A few days ago Michelle Phan posted a video about a DIY mask that she loved. I just sighed and thought to myself that I’ve been doing it for years. Recently I’ve been struggling with quite a few blemishes and trouble skin so I decided to try it again. The Cinnamon and honey mask is a great acne-fighter for those who don’t have sensitive skin. I always add a dash of lemon to mine. Honey has antibacterial properties and lemon contains citric acid. Lemon also helps to face blemish marks and hyper-pigmentation.
My skin might be a little too sensitive for this mask, but I see a substantial improvement to my pimples when I use this. it leaves my skin soft and smooth. I wish I could say it left my skin brighter, but that is something I experienced when using this as a teen.
P.S If your face starts itching or burning uncontrollably when wearing this you need to rinse it off IMMEDIATELY. Also make sure that you are using proper honey. Another thing I wouldn’t suggest is microwaving the mixture. I just use it at room temperature.
When I make the paste I make it slightly more runny because the cinnamon burns my skin. I add far more honey than lemon juice and cinnamon. Also, because I love my new camera you can see what it looks like below.I saturate the area around my mouth because that’s my biggest problem area. I suffer from so much hyper pigmentation there and these miniature pimples that really make me self conscious. This mask really does work for me!
