Often, the facial treatments done to remove pimples and acne can leave marks like dark spots and scars. Good thing that there is a natural mask that will clean your face without leaving any traces.
The following mask helps in cases of uneven or problematic complexion, stains or spots on the face due to acne and pimples, and wrinkles. With regular use, this mask will amaze you.
This mask will smooth the skin and remove any discoloration.
You will need:
- 1 teaspoon honey
- 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
Start by mixing everything until a paste is formed. In cases of sensitive skin, dilute or omit the lemon and a little more honey to the mixture.
The honey will widen the blood vessels in the skin, so this mask is not recommended for people who suffer from telangiectasia’s, rosacea and other vascular skin diseases. In this case, replace the honey with white or green clay. The mixture is stirred in the same proportion with the other ingredients of the mask, and diluted with water to the desired texture.
Once the mask is done, apply it by avoiding the areas around the eyes and mouth. Leave it on for 30 minutes, or at least 10 minutes if you cannot stand the burning sensation. At the end, rinse with warm water and apply the cream you usually use. Note that you should not use this mask to exfoliate the skin.
