There are a few different options, depending on what sort of results you’re looking for.   To clarify skin: Mix together 1 teaspoon of raw honey, ½ teaspoon of cinnamon and ½ teaspoon of nutmeg. This mask is super good for clearing any blemishes your skin may have, and if used regularly, it can prevent future breakouts. Keep this on for 15 minutes and then rinse with warm water.   READ MORE
