Honey + Cinnamon Powder = Acne Cure

I would like to start by saying that I'm not a doctor, a dermatologist or a beautician. Netiher am I certified nor qualified to give beauty advice.

I just would like to share information about what works for me.

I had quite a serious acne problem when I was growing up. It continued until I was in my twenties - which was quite embarrassing. I tried different treatments and beauty products - from the inexpensive ones to the expensive ones - but none of them worked for me.

Then one day, when I was driving to work, I heard the DJ talking about acne remedy she read somewhere. A simple remedy using honey and cinnamon powder. I had nothing to lose, so I decided to give it a try.

Here's what I did. Mix 1 tablespoon of honey (I use New Zealand honey) with 1.5 teaspoon of cinnamon powder. This mixture should last for about 2 months.

Wash your face with a facial cleanser (whatever you're currently using is fine) and pat your face dry. Then apply a thin layer of the honey-cinnamon mix to your face in the same way you'd put on a facial mask. Leave it on for about 15 minutes and then wash your face. Apply toner and moisturiser.

I did this 3 times a week and as the acne cleared, I reduced the frequency to twice a week. Now I only use it once a week.

How long it would take for your acne to clear would depend on how serious it is now. It took almost 4 months for mine to clear.

For most people, the paste doesn't make their skin feel itchy or cause a burning sensation. If you experience either, it's best to stop using it or consult your doctor.

That's the best acne remedy I came across and the best thing is it cost very little and it's very effective.

Try it at your own risk. If it works for you, let me know by leaving a comment below. Good luck.

How thick it is depends on the type of honey you use. Remember, apply a thin layer.

I used a mixture of honey and cinnnamon as Goldimaz suggested. It has really worked on me. The honey I used is a kenyan honey. I am using it whenever I need it and feels good and is working nicely.

Right now im using a yogurt face mask, I leave it on all night, it has done amazing things. :) Im sure God has inspired me, since I prayed for help and found that. :) But maybe someday I can use this as a backup plan.. :D Thanks!!

I saw this recipe all over the internet. This is the second time I'm using this remedy. I also add in ground nutmeg to the mix to fade the dark marks on my face. The cinnamon burns if you leave it on for too long. 15 minutes should be safe unless you're allergic.

It's slowly working its magic on my face =)


Anonymous 6 years ago

Last night, I tried a honey and cinnamon recipe on the small area of my face where I have had acne for the past several months. I left it on for 15-20 minutes then washed it off. When I looked in the mirror this morning, there was considerable improvement. The pimples were much smaller and less noticeable. I did not have really good honey in the house yet it seemed to work with the pure clover honey that I used. I am happy with the results and will continue to treat the area until clear and use as a spot treatment from now on.

Ashley 6 years ago

Well I didn't use this exact remedy but sugar and cinnamon together mixed with just water and used as a scrub has helped my skin. I used lukewarm water first on my face and put the sugar/cinnamon mixture in my hand and just scrub on my problem area, forehead and cheeks for me and a then a little bit everywhere else. Then I rinse it off and splash my face with very cold water and pat it dry. It helps the acne but also exfoliates the skin. My skin felt better that same day and the next day my pimples were already fading a bit. I do it every other day or so because to much exfoliation can cause irritation.

lauren 6 years ago

I suffer a lot from acne too..so i also thought of giving it a try....i'm abit confused with the mixture should last for about two months....can u please clarify that part....should i have to leave the mimxture for 2 months and then start applying?


Sumil 6 years ago

Lauren, he means that the mixture you make using 1 tablespoon of honey and 1.5 teaspoon of cinnamon powder would last for about 2 months. In other words, you have that much of quantity that you can use it for 2 months! Though it depends on how much you apply everyday.

Good luck :-)

Tazz 6 years ago

Hi, Thanx alot for posting this remedy. I m having bad acne. I just bought pure honey. I will try this remedy today. Hope it gonna work.


Tazz 6 years ago

I have a question from goldiemaz

i have search net and found that the usage of honey and cinnamon powder is recommended to use overnite and to wash face next day with warm water.

So wat do u prefer overnite or just to use it for 15 mins.

