During my teenage years and going through puberty, my mum had made me try many beauty tricks before I knew skin care and makeup was even a thing. Even now, she tells me I should try this and that. Growing up, I have suffered from very oily and spot prone skin. Instantly, my mum knew what I should try and I did question her but she always had the answer for everything. She’s very knowledgeable and her skin is always nice.
Egg white mask – apply egg whites like a mask.
Mung bean mask – blend mung beans into a paste then apply like a mask.
Oatmeal mask – adding water to oats to form a thick consistency then apply like a mask.
Green tea mask – put left over green tea in the fridge then apply it on cleansed skin at night.
Green tea bag eye cooler – put the brewed green tea bags into the fridge then apply it to the eyes when needed.
Potatoes on spots – slice potatoes into small and thin slices then apply it directly to spots until the slices are dried up.
Olive oil – apply on dry lips or hair.
There’s probably more but these were the main ones I had been testing whilst growing up during my teens.
What beauty tips did you receive whilst growing up?
