This is just perfect to use if you’re suffering from a break out. I use it all the time and I think that it’s thanks to this magic little potion that I no longer suffer quite so often with flare ups. This is such an easy face mask, it helps keep the skin looking lovely and silky soft all summer long. Even better, it’s super affordable and the ingredients are probably already somewhere in your kitchen cabinets.
As you might already know, honey is the queen of skin care ingredients. It locks moisture inside skin. Its antioxidant properties protect skin against damage from the sun and environments we come in contact with. It fights infection without irritating your skin.
Whereas, cinnamon reduces inflammation, redness, and works to kill acne by drying out the affected area. And lemon exfoliate the affected area while reducing the color of dark spot and scarring.
- 2 tbsp pure honey
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 wedge of Lemon
Combine honey, cinnamon, and lemon juice in a small bowl. Warm the honey a little, if needed, to help with stirring. Mix until you get a smooth paste.
Gently massage the paste with your index and middle fingertips on clean face, avoiding the eye area. Make sure to remove any makeup, moisturizer, sunscreen, etc on face before applying.
Leave the mask on for about 15 – 20 minutes. Then rinse off. Your skin will immediately look more radiant!
With any leftover, pour into a small container and use it up within a week.
