D.I.Y. Face Mask

Hey dolls!

I wanted to share a new face mask with you all that I have been swearing by! This is a super easy three step mask ( that smells like heaven ) that helps fight breakouts! So for this D.I.Y. you will literally only need three things, all of which you probably have lying around your home. What you will need :

2 Tablespoons of Nutmeg

2 Tablespoons of Honey

1 Tablespoon of Milk

Leave on for minimum of 10 - 15 minutes

Here's how to make it :

Step 1:

First gather your ingredients, and make sure you have a few napkins handy because just like any D.I.Y. face mask it can get kinda sticky.

Step 2 :

Get your 1 Tablespoon of milk, easy enough right? Now lets talk about the benefits of milk and why you should put it on your face! So milk contains lactic acid in it which is great for a non abrasive exfoliation of the face. Milk also will help to hydrate, smooth and alleviate redness.

Step 3 :

Next get 2 tablespoons of nutmeg. This is what makes this mask smell like a cozy home at Christmas time, no joke its kind of amazing. Nutmeg is also the main ingredient in this mask that helps fight breakouts, and combat acne. How so? Well nutmeg has anti-inflammatory properties in it that help fight off acne, and also curative properties which can help lighten scars / sunspots.

Step 4 :

Honey! This recipe calls for 2 Tablespoons ( Dats alottt of honey ) for good reason! The nectar, honey and resin from flowers can be anti aging, help to moisturize and fight off bacteria. Also it helps unclog pores, and since its so moisturizing it helps give your skin a beautiful glow!

Step 5 -

Put it on ya faceee! Simple as that! Just mix all of the ingredients together, creating a slightly watery paste.. and apply! I also have to add that I am currently still in pure after mask bliss considering I literally just did this mask before writing this and my skin feels heavenly!! I am always skeptical of facial masks, skin care, etc. because I never see instant results. ( sad face ) But with this mask I FEEL the results. Its like it makes your skin feel so awake and soft. Plus when you start to rinse it off ( with warm water of course ) the nutmeg turns it into an exfoliator and helps get rid of any dry patches. So all in all this mask was to bomb not to share with you all. Hope you enjoyed, and make sure to leave me any of your fav D.I.Y.'s down in the comments.
