Anti-Acne Face Scrub

For the first time in awhile, I've been battling a little bit of a lot of acne. Over the years, I've definitely broken out from time to time, but the past few weeks I've been breaking out a lot more than ever before. I've been using creams, and they do work, but I wanted to try something a little different, so I took to Pinterest to find a cure. Enter my new favorite face scrub - made with ingredients you have in your pantry right now. 

I found this scrub from this site and they have some other home remedies too - definitely worth a look! All you need to make this face scrub are 3 things - honey, cinnamon, and nutmeg.

2 tbsp honey
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg

First, place 2 tbsp honey into a bowl.

Then, add 1 tsp of cinnamon ...

... and 1 tsp of nutmeg.

Then, mix it all together.

Finally, put the scrub on your face - leave space around your mouth and eyes - and leave on for 30 minutes. 

After 30 minutes, use warm water and rinse the scrub off! You'll find that your skin is a little smoother and now, I haven't had a break out in 3 days! It may not be the prettiest looking scrub, but it definitely works. 

Do you swear by any anti-acne fighting tools? Are you a fan of home remedies or do you prefer the store bought creams? I'd love to hear from you!


P.S. I'm not a dermatologist, nor am I an expert of any kind regarding skincare products. I don't have particularly sensitive skin (most of the time) and my results may be different from yours - this is just something that worked for me. If you want to try this, a good idea is to try some on the back of your hand first, before using it on your face. 



  1. I will have to give this a try! I have tried all sorts of creams but if this works, it sure is a lot cheaper!

  2. I wonder if adding lemon juice would also help with scarring...worth a try
