Honey and Cinnamon Mask or Spot Treatment
This is an age old remedy that has been used in Ayurvedic medicine for hundreds of years to cure a wide variety of ailments. Honey and cinnamon both contain anti-microbial properties, preventing the growth of bacterial and fungi.

 Honey is an anti-inflammatory that will reduce redness, and cinnamon will improve blood circulation for faster healing. Regular use of this treatment as a mask (2-3 times a week) will help to reduce chronic acne and improve overall skin tone. This can also be used as an overnight spot treatment when pimples threaten to rear their ugly heads.

What you need:  
1 tablespoon honey (raw organic honey retains more of its natural properties than processed honey), 
1 teaspoon cinnamon powder, one small bowl

How to use it:  Wash and dry your face with your regular cleanser, then smear the mixture over your entire face or apply it only to problem areas. Leave on for 20 minutes, then rinse and moisturize as usual. (Can be left on overnight if you can stand the stickiness.)
