Okay, this mask is absolutely great! It smells fantastic, it only uses three simple household ingredients and it works immediately. How does this mask work? Well, the honey works as an antibacterial and reduces redness, the cinnamon shrinks the size of pores, and the nutmeg minimizes swelling and inflammation. To be completely honest, I was a little skeptical while putting on this mask! But when I rinsed it off and saw how much better my skin looked, I knew this recipe had to be posted to Instructables! =D
Follow these steps to have almost flawlessly smooth skin!
**** Please don't use this mask if you are allergic to honey, cinnamon, or nutmeg!****
Step 1: Gather Ingredients!
2 Tablespoons of Honey
1 1/2 Teaspoons of Cinnamon
1 Teaspoon of Nutmeg
Other items you will need:
1 Small Towel, headband (you will need this if your hair is long), face wash or soap (depending on your skin type), 1 bowl (to store everything in), an empty spot in the fridge, and a spoon.
Step 2: 2 Tablespoons of Honey
* Quick Fix- if the honey is a little too thick and won't come out of the bottle, pop the entire bottle into the microwave for 20 seconds. But be careful to watch it in the microwave, as honey melts fast!
Step 3: 1 1/2 Teaspoons of Cinnamon
Step 4: 1 Teaspoon of Nutmeg
Step 5: Checking Your Mixture
Step 6: Wash Your Face
Step 7: Apply the Mask
****If you have long hair or bangs, be sure to pin it back!!! This mask is super sticky and is extremely hard to wash out of hair!****
Step 8: Relax for 30 Minutes
While waiting you can clean up your mess, finish up homework, or just listen to music. =>
Step 9: Rinse
Step 10: Pat Dry
Another great thing about this mask is that it leaves a little bit of a cinnamon scent on your skin for a while!
Step 11: Store Mask
If this mask dried your skin out, dab a little bit of moisturizing cream on your dry spots. You finished!
