If you’re searching for a DIY mask that removes hyperpigmentation and brightens the skin, look no more. This homemade mask dries out pimples, lightens pigmentation and you will see results after the first use.
Hey guys, the combination of milk and yeast is the best, in my opinion, for dealing with hyperpigmentation. I tried it for the first time when I was a teenager and I forgot about it until yesterday.
In addition to reducing pigmentation scars, it can also remove freckles, shrink pores, dry pimples and even out the skin‘s complexion.
To make the mask you need:
Yeast (active, dry or fresh)
Milk (preferably cow‘s milk but you can substitute with oat milk although the effect wouldn‘t be the same)
Clay (you can use any type you have)
Why does the combination of these ingredients work so well on the skin? Let’s find out.
Baker’s yeast contains a large number of amino acids, B vitamins, and minerals. It acts as an enzyme peeling agent. The yeast moisturizes the skin and stimulates collagen production. Because of its powerful ingredients, it can reduce fine lines and wrinkles and even out the skin tone.
Milk contains lactic acids that are used in cosmetics and are called alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs). The acid removes the top layer of dead cells, whitens pigmentation spots and keeps the skin looking fresh.
Clay is a great remedy for pimples; it cleans out the pores and dries acne. It also regulates the production of oils and gives the skin a youthful appearance.
For the recipe gather:
Two tablespoons of yeast
Two and a half tablespoons of milk
1 tablespoon of clay
Mix the ingredients and apply on the face, avoiding the eye area. After 15 minutes, rinse well and moisturize your skin with your favorite face cream.
Use up to 3 times a week and preferably in the evening so that you are not exposed to the sun directly after using the mask. The mask contains natural whitening agents that increase the risk of skin sensitivity, so make sure to always use sunscreen.
Skin pigmentation can damage your self-esteem. It’s not enough that you’ve been struggling with acne, but it dares to leave behind an awful trace that takes months to heal.
I remember an incident that happened a few years ago. Up until then, I had no red marks only pimples, but my acne changed for normal teenage acne to cystic acne.
Because of my dermatillomania I kept torturing my skin and that left me with big red scars on my cheeks which subsequently became pitted scars.
They were so red that nothing could hide them completely, so I would use my hair to hide half of my face.
I used to work with children for a while and I was helping a girl with her homework when unexpectedly, she said, Ms. What are those red things on your face while pointing at my cheeks. I froze and felt myself sink into the ground filled with shame. I always tried to hide my acne and one of my biggest fears was that someone would comment on it publicly.
Before I can answer, another girl said “Do your homework and stop asking questions. She looked at me and smiled. I am still grateful to this day.
Today’s self-love exercise will focus on one affirmation. I am comfortable in my skin.
Consider whether you’re really comfortable in your skin. Do you go out without makeup? And if so, do you constantly think that someone is looking at your skin? What feelings overwhelm you when you think about your skin?
Write them down on a piece of paper and please be extremely honest with your answers. When you’re done with the negative things, start crossing them out one by one and write down their positive equivalent. Do it for all of them and feel how you delete that negative thought and replace it with the positive.
After that repeat a few times this powerful affirmation “I am comfortable in my skin”. You can write it down or stick it somewhere you can see and read it often.
I know it’s hard, but make an effort in the next days to shift your focus towards the positive qualities of your skin. If you feel overwhelmed with negative emotions keep saying No. I am comfortable in my skin. And let faith transform your life. If you keep your faith high soon you will see positive results physically and mentally as well.
Share what you think of the mask and today’s self-love exercise in the comments. I want to hear your opinions.
Thank you again for reading my posts and for being with me. You are more beautiful than you think. Have a nice day and until next time.
