Skin perfecting all natural face mask

Skin perfecting all natural face mask
Makes: 4+ masks


2 tablespoons honey
Juice of half a lemon
2 teaspoons baking soda
5 aspirin tablets- dissolved into a paste
1 tablespoon coconut oil
Dash of cinnamon
1 tablespoon bentonite clay powder

Honey, cinnamon and coconut oil are known for their anti-microbial properties, aspirin and baking soda will draw out impurities, and clay powder has been used for centuries of mud masks for its moisturizing and detoxifying properties. Use lemon juice or apple-cider vinegar as a toner, and you have the perfect face mask. I also add a few aspirin which help to reduce swelling of current break-outs and dries them out quickly.

Place mixture in microwave for 15sec to melt coconut oil. Stir all ingredients well. Should feel warm to touch, not hot. Rub on face and let sit for 30 minutes or so. Because of the lemon juice and baking soda you may feel a slight tingly feeling, but it is enjoyable.

Use a wet warm wash cloth to remove mask, it will be sticky from the honey.

This mask brought any impending pimples to the surface, made my skin smooth and clean feeling, and I love knowing exactly what's in it.

Store remaining face mask in fridge, ad heat when needed. I could use it everyday. It makes your face so soft!
