Does the cinnamon and honey mask work on hormonal acne?

Nothing works overnight to heal acne. Think of it like a cut with a scab. The scab needs to fall off on its own before the cut is healed completely. The same goes for acne. Use any of the home remedies on this page and in the VisiHow article but you will have to wait at least 5 days before any acne is gone. If you just have a few you should heal properly.

Can cinnamon powder mixed with honey treat acne spot?

Hi, since two months I am suffering with acne spots or black spots on face, suggest me with a good natural remedy. I have tried:

1.Lemon juice

2.Honey mixed with lemon

3.Potato juice. I think it was caused by: 1.Polluted ground water and area too

2.Oily skin


There are several articles posted in an above answer to treat your acne and oily skin. If your water is polluted, boil the water first and you can even add a bit of salt to the water for a sterile saline solution. Because you have oily skin, use a toner after washing your face and before a moisturizer. A good at home toner is green tea when you suffer from acne. Brew a cup and then save it in your refrigerator. Take a cotton ball and dip into the green tea and apply to your face. You can also use a tissue.
