Anti Acne Honey Mask
Cinnamon and honey combined prove valuable allies against these imperfections that ruin our lives. First, honey whose reputation is well established has been recognized for thousands of years for its anti-bacterial and healing properties. This makes it a prime ingredient in the fight against the damage caused by micro-cysts. And in addition to prevent and cure infections, it is also a very good moisturizer.
As for cinnamon, it has also famous disinfectant and anti-bacterial properties. Cinnamon stimulates blood flow, that is to say, it brings blood and oxygen to the surface of the skin. In other words, it will act on the general condition of the skin along with the buttons. The result: skin less blurred, brighter, plumper, and pores cleared of bacteria.
- 1 teaspoon and a half of honey
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon of almond powder, Sugar or baking food are also good exfoliating agents, but I find them less gentle to the skin.
It could not be simpler: all the ingredients are mixed in a container until a “dough” homogeneous vaguely resembling melted chocolate. However, if the texture is too thick, cut it with a little water.
Once the mask is ready, apply it to the entire face using a foundation brush. Let it lay between 15 and 30 minutes decent minimum to act on your buttons. During the rinse (with warm water in the shower), make light circular movements to exfoliate the skin.
Perform this treatment on average 2-3 times per month, but not more than once per week for not attacking your skin more than necessary.
Here are few precautions
Make sure you are not allergic to cinnamon. Take a test in advance (on your wrist for example) to see if you do not develop adverse skin reaction.
Avoid the eye area. Basic recommendation but we never repeat enough.
