Ok, so I have really acne prone skin and it was driving me crazy for the longest time! No matter what I did I would still get breakouts. This mask has really helped to clear up my skin even after I found a face wash that I considered to be ‘working’. Another plus is it uses all natural ingredients! So here it is,
1/2 tsp Honey
1/2 tsp Cinnamon
1/2 tsp Nutmeg
Lemon Juice (from a real lemon) You really need a very tiny amount of this, maybe fill up half of the 1/2 teaspoon measurement from the other ingredients. If you put too much it will be hard to spread on your face!
I know this seems like a really small amount but it covers your face! Leave it on for 20-30 mins and then wash off with warm water, i needed a washcloth to help get some off. Your face might be a little pink after you take it off from the cinnamon! Definitely don’t do this every day and I would start with once a week and go from there! The mask can also be done without the lemon and it will be very sticky but I added the lemon to help get rid of some of the scars on my face!
Here’s why it helps:
Honey is a great natural anti bacterial and moisturizer
Cinnamon helps to dry out acne and stimulates the pores to help the mask work better
Nutmeg is an anti inflammatory
Lemon helps to lighten scars, heal acne and also exfoliates
Here is what mine looked like (I used too much lemon in this batch! See how it doesn’t cover well? )
