Reduce Sun Damage – DIY Cinnamon Honey Lemon Mask Review

Hi all,

I have been trying a number of different Sephora masks lately but have recently turned to DIY masks as they are so popular on social media. The following is my favourite mask, that have surpassed even retail masks I have tried, from Taz’s Angels Beauty Bar instagram:

-1 tsp Cinnamon

-Juice of Lemon Wedge (1/8 of a lemon)

  1. Combine all ingredients in a bowl and apply to face with either a brush or fingers.
  2. Leave on for 15-20 minutes, then wash off.
  3. Can be used 2-3 times a week.

Benefits of this Mask

Honey: locks in moisture/ helps reduce and prevent sun damage

Cinnamon: Reduces redness, inflammation and prevents acne

Lemon: helps reduce the look of scarring and dark spots

Benefits I Have Seen

Greatly reduced sun damage: I had some large dark spots under eyes after a trip which were not going away. After using the mask even the first time I was finally seeing my skin returning to normal.

Super smooth skin that lasts: my skin was super soft to the touch and felt soft for days after

Skin smelled nice: even my boyfriend noticed my face had a nice subtle scent of honey and cinnamon for hours after, like a natural perfume

Acne reduced: my skin was perfect for days after and some impending imperfections I noticed cleared up much quicker
