Off late, I have stopped buying cream/masks for acne treatment, clear skin, and skin nourishment. I use kitchen ingredients to make my own face packs/scrubs and the end result is damn good. I would vouch for the kitchen ingredients or the natural ingredients. They would never let us down. I am oily skinned and out of nowhere, a tiny pimple would bump out on my skin when I wake up in the morning and obviously, I end up with dark spots or marks. Now, having tried a lot with fruits, green tea, oatmeal, I wanted to change the ingredients, to add up more spice 😛 That is why I have picked up the spices for my face pack, to cure pimple marks.
Ingredients that you will need:
- 3-4 cloves.
- 1 cinnamon.
- 1 spoon of honey.
- Blender/mortar and pestle.
Cloves have natural antiseptic properties and are used as astringent in certain cosmetics. Cinnamon is also good at curing acne problems and improves oxygen to skin. It gives a plumping effect.
Step by Step Procedure:
- Take the cloves and cinnamon and crush them in a dry blender. Powder it nicely. I find that the blender gives a very coarse mixture. The best option would be to use a mortar and pestle to get the powdery texture of clove and cinnamon.
- Add drops of honey to the mixture and blend again.
- Mix them until it becomes a paste. Add more clove or cinnamon powder to get the right consistency.
The herbal pack is ready!
Apply it dark spots or on the pimple on your skin and wash off after 20 minutes. Repeat it as often as required depending on the intensity of the dark spots/marks.
I had tried certain packs from a few famous brands that claim to contain clove and heal acne scars, but nothing worked out. This pack, made by me with natural ingredients is showing results and I am happy with it. I am no more spending money on the so-called acne/pimple marks treatment creams and masks, and yeah, the smell is amazing. I just love it.
Chemicals always do not do miracles in bringing the desired results. It is Mother Nature who lends her hand 🙂
Note: Cinnamon may cause irritation on some people. So, do a patch test before you apply it on your face.

Thanx for sharing it dear.. 🙂 I too use cinnamom +nutmeg with honey face pack as its great for oily acne prone skin & ageing skin as well. you are right, Cinnamom plumps up skin there by reducing wrinkles.. 🙂 It really glows face instantly with clear complexion!! Will try to add cloves also as per ur DIY now.. 🙂
thnks neetu..nutmeg,i shud add next time..i got to buy them..
just what I needed Rama… was searching online for some marks-reducing packs… thanks a ton… definitely trying this!
Ritu, this works amzing..I seriosuly stopped all the spot reduction cream and masks..
Ya it is working for me too.ialso disappointed with the commercial products finally my mom told this idea.before grinding you fry in a pan without oil that ensures fine grinding.very little quantity is enough.patch test is a must but it works.
Thanks for the tip lakshmi..probbaly the next time i would fry and den powder it..
I am using clove paste to remove acne scars from my teenage… my mom used to make its paste by rubbing it on griding stone with rose water and it works !! 🙂
Cinnamon adds a little plumping effect..give thata try Sweta.
Is it just for scars? Does it work on active or settling pimples? Looks very interesting and easy! Trying this
Varsha, u may use it on active pimples aswell..but depends on ur skin type..for someppl it may cause mild irritation..so do a patch test before u apply on an active pimple..
Ohh I have tried this pack and let me tell u it’s quite effective and leaves ur skin soft and supple
