An at-home face mask can be made with ingredients found in your kitchen! This mask made of honey, nutmeg and cinnamon is a special treat that your skin will thank you for.

As someone who deals with sensitive skin, I am hesitant to try new skincare products for fear of having a reaction and breaking out. Because of this, I like to make my own face masks at home, because I know exactly what ingredients are in them and there are no added chemicals.

This particular mask was introduced to me by a friend, and it has become a new favorite that is regularly in my skincare rotation.

The honey is a humectant, an ingredient found in most cleansers that acts as a moisturizer. The nutmeg acts as an anti-inflammatory. The cinnamon prevents acne, eczema and cell turnover, which keeps dead cells from building up on the skin’s surface. The cinnamon does bring the blood to the surface, which causes a tiny bit of a burning sensation – so if you are not a fan of that feeling, you can reduce the amount of cinnamon you put in the mixture.

The mask will not keep well in the refrigerator, so it's best to make a new batch for every application. The ingredients all have a long shelf life, so you get a lot of bang for your buck.

Ingredients:

  • 1 Tbsp. P$$T…™ Honey
  • 1 tsp. P$$T…™ Cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. P$$T…™ Nutmeg 

Directions:

  1. Stir all of the ingredients into a small bowl, and then apply the mask to clean skin. The best time to apply is right after a hot shower, when your pores are more open.
  2. Let the mask sit for around 20 minutes.
  3. Wash off with warm water, using circular motions to exfoliate as you remove the mask.
  4. Moisturize with your favorite moisturizer.
