If your skin is stressed out, you will begin to notice that it looks tired and maybe even a bit red and puffy. A great way to relax stressed skin and give it a healthier glow is to use a mask that is designed to release stress and reduce swelling. Photo shows Ceara applying the mask!

There is a great DIY miracle mask that takes just a few ingredients and is easy to make.
You just need:
- 2 tablespoons of honey
- 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon of ground nutmeg
Sounds almost like a great holiday recipe, huh? The honey and nutmeg both have anti-inflammatory properties which will reduce redness and swelling and can help to sooth scars from acne. They also help to prevent infection. Cinnamon and nutmeg work together to exfoliate your skin so that it will be smooth and glowing.
Make sure before you use the mask that you are not allergic to any of the ingredients. You can do a patch test to ensure that you have no adverse reactions. To make the mask, just mix the ingredients together until they form a thick paste. Apply the paste to your face using a circular upward motion and allow it to set for at least 30 minutes. Wash your face with warm water and gently scrub in a circular motion while doing so to get the exfoliating effects. Follow up with a moisturizer or whatever you typically use after your beauty masks.
