Vaseline Overnight Face Mask

Ok. So I know it sounds absolutely crazy, but last night I put Vaseline on my cheeks. I actually did.

Throughout most of yesterday I was getting frustrated with my skin. The t-zone was looking bumpy again; serves me right for changing my routine, after I had found the perfect one! But I just had to try out this new facial wash that I made, after which my skin was dramatically dried out, bad bad plan to use anything with the word saponified in it.

And, as you may well know, when my skin dries out, it acts out. So, I had my first spot in two weeks appearing on my chin, and a whole bunch of bumps on my forehead, and significantly dried out cheeks. So,my first thought was Sudocream, which I popped on my t-zone.

Yet, I felt a bit funny about leaving out my cheeks, especially as they were so dry. Vaseline came to mind, because one of my good friends is addicted to the stuff, she puts it everywhere. So, I thought, why not give it a try. So I spread it all over my cheeks.

Just to be sure that it didn't just go all over my pillow, but actually went into my face, I promptly tied my hair up as high as I could and as securely as poss.

I managed to fall asleep laying on my back, rather than sideways...I must have been super tired, as that hasn't happened in forever.

And this morning, I woke up to more even looking skin. Actually. Truly.

Petroleum jelly is my knew favorite find for an overnight face mask. It is a barrier like Sudocrem, so it will enable the skin to work its own magic. Hey well, I am going to try this again sometime. Why don't you have a go, and tell me what you think!

I reckon its about time I stopped trying new products, then my face my settle down, and RELAX.
