Today I'm coming at you with a quick and easy DIY Face Mask using common household items.
I'm a massive Pinterest fan and I LOVE LOVE LOVE the tips. I recently stumbled upon a cinnamon face mask...yes cinnamon. It never occurred to me that cinnamon had these amazing skin benefits...
- reduces fine lines
- plumbs skin ( especially lips,
Kylie Jenner's secret tbh...I'm only joking..)
- great treatment for Eczema & Acne
- great antiseptic
Now, I only used generic store brand cinnamon, I'm assuming the more organic the cinnamon the better! Let's get to it!
1st Assemble all of your ingredients and add half a table spoon of brown sugar into a bowl
|Add a table spoon of cinnamon...|
|add a good squeeze of honey|
To finish add another good squeeze of fresh lemon juice ( if you have sensitive skin please be careful as lemon juice is quite acidic...you don't want to feel the burn) In fact, this is a good point to mention to be careful when using the mask if you have open wounds or scars on your face. If you regularly pick your spots I'd advise against using this mask, the cinnamon combined with the lemon juice might cause an unpleasant burning sensation.
I usually leave it on for about 5-10 minutes. The things we do in the name of Beauty eh? I'll spare you an image of me in the mask ;)
If you do have a crack at this DIY Mask let me know how you get on.
