I like posting non-bookish stuff a lot, as you well know, and I thought it’d be fun to post some DIY beauty/crafty/other assorted things that I like to do. Sometimes, such as with something beauty related, there might be a wait time so I read while I’m waiting. Sometimes I might listen to an audiobook while I do a craft or something like that. Sometimes there is no wait time but I’m going to post it anyways. haha. So, it will be multitasking for me and multitasking for YOU — you’ll get a book recommendation and a little something else right in one post.
So here we go…
I’m a DIY face/hair recipe collector. I am always trying new ones. Sometimes you just need a little pick-me-up during the middle of the week but don’t want to make a huge mess or do one with a TON of ingredients and steps — I leave those ones for the weekend. This one I did tonight was perfect for what I needed.
My face has been super irritated lately so I wanted to find a mask that would calm my face down so maybe it would STOP acting like I’m 16 again. I had seen this Honey, Cinnamon & Nutmeg all over Pinterest and decided to try it because it looked super simple and I had all the ingredients on hand.
*NOTE: I am no esthetican or beauty guru by any means. I just find lots of DIY mask recipes, learn about the ingredients & their benefits and then try them. *
– 2 tablespoons of honey: Honey has a whole lot of good benefits for your skin. This was the post that helped me learn about honey.
– 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
– 1 teaspoon of nutmeg
My read: Stella Bain by Anita Shreve — check it out if you like historical fiction!
After the 30 minutes, rinse off your face with warm water. I put moisturizer on after just to lock in the moisture. I had a decent amount leftover so I don’t know if it just makes too much or if I didn’t use enough. It was super easy and my skin felt really good afterwards! ALSO, it smells amazing!!
I got this particular mask recipe from this blog.
What are your favorite DIY face masks? I want to try them! I used to buy them years ago but they were SUPER expensive so I’m definitely wanting to expand my arsenal of face masks!
