Going natural is always best. When it comes to beauty and keeping your skin clear and problem-free, a DIY facial mask using ingredients you have around your kitchen is definitely your best bet, in more ways than one! This miracle DIY mask, made of nutmeg, honey, and cinnamon is calming and soothing for stressed-out skin. It also happens to smell amazing, which is not always the case with store bought masks often full of chemicals which are tough to disguise.
This simple, yet effective mask can be made by combining only three ingredients: nutmeg, cinnamon, and honey. So how exactly does it work, you ask? Nutmeg and honey act as natural anti-inflammatories, reducing swelling and redness in the skin. They’re also great for soothing acne scars, preventing infection and minimizing future break outs. In addition, the graininess of the nutmeg and cinnamon also work together to exfoliate your skin when you wash the mask off. Easy peasy!
Ingredients and method:
– 1 tsp. ground nutmeg
– 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
– 1 tbsp. pure honey
Combine ingredients together in a small bowl or container, mixing well until it forms a paste. Apply the mask to freshly cleansed skin (the skin must be cleansed and rinsed with luke warm water in order to open up the pores). Leave the mask on your face for 20-30 minutes. Relax… its your spa time! Then, rinse the mask with cool to luke warm (never hot) water while very gently scrubbing in a circular motion. Follow with your favourite moisturizer. Voila! Your skin will be glowing and should feel soft and smooth with less redness.
*Do not use this mask more than three times per week- its all about balance and you don’t want to over do it!
