Lately my skin has been in desperate need of some extra attention. I don’t know if its because of the weather, the way I am eating (Apple pie anyone?), or just coincidences, but it needed something. My skin is pretty sensitive so I try to keep my skincare as natural as possible. I am also terrified of all the hidden chemicals in skincare and makeup! Had you ever heard about parabens before they became a no-no? Me neither. I bet there are more no-no’s in there somewhere, we just don’t know about them yet. Sound crazy? Well, I just think there has to be another way, and here it is!
After Pinteresting for a while, wait, is that a verb yet? Anyways, after perusing Pinterest for natural homemade facial masks, I learned that apparently Cinnamon is the best natural pore extractor/cleanser. Who knew? I then found this simple DIY facial mask that consists of Honey and Cinnamon. Yepp, that’s it! Honey for moisture and Cinnamon for pore exfoliating. I have been using it twice a week for a good month now, and I can really tell a difference. Unfortunately I didn’t do any before after shots, but I did make a 1-2-3 guide on how you can make your own!
3. Put it on your face, leave your eyes alone and play on your phone for about 15 minutes. Cleanse off and do a couple of circular movements around your own pore clusters (chin, nose, forehead). Dry off and put on a gentle calming moisturizer. I love this one from Trader Joe’s! It’s simple, has SPF, affordable and my esthetician approved it :) Win!
Disclaimer: You will turn red for about 30 minutes after the mask so don’t do this right before the annual ball!
Give it a try and let me know how you like it?
Until next time, Hadet på Badet!
