I mentioned in a previous post that I’m all about using raw honey as a face wash. I absolutely love what honey has done for my skin: clearing up breakouts, evening out my complexion, and even slowly fading scars that I’ve had for years. Well last night I decided to pamper myself with a mask made from what else? Honey!
I mixed 2 tsp of honey with 1 tsp of cinnamon and 1 tsp of nutmeg until it was a brown, gooey consistency. This made just enough for one application, so I didn’t have to worry about storing any leftovers. I smoothed it all over my face using the teaspoon I mixed it up with as an applicator. Just like with any other mask, I avoided the sensitive skin under the eyes.
This stuff tingles quite a bit. I don’t mind the tingling…personally, I think that the tingling let’s you know it’s working. I kept it on for 30 minutes. When I washed it off, the difference was clear (no pun intended). My skin looked brighter and my pores looked so much smaller. No joke I was seriously glowing. Even today I’ve gotten compliments on how refreshed I look.
When I think about all the chemicals I’ve doused my face in over the years, I can’t help but cringe. I’m always willing to be the natural skincare guinea pig, so if you have any other awesome DIY masks you want me to try, just comment below. I’ll let you know if my face falls off, or if it’s safe for you to try 🙂
