I’m the kind of girl that loves natural remedies for everything. If I have a headache I’d rather just take a nap instead of taking an aspirin or put a hot rubber water bottle on my tummy when it’s that time of the month.
Last week my skin looked so horrible. I had blackheads and pimples all over my forehead and cheeks. I was freaking out because I’ve never had this before. I didn’t want to start picking my face because I didn’t want to have scars. I tried the toothpaste trick which didn’t work and only ended up drying out my skin. So I decided to make a homemade honeymask.
You only need two ingredients to make this: honey & nutmeg.
The reason I chose honey as an ingredient is because it acts as natural antibiotic which kills bacteria-causing acne. It prevents bacteria growth and has anti-inflammatory properties. It reduces breakouts, redness, soothes the pain, prevents new acne formation and removes excess oil.
Nutmeg reduces the sight of pimples and also has anti-inflammatory properties. It heals scars, has anti-viral and anti-bacterial properties, decreases the chances of having an infection, clogged pores and is great for oil-control if you have oily skin like me.
The recipe is simple. Take equal parts of your ingredients put it on a plate or in a bowl and mix them together until it forms a paste. Apply this on your clean face and let it do its magic for 30 min to an hour. Rinse off with lukewarm water. That’s it!
Ps: You can also use this as a scrub to cleanse your skin.
I do this twice a day or at least once a day before I go to bed. I already noticed a lot improvement after two days. The redness was gone, the pimples and blackheads didn’t hurt anymore, were very minimal and after day 5 they were completely gone.
This is the best remedy I’ve tried so far.
