Honey & Cinnamon Facial Mask
Honey and cinnamon are truly two of my favorite things! And, I have recently learned that when combined, they are magical for the face. Of course, as any up and coming entrepreneur knows, I was a little behind (alright, maybe a few months behind) on my DVR. I am always looking to learn new things so the Dr. Oz Show is one that is on my list to check daily. After catching up on a few episodes, I have several new tips and tricks I am excited to try. The first... a honey-cinnamon mask! This exfoliation couldn't have come in a more perfect time of need!
-Mix 1.5 tsp of cinnamon with 1 tbsp honey (I used organic raw honey)
-Apply to face in circular motion, leave on 25-30 mins
-Rinse off then use cotton pads or balls with 1 part water/1 part white vinegar
The honey is used for an antibacterial moisturizer and the cinnamon helps to build and repair collagen. White vinegar water will help to tighten and hydrate while taking off the dead skin cells.
I recommend jumping in the shower to be able to completely rid yourself of the very deliciously smelling (and tasting) mask and follow with your normal routine skin care products. My face was instantly softer and smoother! I am working on making this recipe my own by adding a couple things to it next time.
