1/2 tsp Nutmeg powder
1 tsp Lemon juice
1/2 tsp Cinnamon powder
1 tsp Honey
Method of Preparation:
In a small bowl, combine all the ingredients thoroughly into a dark brown paste. Prep your face by first washing it with lukewarm water.
Further on, apply the pack all over your face particularly on the affected areas in a thick coat. Allow it to dry for about 20 minutes. In the initial couple of minutes you might feel an itching, tingling sensation, that is because of the acidity from the lemon which is a natural bleach and cleanser.
Those with sensitive skin can skip lemon from the recipe. Do this every alternate day at home for 2 weeks, and you will have a spot-free complexion.
Honey is a natural moisturiser and helps nourish the skin. Nutmeg’s anti-inflammatory properties reduce the chances of acne, while its stimulating properties stave off dead skin cells and reveal a clearer skin. Further on, its antibacterial and anti-fungal qualities open up clogged pores by regulating excess oil secretion. On the other hand, cinnamon in the face mask has anti-microbial properties that cuts chances of infection, and is rich in antioxidant which makes the skin retain its healthy, natural glow.
