Before going through with the mask, I did a little research to see what cinnamon and nutmeg did for the skin and here's what I found:
Cinnamon on the skin allows blood and oxygen to come to the surface of the skin and can rid your face and back of acne. Cinnamon masks can irritate skin so it should only be applied once a week.
Nutmeg contains astringent and anti-flammatory properties, allowing it to reduce swelling around clogged pores for smaller pores and smoother scars.
After doing my due diligence, I saw no harm in going through with the actual mask.
HONEY, CINNAMON, AND NUTMEG FACIAL MASK
2 tablespoons Honey (My Mom bought the honey from a farmer's market and it's soooo good)
1 teaspoon Cinnamon
1 teaspoon Nutmeg
Mix ingredients together to create a paste. Before applying to face, test on skin (I did my wrist) to make sure it doesn't irritate the skin. Apply to face and leave on for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, wash with warm water in circular motion for exfoliation. Moisturize.
*As stated earlier, only use this mask once a week.
Having fully completed the mask, I moved on to the lip scrub, which I am so glad I found because my lips have been peeling like crazy and it doesn't matter how much I moisturize them it doesn't seem to stop the peeling. I needed a remedy fast.
HONEY AND BAKING SODA LIP SCRUB
1 teaspoon Honey
1 teaspoon Baking Soda
Mix ingredients together to create a paste. Apply to lips for 5 minutes. Once your 5 minutes are up, rub lips, then rinse lips with warm water. Apply vaseline or cocoa butter for moisture.
I really enjoyed both the mask and the lip scrub. I felt so renewed and rejuvenated and these will definitely be my go-to remedies from now on. I hope you all give it a try as well and let me know how it worked for you.
