So ive been reading about honey and cinnamom face masks...ive been researching natural ways to.help acne and acne scars...has anyone had any luck with facemasks? i tried honey and cinnamon last night on my forehead and nose area and my skin felt do smooth and tighter...tonight i will be exfoliating with brown sugar and almond oil (i did this on my forehead last night too) and then the honey with cinnamon on my lower part of the face..



What Are your thoughts on this? im tired to getting harsh prescription from drs that only strip my skin and make me break out bad...hopefully doing natural things to my face will help.calm things down

I love using honey on my face. I make a mask and put tea tree oil in it and it helps. I don't think this will stop your acne from forming but it definitely helps calm the ones you do have a lot. I have put cinnamon in it too and I'm not sure if it made much of a difference

I've used honey, cinnamon, cloves, matcha, yogurt, and a host of other things on my face. I've found that the beneficial effects are always very temporary, but these kinds of masks are good for next day events.

I believe cinnamon is a known skin irritant so using it regularly may very well make skin red and irritated. Doesn't get very good reviews on here when used topically. It is good for you when ingested.

Why cinnamon? What do you think that does? I think it's an irritant. Try turmeric. That would be beneficial. and yogurt. And honey if you wish.
