‘Tis the season of cranberries. Packed with antioxidants, cranberries are great for your body and your skin. Our featured DIY Cranberry Facial Mask will brighten your skin and bring down any inflammation. The four simple ingredients in this easy do-at-home facial mask have the following benefits:
Cranberries are full of vitamins (C, B6, E, and K) and contain flavonoids and salicylic acid. They enrich the skin and aid in skin cell regeneration.
Plain Yogurt contains lactic acid, an alpha-hydroxy acid, that helps aid in exfoliation by dissolving dead skin cells.
Honey is naturally anti-bacterial, which is great for acne-prone skin. It also acts as a moisturizer and helps to open up pores to get rid of any debris.
Cinnamon stimulates the skin by drawing oxygen, blood, and nutrients to the surface. It is also said to be an anti-fungal, a great astringent, and an antiseptic. All those qualities help to reduce bacteria on the skin’s surface.
