I get at least 2 nodular or cystic acne before my menstruation every time... and when I had spicy and junk food for more than a day and also when I have not removed my make up before going to bed…otherwise my skin is behaving little well these days.. Touch wood... this time as usual just before few days of a grand party I had a red bump exactly on the tip of my nose and cyst on my chin...eeyokess... ..
And I woke up at 2 am and did an impulsive diy
Voila it actually worked wonders
The ratio should be 2:2:1
Initially I simply mixed 2-3 pinches of cinnamon powder and added a bit of honey exactly equals to cinnamon powder to make a paste...then I added 2-3 drops of lemon juice.
I left it over night... next morning redness was almost gone...and then I repeated the application at least 3 times a day... and my bumps were reduces to half by evening…
I had home made cinnamon powder from cinnamon sticks and an organic honey.
You can simply grind cinnamon in a grinder... it will be little gritty but will be really effective.
It will tingle in the start, may burn for a while, especially if honey is not good enough and lemon is more... so do add a proper amount of honey. You can also wash it after 20 minutes and it can be used as a face mask as well... It will make skin glow. Results will be a brighter clearer skin.
It acts as an inflammatory on the skin and increases blood circulation. It reduces acne and also helps in reducing acne scars.
Why honey: You know honey is actually my favorite ingredients when it comes to Diy...honey helps in healing inflammation on skin because it is a natural moisturizer, an anti bacterial and a humectants. Honey cleanses skin deeply
Lemon: is always good for acne scarring also act as a spot remover...it helps in reducing acne/bumps/cysts by killing bacteria.
Since it has lemon I wouldn't suggest to use it regularly .If you are using it as a spot treatment use it till the time you have acne and otherwise once or twice a week because lemon is photosensitive
Hope you like it!
