Honey is one of the best skin beautifier thanks to its amazing moisturizing, bleaching and anti-microbial properties. It is one of the most frequently used natural remedies for acne. Acne can be quite stubborn and if not healed properly can leave behind nasty scars and dark spots. Here is a natural honey mask recipe you could use routinely to treat and prevent acne:
Honey- Honey has great skin softening, anti-inflammatory, pore unclogging and anti-acne properties that helps keep your skin clean and clear.
Nutmeg- Nutmeg has amazing anti-microbial properties that helps dry away blemishes and heal inflamed acne. It also has mild exfoliating properties that unclogs pores and buffs away dead skin layer to reveal a cleaner and clearer skin/complexion.
Tea tree oil- Tea tree oil is a well-known anti-acne remedy that deeply cleanses pores, purifies skin and heals acne effectively without leaving behind scars.
RECIPE FOR HONEY MASK TO GET RID OF ACNE:
Things you need-
- 4 teaspoon raw honey
- 1 teaspoon nutmeg
- 2 drops tea tree oil
In a bowl, add nutmeg. Add in honey and tea tree oil.
Mix everything well and apply an even layer on cleansed skin avoiding area around the eyes.
Let it sit for 15 minutes and wash off. Use the mask every alternate day for best results.
- Always patch test before use. If you are pregnant, always consult your doctor before incorporating any essential oils in your health/skin care/hair care routine.
