Men, About Face!
No, seriously, this is about your face. Society has put pressure on men when it comes to our masculinity; however, that does not mean society can control what we put on our face.
The Honey Serenity Mask
2 Tablespoons of Pure Honey, 1 Teaspoon of Cinnamon, 1 Wedge of Fresh Lemon
Warm honey in the microwave for a few seconds, then combine it with the cinnamon and the juice of a lemon wedge into a small bowl until the combined ingredients form a paste; apply the mixture to your face and massage for 5-10 minutes. Rinse off the remaining paste.
Honey is enriched with antioxidant properties, preserves skin against sun damage and environments that is harmful to our skin.. Whereas, the cinnamon diminishes redness, inflammation and works agains acne flare-ups. And lemon is the exfoliator, while reducing dark spots–plus, it eliminates excess oil when applied topically.
The Hydrating Avocado Mask
1/2 Ripe Avocado, 1 Teaspoon Plain Organic Yogurt, 1 Teaspoon of Honey
With a fork, mash the avocado until softened–assuming you prefer not to purée–then mix in the teaspoon of yogurt and honey until it manifests itself into a paste. Apply the combined ingredients to your face and leave on for 10-15 minutes.
Avocado performs as a skin moisturizer; consider an avocado as your own manufactured youth serum (a very thick one); softening and hydrating your skin.
Yogurt contains lactic acid, which will break down dry skin; tighten and minimize your pores (men tend to have larger pores than women). Apply this mask for anti-aging benefits.
