Honey and Cinnamon Face Mask for Acne

Both honey and cinnamon have antiseptic, antibacterial and anti-microbial properties that fight against the acne-causing bacteria and heal the damaged skin. Honey hydrates the skin, preserves its moisture and thus promotes the skin cell renewal. This mask not only clears acne blemishes but also prevents it from forming scars on the skin. Always use raw and organic honey for this mask. Steps to be followed… Add 1 teaspoon of baking soda, 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon powder in 1 tablespoon of organic honey in a bowl. Stir it well till it forms a thick paste and apply it on the face and neck as a mask. Leave it on for about 10 – 15 minutes or more till it dries completely. Then rinse off with water and dry your skin to apply a moisturizer or lotion. Repeat this mask daily to get rid of acne and its symptoms. Note: Alternatively, mix 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon in 2 teaspoons of honey. Spread this paste on all over the face as a mask. Rinse off after 15 – 30 minutes with lukewarm water and dry it to apply toner. Or simply mix freshly extracted lemon juice from a lemon, 1teaspoon of cinnamon powder and 2 tablespoons of pure honey in a bowl. Mix well and apply it on the clean face. Rinse off after 15 – 20 minutes.
