Anti-acne Honey and Cinnamon mask
Consider this mask my anti-Valentine.
Please don't be mine.
Once again, I was inspired by beauty guru Michelle Phan. (To watch her video, click here.) She made a warm mask made from honey and cinnamon that I had to try. Apparently honey has antibacterial properties and cinnamon stops bacterial growth... so I thought this mask would help get rid of my stubborn acne. (Boo bad skin!)
- 3 T honey
- 1 T cinnamon
1. Mix honey and cinnamon together.
2. Place mixture in the microwave for 20 seconds. When warmed, it resembles melted chocolate.
3. Use a pastry brush to paint it on your face. (Or, just dab it on with your fingers.) Wait 10 minutes. (Watch out! The mixture will drip.) Rinse it off. (Note: Don't rub your face too much while you rinse. Otherwise the cinnamon scratches you quite a bit.)
Does it work? Well, it's now been a week since I've tried the mask and sadly I haven't seen much improvement. Boo! However, I did enjoy trying the mask out. It felt lovely and warm on my face, so I felt like I was having a spa experience right at home.
Have a great Monday!
