How each ingredient helps:

  • Honey: Honey is a natural moisturizing agent that helps attracts moisture to your skin to prevent dry skin.
  • Cinnamon: Cinnamon helps reduce the bacteria on the surface of the skin and aids in the prevention of blemishes. It also stimulates the skin by drawing blood, oxygen and other nutrients to the surface, revitalizing the skin and leaving you glowing!
  • Nutmeg: Nutmeg helps reduce blemishes while exfoliating the skin and removing blackhead.

    I tried this once but it was slightly different (same ingredients, but slightly different portions), and it kinda burnt my face. I only had it on for about five minutes and I’m not sure if it is supposed to kind of burn, but i hurried and washed it off but I could still feel a burning sensation. So, I’m unsure if that is normal or if maybe my skin is just super sensitive to one of the ingredients?

    Wouldn’t it cause scars from the scrubbing on acne and blackheads?
