Here's a facial recipe for acne that contains cinnamon, honey and coconut.

A very effective yet calming and safe treatment you can do for acne at home is a two-step process using only three ingredients: raw honey, cinnamon, and coconut oil.

All these ingredients are safe, moisturizing, antibacterial and great for healing problem skin. The cinnamon to honey ratio can be adjusted to what your skin can handle.

The more cinnamon you add, the stronger the treatment. Be careful if you have very sensitive skin, and go easy on the cinnamon.

Directions for Facial:

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons raw honey
Coconut oil, as needed

Mix cinnamon and raw honey together and apply to freshly washed, clean skin. Leave on for 10 – 60 minutes. Wash the mask off in warm water using gentle circular motions to exfoliate.

Pat skin mostly dry and taking a small amount of coconut oil, pat onto damp skin. Use just enough to lightly moisturize.

The honey and cinnamon mix is an exfoliating mask, so it is best to only use it one to three times a week at most to avoid over exfoliation. Be careful using this mask if you have open sores and raw spots on your skin. Either cut way back on the cinnamon amount or wait until the problem areas begin the natural healing process before giving this a try.

Don’t bother wasting time and money on an endless product search before trying your hand at making some of your own healthy skin treatments. Skipping out on the harsh ingredients and sticking to ingredients you know are safe to eat will be safer for your health, and easier on the budget.
