Honey has a lot of skin benefits! Especially for those fighting acne. It has antibacterial properties which is excellent for removing those pimple causing bacteria. It also helps in fading acne scars left behind. Another wonderful thing about honey is that it’s so mild, not many (if any) find it harsh on their skin.
Cinnamon, a spice known for the yummy flavor it adds to our pastries and cooking, is also excellent for our skin. It acts as a natural astringent, helping to shrink pores. And in case you didn’t know, reducing the appearance of pores makes your skin smoother. It also has anti-aging and skin lightening properties. So, if you’re looking to clear blemishes and fade acne scars, cinnamon should really be part of your skin care routine.

You will need:

Mix this together till completely combined and allow to fully absorb for 10-15 mins. Wash it off and notice your skin noticeable glow. Don’t forget to moisturize after
Because of how mild honey and cinnamon are, you could get away with using this every day. Although, I use it every other day. Skipping some weeks.
Ensure you’re using pure honey and cinnamon. By pure cinnamon I mean the actual stuff not the those dumbed down one for baking and cooking. Natural honey is a lot thicker than refined, it also shouldn’t attract ants.
