CINNAMON and HONEY FACE MASK for ACNE FREE & GLOWING SKIN
As with honey, medical literature has shown that cinnamon has potentially anti-microbial, anti-parasitic, anti-oxidant, and anti-inflammatory benefits in animals and it may have wound-healing properties. There are a lot of people that have claimed that using a cinnamon and honey based mask has helped them fight off acne, however, more studies are needed to prove this in humans. Besides cinnamon and honey, I am adding a bit of lemon juice to this face mask. Lemon contains vitamin C which is one of the main active principles in cosmetics for fighting skin ageing. Using lemon on your skin may assist to naturally increase collagen in your face and prevent free radicals that damage collagen. Collagen is a protein that decreases in age causing face lines and wrinkles.
Prep Time: 2 min
1 tsp of cinnamon
1 tsp of fresh lemon juice
1 tbsp of honey
Note: If you have runny honey, use 1/2 tsp of olive oil. If you have crystalised, then use 1 tsp. This is for easy application and consistency.
In a bowl, add all the ingredients and mix well.
Apply on face using fingers and leave for 20 to 60 mins.
Remove with a wet cloth.
