The Fiery Face Mask For Amazing Skin. Ever bit into a habanero pepper, chewed for a second and figured, “oh, I must have the tougher than the average palate, ’cause this isn’t so bad?”
Then, 2 seconds later your tender pink mouth explodes into an inferno of searing agony? Then, the strangled yelp? This face mask is kind of like that. You are likely thinking that this is possibly the worst sales pitch you’ve ever heard.
Well, 1) I’m not selling it, it’s just ingredients from your cupboard and 2) I’d rather have you prepare for the Big Burn and 3) it works really well! It’s especially good on acne scarring, sun spots and fine lines.
The Fiery Face Mask For Amazing Skin
This comes from the apparently twisted mind of Abby over at My Yellow Sandbox–here’s her recipe:
The Fiery Face Mask
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp honey
2-ish tsp lemon juice. (I used the juice from 1/4 of a lemon)
Mix together into a thick paste. Apply on your face for half an hour… or ten minutes if you can’t handle the burn! It’ll only burn for the first five minutes or so and then it sort of wears off. Rinse the mask off with warm water and moisturize. NOTE: If you have sensitive skin leave out or dilute the lemon. I’m serious. I call it the burning mask for a reason! This is a mask and not to be used to exfoliate your skin. It’ll hurt. Promise. Don’t do it! If you leave out the lemon just use enough honey to make it paste-y. I used the creamy honey so I had to nuke it in the microwave for a few seconds to get the right consistency. You’re just going for a paste though, so don’t worry if the measurements are all off.
