About the ingredients:
Honey – it has powerful antibacterial properties, cause of the enzymatic production of hydrogen peroxide. Honey also works as a humectant – this means that it attracts and retains moisture to keep your skin firm. People use honey for thousands of years to treat wounds, burns, skin ulcers and inflammations.
Nutmeg – this powerful spice has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. This powerful spice can help to fight eczema. People often use this spice to treat chronic acne and prevent scaring.
Cinnamon – this spice has also powerful antibacterial properties. It can help you cure acne and other skin problems as well. Cinnamon also works as counterirritant – well, it reduces the pain and inflammation (when it’s used topically).
Lemon – this super healthy fruit can help you to even out your skin tone and to fade the sun spots. Lemon is loaded with citric acid, which balances the pH value o the skin and promotes skin peeling. The lemon juice also promotes the regeneration of skin cells. This is why many cosmetic products contain citric acid, especially the anti-aging cosmetic products.
