honey

I have been using this easy home-made mask for about a year (not daily of course :)) and I have amazing experience with that. You need just 2 ingredients and it smells and tastes (oops) great.

Cinnamon is sweet aromatic spice, one of the oldest spices known to man. It offers anti-clotting and anti-microbial effects. It is beneficial to skin in ground or essential oil form. It brings blood and nutrients to the skin surface, helps to dry skin (thus it’s best suitable for greasy skin). Cinnamon causes minor plumping and swelling, you should avoid eye area (could cause burning).

Honey is naturally antibacterial so it works well for acne. Full of antioxidants (slows down aging), extremely moisturizing and soothing and claryfies the pores – opens them up and unclog them. Isn’t it amazing?

You just combine these two ingredients – honey and cinnamon. About 1 big Tbsp of honey and about 1/2 to 1 flat tsp of cinnamon in a small mug, put the mug into warm water so it melts better and then you can start applying. Your skin should be clean (no makeup on!) and slightly wet. Massage honey mask into your skin, avoid eye and mouth area, exfoliate and leave it on your face for 5-8 minutes. Then rinse with warm water and use oil or essential oil, such as lavender. Use it once or twice a week, you can add 1-2 drops of tea-tree essential oil into the mask.

I have sweet tooth, that’s certain. I love sweet foods, but luckily I crave healthy ones(most of the times,:D). I love fruit, dried fruits, millet porridges, whole-grain or gluten-free cookies or muffins and some raw food creations. I love to enjoy my food so I try to choose something which makes me feel good- now but also LATER,haha(of course sometimes it happens that we overdo things and we lay with bloated belly in bed thinking why we have done that, but that’s the beauty of being human,lol).

banana-cacao

So sometimes we need something satisfying but also quick, delicious and light. I usually have some bananas at home so I used them for this recipe.

Ingredients:

  • ripe banana(s)-use as much as you want, but 1-2 are usually enough
  • 1 Tbsp (raw) tahini per 1 large banana
  • raw cacao nibs( crushed), or you can use powder

Preparation:

Haha this can’t be easier. Peel your banana-slice it or use it whole. Spread your tahini on the top. Sprinkle with cacao. Eat & enjoy.

I absolutely love this recipe, it’s so easy and delicious!
