Homemade Cinnamon Treatment For Pimples

Homemade Cinnamon Treatment For Pimples


I am currently having a bad bout of acne, I have stopped using all kinds of products, but even then, I am having breakouts 🙁 I have been trying topical ointments, but they are making my skin very dry and what’s currently helping me in keeping my acne condition under control and preventing skin from drying out is this recipe – honey and cinnamon face pack. A face treatment for pimples with two very basic ingredients that’s easily available in all households. I think its very essential to describe what these two do to fight acne.


Cinnamon is a wonderful spice that has a wonderful aroma and is used extensively in cooking.  Cinnamon has anti-bacterial properties.  It de-clogs pores.  It helps in drying out acne.  The most important property of cinnamon is that it brings blood and oxygen to the surface of the skin aiding in blood circulation.  Cinnamon can also be used along with olive oil to plump out skin because of its property to bring oxygen and blood to the surface of the skin, so if you want lips like Angeline Jolie….do I need to say more?



Honey is full of goodness and works for every kind of skin type – dry, oily, combination.  It is very moisturizing in nature.  Honey has got anti-bacterial and anti-microbial properties, and also possesses healing power.  Honey contains natural hydrogen peroxide which prevents bacteria.  Honey can draw out impurities from blocked pores and prevent acne.

Both cinnamon and honey are healing and anti-microbial in nature, hence they are the best combination to fight pimples naturally.

Here’s my recipe:

Ingredients Needed:

Honey and Cinnamon Face Pack

  • 2 tablespoons of honey.
  • 1 tablespoon of cinnamon powder (freshly ground).

How To Make:

Grind around 3 to 4 sticks of cinnamon sticks (either coarsely or finely).

Honey and Cinnamon Face Pack 2

I used a mortar and pestle to make the powder, hence there are some coarse granules in there, but these are not a bit abrasive in nature.

Honey and Cinnamon Face Pack 3

Mix in 2 tablespoons of honey into the powder and mix well.  Keep this mixture aside for around 15 minutes so that the properties of honey and cinnamon come out well.

Honey and Cinnamon Face Pack 5

Honey and Cinnamon Face Pack 8

The face pack is ready and before using it on the face, do not forget to do a patch test on a small area on your face.  Since cinnamon has strong compounds that some people may be allergic to do, its mandatory to do a patch test first.

You can use this as a spot treatment or all over the face.  If you are using it as a spot treatment, you can leave it on overnight.  If using as a face pack, keep it on for 30 minutes and wash off.

I hope this remedy helps all those who want to try natural remedies to get rid of pimples 🙂
