Honey and Cinnamon Mask for Acne

Honey Cinnamon Mask for Acne
I've already discussed the benefits of using organic honey to treat acne, but recently I've discovered a way to combine honey and cinnamon into a powerful acne treatment mask.  You probably know that honey has natural antibacterial and antimicrobial properties, but few are aware that cinnamon also has strong antimicrobial properties.  Chemicals found in the cinnamon plant fight bacteria and fungi growth, which makes it a great remedy for acne.



Honey Cinnamon Mask for Acne
To make a honey cinnamon mask you will need:

Pure cinnamon powder
Organic honey (preferably Manuka honey)

Mix together 2 tablespoons of honey and 1 tablespoon of cinnamon into a paste.  If the paste seems thin you can add more cinnamon to thicken it so that it sticks to your face without melting off.  Apply the past all over your face using clean fingers or a clean (unused) makeup brush.  *Keep a makeup brush handy just for applying your face masks* Leave the mask on for about half an hour (less if it starts burning) and then rinse with warm water.
