And with this all-natural facemask, you’ll find that you have all kinds of solutions for your skin care woes in your kitchen pantry! So close your wallets, and open your kitchen cabinets for these great natural facemasks.
Acne & Scarring
For acne and scarring, we recommend a honey, cinnamon and nutmeg facemask. The reason why this mask is so great is because honey is a natural moisturizing agent, while cinnamon works as an antiseptic that aids in reducing bacteria and pimples. The nutmeg acts as an exfoliant and also works to reduce blackheads. Mix these ingredients and apply for 20 mins then rinse. If you feel a burning sensation upon application, rinse after 5 mins.
If you have an oily complexion, then you should definitely try this treatment. A combination of
baking soda, lemon and honey is sure to keep those facial oils at bay. The baking soda gets dirt and
grime as well as unclogs your pores, while the lemon acts a disinfectant, killing off any bacteria.
Mix these ingredients; apply for 20 mins and rinse.
