Nutmeg Face Mask

Positives: Good treatment for acne-prone skin: calming, antibacterial, reducing inflammation and appearance of spots.

Negatives: Very sticky and difficult to rinse off!

Ingredients: Cinnamon, Honey, Nutmeg

Preparation Time: Less than 1 minute to mix. I also let it sit (15 minutes) for some time, or warm it a bit before applying.

Preparation Method: Mix grounded nutmeg, cinnamon and honey together.

Application Method: 15-25 minutes. Wash it off very gently - I would suggest not to rub it in, the paste is rough.

This is a good facial mask for acne-prone skin. I used it when I had a breakout and it really helped calming the skin and reducing the appearance of spots. The drawback is the removal of the paste: it is super sticky and rough. While some like the idea of strong exfoliating effect, I would not recommend rubbing your face with this paste (or any other exfoliator; use fruit acid exfoliators instead). Just gently pat your face with water and let the paste slowly melt. Use once per week.
