Here is how to make a honey and cinnamon face mask to treat acne
Making a honey and cinnamon face mask
Follow these steps carefully and properly to create a honey and cinnamon face mask for you.
- Take a small bowl and mix a teaspoon of cinnamon with 2 tablespoons of honey in it
- Mix the mixture until cinnamon completely blends into the honey
- Apply this mixture on your face.
- Keep applying it until you get an even coverage of your face with the honey and cinnamon mask
- Leave it on for about 10-15 minutes
- Now rinse your face with lukewarm water
Repeat the process for about 2 times a week. If your skin is sensitive, cinnamon might irritate it. Hence, do not repeat the process for more than 2 times a week. If any sort of irritation occurs, rinse your face immediately with fresh water.
If you want a stronger face mask, you can consider adding a teaspoon of nutmeg to the honey and cinnamon mixture. Mix it thoroughly until you get a fine and even mixture. Apply this mixture on your face until you get an even coverage of your face.
Leave the mask on for about 10-15 minutes. Finally, rinse your face with warm water. This honey, cinnamon, and nutmeg mask are quite effective for soothing burns, acne scars, redness, and swollen places.
