Cinnamon Honey Mask

Lifestyle December 8, 2015

 

Winter is finally here in LA, even though it was like 70 degrees today.  But with Winter comes drier weather that can damage your pretty little punam.  How do we protect ourselves?  Moisture, moisture, moisture and maybe a little acne prevention.
  Prevention is the name of the game.  That’s why facial masks are so very important.  And even more important is knowing exactly what’s on your face.  Thanx to my bestie, Sasha Sloan-Dizack, I made a super simple, super effective cinnamon honey mask.  It’s exactly like it sounds…

You’ll Need:

1/4 Tbs of cinnamon and 1/8 cup of honey

Cinnamon isn’t just insanely delish in your coffee, try it, it also helps decrease the effects of acne.  Acne is many different things for different people but overall it’s bacterial colonization, swelling, and a breakdown of keratin.  Of course cinnamon does something to combat this horrible affliction we all know so well.  Specifically, it acts as an antibacterial, an anti-inflammatory (reduces swelling), and is an antioxidant (yay electrons!).  Thus helping your skin stay health.

Then there is honey, my favorite beauty product.  It’s an antibacterial and heals wounds pretty well, it boosts your natural glow, and it’s also an antioxidant which helps your skin look young forever dahhhling!

  Mix them together…

  Put on a cute robe you don’t mind covering in cinnamon honey.  It will get EVERYWHERE!  Be ready.  My rug will never be the same.  I left the mask on for about 15 minutes.

Then I moisturized with my favorite facial cream, Gentry + Hicks.  I’m a little biased, this is my product.  It’s natural and insanely moisturizing!

Then live your life and continue with your day!!! I want to hear all about your process, maybe you even have some tips for me.