My Next question is the other treatment of honey and cinnamone powder has different propotions like 1 tablespoon of cinnamon powder with 3 tablespoon of honey

So wats the correct propotion to use honey with cinnamon powder and do we need to have warm water to wash our face?


goldiemaz profile image

goldiemaz 6 years ago Author

Hi Tazz,

I tried using it overnight but I didn't like it because it's sticky. If you don't mind it, you could leave it on overnight. I found that using it for 15 minutes works well.


Sophie 6 years ago

I have acne all over my back and front ( body pimples ) and my face is also all covered with pimples..i have been using it from the past 2 weeks but i cant see any difference..i leave it on for overnite but yet it doesn't work..i mixed 3 tablespoon of honet + 1 teaspoon of honey as mentioned in most of the websites !! can i know why it did not work ?? though i apply it daily !!


Tanya 6 years ago

I tried it once leaving overnite but my t-shirt n bedsheet got ruined :(

I think applying for 15 mins will work. Now a days am working on sumthing else. It is reccomended to use it for just a week. So will reveal the results after a week :)

krystle 6 years ago

hi thank you for posting... i tried the solution like 20 min ago and it feels like i applied a peeling lotion. it burns. was it suppose to burn? or is it because i was out all day under the sun that's why i had this reaction?


Callie 6 years ago

I used honey and ground cinnamon last night and already I can see a difference,!! I recommend it. :).


Sydni 6 years ago

I mixed honey and ground cinnamon... If I put it all over my face even though I only have acne on a couple spots would it be good for my skin or just stick to putting it on the acne spots?


tat 6 years ago

I've been doing this remedy for about 8 days now and already i can see a difference! I apply it before i go to bed and in the morning for about an hour or so and it's seriously working! My right cheek (problem area) has already cleared up significantly (although i still have brown spots but they seem to be fading) and it's reduced the redness and imflammtion on the rest of my acne so it now looks less "angry." However i do add a squeeze of lemon to reduce my oiliness (I've heard that's affective for oiliness because of the absorbic acid it contains). But I use this combined with my acne regimen as i wouldn't recommend it as a treatment alone. I've also been drinking LOTS of water and exercising daily as well (water and exercise help to detoxify your system which in turn causes the acne to come out). I have moderate acne so i think it does actually work for those with moderate acne but everybody's skin is different and it wouldn't hurt to try it. By doing this along with your regular regimen im sure you'll see results! :)

The honey is great for acne and the cinnamon is good for getting rid of acne scars.

honey will only clog ur pores if it is overprocesed and strained honey, Go for raw honey, which is the best for your face and to eat.

I have no idea why it doesn't seem to be working for you. If you don't mind, try it for a little longer. May be in your case, it takes a bit more time.

Hi regina,

In my experience, it doesn't burn. If you're allergic to honey or cinnamon, it's best not to use it.

I've read several things on honey and cinnamon and I'm totally trying this infact it's on my face right now and I just want to lick it all off! It has this feeling that just clings to your face but in a good way and the aroma of the cinnamon just clears you're head I am hoping that it works because I have school pictures coming up so I hope it dies down!! I'll get back to u tomoorow and see how I like it! :)

Erika 6 years ago

when i was in junior high, i had pimples on my forehead and on my cheeks. my roommate had a really flawless face and she had been using this mixture... i then started using the mixture and in a week, my face was very smooth and it bloomed. my cheeks were pinkish and on pictures my face was really fair.

i stopped using now that i am in college. the pimples came back and im now suffering from really fugly blemishes from both acne and chicken pox marks...and unfortunately, we are going to have our organization pictorial in 3 days. i look like CRAP. i have been using different kinds of lightening cream, but i see no difference at all. so i searched about this in the internet, and found this and remembered this very effective mixture.

soooooo.. im going to use it tonight. and hope that it would lighten my face ready for the picture day :)

wish me luck u guyss :)

Hi,

Thank you everyone for the comments. I'm sorry I can't always reply promptly.

If you skin feels itchy, it's probably best if you stop using it and consult your doctor to see if you have an allergy.

