DIY Mask For Exhausted, Stressed Skin

Was it just me or did the holidays FLY by this year? The whirlwind of wrapping paper and family coming in and out has left me exhausted. And when that happens, I get sick. It happens every year.

So to combat that, I did two things: the first was to head to Sam's Club and get stocked up on supplies.

Sam's Club is the health and wellness destination for everything you need, whether it's free health screenings, otc meds (I like stocking up on my vitamin C), or the Pharmacy. You've got the convenience of shopping while your prescription is being filled. For more info on Sam's Club pharmacy, click here.

And the second thing I did was make my favorite DIY facial mask. If you've got stressed skin, if you're exhausted, do yourself a favor and make this. And if you're staying up late for New Year's Eve, you'll definitely want this the next morning. Trust me. PLUS, it's a great way to use up those leftover ingredients from the holidays. Here's how to make it:

You'll Need--

  • 1/4 c plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 c pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 tsp raw honey
  • sealable container (I used a glass bowl)
  • spoon
Look at that drizzling honey!

I got all of the ingredients I needed at Sam's Club. Speaking of that, they have an online Healthy Living Made Simple Magazine. One of the articles that stuck out to me was on the benefits of pumpkin. Pumpkins are full of good things, like vitamins A, C, and zinc. Pumpkins are wonderful for skin that is inflamed.

To make this mask, all you have to do is pour the ingredients into the bowl and mix them well. 

Apply it to your skin and leave for around 20 minutes. Rinse away and pat dry. This is what it looks like after 20 minutes on the face. It feels so cooling and relaxing.

So what else makes this mask a must-make?
The Greek yogurt soothes, hydrates, and gently exfoliates skin, thanks to the lactic acid. The honey works well on inflamed skin. The honey is antibacterial, an antiseptic, and provides moisture.

I love keeping this in the fridge for up to a week. It feels amazing when it is chilled. You can also freeze it for up to 3 months, or just freeze the pumpkin for up to a year, so you can make it anytime.

Still not sold on this mask? I urge you to try this mask on just half of your skin. You'll be able to tell a difference! Here's to a happy and healthy new year!

  25. Speaking from experience, raw honey does amazing things on it's own too. (; Not sure if you've ever tried that.

  26. This sounds like a nice mask. I think I have pumpkin puree but not honey and greek yogurt. I will have to remember to grab these next time I am food shopping.
