There’s nothing we crave more than a dash of spicy heat. But while most people are thinking sriracha sauce and chicken vindaloo, we’re fixated on adding that zing to our skin. Through treatments infused with paprika, nettle or cinnamon, skin can be stimulated with “hot” masques which give a hit of spice to the complexion. These applications leave the skin with a rosy glow as well as an immaculately toned and firm appearance. Plus, using spices on your complexion fits perfectly into an all-natural skin care routine.
