Skin problems - Home recipes

We all have skin issues, whether it's an occasional pimple or pesky black heads.  Brand-name products for skin care can put a dent in your wallet, but trying these DIY skin recipes are great ways to keep your skin looking amazing without breaking the bank!

The "Miracle" Mask - via
This Miracle mask uses nutmeg, honey, and cinnamon.  Its clams stressed skin and smells amazing!  What makes this mask a miracle?  Well nutmeg and honey act as natural anti-inflammatories.  This helps reduce swelling and redness, and if you have acne scars this helps smooth them out.  For a little exfoliation the nutmeg and cinnamon give your skin a little scrub when you wash it off.  Here's how to create this mask:  

Mix 2 tablespoons of honey with a teaspoon of cinnamon and a teaspoon of nutmeg.The consistency should be like a thick paste. After it’s all mixed, apply the mask to your face and let it sit for 30 minutes. Wash it off with warm water, scrubbing softly in circular motion for exfoliation. 

Now Biore strips are uber expensive, but we all love them!  Here is a home recipe to make your own (let's all jump in joy!)!


  1. Measure 1 Tablespoon of unflavored gelatin into a disposable container {if you put say, green jell-o on your face, there might be trouble}
  2. Add 1-2 Tablespoons of milk into the gelatin
  3. Until it looks like this
  4. Mix it up, and be quick about it, until you get a chunky consistency.  Add more milk if you’re uncomfortable with the amount of chunk.
  5. Microwave the gelatin for about 10-15 seconds.  It will get creamier in the microwave.  Stir that around and start applying it IMMEDIATELY to your face.  This stuff hardens up fast so you’ve got to act fast.
Now add this to the problem spots or if you want your entire face!  Wait about 15 minutes or until the product on your skin feels like it's cracking when you move your face.  Then start peeling (the gross but fun part).
