I have been so proactive (and even used that product lol) in trying to clear up my skin. I have tried EVERYTHING! No lie, everything. It’s scary how much money I’ve spent on products, treatments, and tools. SCARY!
In my hunt to discover an acne miracle, I researched some ways to decrease the signs of acne scarring. I have been using this mask* twice a week for a couple of weeks now and I can definitely see some relief on my face (and my self- confidence is coming back too, FINALLY!). This mask is jam packed with anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal, and anti-viral components, as well as an astringent. So I wanted to share this with you in case you’ve got similar issues going on (though I hope for your sake that you don’t; in fact I hope NO ONE has to use this mask because that would mean you’re not suffering from adult acne like me. It’s just a terrible thing y’all!).
In the evening, after you’ve removed your makeup and cleansed your face, apply this mask and let it sit for 20-30 minutes before washing off and applying your toners/moisturizers. There is NO need to scrub this mask off; be gentle with your skin.
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp honey
a few drops to 2 tbs lemon juice (see note below)
The vitamin C from the lemon juice is the active ingredient helpful in decreasing the scarring from acne. However, you want to be careful if you’ve got sensitive skin. I would recommend starting with just a few drops of lemon juice first and then gradually increase to your comfort level. Some people have reported a burning sensation with the lemon juice, I have not had this issue because I have not put a ton of it on my face. I have very gently and slowly increased the amount of lemon juice that I have used. The first time I tried the mask, my face was a little pink for about 25 minutes after I removed the mask, but it didn’t hurt and it faded quickly.
No, you will not get a picture of me wearing this mask; I doubt if my self-confidence will ever be that high lol
Tips for me that you’ve found?!?!?!
