When that time of the month comes around, life isn't so easy. Sometimes you'll have mood swings, you typically don't feel well, you have horrible cravings, break outs and just don't feel yourself. Today, I want to share some beauty tips with you that will be useful for that horrible week, because feeling like myself and confident is important to me. 
I'll also be sharing my favorite DIY face mask.

When I'm on my period, my skin gets super dull and I have break outs. Hormonal acne is so hard to deal with, and having dull skin to go with it just isn't ideal. Here's my favorite mask, with the recipe and how to make it, (it's super easy!), to help you get your glowy, beautiful skin back.

First, you'll need an avocado and some honey. Yes, that's literally it.

Cut open the avocado. If you don't know how to do this, grab a knife and cut along the outside of the avocado. You can't cut straight through because of the pit, so you cut around it. Once you've cut all the way around, twist it. It'll pop right open.

Then, remove the pit. To do this, grab your knife and stab it. Not too hard, just hard enough to get the pit out. 

Next, dice is up while it's still in the skin. To do this, grab your knife and cut straight across multiple times, then turn it 90 degrees and do the same. The outcome will be little squares.

Scoop these out with a spoon and into a bowl.

Pour 2 tablespoons of honey into the bowl.

Take your spoon and mash them together until it's a consistency you like.

Then you simply apply it to your face and leave it for 10-15 minutes. Once the time is up, rinse, pat dry and enjoy your hydrated, glowy skin.

Here are some more simple beauty tips to help you to feel more like yourself.

  • Take a long, hot bath. If this is an option for you, I completely recommend it. The hot water will soothe you and will help to relieve your cramps. Using a bath oil or bath salts can be calming as well.
  • Do a face mask. The DIY mask I recommended above is perfect, and you can wear it while you soak in the bath.
  • Mani/Pedi. It's always a good idea to pamper yourself, but even more so this time of the month. It will boost your confidence.
  • Moisturize! I know, if you don't have to leave the house you'll literally want to do nothing. But trust me, even if you're staying in, moisturize your skin! It needs it!
  • Apply light makeup. If you do have to go out, put on some light makeup. It'll give you another little confidence boost. I don't mean you have to do something crazy, just throw on a Tinted moisturizer, mascara and some lip gloss. 
  • Exercise. I know, it doesn't seem like a beauty tip. but it is! It's another confidence booster, it helps relieve cramps and it will boost your mood. 
  • Drink water. Yes, you're probably craving soda, chocolate and anything salty but drink a ton of water. It will help brighten your skin, hydrate you from the inside out and it helps clear up your acne even faster.
Those are my beauty tips to help you feel better while you're on your period.

I grabbed all of these things from Walmart, where you kind find solutions to all of your period needs, so you can get back to feeling like yourself.

  5. Walmart has the best prices on personal products like the Kotex. Now I think I need to pick up some avocado too.

  6. Ugh, breakouts, super-oily skin and very yellow pallor are my companions during that time. I'd eat the avocado instead of using it as a mask though LOL.
