Beauty: Cinnamon and nutmeg acne mask

Mask consisting of ground cinnamon, nutmeg and honey is excellent for acne breakouts. In fact, it is probably one of the best masks I’ve tried tinkering in terms of results just after three days of mix, I noticed that my acne has calmed down a lot and the red marks were much reduced. The only drawback is that it is very messy to use as there were a lot of drops!

Nutmeg has anti-inflammatory

I tried to use nutmeg as an ingredient for successfully erase acne scars, but I’ve used it as a spot treatment and never across the face. Nutmeg has anti-inflammatory properties and has been used since ancient times for a variety of skin diseases including eczema and fungal infections. Add it with honey which has advantages and antiseptic concoction is supposed to help clear acne marks over time. It is also supposed to help lighten the skin tone. However, in my experience, the results are not immediate and you must be patient.

Cinnamon is a natural exfoliate

This is another story with added cinnamon. Cinnamon has been used for thousands of years as an antiseptic, astringent aid, antifungal and anti-viral, among many other uses. In addition, cinnamon is an excellent exfoliates and can stimulate the pores, helping other ingredients to work on the skin as well.


Easy recipe

This recipe is very simple. Just mix a teaspoon of ground cinnamon, a teaspoon of nutmeg and ground a teaspoon of honey together in a thick paste. Apply on your face for half an hour, then rinse with warm water. Moisturize normal thereafter. I used to ask emu oil on acne to expedite healing.

Possibility of using lemon

The original version of this recipe is to add lemon to fade spots, but because my skin cannot tolerate the sting of lemon juice, I left this ingredient out. In addition, lemon can cause photosensitivity. Regarding honey, I used natural honey and it worked well to control the outbreak of acne and reduce red marks.

Frequency of use

I used the mask a few days in a row before stopping for a day or two. If you have acne breakouts, it allows them to help calm acne, dry them or at least smooth out the bumps. The mask will help reduce the marks, but do not expect miracles in the short term. It will ease the application, however, continue!

A word of warning

Although this is an excellent home remedy for acne, but this mask is not for everyone. I would not recommend using this option if you have sensitive skin that some ingredients may be too strong for your skin type such. Another point to note is, despite what is recommended, please DO NOT rub or scrub mask with ingredients that will harm your skin! Not also exfoliate your skin during the period you use this mask because it has exfoliating properties and you do not want to aggravate your skin condition. Finally, be prepared for drainage with paper towels or a rag!
