DIY Anti-Acne Mask

As a runner, skin care needs special attention and could be a daunting task during warmer weather condition. That means increased blemishes or acne from sweats, sun-block lotion, UV light (that’s me!), etc., that clog up pores as well as reducing nourishment on facial skin.

Thankfully, an easy facial mask, which I have been using for about a year, is as simple as 123, helps keep the skin looking lovely and silky soft all summer (make that year) long. Even better, its affordability and ingredients are probably already somewhere in your kitchen cabinets.

As you might already know, honey is the queen of skin care ingredients. It locks moisture inside skin. Its antioxidant properties protect skin against damage from the sun and environments we come in contact with. It fights infection without irritating your skin.

Whereas, cinnamon reduces inflammation, redness, and works to kill acne by drying out the affected area. And lemon exfoliate the affected area while reducing the color of dark spot and scarring.


What you need: 2 tbsp pure honey, 1 tsp cinnamon, and 1 wedge of fresh lemon juice

Combine honey, cinnamon, and lemon juice in a small bowl. Warm (microwave or hot water bath) the honey a little, if needed, to help with stirring. Mix until you get a smooth and uniform paste.

Gently massage the paste with your index and middle fingertips on clean face, avoiding the eye area. Make sure to remove any makeup, moisturizer, sunscreen, etc on face before applying.

Leave the mask on for about 15 – 20 minutes. Careful, the mask might drip. Lick it off if it does. It tastes just like lemon honey tea. Then rinse off. Skin immediately feels smooth and radiate after the rinse off.

With any leftover, pour into a small container and use it up within a week.

This facial mask is perfect for dealing with acne flare-ups. Use it twice or 3 times a week will be sufficient.

Lastly, one lifestyle practice can naturally and proactively hydrate the skin – drink lots of water throughout the day. This goes to everyone.

Have a beautiful day!
