I just found out about an old Indian recipe that has been passed from generation to generation.
This natural remedy is very effective and it is said that gets rid of spots overnight.
If you try this face mask, let me know what you think and how it worked for you.
How To Make The Face Mask
The key ingredients for this facial mask are honey and cinnamon.
However, it is preferred that these two should be as natural as possible when used.
Honey is one of the healthiest natural foods and it can be used to increase the energy level and to enhance the immune system.
It is great to treat colds, burns and various wounds, but also to prepare dermato-cosmetics face masks.
Did you know that to raise 500g of honey, bees must visit 2 million flowers?
It is amazing, right? 🙂
This sweet ingredient was highly appreciated by Cleopatra which used to frequently bathe in milk and honey.
Milk acids nourish dry skin, while the enzymes in honey make your complexion soft.
This natural product has beneficial effects in fighting acne.
Honey has good antibacterial properties and contributes to disinfect the skin. It also reduces and heals red spots.
Acne skin should be cleansed both in the morning and evening with an anti acne soap or lotion and the cosmetics used must be for oily tendency complexions and be based on water.
The benefits of cinnamon are also highly acknowledged since antiquity. The effects of cinnamon were considered so precious that were worth more than gold.
It used to be used not only as a condiment and preservative, but also as a medicine for colds or digestive problems.
Nowadays cinnamon is a spice used mainly to give a special flavor to the sweets that we make or bake.
Although many people don’t know just how beneficial cinnamon can be outside the kitchen.
Here are some interesting facts about cinnamon:

Besides the medicinal properties, cinnamon offers numerous advantages in terms of body care too.
No wonder, it is used as an ingredient in some cosmetics as: soaps, body lotions, moisturizers, perfumes, shower gels.
Here are a few reasons for using cinnamon in your beauty care routine:
- It’s a remarkable natural scrub
- Gets rid of wrinkles
- It stimulates hair growth.
You will need:
- 3 TBSP honey

- Put the honey into a bowl and add the cinnamon powder to create a paste consistency.
- Apply the mixture just on your spots in a thin layer and leave it for a few hours (at least 1-2 hours) before going to bed at night.

I recommend you apply this face mask every night until you reach the desired effect.
With a bit of patience you will see big improvements on your complexion.