You can store the honey-cinnamon paste at room temperature.


erica 6 years ago

Is it best to use raw local honey, or store-bought clover honey? Also, should I use organic ground cinnamon, or buy cinnamon sticks & ground them myself?


goldiemaz profile image

goldiemaz 6 years ago Author

Hi Erica,

I use New Zealand pure honey. Raw local honey is also good, I guess. I use ground cinnamon. If you don't mind the extra effort grounding the cinnamon yourself, that's probably better.

Also has anyone considered the fact that the reason u have acne is because of your hormones? Masks like this can help externally but 99.9% of the reason u get breakouts is from a hormonal imbalance in your body . Xo

Celeste, I put it on my whole face. I've never used it everyday, so I really don't know. You can try it and see how it turns out.

Benz, the only way to know if it'll work is for her to try it.

I really dig these natural remedies. I have been washing with vinager and sea salt then applying the honey and cinnamon. It really works I don't feel any burning maybe a little tingle. think about it God gave us everything we need in nature why wouldn't it work. Good luck

Ashley 5 years ago

Honey on face does wonders, I have used it for a very long time. Believe it or not you can put it in your hair as well. Makes your hair soft shiny and healhty. You really have to make sure you get the real stuff. Raw honey all the way, as any other "honey" that is not raw has corn syrup in it and is processed in a way that most of the nutritional values are gone... I have been purchasing my honey from www.ecohoney.info great customer service and their product is truly raw! You can taste and see the difference.

Natasha 5 years ago

If all of you would READ carefully, the author does say it took FOUR months for their acne to clear up. FOUR months! Not right away. This is how using natural products work - you have to be diligent and your skin may eventually balance out in a gradual fashion. I have been using a paste of honey and turmeric on my face (will try cinammon next). It's been 15 days and I see a slight improvement. I would have liked to have seen it all gone the next day but as it is, the paste is helping to keep the inflammation down significantly BUT it is not preventing more new spots from appearing right now. They are just less red and visible which is a good thing compared to the huge red/purple bumps I have had on my chin now for a good 6 weeks. I was going to quit doing this when I didn't see anything after Day 3 but I decided to persist and I will keep doing it for a few more months before I decide if it really works or not.


Jyo 5 years ago

Hello Everyone!

I want to share a very strange case of mine... I was troubled with acne till 6 yrs ago. on the advise of my mom I applied honey+cinnamon paste on my face at nites and washed it with lukewarm water in the mornings. the acne and their marks cleared in 2 weeks. I know it sounds unbelievable,but it has been a wonderful experience when people were stunned looking at me after 2 weeks. I cannot begin to tell you the compliments showerd on me!. Well, that was 6 yrs ago... I still have a pimple or two on my face, though not troublesome, I still want a smooth face.2 years back when I applied the same honey+cinnamon paste I got rashes on my face which looked like I had goosebumps all over my face, though it cleared off in an hour, Thankfully. Now I really want to know why the same thing which worked for me to clear my skin some time back ceases to work now?! anyone has an answer, I would love to know. But believe me, honey+cinnamon paste is worth applying. leave it all nite and wash off in the mornings . you WILL see results. just be careful with the bed/pillow sheets!

Cheers.

i tried this remedie for the first time last night I've had moderate acne for a while now and I'm turning 23 this week so im desperate to get rid of it and all the dark marks. i left it on overnight at first it was very weird having the mixture on my face as it is gooey and sticky but it was worth the mess. i woke up and rinsed off the mixture and immediately noticed the difference in the texture of my skin and even my pores appear smaller and a pimple that was forming has been reduced. SO I'm DEFINITELY going to stick with this!!!!


emma, :D 5 years ago

about to try it out now. hope it works :)


Amir 5 years ago

I'm 27 and i had never had acne problem before when i was teen... but since few months ago my skin started getting really bad (I have very oliy skin and i used make up although not oil based ones)

my cheeks and chin was really bad and every day was getting worse to the point that after trying all the antibiotics ,creams and treatments my doctors suggested me to use Accutane....but I've read that this type of medicines can couse a lot of damages to your body so i read some reviews on internet on natural remedies and i decided to try those instead since i didn't have anything to loose.

