Hi, friendsssssssss! I’m SO excited to share this post today, you have no idea. I have been on a cranberry kick for pretty much all of December. I don’t know if you regularly buy cranberries but a little pack goes SO far. I’ve made Candy Cane Shooters, Cranberry Margaritas, and this lovely Cranberry & Honey Face Mask; and I still have cranberries left. I wanted to share a DIY and since we’re so close to Christmas I figured it’d be fun to share something super festive!
Cranberry and honey have so many awesome properties that are awesome for our skin. Cranberries are full of antioxidants, they have soothing properties that can help keep your skin firm and soft. Some people also use cranberry masks to help treat acne. Honey is super moisturizing and helps give our skin a natural glow. There’s also a bit of cinnamon in the mask and when used in moderation is great to help in the treatment of acne and keep your skin looking firm.
This mask is so stinking easy to make that you will want to whip it up on a weekly basis. You’re going to want about a half a cup of cranberries, a teaspoon of cinnamon, and two teaspoons of honey. Put everything into a food processor or a blender.
Once everything is in your food processor, just hit your button and go. If you’re using a blender, use the “puree” cycle to yield the best results. If you’re not getting a smooth enough consistency, I add a tablespoon of warm water to the mixture.
Not only is this mask amazing for your skin, but it’s also pretty to look at which makes it even better, in my opinion. To use it, you can apply it to your face starting from the inside out and rub in a circular motion. Leave it for about 2-3 minutes and then rinse with luke warm water. Find the fountain of youth in this cranberry and honey face mask! Try it out for your next spa-night at home or gift this to a friend for a last minute gift idea. It will keep in the fridge for about a week. Enjoy!
