So tonight’s face mask was a concoction for sure!
I had some left over of yesterday’s honey, baking soda, lemon juice mask so I decided to add some to it.
I’m puttsing around the kitchen with my leftover mask lethargically pooling in my handmade pottery bowl I made back in 2008. I am looking at my spices and thinking in my head what items are good for the face and skin. Of course I turn to my trusty nutmeg! I add a dash of nutmeg but keep thinking if this face mask could be so much more. I grab a butter knife and the cinnamon. I get just the end of the knife piled high with cinnamon because I have learned too much can BURN your face! I then add double that amount of turmeric. OK, so these are all items I have used before, let’s try something new! I found dragon green tea, loose leaf on the shelf. This tea was in bigger pieces so I got to use the mortar and pestle! I put about 2 teaspoons in the mix. I mixed it all up, washed my face with warm water and my pineapple enzyme face wash then put on this gooey, sticky, interesting looking and smelling mask. Not too bad so far though 🙂
Oh and the cinnamon isn’t burning my face!
