Day 2: Spice Up Your Skin
As your skin ages, not only do wrinkles appear but the fresh dewy look of youth is replaced with dullness and even dry patches.
When combined, the spices cinnamon and nutmeg can soften fine lines and make your skin glow. Nutmeg actually lightens age spots by turning off melanocytes (pigment cells), while cinnamon helps plump skin, filling in fine lines and minor wrinkles.
Nutmeg & Cinnamon Face & Body Wash
To make this inexpensive, skin-rejuvenating wash, take 6 teaspoons each of ground cinnamon and nutmeg and run through your coffee machine’s filter.
