best seller and I see why. I can’t wait to try more of Innisfree’s products!
