It's been a week since I picked at the zit on my forehead, here onwards we shall call him Jake, and the wound's healed nicely.
I continued with the turmeric-honey-cinnamon mask for 3 days total and started applying BP on Jake by the 3rd day. 4th day saw the Jake wound dry up, and make-up application was better.
Overall, the natural mask might have helped lessen wound infection, though I really cannot tell, as I think my Jakes take the same time to heal. But what I did notice was it helped improve my skin texture, you can definitely feel it after washing the mask off, so all good.