I tried honey as a remedy for 2 week now, the treatment i use is in the morning wash my face and then use honey as mask for about 30 min and rinse off, then i keep (when i can ) the honey on the spots all day or all night.

my skin didn't change so much in the first week BUT in this second week i'm noticing that my skin is getting a lot better..i'm gonna continue this habit for another 10 weeks at least and see how it goes.but so far i'm very impressed with the results.

I made the paste and ate it in the am and pm, about 2 weeks later and up to this very day, I never had that ulcer again, Im willing to try it for my severe acne also. Its worth a shot.

All of you here: Honey does works wonder, i've never tried cinnamont but I will soon. However!! some of you are saying,all of a suden my face started breaking out. You all shold be watching what you eating, there so many foods that cause breakouts that you would never think of. Like allergies! Oh yea. I had a long way of bad hive on my face before I realize I am allergic to soy. Than I stop soy but I continued with dark cocholate wich is made with soy, and there you go hives again. Take fish oil suplements it will help a lot. Good luck

No lie this does work, I used this remedy years ago and it did clear my face, but I added lemon juice and nutmeg to the mixture, my skin was at its best, I also drank a lot of water it work within a month. My mom and sister complimented me on my skin now I have broken out again cause I stopped using it so now I'm gonna go back to using it


Greta 5 years ago

I use plain low fat yogurt(greek or fage because it is thick), a dab of honey, sprinkle of cinnamon and pinch of ground flax seed. Leave on 15 - 30 minutes.

Dampen hands and pat on face then gently rub for a minute then rinse really well with warm water. My skin has improved (had bad cystic acne) and it feels SO smooth and fresh.

hello...to what i have heard, does it really kill from the root?


Jade 5 years ago

Thanks for providing how to do the mixture. Home remedies like this probably depend on the skin type. But if it worked for you then it's good. What I use is oreganol. With it's antibacterial properties, Oreganol is very good in treating acne.

I used these items to form a mask. 2 parts Honey & 1 part fresh lemon juice. And SMALL almost equal parts of: banana, green tea, honey, olive oil, cinnamon. I combine all ingredients in bowl, mash the banana first. It's ur call on liquids. I waged my face, splashed hot water for 1 min 2 open pores. Applied the honey/lemon mixture, worked in2 my pores, it will sting. NOT for sensitive skin. Then applied my mask, left on for 15-60 mins. Again ur call, wash with hot water, mask will be dry. Then if applying at bedtime, apply 2 parts water & 1 part FRESH lemon juice b4 bed. Then simple rinse & wash. U can do this 2-3 times a week as an astringent, but will dry out face, then do a simple 2 parts oatmeal 1 part honey in morning 2 help moisturize. Again ur call on portions! Not 1 persons skin us the same!!! This is what I recently started using, I have VERY oily skin. So I can handle the mask 3-4 a week, so it's however u see fit! Hope this works for u, if not hope u find 1 that fits UR SKINS needs. ;)

The burning is what helps the acne.

I have some step by steps to add to this if you don't mind. I mixed mine with jojoba oil:

MIX 1/2 TSP CINN W/A MOISTURIZER.

LEAVE ON TWO MINUTES.

WASH OFF THOROUGHLY.

PRESS VERY COLD WASHCLOTH ON FACE.

Keep the washcloth on there until the redness is practically gone. Since the cinnamon heats up your skin, you will get to use the hot/cold method on your face. This combo helps with inflamation. You might see a zit or two liquify and pop on their own.


watever 5 years ago

I just put it on and feels great. i only put it where i needed it. im going into swimming so i really want to clear my face up. Q:- How long do i leave it on? -When will i start seeing a difference? -Do i wash it off with cold or hot water? -Can i do this more than once a day like a normal face wash?

Thanks

Franceska 5 years ago

Im 16 and I have had mild acne before taking birth control and now my face looks like a war zone.... :( but I have been reading all of your comments that you guys posted and I might try this when I get home from work. But just out of your experience.... which works better? Leaving it on for 15-30 minutes, an hour, or overnight? And for the people that say that they leave the mask on overnight, can you use a bandade over the affected area where you put the mask over so it wont go all over the bed sheets or clothing or do u need the affect area to breath? But I will totally use this.... :D Crossing my fingers!!


