The girls have EXTREMELY sensitive skin, and battling the ever present dry skin on their cheeks especially during the harsh Chicago winter months is no small chore. The other day we decided to treat ourselves and have bit of fun as well by making face masks! I will usually do a mask once every other week or so and Lyla is always asking to do one too, but I never felt comfortable with putting anything other than aloe vera “mask” on her. Sienna wants to do everything her big sister does after a little investigative googling we headed into our fridge and pantry to make their yogurt + coco powder masks.
They were so excited while we mixed! We used the same coco powder that I use to make hot coco but didn’t add any sugar to it. Although now that I’m thinking about it the sugar could have been an exfoliant…..maybe next time.
The girls had fun. It’s not everyday that I risk the white walls by letting them get dirty inside the house. The one constructive criticism from them was that it didn’t taste good.
I knew I should have added sugar!
Needless to say a bath immediately followed this activity!
