Give Your Skin some Summer Spice: DIY Face Mask

June 18 2014

Summer is nearly here, and we all dream of that soft, supple and healthy glowing skin. However, forget moisturisers, endless list of beauty creams and the must-have skin care products of the season – just grab your old spices from the cupboard and have a go at making home-made face masks to give your skin an extra glowing shine this sunshine season!

Raw honey has tons of health benefits including antibacterial agents that heal skin conditions, allergies and wounds. Honey has also been said to be an all-natural alternative for acne treatments, due to its skin purifying qualities and soothing ability towards inflamed skin cells.

Let’s get making…

1.If your honey is in a semi-solid state, which is usually the case, melt it by placing it in a small heat-resistant bowl and putting it in a shallow pan of boiling water (be careful to avoid getting water inside the honey bowl!)

2.Gently stir the honey until it begins to liquefy and when runny, remove bowl from the pan

3.When completely liquefied – mix in ½ teaspoons of cinnamon and nutmeg and continue to stir until a thick paste-like substance is created

4.Leave mixture to cool for a few minutes and when it is not too warm, apply a thin layer to face, avoiding eye areas

5.Leave mask for 10-15 minutes and then wash off with clean water

It’s that easy! And your skin will be left feeling soothed, revitalised and fresh for the summer season! You can also eat any of the mixture leftovers if you have a sweet tooth for honey and nutmeg.
