DIY homemade honey and cinnamon face mask that is quick and easy, with ingredients that you will find in your pantry.
I started using this homemade face mask roughly a year and a half ago. Before that, I had experimented with using store-bought ones and unfortunately had some terrible experiences… like my face felt as if it was melting off type of experiences! Sure as heck I knew I never wanted to feel that again so I started googling ingredients that could be used to make homemade face masks. To be clear I am not nor was I some facial or face cleaning expert! So the whole experience was pretty new and slightly intimidating to me! The first homemade face mask recipes I found had what I thought to be extremely odd ingredients such as raw egg and greek yogurt, I am going, to be honest, it grossed me out and I didn’t want to try them.
Finally, I found a recipe that just called for honey and cinnamon. Perfect! I had both of those ingredients at home and they weren’t weird, haha! So I went with it. I followed a recipe that made a massive amount of the homemade face mask solution! I loved it! It made my skin feel so soft after I washed it off! Not to mention my face didn’t feel as if it was melting off. No crazy burning feelings or pain of any sort! So I kept using it. I then began to formulate my own honey to cinnamon ratio recipe and that is what I am sharing with you all today!
Time needed: 5 minutes.
How to make a homemade honey cinnamon face mask?
- Get a clean jar or container that has a tight lid
TIP- make sure it is easy to clean and not too deep so you can get your fingers in there when it is time to use the mixture
- Grab your honey and cinnamon
- Take out you measuring spoons and a mixing spoon
- Measure out your honey (1/8 teaspoon) & cinnamon (1 Tablespoon)
- Mix up the ingredients until they are blended together and BAM you’re done!
- Pour the honey and cinnamon into the jar
Once you mix up your ingredients get your face ready to put it on! I personally like just wiping my face off with warm water and a cloth really quickly beforehand so I know for sure that I have a clean face for the honey to stick to.
Quickly dry off your face and get ready to grab some stickiness! I like to have everything laid out and ready to go (towel to wipe it off in the end and clear counter space to put my jar) so that once I have honey on my hands I am not fumbling around trying to touch everything.
TIP – do this next step in the washroom to make sure you are close to a sink and extra towels!
To start off first take a small amount of the mixture and put it on your check and begin to spread it out. Once you run out grab a bit more and do it all over again. Repeat this until you have a thin layer of honey/cinnamon on your full face. MAKE SURE you are not putting any near your eyes as it will definitely sting if you get some in them!
Leave the mask on for 10-15 minutes depending on what you get up to while waiting for it!
When you are ready to take it off grab a older cloth that you don’t mind getting stained. Get it wet with some warm water and begin to wipe your face off. The cloth will get sticky quickly so remember to rinse it often!
