Zap Those Blackheads: The Natural Way

Updated on April 11, 2012

Natural Beauty at its Finest

We often look in the mirror, scoot up close and inspect what we believe our flaws are. If you are anything like me I begin to do research on “miracle creams” and read reviews on products that women just rave about. I will then do a little digging of my own just to find out that these products are so ridiculously expensive, that I quickly log offline and pretend I never even heard about that product. Due to being a college student and high living expenses, I began looking to other methods that would help my beauty issues. To my surprise taking a more natural approach to my beauty routine not only gave me amazing results but eased off my pocket book tremendously. I made it a little more simple, with you in mind, and created a little tutorial to get you going on the right path.

Below I have compiled a tutorial for my cinnamon and honey mask! This will rejuvenate the skin and zap any blackheads. WARNING: If you have sensitive skin I will suggest that you be very cautious, cinnamon is an irritant.

Cinnamon and Honey Mask

Try this handy little mask; it includes about one tablespoon of ground cinnamon and one and a half to two tablespoons of organic honey. I personally whip this mixture, with non metal utensils until completely mixed. I then apply to my face and gently massage the skin in circles, avoiding my eye areas or any sensitive areas on the skin you may have. Its going to tingle a bit, to avoid irritation I continuously gently rub any areas that may sting or itch. After about twenty-minutes, gently remove with a warm cloth and apply jojoba oil generously all over the skin. Any redness should disappear within ten minutes or so after removal of your mask.

What Does This Mask Do?

It literally brings your blood flow and oxygen to the surface of your skin as a reaction to the cinnamon. Cinnamon can help you rid blemishes by drying the skin and exfoliate your dead skin cells off leaving glowing, healthy skin. Honey also has some great benefits; it has natural antioxidant and antimicrobial properties that not only fight bacteria to prevent future breakouts but, also moisturizes and rejuvenates your skin!

What is Jojoba oil and what are its benefits?

Jojoba oil is a botanical extract from the seed of the jojoba tree. This cool thing about this oil is it tricks your skin into thinking that it is the oil your skin releases naturally, so essentially it WILL NOT clog your pores! Just don’t go crazy applying it all over your skin and you shouldn’t have an issue, just the lovely results of fresh, unclogged, moisturized pores.
