For all my organic beauty buffs, this post is absolutely for you! Sylvia (one of our fabulous photographers) is sharing her secret for finicky skin – a honey cinnamon mud mask. As a self-proclaimed adult acne sufferer, she swears by this masks ability to clear up junk, moisturizes, and reduce pesky scars. Plus, who doesn’t love a good pamper sesh? See the full recipe below & let us know what you think! – xoxo, LK
– Moisturizing (honey)– Exfoliating (brown sugar)– Getting rid of acne & acne scars (cinnamon!)
Before you raid your cabinets or go out and get the ingredients, I want to explain why these ingredients are the best & why they work so well!
HONEY: I prefer using “all natural, organic, raw, unfiltered” honey vs honey that has been processed but it’s totally fine if you use either/or. I just feel that you get more benefits using raw honey. Make sure that it’s at room temperature (easier to smooth onto face). Sometimes I like to warm it up a bit and stick in the microwave for 6 seconds. It’s a natural humectant which acts as a moisturizer & has antibacterial properties that help spot treat existing pimples.
– Honey (2-3 tbsp)– Brown Sugar (2 tsp)– Cinnamon ( 1-2 tsp)– OPTIONAL – 1-2 drops of Tea Tree Oil
1. Friendly reminder, it’s best to test it on your wrist to make sure your skin responds well.2. Rub it in, in a circular motion, for about 1 minute & let sit for 20-303. This is a great excuse to read, relax, or have a cup of coffee4. Once your timer is up, wash off with warm water in circular motions. Tap face dry with clean towel & check out your glowing new skin!
