Anti-acne Honey and Cinnamon mask



Dear Acne,

Consider this mask my anti-Valentine.
Please don't be mine.



No love,
Leslie




Once again, I was inspired by beauty guru Michelle Phan. (To watch her video, click here.)  She made a warm mask made from honey and cinnamon that I had to try.  Apparently honey has antibacterial properties and cinnamon stops bacterial growth... so I thought this mask would help get rid of my stubborn acne.  (Boo bad skin!)

Ingredients:
- 3 T honey
- 1 T cinnamon

Directions:
1.  Mix honey and cinnamon together.

2.  Place mixture in the microwave for 20 seconds.  When warmed, it resembles melted chocolate.

3.  Use a pastry brush to paint it on your face.  (Or, just dab it on with your fingers.)  Wait 10 minutes.  (Watch out!  The mixture will drip.)  Rinse it off.  (Note:  Don't rub your face too much while you rinse. Otherwise the cinnamon scratches you quite a bit.)

Does it work?  Well, it's now been a week since I've tried the mask and sadly I haven't seen much improvement.   Boo!  However, I did enjoy trying the mask out.  It felt lovely and warm on my face, so I felt like I was having a spa experience right at home.

Have a great Monday!

  2. Hi, I'm using honey. Why should you use honey for acne treatment? Because, honey is an ancient remedy with strong antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic and antioxidant properties. It’s been used for centuries as a most popular home remedy for any kind of wounds and ulcers. Cheers!~ Wayne Williams
