Is it good to use honey and cinnamon for acne scars?

Don't think so

Acne
Once you have scars from acne, there is no potion that will make them better. The remedy you mentioned MAY help in keeping acne from getting worse. For scar treatment you need a dermatologist or a plastic surgeon who will tell you if they can help. Good luck from NYC

I am 18 & black african & was wondering what gets rid of dark acne marks on your face naturally? Ive tried honey and cinnamon so far.

Postinflammatory hyp

Pimples
The first and most important thing is that you rid yourself of the acne which is causing these spots. This can be done in many ways and your dermatologist will help you. If the acne is stopped, and the spots are left alone and not picked-at, they usually do go away with enough time. Above all, it is most important to get the advice of your dermatologist.

Does the cinnamon mask for acne really work? I was thinking about trying this mask. I wanna know if any of you people tried this. does it really clear up acne?

Get a real Rx

Acne-vulgaris
There are dozens of weird, obviously made-up fantasy acne treatments. I suspect some of them are simply cruel pranks. If you want to try this, do it as an adjunct to evidence-based treatment. Benzoyl peroxide is your first-line therapy; if this isn't sufficient, get with your personal physician. All acne can be managed. Best wishes.

Will honey face masks really cure acne and scarring?

Acne Scars

Scars
Acne scars that are scalloped or ice-pick in appearance will not be cured by the honey face mask. These types of scars are permanent. Scar revision is aimed at smoothing the contour of the scar. You will still have a scar but it should be less noticeable or more easily covered by make-up.

I heard use manuka honey as a mask can speed up healing process and possibly kill acne bacteria?

Forgive my frankness

Severe_acne
Whoever told you that "natural is better" did you a profound disservice. Painting your face with honey isn't suitable for a grown man when all acne can be managed by today's scientific Rx. If topical benzoyl peroxide hasn't cleared you in two weeks, get with your physician; a trial of topical clindamycin / retinoic acid or a move straight to oral tetracycine or even stronger WILL work.

Dr. Ed Friedlander answered:

Can eating honey cause acne?

No

Acne
The one link that has shown some consistency in studies is that for some people, dairy products exacerbate acne. Giving this up would be a hardship for me. I was surprised to find that chocolate has been exonerated. Most important is that you know that all acne is manageable with today's methods. If topical benzoyl peroxide for two weeks has not cleared you, get with your personal physician.

Can honey treat acne?

You can try

Pimples
Or vinegar or tea-tree oil or anything else. If you're responsible for a young person's physical and emotional health, you have a duty to provide something that works for a serious disease that's likely to disfigure the kid. It's not lifestyle or hygiene related. If benzoyl peroxide fails, get Junior to a scientific physician.

Which type of honey is best for acne?

Adjunct only

Acne
I'm really sorry that your acne isn't being managed scientifically. The best over-the-counter remedy is benzoyl peroxide. If this fails, you need to be under a physician's care. If someone is telling you that acne is your fault or that "natural remedies are the best", you have my sympathy. Phone your physician and make an appointment on your own.

Is Honey and lemon good for treating acne?

Logical not proven

Facial_pimples
Honey and lemon juice may both have antibiotic effectiveness that may diminish acne outbreaks and so it makes sense but I am not sure that its is truly effective in practice and may have other unforeseen complications
