Cinnamon Exfoliating Face Mask Recipe
Age-Defying Cinnamon & Honey Face Mask
I love home remedies! This easy recipe uses only three ingredients and is very effective at removing dead skin cells, moistening and tightening.
It’s also great for acne and eczema as both cinnamon and honey are natural anti-inflammatories and antiseptics.
1 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
1 Tbls Honey
1 part Apple Cider Vinegar and 1 part water (a few Tbls of each)
- Step 1 – Combine cinnamon and honey to make a paste, and apply to entire face and neck and gently exfoliate into the skin.
- Step 2 – Take a selfie 🙂
- Step 3 – Leave on for 30 minutes, and then remove with warm water and a washcloth.
- Step 4 – Using a cotton ball or pad, swipe the vinegar mixture over your face and neck to tone and tighten.
Soft, smooth, moisturized skin with a more even skin tone. Use this mask weekly for best anti-aging results and to fight acne.
