Recently, I ran out of honey for my normal DIY facial. I normally mix a tablespoon of honey with a pinch a nutmeg, and a pinch of cinnamon. Both the honey and nutmeg are anti-inflammatory, and the cinnamon and nutmeg exfoliate the skin when you go to wash it off. However, with my new concoction, I can keep the dry, mixed ingredients in a container, and simply moisten a bit when I go to use it. It's also not only softened my skin, but also cleared it up. So, this is my new favorite DIY face scrub:
1/4 cup baking soda
1 tbsp nutmeg
1 tbsp cinnamon
When you go to use it, just take a little bit in your hand (about 1 or 2 tsp of the dry mix). I add a bit of alcohol to kill bacteria in my skin, and enough water to just moisten all of it. Then, just take a bit at a time, and rub on your face. Once your whole face is covered (it's brown, so you can see even when it's thin), simply rinse off with warm water. It makes your face really soft, and blemishes seem to completely go down in just a few hours. It's a lot cheaper than buying face scrub at the store, and works better than anything I've ever gotten before.
