DIY Skin Care: Honey Spice Face Mask


| 6/3/2015 3:28:11 PM


It’s easy to avoid the harsh chemicals common in skin-care products when we make our own—many of the nastiest compounds in conventional cosmetics are stabilizers and preservatives. Liz Marie Galvan, from Liz Marie Blog, offers this simple face mask made from edible ingredients. The honey moisturizes and cleanses skin gently. The cinnamon fights breakouts with its antiseptic properties, and the nutmeg sloughs off dead skin cells to reduce blackheads and even out skin tone. If you have sensitive skin, test these ingredients on a small patch of skin before adding them to your mask. If the mask doesn’t irritate your skin, apply once a week.