Erika:) 5 years ago

i'm gonna use this too. Most of the comments seem pretty positive so why not give it a go:) how long does it usually take to see the difference? (i got my fingers crossed too;D)

They use honey in wound care clinics now! The natural honeys help with healing, which is probably why it works so well with acne! Im trying this tonight!!!


Justine 4 years ago

I use this mask quite frequently, and it seriously works wonders on my acne. It's gone down so much in the past few months.

Though I will recommend perhaps adding a teaspoon or more of yogurt to the mixture - yogurt is good for the skin but also honey and cinnamon together seems a bit too thick for me and doesn't apply as nicely as I like; adding a bit of yogurt makes it a bit easier to apply.

But still a great mask :)


komal 4 years ago

i started it just yesterday on the advice of my grnadmother who of course has spotless skin..she suggested me to do this for the pimples scars as i don't have anymore acne problems thanks to no cosmetics and besan flour to wash my face..left it overnight and the very next day i am seeing clear skin..have put it on right now as i am typing..i actually googled to see what nutmeg can do coz my mother confused me that it was nutmeg that my granny suggested..to my surprise i found out that nutmeg also clears your skin..am gonna mix that powder as well from now on..but this cinnamon+honey..defintely works!..:)


Girl 4 years ago

I read that you should only apply this to spots not to whole face. If you apply this to whole face it will make your face very dry! The purpose of this mask is to dry the spots so when used to the whole face, not good! Well of course if you're ready to moisturize your face many many times, you can do what ever you want :)

Wow, I have never thought to try honey and cinnamon. I typically mix honey, sugar, and lime juice for a mask because it is supposed to make skin more vibrant and luminous, but I will definitely try the cinnamon and honey regimen.

tnx 4 D advice...now my face is clear... and rough free.. :) i really love cinnamon & honey


lindsay1090 4 years ago

ADVICE: For those who are not allergic to honey or cinnamon (me) and are wondering why the concoction is burning: your face is not dry enough...I noticed after licking my lips (and some of the honey+cinnamon) it started burning. It also burned like hell when I tried to take my time in washing it off...the rest of my face was dry but i still noticed a very slight burning or tingling sensation...I have somewhat sensitive skin and it didn't really bother me much. This is my first night using it and my boyfriend says i smell like christmas haha... i like it a lot and hope to see some good results soon =]

Is it normal to feel a tingly sensation in your face from the cinnamon? It feels invigorating as opposed to burning. Also, I don't see any burns on my skin or other bad side effects. Just want to know if anyone has experienced the "tingly" sensation as well.

The use of honey as a wound dressing goes back to ancient times and has now been ‘rediscovered’ by modern medicine, according to Dr. Peter Molan of the University of Waikato, New Zealand. “It is a common observation in the many reports in medical journals that numerous benefits result from using honey to dress wounds,” says Dr. Molan. The antibacterial properties of honey may help clear infection in wounds, and the anti-inflammatory action of honey may reduce pain and may improve circulation which hastens the healing process. According to Dr. Molan, “Honey stimulates the re-growth of tissue involved in healing, making healing faster and reducing scarring.”

irena 4 years ago

maybe the people that had breakouts are allergic or they didn't use 100% organic raw honey. honey that isn't organic usually has corn syrup in it and preservatives, which obviously aren't good for your skin. try it with raw honey and see how it goes.


greg 4 years ago

Natural honey is surely better. For people who are allergic, there are other natural treatments out there


Britany 4 years ago

I think that the people who had break outs in the beginning this is normal. just like if your were to use a new face wash and you break out bad at first because that shows that it is working, its pulling all the piples that were under the skin up to clear out your poors, from my experence with using different face washes that was normal.

This honey mask works wonder for me though, i don't normally break out ill maybe have one to two pimple on me at one time, i started using the mask about two weeks ago and my face just looks flawless, its so soft and smooth and i use it every other day before i go to bed. only for about 15 to 20 min because i don't like sleeping in it over night. also if you just have one problem pimple i find honey to work for that as well just put honey on your pimple and place a bandaid over it over night and in the morning its not even noticable or anything if you can still feel its there keep doing it till its gone.

on the other hand my boyfriend has always had really bad acne and he has very bad scaring. his pimple from high school left bad scars and i started using this on him, he also got dry skin every once in a while and after just one week you can really tell the difference and the change it has made. i would strongly recomind this for anyone having problem.(:

I just rinsed it off my face a few minutes ago, and it feels great! Making the paste was amazingly simple and easy--I had everything right in my pantry. I'm keeping it in a small, covered bowl in my bathroom cabinet and plan on using it daily or every-other-day, depending on how it's working. I'll post back in a week or so with results!

