Make your own bronzer! DIY special


                 I'm so excited to share this with you guys!! This is a great way to save money, not to mention its great for your skin! Cinnamon is used in many skin treatments! Cinnamon and petroleum jelly can be used to sooth itchy skin and acne. Cinnamon also causes a plumping action with the skin due the minor swelling it causes which can help diminish wrinkles. Cinnamon has been used in lip glosses to help plup lips and make them look fuller. With that said, here's how you do it!! 

Your going to need 
 *1/2 tsp of ground nutmeg 
 *1/2 tsp of ground cinnamon
 *1/2 tsp of cocoa powder 

Mix the three together in a small bowl. If you are looking for a darker bronzer add more cocoa powder to get your desired darkness. 

I used an empty makeup compact to put my bronzer in. 

Add a small amount of alcohol (70%)just enough to turn powder mixture into a paste. Spread evenly in the compact, and leave to dry overnight! 

It's as simple as that!! :) I hope you all give this a try. I'd love to hear from you if you do!
