An at-home face mask can be made with ingredients found in your kitchen! This mask made of honey, nutmeg and cinnamon is a special treat that your skin will thank you for.
As someone who deals with sensitive skin, I am hesitant to try new skincare products for fear of having a reaction and breaking out. Because of this, I like to make my own face masks at home, because I know exactly what ingredients are in them and there are no added chemicals.
This particular mask was introduced to me by a friend, and it has become a new favorite that is regularly in my skincare rotation.
The honey is a humectant, an ingredient found in most cleansers that acts as a moisturizer. The nutmeg acts as an anti-inflammatory. The cinnamon prevents acne, eczema and cell turnover, which keeps dead cells from building up on the skin’s surface. The cinnamon does bring the blood to the surface, which causes a tiny bit of a burning sensation – so if you are not a fan of that feeling, you can reduce the amount of cinnamon you put in the mixture.
The mask will not keep well in the refrigerator, so it's best to make a new batch for every application. The ingredients all have a long shelf life, so you get a lot of bang for your buck.
- 1 Tbsp. P$$T…™ Honey
- 1 tsp. P$$T…™ Cinnamon
- 1 tsp. P$$T…™ Nutmeg
- Stir all of the ingredients into a small bowl, and then apply the mask to clean skin. The best time to apply is right after a hot shower, when your pores are more open.
- Let the mask sit for around 20 minutes.
- Wash off with warm water, using circular motions to exfoliate as you remove the mask.
- Moisturize with your favorite moisturizer.
