So I know it’s been a while since I last posted and the reason for this is because there’s been a few things happen in my personal life recently which have occupied some of my time, but I’m back and hopefully with some interesting posts.
So recently I have been suffering from horrific acne and I couldn’t figure out what was causing the sudden flare up until after some experimenting found out that this was my M.A.C Studio Fix Fluid Foundation. So I immediately stopped using it and moved on to my good old Revlon Colorstay foundation. I was left with some really awful cystic acne of the side of my cheeks and I was on a mission to get rid of them!
So I came across Manuka Honey, Cinnamon and Nutmeg face mask through Pinterest and I was so desperate that I was willing to try anything and I am so glad that I did. I have quickly listed short facts known about the ingredients below.
1. Manuka Honey – 2 Tsps
|Sainsbury’s Manuka Honey 10+ 340G – £9.99|
3. Ground Cinnamon – 1/2 Tsp
- Manuka Honey has properties that contain anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory and the ability to aid in healing and repair damaged skin.
- Cinnamon has anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties and it also brings blood and oxygen to the surface on the skin and unclogs the pores.
- Nutmeg is also anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial and also dries out pimples.
Mix all the ingredients in a clean container to form a thick consistency (thick enough where it won’t slide down your face). Now I have to stress this point, this is not an over night cure! This took about 4 weeks to clear my skin up and this involved using this mask every single day. It was a strict regime that involved no other products, if you feel that you need to use your standard spot treatments as well then go for it.
I found that the mask was drawing the acne to the surface so I could extract (EWWWW) the gunk inside. Once that was done the every day use of the mask helped heal the spots quicker and helped clear up the scarring as well.
Even though my acne it completely gone, I still use the mask everyday. I find that my skin is amazingly soft, the softest it’s been in a long time. It is time consuming and you won’t see results straight away but what I love about this mask is that it’s natural, chemical free and not as harsh as other spot treatments.
So ladies give it a go and let me know the results!
