Christmas preparations are connected with a smell of cinnamon, vanilla and chocolate. However, one should not focus entirely on pre-Christmas rush. Relax and appropriate cosmetics can guarantee a nice look during our Christmas meetings with the loved ones. It is good to combine Christmas preparation with the skincare!
Cosmetics with spices fragrant not only care for the skin, but also relax and put in a Christmassy mood. Many of them can be prepared by your own!
Cinnamon, omnipresent during the winter holidays, perfectly stimulates circulation, removes toxins and warms up the body. If you get frozen – you should prepare a tea with ginger and ground cinnamon and for feet - a warming cinnamon bath! One measuring cup of Cinnamon warming salt by FLOSLEK Laboratorium added to hot water, not only warms up the feet, but also helps to relax and have a rest.
On winter days cinnamon face mask is also a great idea. It is recommended for an oily skin, combination skin, with acne, impurities, blackheads and discolorations. It should not be used by people with a sensitive, very dry, atopic skin and capillaries. We apply on the face mask, prepared with cinnamon and honey (1 teaspoon of cinnamon, 1 teaspoon of honey, 1 teaspoon of water), the mask made of cinnamon and mineral water (2 teaspoons of cinnamon and 1 teaspoon of water) can be put on pimples.
Such a mask should be applied in the evening, because the skin is reddened even an hour after washing it off. We put the mask on a face for 10-15 minutes. In this case skin smarting is the natural result of mask properties. If it becomes too strong - wash it down instantly and repeat the treatment after a week.
If you want to even the skin colour - a mask with cinnamon and curcuma can be a perfect solution. Mix 1 teaspoon of curcuma, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon and 2 teaspoons of oil (argan or linseed). If you are using a curcuma mask, wash it off with a gel because curcuma can give your skin a yellow tone. After washing the mask off, apply your favourite cream! The effect of such a treatment would be an even skin colour, a purified and smooth skin.
Vanilla scent improves mood, relaxes, and it has even antidepressant properties. The scent of chocolate stimulates the human brain to produce endorphins, known as the hormones of happiness. Such is the scent of Vanilla & Chocolate Body Butter by FLOSLEK Laboratorium. Thanks to the formula rich in oils (sunflower and babassu), Shea butter and olive oil, the butter gives the skin a velvety softness and it restores an adequate moisture level.
You can prepare a homemade, chocolate mask for your face. Mix 2 heaped tablespoons of cocoa with a tablespoon of honey and a tablespoon of oil (argan oil, linseed oil, olive oil). The paste prepared in this way, should be applied on the face, after 15 minutes it should be washed off with warm water!