(Also, it makes your skin smell GREAT.)

I am 48 and still occasionally plagued by zits that seemingly do not want to come to the surface and had one coming out on my schnoz. I lanced it and it came back.

I have been using honey and cinnamon for 3 nights now and I can definitely see a difference and my pores look tighter after I wash.It definitely works.

~I also use cinnamon with green clay/water for my tendinitis/sports injuries and it's good for arthritis. Apply overnight to painful joints, it's magical. And no risk . Good luck to all.The zit stuff is great !!


Jacob5318 4 years ago

I know Goldiemaz said she uses pure NZ honey for this, and I want to make 2 recommendations:

1. use Manuka Honey (generally only found in NZ)

2. buy it from Airborne Honey.

Why manuka honey? It's proven to be some of the most antibacterial, anti-fungal, anti-viral, anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant honey in the world. Which is why the price is quite high relative to other honeys, but it's worth it!

There are many companies that sell Manuka, and most would be ok, but...

Airborne Honey is the only company that produces their honey without much heat used in the production process (patented technology), which makes their honey the most natural honey you can find of any larger company. Heat kills the natural beneficial enzymes and nutrients in the honey.


jacob5318 4 years ago

I'm currently reading a book called, "The Honey Prescription", which discusses Dr Peter Molan saying Manuka Honey has been demonstrated to kill every bacteria they have tried it on. Amazing natural product :)

I am in mid-30's and have had very severe congestion(clogged pores) , acne, scarring (sometimes I feel as if my skin had a meat tenderizer was used on it!!). I believe that our skin has many impurities that need to be purged, and it wont scare me off if I experience any additional skin issues for the first few times of trying this honey-cinnamon concoction. I will do it nightly....possibly every other night so I don't over do it. I will report back on how it effects my different concerns ( active acne, clogged pores, scarring that's old and recent...some indented and ice-pick type.). I think its very helpful to read specific, detailed healing testimonials!! :)

My mum found this remedy when she had a bad acne rash on her face and it worked wonders for her. She tipped it off to me because as a 14 yr old teen i have been getting a lot of break outs. I tried it out and the next morning my acne was noticeably clearer. I use one and a half teaspoons of cinnamon and a teaspoon of honey and leave it on for 20 mins, so far any honey I have tried has worked. I apply it after I have washed my face with hot water. I also rinse it off with hot water and then once the cinnamon and honey is all off i apply some cold water to close the pores.

When I tried it just for a few seconds, I can't endure the pain, I washed it and I was shocked that my face was red like I have a bad sunburn. I tried washing it again maybe because of the cinnamon but oh no, I was still red, I really panicked but thanks to sunflower oil, my face was less red and I'm praying that I'm back to my normal face again tomorrow.

Kelly 2 years ago

Tried this today, I have struggled with very hard to treat acne for years, my skin is oily but dry as can be at the same time and I get awful breakouts and cystic acne very often. Not many products or remedies that don't irritate my skin or make me break out more. After using this for about 20 minutes there was already improvement. My skin tone is more even and pimples are considerably less red will definitely continue this treatment

Danny 21 months ago

Do NOT use this mask. I tried it yesterday, and woke up this morning with a HUGE rash all over my face. I know it had to be the cinnamon because I've used honey on my face before with no problems. I don't know how long it will take for this rash to go away but I look terrible and I really regret using cinnamon. Please use oats and honey in the mask only. The cinnamon is really harsh, and you run the risk of burning your skin or developing a rash like I did.

For anyone else who may have had the same problem as me, what did you do about the rash and how long did it take for it to go away? Please help, I start school in another week and I don't want my face looking like this. Email me at xoxo_danny@yahoo.com
