✧ Sweet Like Cinnamon ✧

So today's post is a tutorial. Not any kind! This one's for a homemade anti-acne mask! It's a classic.
You'll need: 

  • 3 tablespoon of honey; 
  • 1 tablespoon of cinnamon; 
  • a few squeezes of lemon (optional)

+Michelle Phan made this very short but helpful video:

"Why these ingredients?" 
First of all, honey is the cure to bad acne and especially pimples. It is even able to make acne scars disappear! What a gem... A legend has it that Cleopatra would use it as a moisturizer and it would make her skin glow. 
Secondly, cinnamon is there to bring back blood and oxygen to your face and plump your skin a little. It will help your acne by drying out your skin. Like honey, it has antibacterial effect, too.
Last but not least, the optional ingredient: lemon. Its juice can make scars vanish, too.
Note: Your skin may turn red after this treatment (this depends of what type of skin you have). Don't worry! After thirty minutes, you'll be left with rosy cheeks.
